No live coverage of acceptance speeches; no interviews with winners and losers; no footage of campaign workers celebrating in ballrooms; no street interviews; no interviews, period.
Guess it was cheaper for SUN TV to switch to a movie - FX - an hour after the polls closed than investing in something resembling big city TV coverage of a major election.
Meanwhile, speaking of Rob Ford, he should make one post-election promise - to lose 25 pounds in each of his four years in the mayor's chair.
He did not look the least bit comfortable during his acceptance speech.
Losing weight while in the public eye would be a plus for him and give weight-conscious men, women and children motivation to do the same.

The federal Tory "Party of Two" outcome comes to mind.
"We all had to get one or two hours of on-site training prior to election night. It worked pretty well.
"It was a first effort for social media crowd, so it added a bit to the suspense, especially in Calgary.
"Anyways, replates in the last couple of civic elections were no big deal and usually we were all in a bar before last call with somebody bringing in some inky copies of the city edition with pretty much all the results - except for a handful of polls.
"It was always a fun night and things always went smoothly with pizza for everybody (including the back shop) who was there."

As for Williams collecting a pension, do you get the feeling longevity is not in his cards, either by his own hands or the intent of others?
This could be one Canadian case where a life sentence will be a death sentence.

But for a multicultural city that has had 63 mayors since 1834, Toronto hasn't strayed beyond the Commonwealth for its mayors.

And you can read all about it - in the Edmonton Sun.
No mention of Diotte's $2.28 million lawsuit he launched against the tabloid earlier this year.

So she is American. Canadian newspapers across the country depended on Dear Ann and Dear Abby for decades.
If you want to wish the twice-married advice columnist a happy 51st birthday, circle Nov. 6.

"While the company may be trying to update records, I get a strange feeling from it. Why do they need to know this information? Are they going to turf people who don't have the level of education they want or expect?
Education is a plus, but it should not be the lone factor for employment.

In the good old days, the Toronto Sun would have waited for the first rescue for its front, but early deadlines being what they are these days, we're not sure if they will.
It should be a good day for print everywhere today.
Ace in the Hole, with a more positive ending.

Their abilities on the telephone could make or break a developing story.
When you think about it, we should have been providing them with treats.

Ex-CANOER October 6th 2010, 5:05pm What is most interesting is this editorial is published on the exact day when the entire technology team at CANOE.ca, as well as other employees in other divisions were given their pink slips by the company. PKP has obviously moved onto another plaything and once that loses its shine, it will be something else. CANOE has been on failing life support for more than 10 years. Once a leader, now, not even a follower.
So, what was the body count?
What's happening at Canoe?
Were there layoffs elsewhere in Quebecorland?

This is a rare op-ed column by PKP.
Our favourite paragraph:
A Toronto Sun editor e-mailed TSF to say today's op-ed piece is not the first by PKP, it is the third. PKP's two previous columns were published April 1, 2010, and Oct. 24, 2008.

Four employees in the production department of Sun Media's Northumberland Today were laid off Thursday, says a TSF tipster out Cobourg way.
It seems the Today's production department duties, including packaging of Sun Media's regional glossy Go magazine, have been moved to Barrie.
