While most media outlets cover media day at the Canadian International Auto Show, the Toronto Star covers the entire show because our Wheels section puts out a 24 page tabloid paper every day at the Auto Show. The paper's are available at the entrances to the halls and filled with pictures and stories behind the cars and displays.
