Layoffs and buyouts are looming at the country’s biggest daily newspaper.
In a memo to The Toronto Star staff, publisher John Cruickshank said the paper will outsource print page production and most design work.
The paper also plans to reduce staffing levels in parts of the newsroom and advertising division however an exact number hasn’t been announced.
Cruickshank said no large metropolitan news organization in North America has been spared the intense revenue pressures that The Star faces.
He said voluntary buyout packages will be offered.
