Out of London

Philip R. McLeod, co-founder of The Londoner in London, Ontario, is parting company because the weekly has become more corporate than community under Quebecor.

McLeod co-founded The Londoner with Gord Hume in 2002. Hume left when the Bowes paper was purchased by Quebecor, but he stayed on as editor.

"(I'm) 'retiring' at least from The Londoner," McLeod, in the news biz for more than 30 years, told the paper. "I'm done at the end of May."

He said the paper they started has become more "corporate" and less "community" so it’s time for him to pass the reins to someone else.
