Unless you somehow cover 100% of the G&M costs with your $1 subscription, you are still the product.

I'm just here to point out that your local library probably has free access to the digital edition through their website using your library card. It's worth checking.
If you still have a university library access or someone in your immediate family does... You definitely already have free access to the digital edition.

Yes, it's gotten smaller but it's not as bad as PostMedia. The National Post and the local papers have literally stopped printing on Mondays citing a drop in advertising revenue but leaving subscription rates the same.

Ongoing offers, yes. There was a deal last year for $6 for 6 months, stacked with $15 rakuten - I actually made $7 to sign up for 6 months lol

As others said - G&M is only "archive" ie no realtime news via the library.

Toronto libray does has the WSJ though, online only (no app access) - which is solid.

By no means am I suggesting that people don't pay for the news but one can't possibly be expected to subscribe to each and every news site. I wish there was a reasonably priced service like Netflix for news that you could pay for and never have to encounter these paywalls.
I think you're describing Apple News no? (atleast for iPhone users)

Some libraries have it, others do not. One that I belong to gives it to me in ProQuest, which is not my favorite reading format, but will do. Another library I belong to gives us access to PressReader. When I sign into PressReader using a VPN, as in been in the USA, the G & M is available to read and download. Without a VPN, and been in Canada, it will not give me access.

Markham uses PressReader which excludes G&M. I will try the VPN trick and take a look, thanks.

My sub ends in 3 weeks. Called in today to cancel. They offered me 2.49 per week, then 1.99 per week and then finally 0.99 per week but for 24 weeks. She went back and forth consulting their "imaginary" supervisor which responded in like 1 sec. Anyways, I cancelled and I'll sign up if this deal is still available in 3 weeks.

Yes but think u can just renew again after 30 days. My understanding is that they set it to 30 days so u don’t have to log in daily.

I understand you are looking for better deals and it's good you found a way. But guys, I urge you to support local media. I would rather read WSJ or NYT for free through Canadian libraries (they already must be paying) than not pay for Canadian news. It doesn't matter whether your political orientation is left or right, just pay for Canadian stuff. Hope I didn't offend you all.

P.S. This is coming from an immigrant who was in USA for many years and, by choice, moved to Canada. I love this country, the wonderful people, and am making every effort to support the local economy. I request that you do too.

No offence taken. I hear you. I’m not a frequent reader. I’ll pick up a paper once a week
Point taken tho
