Quote, unquote: Their boxes? Likely gone; Our boxes? Not so much

“I foresee a future where there are no newspapers, unfortunately.I think digital technologies are going to ensure that that happens.”
-- Laas Turnbull, the publisher and editor in chief of The Grid, the Toronto weekly magazine owned by the Toronto Star, quoted in the Spring issue of Spacing magazine in an article about the gradual disappearance of newspaper boxes from the streets of Toronto. However he says he thinks of the 400 boxes his paper uses as an important part of the streetscape and "the most significant marketing tool in our arsenal."
