Seems like a good website however loaded with ads. Into sensationalism but then so many are these days

4 JavaScript web bugs for tracking/advertising companies (per Ghostery). Good privacy? Trustworthy?

"News" site does not present all the facts. More into sensationalism and fear-mongering than reporting valid information.

full of spy cookies, The Toronto Star websites contains a lot of hidden "web bugs". well known for exploitations. Beware !!!. Enter at your own risk. Make sure you have good anti-adware or anti-spy cookies to counter attack for spying.

The news reporting on this site is often shallow and appears to be written by individuals with very little experience. Most articles are sloppy, poorly written and lack thoroughness.

Politically biased

This propaganda rag is part of a network owned by Starcom that pushes socialist brainwashing onto stupid people.
It's dangerous to children.
It's also of course full of spyware cookies aimed at feeding them as much info about you as they can get.
Avoid this site and associated papers or sites.

the website is alright, however, full of hidden scripts and persistent third party cookies.

They have taken actions to protect your privacy and security.
