who we are

the newspaper

the newspaper is the University of Toronto's independent paper, and the largest student-run publication in Canada.

Founded in 1978 by editors Steven Petranik, Thomas Simpson and Ken Whitehurst, the newspaper has been publishing weekly or biweekly for 34 years without any financial support from the University of Toronto. We are entirely self-sufficient, relying solely on advertising revenue for our production costs. We are the campus's only truly independent voice, accountable not to shareholder or to investors, but only to U of T students and to the community we serve.

the newspaper is published by Planet Publications Inc., a non-profit organization. All U of T community members, including students, staff and faculty are encouraged to contribute to the newspaper.
