I've waited all day to post the information about the demise of the Halifax Daily News and its replacement starting Tuesday by a free daily operated by the owners of the News, by Torstar and by Metro International.
Here are some stories about it from our Canwest News Service, from The Canadian Press, and from the News itself.
The Halifax market is dominated by the Halifax Chronicle-Herald, one of Canada's few remaining independent papers, and has a vibrant television and radio scene. The challenge for the new Metro Halifax is to insinuate itself into the commuter cohort. Not all cities are served easily by public transit, where Metro has experienced its greatest successes.
