Canada's National Post newspaper will go without its Monday print editions for nine weeks this summer in a move that will lower its newsprint costs. Company spokeswoman Phyllise Gelfand said Wednesday that the company will still publish a digital edition. It won't go to the presses starting June 29. Parent company Canwest Global Communications Corp. is grappling with debt problems and is working to meet revised deadlines with creditors. National Post was founded as a national conservative voice in 1998 by media magnate Conrad Black. It has a circulation of about 1.2 million, making it about the sixth largest Canadian newspaper by circulation. The Toronto Star has about 3.2 million circulation. Earlier this year, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper converted itself into an online-only operation after it failed to find a buyer. Online page views then dropped. In Canada, the Halifax Chronicle-Herald canceled its Sunday paper, while the Halifax Daily News shuttered its operations.
