Stand up for community newspapers

This petition had 698 supporters

Newspaper giants Postmedia and Torstar are swapping 32 community newspapers and then closing them all for good.

Why? To funnel advertising revenue towards their flagship daily newspapers.

This business deal will seriously hurt communities across Ottawa and other parts of Eastern, Central and Southern Ontario, as each will lose their lifeline to community news and events.

Local newspapers build and sustain the fabric of our communities -- to silence them is to silence your community and you, the local resident.

Please lend your support to this petition to the Competition Bureau of Canada, which is investigating the matter.

Let your voice be heard.
