Tear Down This Wall...

Just a heads up

The paywall at National Post is down and access is free for all coverage 'til the end of this month

FYI

thanks for letting us know unclefester, reading the news online, (and listening to it on the radio) seems to be the least stressful way to stay up to date and not overwhelmed.

newspapers, the old fashioned kind, that smelled of paper and ink and would leave your fingertips smudgy, man I miss 'em

RadioWiz has been advocating a cheap/free Toronto Star for months so National Post obviously stole his idea; let's give credit where credit is due

This is great, but it was mentioned here recently that it's because of a sponsorship by Mary Brown's Chicken.

It would be great to see something similar with the Star. But my guess is that it would cost more for a company to do this, because the Star would have more people accessing its website. However, the Star is making some of their virus-related coverage available for free.
