Robin Anderson, two-time cancer survivor and former Toronto Sun columnist, was axed by the tabloid.
She confirms it in comments to TSF and on her new blog - Robin's Eye View, launched on the weekend.
"Hello everyone, and welcome to my new blog," she writes in her first blog posting. "As many of you know, I was one of the unfortunates cut from Sun Media’s columnist/journalist repertoire. This can only mean there is something more in store for me - something bigger and better.
"I’m now getting back up on the soapbox, but this soapbox has no word count or subject matter restrictions. Unfortunately, this also means I no longer have my own personal column editor.
"Yes, I’m pulling out my 'Strunk and White,' as well as my 'grammar and sentence structure for dummies' yet again."
Welcome to blogland, Robin.
