A look at Canada's leading magazines

A look at Canada's leading magazines

TORONTO — Canada’s venerable fashion magazine Flare and the news weekly Maclean’s are the latest casualties of dwindling print revenues. Rogers Media says it’s ending print editions of its slick glossy Flare in the new year, and shifting its long-running newsmagazine to a monthly schedule. Meanwhile, Canadian Business, MoneySense and Sportsnet Magazine will also leave store shelves in the new year while Chatelaine and Today’s Parent will see their editions halved. Here’s a quick look at each title: FLARE: This style bible has offered up a Canuck take on the world of fashion, beauty, relationships and culture since 1979. It currently publishes 10 issues annually and boasts a total circulation of 106,772. It will disappear entirely from newsstands in the new year. From then on, fashionistas will only have the website and app to get their style fix. MACLEAN’S: Billed as Canada’s only current affairs magazine, this weekly mag has been fuelling news junkies since 1905 with its mix of features, analysis and investigative reports in the worlds of politics, business, global affairs and culture. Currently boasting a circulation of 225,963, it’s set to drop to a monthly edition but will maintain a weekly version online, in addition to its website and app. CHATELAINE: Canada’s largest women’s magazine has been a leader in all things food, style and home decor, launching in 1928 and boasting a circulation of 451,222. It drops to just six editions annually from 12 issues a year. CANADIAN BUSINESS: Founded in 1928 as the eight-page newsletter Commerce of the Nation, Canada’s oldest business magazine dedicates itself to business and management strategy and innovation. It publishes 13 times a year with a circulation of 56,535. MONEYSENSE: Focused on personal finance and lifestyle, the 17-year-old MoneySense publishes eight issues a year with a circulation of 147,107. SPORTSNET MAGAZINE: The newest venture of the impacted titles, Sportsnet Magazine was founded in 2011, following in the footsteps of ESPN the Magazine. It publishes 12 issues a year with 68,920. TODAY’S PARENT: This family-focused mag offers quick tips for parents on the go and deeper features on health, discipline, behaviour and more. It has a circulation of 94,697 and drops...

Peres, remembered for tireless peace efforts, laid to rest

Peres, remembered for tireless peace efforts, laid to rest

JERUSALEM — Shimon Peres was laid to rest Friday by dozens of world leaders who praised Israel’s former president and prime minister for pursuing peace with an indefatigable spirit and optimism, even though his vision of a “new Middle East” was never fulfilled. At a high-powered funeral befitting the globe-trotting Peres, speakers including President Barack Obama recalled a seven-decade political career that personified the history of Israel by building its military while also pushing it toward peace. “He knew better than the cynic that if you look out over the arc of history, human beings should be filled not with fear but with hope,” Obama told the mourners, made up of delegations from 70 countries — an assembly of dignitaries unlikely to be seen in Israel again. “We gather here today with the knowledge that Shimon never saw his dream of peace fulfilled,” he added. “The region is going through a chaotic time. Threats are forever present. And yet, he did not stop dreaming and he did not stop working.” Peres, who shared a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 with former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, died Wednesday at age 93. Among the mourners were French President Francois Hollande, Britain’s Prince Charles, German President Joachim Gauck and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Despite the stalemate in peace talks, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas sat in the front row alongside other world leaders. Representatives from Egypt and Jordan also were present. Obama described the unlikely friendship he forged with Peres, given their vastly different backgrounds, and he likened him to South Africa’s Nelson Mandela. “It was so surprising to see the two of us, where we had started, talking together in the White House, meeting here in Israel,” Obama said. “I think both of us understood that we were here only because in some way we reflected the magnificent story of our nations.” He ended his comments by saying in Hebrew, “Toda rabah haver yakar,” — “Thank you so much, dear friend.” The gesture evoked one made by former President Bill Clinton 21 years ago, when he eulogized Rabin, who was killed by a Jewish nationalist....

Chretien on Shimon Peres: 'No regret'

Chretien on Shimon Peres: 'No regret'

JERUSALEM — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his Liberal and Conservative predecessors and political luminaries from around the world gathered Friday to mourn Shimon Peres — the Israeli statesman hailed by many as a dreamer and visionary who personified the hope for peace in the Middle East. Trudeau, joined by former prime ministers Jean Chretien and Stephen Harper, led a Canadian delegation to Jerusalem to attend the state funeral for Peres, who died Wednesday after suffering a stroke at the age of 93. Peres was devoted to serving his country and the people who elected him, Chretien said in an interview after the funeral. “People dump on people who serve in public life,” he said. “He did it all his life with no regret, always looking forward. It is a tough life to be a politician.” Mount Herzl national cemetery was brimming with political giants and dignitaries, including Prince Charles, U.S. President Barack Obama and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who sat in the front row alongside Peres family members. Trudeau sat beside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto in the second row of mourners while Harper, Chretien, interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose and Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion sat together in the next row. “Shimon never saw his dream of peace fulfilled,” Obama said during a heartfelt eulogy. “And yet he did not stop dreaming, and he did not stop working.” No one in the Canadian delegation was among the speakers at the solemn outdoor ceremony, which took place in sweltering early-autumn heat under a sprawling white tent. “It reminds me as a Canadian how special the relationship between Canada and Israel has been for decades,” Ambrose said afterward. Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion tweeted his own tribute: “Canada has lost a friend, Israel a father. Rest in peace, Shimon.” Peres, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, held every major office in Israel, including president and prime minister. He personified the history of Israel during a remarkable seven-decade political career and who came to be seen by many as a visionary and symbol of hopes of Mideast peace. When the Jerusalem Post asked Peres two years ago about his greatest...

Scarborough barber John Spanos turns in his scissors after 46 years

Scarborough barber John Spanos turns in his scissors after 46 years

People visiting John Spanos’ barbershop receive not only a haircut, but also comedy, social commentary and even political advice. “It would always be a fun place to come,” said cabinet minister and Scarborough Centre MPP Brad Duguid, a customer since Grade 6. “He (Spanos) became what I would call a bit of a neighbourhood icon.” The Scarborough barber is giving up his scissors after 46 years in business at 1907 Ellesmere Rd. “John has now been cutting hair in my family for three generations: my father, myself and my son,” Duguid said. “When John closes up shop at the end of the month, this neighbourhood is going to lose an important part of what is in many ways been part of our heart and soul here and a gathering place for generations.” Spanos greets customers with his joke of the day and chats about world events. “He has an opinion on everything,” said customer Gary Glaze, noting Spanos is “probably the most welcoming, sociable character I’ve ever met.” Duguid said his haircuts would also be an opportunity to get the “unvarnished truth about what people are feeling in the community.” “Every time I’m sitting in this chair, he gives me political advice, and sometimes I take it and sometimes I don’t,” Duguid added. “It depends on how close the razor is,” Spanos quipped. Who was the most famous customer? “We used to have Mr. Dressup (from the children’s TV series),” said Spanos. “When the kids found out that he’s coming, they’d come over and sit on the mat over there.” Spanos is also known for his barbershop polls during provincial and federal election campaigns. “The best kept secret in Canada is the fact you could get almost precise numbers by coming to John before an election after he does his count. He nails it,” Duguid said. In the last provincial election, Spanos’ poll was only off by two percentage points on the popular vote. “It was a little bit off on the Conservatives (two points higher) because we have some older people coming here,” Spanos said. Spanos has developed a loyal customer base...
