Canwest files for bankruptcy

2010-03-19

Queen’s University professor Vincent Mosco is available to discuss Canwest Global newspapers filing for bankruptcy protection.
“Canwest over extended itself. By borrowing large amounts money it thought it could extend beyond print and get into electronic media. And, like many other companies, Canwest failed largely because it bought into promises that new media would help it lower its labour costs and help it make more money. It didn’t,” says Professor Mosco.
Dr. Vincent Mosco is Canada Research Chair in Communication and Society and Queen’s University in Kingston. He received his Ph.D. in Sociology from Harvard University in 1975.
Professor Mosco is only available for phone interviews.
To arrange an interview, please contact communication officers Michael Onesi at 613.533.6000 ext. 77513 or e-mail michael.onesi@queensu.ca, or Kristyn Wallace at 613.533.6000 ext. 79173 or e-mail kristyn.wallace@queensu.ca at News and Media Services, Queen’s University.
