TA: Sooo, can anyone tell me what the major audience of newspapers in Canada was in the 1820s - 1830s?
Blonde MIT girl: Oh, the elites... you know, like, ummm, like the Canadian royalty!
TA: .... Ummm, I don't think there was any royalty IN Canada in the 1830s... I was thinking more along the lines of merchants? Or, umm, lawyers?
Girl: Oh... Yeah, them too.
