WinSun 30th

Updated 12/10/10 re video

The Winnipeg Sun marked its 30th anniversary at a party on Friday night, with PKP in attendance.

Even Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz showed up to celebrate the anniversary of the Nov. 5, 1980 launch of the paper by founders Al Davies, Tom Denton and Frank Goldberg.
The Winnipeg Tribune had folded and the Sun moved in to compete with the Free Press.

Quebecor bought the Winnipeg Sun from Thomson in 1983 and it became part of the Toronto Sun Family when Quebecor bought Sun Media in 1999.
