WinSun is 28

The Winnipeg Sun, an adopted sibling by way of Quebecor, turns 28 today.

Columnist Laurie Mustard marks the occasion with a 28 Reasons to Read the Winnipeg Sun column,

The paper was launched in 1980 by Al Davies, Frank Goldberg, Bill Everitt and Tom Denton and was often confused with the original chain of Sun tabloids.

Quebecor bought into the Winnipeg Sun in 1983 and it became a true Sun sibling, tabloid makeover and all, in 1999 when Quebecor bought Sun Media.

All kinds of Sun birthdays: Toronto at 37, Ottawa at 20.
