Montreal newspaper dumps print edition, goes web only

Montreal newspaper The Monitor, founded in 1926 to serve the English speaking community in Montreal will cease print publication Thursday (Feb 5) and will switch to an online only presence.

The paper, owned by Transcontinental has a weekly circulation of around 35,000 copies, and was reported to be losing money for the last 6 years.

Three staff members have been cut, with the remaining four to contribute to the papers site, which also pulls content from AP and other Transcontinental properties.
