Western Standard Magazine closing down

October 5, 2007

The right of centre magazine, Western Standard, is shutting down its print edition.

To my deep regret, the Western Standard has decided to stop publishing our print edition.

It’s a purely financial decision. Even though our advertising revenues were stronger than ever, with marquee brands like GM, Mazda, BMW and Air Canada filling our pages, and even though we had the most loyal subscribers in the business, with an unheard-of 80% renewal rate, we just weren’t close enough to profit.
