If I had to hazard a guess, I would say the title is missing the fourth word "obtain".

Being a more basic sort of bloke, I was thinking 'get'

I notice that Sunday was mentioned by the OP as if the rest of the week was okay. Either that or they want a Sunday lie-in

Where I am, there are no Sunday papers. (I assume it's a religious thing) Perhaps that's what the OP meant.

A few years ago I used to cycle downtown on Sundays to a shop that sold newspapers from many countries and come back home with the paper from Halifax, NS. At least it was semi-local. In Montreal I used to enjoy the 7 day a week Gazette.

In some big cities the Sunday edition is an extra-large thing with expanded entertainment section as well as some other things, and the extra cost is justified. I don't know if the Vancouver papers have that. Before the Globe and Mail went national it had a great Sunday edition; about an inch thick and you could spend all morning going through it. I've seen a Los Angeles paper that was similar.

Like that in the UK too...then they used to have big Saturday editions too.
Interesting the G&M used to do it. I used to buy it on Saturdays and save it for the Sunday
It's not sold in the province now.

Wow.....I had heard that the Globe and Mail wasn't sold in Newfoundland. Physical copies of newspapers are going to be rapidly disappearing in the next few years.

That's been predicted for a long time now. Long may it not happen.

Looking at their subscription options appears The Province has a Sunday issue, but the Vancouver Sun does not. (Don't confuse the Vancouver Sun with various other Sun papers they are not the same level of newspaper)

When I was a kid the Sunday paper was huge, of course it contained the regular news sections, plus all the retail flyers, coupons, entertainment, the weekly TV guide type magazine, a weekly news magazine, biggest day for classified section as well, it was so big, could take half a day for my mom to read it all...lol
