Globe and Mail Says It Won't Publish on Labour Day Due to Low Ad Sales

By: Nanaimo Daily News

TORONTO - The Globe and Mail says it will scrap its Labour Day newspaper this year because of a lack of advertising revenue.

Publisher Phillip Crawley said the cost of production and delivery for the paper, combined with the number of subscribers who are going away on vacation for the weekend, made it a bad business decision to publish.

"Labour Day is always one of the worst revenue days of the year, and just doing the simple math, it cost us way too much to produce the paper," he said in an interview Tuesday, noting that the decision was made after observing long-term revenue patterns for the period.
