It is a sad day indeed for those journalists and editors. This speaks volumes for the state of print journalism in North America. We can be thankful, I suppose, that the Spectator is not shutting down entirely like some papers have in the US.

The Spectator needs to actually report on the news in Hamilton and do so in ways that are different from broadcast and social media. CH news is pretty much a rehash of stories from other networks. There is little in the way of investigative journalism about Hamilton politics, the economy, culture and so forth. The Spectator needs to do that digging and get people engaged and informed. There is a lot of junk on the internet and in other kinds of media but what I have always liked about print is that you could study a topic in greater detail and allow for ideas to develop.

I know .... I am a Luddite but here's to hoping something good comes out of this situation.
