To celebrate the Toronto Sun’s 40th birthday, we offer a selection of the paper’s more, er, memorable front pages
The Toronto Sun, that “little paper that grew” (apparently), celebrated its 40th anniversary yesterday, looking back on its colourful history with pride. “The idea was to take the news seriously, but not take ourselves seriously,” said lifelong devotee Christina Blizzard in a Sun News Network interview. “So long as we’re having a lot of fun 40 years from now, I think that’s what it’s all about.” Pierre Karl Péladeau, president and CEO of Quebecor (the paper’s parent company), touted The Sun’s “unbeatable journalistic team.” Naturally, we decided to celebrate our own way—by sharing some of our favourite moments of the Sun’s unique brand of crack journalism from the last few years, plus a couple golden oldies.
