If my understanding is correct, it’s in a response to a bizarre new Canadian law which requires a certain amount of media be published by Canadians. I guess they basically take the same stuff they’d be seeing anyway but redirect it through a Canadian website.

The Canadian content requirements are part of bill C-11, which affects YouTube more than Google News. This story is about bill C-18, which is similar to Australia's law that requires Google and Facebook to pay for the privilege of linking to news sites.
