Maybe Becauase It’s Colder Up There?

Unlike the tech hungry folks in the US, Canadians still like to get their news from newspapers.  A new survey of Canadian adults found that 73% of them still read a print version of their daily paper at least once a week.  And, only 4% of those north of the border get their news solely from online papers. Says the Media Daily News:

The Canadian newspaper readership data provides an interesting contrast to some recent surveys of American adults’ reading habits. Earlier this month, a survey of 1,040 people by AARP found that just 29% of adults read a print newspaper every day — a figure that can be compared to the “average weekday” figure of 44% for Canadian adults — even though these categories aren’t defined in exactly the same way. Furthermore, the AARP survey found that 35% of American adults don’t read a daily newspaper at all, compared to just 23% of Canadians.
