Winnipeg Free Press - Last Sunday Edition - October 25, 2009

Sunday was the last day the Winnipeg Free Press printed a full Sunday edition since 1985. Beginning this weekend, “On7” (appropriately titled) will be in its place on newsstands. Home subscribers won’t get the new paper delivered, and will have to schlep out to the store to buy it.

As publisher Bob Cox told ChrisD.ca, rates will not decrease for subscribers. The main reason being the super sized Saturday paper (Weekend Edition) will probably weigh somewhere in the area of 5 lbs.
