Dose is dead. Meh.


Canwest’s print bid for the Canadian youth market, Dose, is no more. The plug got yanked yesterday on the print edition of the paper, though it will survive as a website. Personally, I thought it was a fairly well-put together, slick little rag, which isn’t surprising since it was more or less the pet project of one of the Canwest poobah’s children. But it wasn’t anything I’d read on a daily basis.

Full disclosure: I used to work for the Vancouver edition of Metro, one of Dose’s competitors, and I occassionally do a little freelance work for them.
