Alberta weeklies

Mansoor Ladha, former owner of two Alberta weeklies that were merged by Sun Media in December and closed this month, laments the loss of his "babies" in the Edmonton Journal today.

The Calgary Herald devoted a full story to Ladha, who sold his Morinville and Redwater weeklies to Sun Media in 2004.

Ladha was owner/publisher of the Morinville and Redwater weeklies for 25 years. They were merged into the Morinville-Redwater Town and Country Examiner in December and the Examiner was closed March 11.

The Journal also says George Brown, president of the Alberta Weekly Newspaper Association, returned home from vacation last week to learn he had been laid off as editor and publisher of Sun Media's Devon Dispatch and Beaumont News.
