Thanks for posting this news, Joey.

The loss of over a dozen veteran journalists from the Hamilton Spectator seems to cut the core of that institution. This is much more significant than the restructuring at CHCH-TV. While Dan McLean and Connie Smith were indeed veteran broadcasters, they were essentially news readers. The Hamilton Spectator, on the other hand, is losing much of its "original thought" production. Paul Wilson, among others, will be missed. It will be interesting though to see how the new hires impact upon the direction of the organization and the presentation of its news and views.

One also wonders whether this restructuring is a harbinger for the end of the print version of The Hamilton Spectator in the not too distant future.
