It appears that the National Post is pulling out of Saskatchewan and Manitoba and terminating many (all?) of its newspaper boxes in Central Canada

Yeah, I noticed that the Post newspaper box at my bus stop had a notice in it saying they weren't going to be stocking it anymore after some date in November (forget when).

I thought the N666 Post was only available as a freebie when you stay in hotels. Who would have thought that they had newspaper boxes or that it was on sale somewhere.

Actually, the Post is only 10 years old.

Home delivery in Saskatchewan stopped some time ago, in fact.

There are also noticeably fewer retail outlets (e.g. convenience stores, supermarkets) carrying the NP in SK.
