The Brunswick News is a owned by J.D. Irving ( d b a J.D. Irving, Ltd) whose conglomerate includes shipbuilding, oil, transportation, food processing.
J.D. Irving’s ownership of most major media outlets in New Brunswick has led to ongoing concern regarding control of the media. A report from the Canadian Senate in 2006 on media control in Canada singled out New Brunswick because of the Irving companies’ ownership of all English-language daily newspapers in the province, including the Telegraph-Journal.
