Background: Canwest Global Communications was a major Canadian media company based in Winnipeg. It held radio, television broadcasting and publishing assets in several countries, primarily in Canada. Canwest entered creditor bankruptcy protection in late 2009, leading to the sale of the company's assets. Canwest's newspaper arm was sold through a newly-formed company Postmedia Network. The television arm was sold to Shaw Media on October 27, 2010. Following the sale of assets, the company has ceased to carry on business, and will commence bankruptcy proceedings.
