Despite its financial troubles, CanWest continues to be a leading source of Internet News for most Canadians. Up until November 2008, a large number of Canadians were using Canwest’s www.canada.com as their source of Internet News with over 300,000 visitors per day. However, there has been a significant decline in the Internet traffic for Canada.com since January 2009.
Currently, the globe and mail leads the Toronto Star in Internet traffic even though both newspapers are experiencing a decline in their Internet traffic.
The the pendulum for Internet based news however has swung to the web sites operated by the two leading TV news channels in Canada. CBC.ca boasts the highest traffic at less than 300,000 visits per day followed by CTV.ca.
