It was the voice of the working-class, and of ‘Conservative Protestant Orange Toronto’ in 1881, and attracted the largest circulation daily in the city, but lost that position in 1932 to The Toronto Star and never regained it. For a while The Evening Telegram was located on Bay Street near King St. , but later moved on to Front Street. Some notable staff members – Andy Donato (cartoonist); Clyde Gilmour (CBC Radio broadcaster); Scott Young (sports reporter, father of Neil Young); Dale Goldhawk (later at CBC, CTV and Rogers); Ben Wicks (cartoonist), and so on. The Toronto Telegram folded on Saturday, Oct. 30, 1971, and almost 400,000 copies were printed — twice the regular print run. Long lines of people waited to buy the last-ever copy of the paper. <Information – CBC & Wikipedia>
I came to Toronto in Sept. 1971 and The Telegram was my paper of choice. Is that why it folded?
