OttSun -3

Ottawa Sun sources say the newsroom casualties there total three:

Rachel Rowe, central desk, André Forget, a photographer (see photo), and Scott Taylor, a general assignment reporter.

Scott is described by one source as a "great guy and a wonderful reporter" and André is "one of the best photographers in the country."

Andre returned to Canada from Abu Dhabi after losing his livelihood when Transconintental Media closed the Halifax Daily News last February.

Only Rachel had been with the Ottawa Sun for more than a year.

"It's wonderful for morale and motivation just before Christmas and PK burbling on about maintaining quality journalism," a source said.


  1. Please PKP, take me. It would be the best Christmas present ever.

  2. Merry Christmas from your friends at Sun Media!
