Mi casa su casa

Now that Sun Media and Osprey are under the same Quebecor umbrella, word is experienced Osprey people are being moved to Sun newspapers.

Sources say Christina Spencer, longtime Osprey editorial employee (Ottawa Citizen, Kingston Whig-Standard) will join the Ottawa Sun's Parliamentary Bureau on Jan. 2.

Meanwhile, Terri Saunders, a reporter of note at the Cornwall Standard-Freeholder is also moving to the Ottawa Sun to bolster a newsroom depleted by Quebecor cutbacks.

While the Ottawa Sun newsroom needs new troops, observers wonder if established Osprey newspapers will continue to be cherry picked for the benefit of the Suns.

"It would be sad and ironic if they rob Peter to pay Paul," said one source.

The next few months should provide a clearer picture of the future of Osprey newspapers under Quebecor/Sun Media control.
