Canwest sending jobs to India

The Regina Leader Post admitted axing nine positions in ad production and outsourcing them to India and the Phillipines in response to “the economic crisis”. Wonder if reporters’ jobs are the next to go. Given that the LP has a monopoly position in Regina and should be bulletproof, I wonder if the chain is suffering that badly, or whether it’s just another move to cut costs at the nearly bankrupt publisher (it keeps pushing its deadline back to come up with a payment plan for its creditors.)
