This week on Inside the Village: a dark day for local journalism in Ontario. Toronto Star publisher Nordstar Capital LP placed its regional newspaper business, Metroland Media Group, into bankruptcy protection. The move wipes out 605 jobs — including 68 of the company’s 200 journalists — and spells the end of the print edition for 70 weekly newspapers read by a combined 4.2 million people. Frisco and Scott talk about what this means for the future of local reporting across Ontario — and why Village Media remains as committed as ever to the cities and towns we serve across the province. Also on the podcast: our favourite Sasquatch hunter. And he has evidence! Believe what you must.
