Newspapers Dying? Well, Tory Backers Keep Trying to Buy Torstar - 2020-07-09
Newspaper chain Torstar has confirmed it has a second bidder to buy it.
The new $58-million bid by brothers Matthew and Tyler Proud — both Toronto tech company CEOs — is for $6 million more than the previous bid by Nordstar.
But a scan by The Tyee finds other key figures in the rival bid, like the first, appear to have a political donation history that includes conservative candidates, including towards leadership campaigns for Maxime Bernier, Doug Ford, Kevin O'Leary and Patrick Brown.
