Sing Tao Daily lays off Canadian copy editors, translators

Sing Tao Daily has laid off its Canadian copy editors and translators, opting to send the jobs to Hong Kong in a bid to cut costs in a difficult advertising market that has seen newspapers across the country turn to outside agencies to handle their stories. 
 The newspaper is a partnership between Torstar Inc. and Sing Tao’s Daily’s Chinese holding company. It doesn’t release circulation figures, but vice-president of operations Peter Li said Thursday that about 200,000 readers a week flip through its pages.
