Corus-owned Global News has cut nearly 70 jobs across Canada, including 21 in Vancouver, according to the union.

Unifor says camera operators, reporters, anchors, control room staff, make-up artists and other production crew received layoff notices in newsrooms across Canada, with Vancouver taking the biggest hit with 21 job cuts.

“Fewer journalists will be out gathering news from every region from Vancouver to Halifax,” said Unifor president Jerry Dias, in a statement. “If the Maritime newscasts now come from Toronto — how can you still call that local news?”

Unifor says the local evening newscasts in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick will be anchored and broadcast from Toronto starting Monday.

Unifor is asking the CRTC to review local news and make strong local coverage a binding condition of license, before it’s too late, as part of the union’s ongoing #savelocalnews campaign.
