In response to:
Carleton Free Press closing down

The Carleton Free Press is shutting down almost a year after the upstart weekly newspaper first launched to take on the Irving-owned Woodstock Bugle-Observer.
Bob Rupert, editor of the weekly newspaper, said the economic downturn, combined with the pricing competition from the Bugle, was too much to overcome.
"All of this sort of converged and finally, today, just 20 minutes ago, we got together and decided that we had no choice," Rupert told the CBC on Monday afternoon.
Great, now Irving's competition amounts to a Camera- and Toothless-CBC, a smattering of bloggers and some student journalists.
Wouldn't J.D. and K.C. be proud?
Now the current batch of tax dodgers can head off for Bermuda for the winter and not worry about any unmanaged press back 'home',
