Like Conrad Black before them, CanWest chiefs Leonard and David Asper are fond of saying they can't control what Canadians think.
Digging in his heels, David Asper famously borrowed a lyric from R.E.M. in a December 2001 speech: "I can say to our critics, and especially to the bleeding hearts of the journalist community, that it's the end of the world as they know it, and I feel fine." DAVID A. ASPER Executive Vice-President Chairman, National Post Mr. Asper, a lawyer, joined the Company in 1992 and is currently an Executive Vice-President of Canwest and Chairman of the National Post Company. He is a member of Canwest's Executive Management Committee and oversees the corporate office functions as well as the Canwest corporate affairs group. He is a member of the Board of Governors of St. John's Ravenscourt School, an Honourary Director of The Canadian Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Institute and a Director of The Asper Charitable Trust.
