Information sources narrowing with newspaper closures
Local newspapers are going out of business.
Recently we have seen Barrie and Collingwood losing their local newspapers.
Our information sources are narrowing partly because of technology and partly because of falling readership. Democracy requires constant vigilance, which can only be achieved by multiple informative sources. One of those sources is a local paper which covers local interest. It is up to us to hold on to what we have. The saying, ‘use it or lose it’ also applies to our local press. It is up to us.
