The Canadian Jewish News, became a coronavirus casualty after it announced that its 9 April 2020 issue would be the last after 60 years. “Unfortunately, we too have become a victim of COVID-19,” president Elizabeth Wolfe said last week. “Already struggling, we are not able to sustain the enterprise in an environment of an almost complete economic shutdown.”  Bernie Faber, the former CEO of the Canadian Jewish News added, “There is no other paper. This was it.” So, along with everything else that’s going on right now, this just adds another layer of sadness.” There will be no print or internet edition.
