Try calling the newspaper and asking for more papers where you pick it up.
We've tried that several times but they usually have some stpid excuse that doesn't make much sense. I think the real reason is their delivery person is almost brain-dead and they just set and put out a fixed amount per community mailbox.

What's really odd to me as I thought newspapers got most of their financing from their ads which was based on the number of newspapers they distributed or had subscribers for.

Anyway, I guess that's the way it is. But I shall have to check with the Local corner Stores as as I believe they are left with some free copies as well, but I'll just have to get up earlier to get a copy I guess.

Call and ask for the publisher or email to [email protected]. If you end up talking to someone in the office the likely hood of success goes to near zero.

Good luck.

I think I shall just take a glance at the online E addition every so often now that I have found that it exists, even if it does seem much thiner than the real copy, and the local fliers that often interest us are available separately and also display and perform a bit better.

But thanks for the thought and suggestion.

If you want action you might want to go and speak to an advertiser with the publication that you do regular business with and ask if he could phone the paper on your behalf and ask them why you can't get a copy.

As a guy who spent 42 years in newspaper, most of them as publisher of individual papers and 12 of them as COO of 165 papers, I can assure you that was the type of call I dreaded. Not to mention an issue that I corrected immediately.

You're welcome!

Rebel Media’s Alberta correspondent’s paycheque is directly subsidized with the help of a foreign billionaire
It turns out Rebel Media’s coverage of Jason Kenney is funded with foreign money.

Alberta’s Premier has been aggressively promoting a conspiratorial smear campaign to paint environmentalists and other critics as “foreign-funded special interests,” even promising a public inquiry into “foreign-funded meddling.”

But Kenney’s campaign to silence his critics, compared by some to the politically-motivated witch hunts of US Senator Joe McCarthy, might be a little awkward given Kenney is himself supported by “foreign-funded activists.”

Keean Bexte, an early Kenney supporter who later went on to become Rebel Media’s Alberta correspondent, now receives paycheques directly subsidized through a foreign entity called the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Hello, Bigot.

Is this better or worse than Canadian MSM receiving $600 million taxpayer dollars? Or MotherCorpse a billion $$$ plus?

Or, if it's the foreign element that has your tender sensibilities offended, what about all the foreign money spent to influence Canadian politics & elections (Tides)?

What's the problem? You seemed to have no problem with the Liberals giving money to to mainstream media outlets.

And they're shocked (SHOCKED, I tells ya!!!) to find their ratings in the sewer.

The Biggest Day in "Real Media" Fake News This Year?

Quote:
Today was a truly epic day for Fake News from our very professional, very conscientious professional press corps which would never lie to us or pump out clickbait lies for money to save their dying industry.

Is this what the media will be doing from now until the election day?

Will Google and FaceBook continue giving them preferential treatment and allowing them to decide what "Fake News" is, despite them pumping out more Fake News than a dozen Macedonian Content Farms?

Black NYT Writer Mocks Blacks Testifying Against Slave Reparations: They ‘Have No Apparent Qualifications Other Than Being Black’

Quote:
A black writer for The New York Times, apparently incensed that other blacks might not support the move toward reparations for American slavery, ripped the black witnesses testifying against reparations, tweeting that the witnesses “have no apparent qualifications other than being black.”
