Partnership with Mary Brown’s lifts pay wall at all Postmedia properties in April.

Now more than ever, Canadians are hungry for accurate, credible information.

At Postmedia, we have been offering our audiences that kind of coverage for decades – in some cases, for centuries.

With misinformation and outright hoaxes out there these days, we are proud to be the first choice in news for many readers.

Like most news organizations, we have been asking our readers to support our journalism by paying to access our content online. The only exception has been coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, which we have been offering outside our pay wall as a public service.

Now, we are pleased to offer all of our relevant, credible news and information free of charge, thanks to a partnership with the Canadian company Mary Brown’s Chicken, which is based in Markham, Ontario and has about 170 locations coast-to-coast.

Thanks to Mary Brown’s partnership, you can consume as much content as you want without being asked to pay until the end of April.

We’re pleased and gratified by this generous vote of confidence in our journalism.
