Victoria Times Colonist to abandon Monday publication

The Victoria Times-Colonist says it will cease printing a Monday edition, effective June 22.

A story published in the Saturday edition and on its website says businesses around the world are facing challenging times and the Times Colonist is not immune. The newspaper says the cost of newsprint and staff salaries have presented the publication with unprecedented challenges as it begins its 151st year in the community.

The newspaper says it will cease publishing a Monday edition of the Times Colonist, starting June 22 but will increase content in the Tuesday and other editions.

The article says many North American newspapers have reduced their in-print editions, and several Canadian and U.S. newspapers have ceased publishing a Monday edition.

The Times Colonist is owned by a division of Canwest Global Communications.
