The Lindsay Post ceases publication on Friday June 14, the newspaper announced on its website.

 “It is with regret that we close The Lindsay Post, effective June 14,” publisher Darren Murphy said Thursday. “I have been involved with The Lindsay Post in different roles for almost 10 years and we have made numerous attempts to change the business model to try and make this operation sustainable. Unfortunately the market has not been able to support continued publication of the newspaper.

Six staff members were let go from the Sun Media newspaper. The twice-weeky broadsheet has existed for more than 152 years in  the City of Kawartha Lakes.

This has been a difficult business decision and does not reflect negatively on the great people of this community,” Murphy added.

Murphy said the Post’s website will redirect to its sister newspaper, The Peterborough Examiner. The Examiner will be sold in Lindsay stores and be available for home delivery in some parts of Lindsay. 

J-Source and ProjetJ are publications of the Canadian Journalism Project, a venture among post-secondary journalism schools and programs across Canada, led by Ryerson University, Université Laval and Carleton University and supported by a group of donors.
