In today's Toronto Sun

I've got to give the Sun credit... they continue to keep coming up with hockey-related front pages in the middle of August:
Here's the Sundin story and here's the one on Brandon Nolan's unfortunate border-crossing incident.

See, growing up, the Sun was always the paper in our house... so now that I'm in Vancouver, I spent the first year here being shocked that not ALL canadaian cities had coverage like this...
Which just made me think... no wonder so many players don't wanna sign with the Leafs.

Um, should it be Mats's?

Did the Province cut back their hockey budget or something?

No anonymous. If the word ends with an 's' then you just need an apostrophe to show the possessive.

Typical of the kind of hockey news to expect in August. I'm from Montreal, funny how we don't know who Saku is dating. Oh but if Guy Lafleur's son gets in trouble, front-page it is.

Actually, PPP, I think it's only if it ends in "s" as a plural that it takes the apostrophe alone, and that if it's a singular noun ending in "s" (like, say, dress), it still takes apostrophe-s.

Canadian Press style says that you should put a second s with most non-plural words that end in s, but the Sun, like most newspapers, just ignores that rule. The Globe will always have the second s, and the Star and Post sometimes do it and sometimes don't.

There isn't a hard and fast rule either way. Both are acceptable in general, though individual publications will have their own style sheets.

Hmm, Doogie, I think you are right and I typed too soon.

I'll have to check it out because like the 90s/90's thing it bothers me to see the wrong iteration.
