Sun News Network hit the airwaves in April 2011 with heightened expectations and the watchful eyes of media observers who nicknamed the channel “Fox News North.”

The operations were plagued by tight production budgets that often left it with limited on-the-ground reporting and a large portion of its airtime dedicated to commentary and heavily editorialized news coverage.

The channel promised to balance the “lefty bias” of traditional Canadian media, but it also quickly drew controversy with its occasionally combative on-air approach.
