Ottawa South community newspaper folds

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.

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.
