An edition of Ottawa South Community Voice from September 2018.
The Ottawa South edition of the Community Voice newspaper will no longer print.
The paper’s editor Patrick Uguccioni tweeted they had to pull the plug because of low advertising revenue. “We just couldn’t get enough advertisers on board to make it work,” he wrote.
He added that their Kanata-Stittsville paper and a recently-started edition serving West Carleton are “going gangbusters”.
Several residents, plus city councillors for the south area, expressed that the paper will be missed.
Sad to see the Ottawa South edition of ‘Your Community Voice’ has published their final issue. Glad other editions are doing well. Thank you for your service in keeping the public informed and engaged.— Jean Cloutier (@AltaVistaWard18) April 30, 2019
I am saddened to learn from the Publisher, that the Ottawa South Community Voice Newspaper folded today and no subsequent editions are forthcoming. This paper provided an important & valuable medium to share information & learn about the community. It will be missed tremendously— Riley Brockington - City Councillor, River Ward (@RiverWardRiley) April 29, 2019
Sorry to hear Erin. You're a pillar of the community! @BanffComHouse— Eric Collard (@EricEdCollard) April 29, 2019
The Community Voice newspapers opened in response to the closure of Metroland’s stable of community papers after they were acquired by Postmedia Network, in 2017.
Erin McCracken, who covered Ottawa South for the Community Voice, has been re-assigned to their West Carleton paper.
