COVID-19 crisis: Most Canadians support bailout for media organizations, poll finds

I don’t know if you know this, but the National Post, and most Canadian daily newspapers — including the Toronto Sun chain, the Calgary Herald, Montreal Gazette, Edmonton Journal, etc., — they’re not actually owned by Canadians. They’re owned by a company called Postmedia, which is owned by a U.S. investment fund called Chatham Asset Management.
