Hollinger Inc.


Hollinger Inc.

Hollinger Inc. (tsx|HLG.C) is based in Toronto, Ontario Canada. It is the parent company of Chicago-based Sun-Times Media Group, whose primary holdings include a group of Chicago newspapers. Notable among them is the "Chicago Sun-Times".

Hollinger Inc. is controlled by Canadian-based Ravelston Corporation, which was set up as a personal holding company for Canadian-born businessman Conrad Black. Ravelston was placed in receivership in the summer of 2005.

The company began as Hollinger Gold Mines in 1909 and later became Hollinger Mines, owner of one of the world's largest gold mines near Timmins, Ontario. It was acquired by E.P. Taylor's conglomerate, Argus Corp., before being acquired by Conrad Black.

Hollinger Inc. declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy shortly after the conviction of media mogul Lord Black.
