If Tor Star ends up winning the bid and Canwest newspapers, it would mean the end of any neutral or unbiased reporting.

I wonder if there is anything illegal about a monopoly or if anything else can be done to stop this.

I wonder if this goes through, could there be a breach of anti trust regulations etc. I'm not up on the regulations, but surely one paper having a biased stranglehold on all the news isn't good for Canada.

Quote:
TORONTO, April 29, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Torstar Corporation, publisher of the Toronto Star, is emerging as a favorite to buy cash-strapped Canwest Global Communications Corp.ís insolvent newspaper assets, including the National Post, the Globe and Mail reported.

The National Post is seen by many to be the last, if sometimes ambivalent, voice of conservatism in the Canadian press, while the Toronto Star, often referred to as the Red Star by critics, has a long history of liberal bias in its reporting of stories related to traditional morality and any institutions supporting that morality.
