This duopoly, according to News Media Canada president and chief executive officer John Hinds, has made it extremely challeng- ing for local news providers to compete on a number of fronts. We're up against big firms with vast amounts of data and savvy algo- rithms, and competing for digital ad dollars. "When you've got 70 to 80 per cent of the digital ads being sold by two players, and they are not Canadian players, that's a real problem," said Hinds. "We need to be in a po- sition where we can continue to have viable business models that will allow us to provide news and information to our citizens." It's no secret the newspaper industry has taken a significant financial hit. Newsrooms, here and across the globe, have been impacted. Reports suggest more than 100 local news outlets have been shut- tered in Ontario since 2008, leaving some citi- zens to live in news-poor areas. Service re- ductions at other media companies mean fewer boots on the ground to report on impor- tant issues affecting your community. Reduced advertising has a direct influ- ence on the type of journalism a news media business is able to produce. It's one of the many risks identified in a July report by Australia's Competition and Consumer Commission, which carried out an inquiry focused on the impacts of digital platforms such as search engines, social media and dig- ital content aggregators have on consumers and businesses, including news media busi- nesses. The commission made 23 recommen- dations that called for regulatory and legisla- tive changes, the creation of codes of con- duct, as well as further inquiries to examine specific tech services. This type of thorough examination of the digital marketplace and its challenges is des- perately needed here to ensure businesses are competing on a level playing field. Canada might be late to the game -- the European Union and United States have each launched antitrust investigations on "mar- ket-leading online platforms" -- but better late than never.
