The TorStar cuts

Torstar Corp., owner of the Toronto Star, Canada’s biggest-circulation daily, said in a press release that it will cut 160 jobs in its newspaper division. A report by Reuters said the job cuts come as “the book and newspaper publisher copes with a declining newspaper market.” The news starkly contrasts with a release the previous week from the Canadian Newspaper Association of data that suggests the Canadian market is healthy, in comparison with the U.S. market.
