  Broadcasting - Commission Letter to Torstar Corporation Alleging Breaches of Sections 21(3) and 9 of the Broadcasting ...
Torstar argued, among other things, that the "first come, first served" requirement was not intended to allow a person to stand indefinitely in the way of other parties who are prepared to proceed.
Further, Torstar submitted this requirement should apply not simply to the first person to express interest, but rather to the first person who expresses an interest and is ready, willing and able to provide service in a reasonably expeditious period.
In contrast, Torstar stated that its expression of interest, dated 26 June 1996, was unconditional and that it would launch within 90 days of finalizing a carriage agreement, would accept carriage on a restricted channel and would agree to pay whatever rate the Commission deemed to be appropriate.

  TorStar and the truth: an exercise in fantasy!   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Newspaper publisher TorStar is having such trouble conning people into buying, let alone reading, its products that it's decided to abandon whatever it's been doing for decades in favour of trying journalism.
A TorStar paper, any TorStar paper, setting out to publish the truth about our society, to present that truth to our leaders and to demand an answer, would be like my grandmother donning tights and tank top to head for a rave at The Docks.
Indeed: because the TorStar chain directed to ASK WHY, to present readers and their leaders with fundamental truths, to argue that those truths - not the more usual litany of fallacies and fantasies - are the roots of our burgeoning problems, would tear our whole socio-political structure apart.

As chairman of the five family trusts that control Torstar through their collective 96% stake in the class A voting shares, Honderich had returned to the Star in a much more powerful position than when he left.
On top of that, the chief executive of Torstar Corp., which owns the Toronto Star, and book publisher Harlequin Enterprises, has been under siege from investors and industry analysts for the company's mediocre performance.
Not because the CEO doesn't have a firm grip on the loyalty of Torstar's independent directors, but because as representative of the controlling families, Honderich could have been a powerful dissenting voice if the strategy involved deep cuts at the Star.
