English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

There are many papers in English, and TV is widly available. Cost is same as in the USA. - Jan 2011

The main paper of Canada, the globe and Mail, is available for home delivery or at newspaper stores. You can also have the New York Times, or Financial Times delivered to your house. - Sep 2010

Yes, but the Canadian regulatory authorities are Ameri-phobic, so all TV must contain a certain percentage of Canadian content (I forget what percentage).This means that you can watch some of your favorite American TV shows, but it will be mixed with a lot of really bad Canadian TV (think 1970s style BBC).Cable is EXPENSIVE, service is poor and there is no competition. - Oct 2009
