As of 2006, the Post is no longer distributed in Canada's Atlantic provinces and the territories. As of 2017, the Post is no longer a daily newspaper, publishing on a reduced schedule and transitioning subcribers to electronic delivery.
McDonalds 365 Black Awards - 2006 Iran controversy - Netflix
On May 19, 2006, the newspaper ran two pieces alleging that the Iranian parliament had passed a law requiring religious minorities to wear special identifying badges. One piece was a front-page news item titled “IRAN EYES BADGES FOR JEWS” accompanied by a 1935 picture of two Jews bearing Nazi-ordered yellow badges. Later on the same day, experts began coming forward to deny the accuracy of the Post story. The story proved to be false, but not before it had been picked up by a variety of other news media and generated comment from world leaders. Comments on the story by the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper caused Iran to summon Canada's ambassador to Tehran, Gordon E. Venner, for an explanation. On May 24, 2006, the editor-in-chief of the newspaper, Doug Kelly, published an apology for the story on Page 2, admitting that it was false and the National Post had not exercised enough caution or checked enough sources.
