    The Huffington Post continues to make news this week, with a Vancouver Sun report indicating that the news site — infamous for not paying its contributors — is coming to Canada.

    According to the Sun, a job listing on LinkedIn says the Post, which was recently acquired by AOL, has an opening for a full-time senior news editor to work on the new HuffPost Canada news sections.

    The job posting reads as follows:

    “Calling all news junkies: The Huffington Post is coming to Canada! We need the best of the best at the helm to plan, execute and manage the day-to-day responsibilities of the national news strategy for one of the most exciting media brands online today. Over 1.5 million Canadians are already HuffPost readers.”

    “We want to keep them reading by coupling the best content they already know and love with a fresh new take on Canadian news and politics, featuring the best Canadian names as our contributors.”

    The job is located in Toronto and calls for applicants with more than eight years of experience in news and political content — and a minimum of three years online experience.

    The Huffington Post has recently decided to expand its global reach, with plans to launch a UK edition this summer.
