Washington Post Closing Canadian Bureau

April 5, 2007

The Washington Post will close its Canadian news bureau following the lead of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

“Frankly where they’re based is less important than what they do in the world we live in now,” David Hoffman, manager of foreign news for the Washington Post, said in an interview with CBC Radio.

In the last three months the Washington Post’s man in Canada has reported on everything from trappers in Yellowknife to separatists in Quebec.

That’s crazy… where will Americans get their Canadian trapper news from? You can listen to this CBC Radio Podcast for the story. Click on the player below to listen [2.5min].
