Canada’s largest newspaper is cutting dozens of jobs from its newsroom, outsourcing editing duties that are increasingly seen as too costly for cash-strapped dailies trying to cope with falling advertising revenue.

The paper plans to outsource copy editing and page design to Pagemasters North America, which offers those services at a steep discount to what the papers typically pay inhouse.
