From September 12, 2020 to October 9, 2020, the digital copy will cost me $29.36.
In 2018, it cost $25.16. I’ve been a customer since at least 2016.
Or that is as far as my payment history will allow me to see.
So much for ‘basic’ service.
I have had little use for the paper, in that I’ve read it, faithfully, once or twice a week.
Mostly, I skim through it.
I’ve written a few blogs about related articles on topics of interest.
I like the newspaper, and I encourage others to read and subscribe to the service.
It is a great way to get some news coverage and an important ‘go to’ news source.
I feel there is a better way to keep up with the news.
I like to support good coverage, listen and read the local, municipal and national news.
Most of this is covered in the Globe and Mail and other similar papers in other countries around the world.
They keep a close control over their financial interest.
And they work hard to keep it running smoothly and on time to turn a fair profit.
All in all I give it a 7 or 9 out of ten. Please read more about the importance of news, the history and the need to support ‘good’ news coverage.
I highly recommend Wikipedia as an information source for facts and accuracy.
Freedom is my goal for staying informed and doing my part . It requires that I do a reasonable job and try hard to learn and understand the world I choose to support.
Lastly, a word about free will and anonymity. Better choices are hard to make without them. I choose to live with compassion, proper use of impressions and without necessarily making it public knowledge.
I think I can be safer and healthier this way.
I am grateful for the resources to live in this world.
Good luck with your journey and happy trails…
