Another closure

The ever-shrinking Sun Media properties will soon be thinner when the Welland Tribune's office in Port Colborne closes, says a TSF tipster.

"The Post Colborne office has existed for over 80 years," says the tipster.

The Tribune, one of the Osprey papers purchased in the summer of 2007, lost eight employees on Black Tuesday in December.

To add insult to injury, the tipster says

"First, Sun Media eliminated water coolers to save money, now papers like the Welland Tribune have cancelled the front floor mats. These keep the dust down in summer and deal with snow- covered boots in winter."

Okay now, that's water coolers, door mats, funeral flowers, counselling services, awards expenses and sponsorships, sabbaticals, Christmas bonuses, the Canadian Press (as of next year), Monday editions at some dailies, weeklies padlocked, freedom of choice in newsrooms, etc., etc.

Oh, and a thousand or so employees.

But we digress. There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

And we know PKP's dealin' is far from done.

  1. I doubt PKP even knows where Port Colborne is. Another blow to another community served, well allegedly served, by Quebecor/Sun Media
