Are there really only two suppliers of newsprint in the whole world, as the RCNclaims?

Dear **********,

There is a fight underway in Washington D.C. to save jobs in the printing, publishing and news industries.

We have joined the STOPP coalition, a group of printers, publishers, paper suppliers and distributors that represent mostly small businesses in local communities that employ more than 600,000 workers in the United States.

We are fighting against a single newsprint mill, NORPAC, that is owned by a New York equity fund, with no additional pulp or paper operations in the United States or globally. NORPAC has filed a petition with the U.S. government to request a tax on Canadian newsprint.

This will increase our costs and will threaten our ability to provide real, honest local news. We need your help to protect jobs and the future of our industry.

Bottom line – we are fighting for you. And we could use your help!
