2014

  • Kamloops Daily News
  • Dawson Creek Daily News
  • Peace Arch News Daily
  • Vernon Morning Star Daily

Glacier Media announced the closure of the Kamloops Daily News and the consolidation of the Dawson Creek Daily News into the Alaska Highway News early in 2014. Black Press also turned the Peace Arch and Vernon newspapers into twice-a-week operations.

2015

  • Alberni Valley Times

Black Press purchased every newspaper Glacier Media owned on Vancouver Island (with the exception of the Times Colonist) in December 2014, and they shut down the Alberni Valley Times (and two other Island papers) the next year.

2016

 

  • Nanaimo Daily News
  • The Alaska Highway News

One of the papers Black Press purchased was the Nanaimo Daily News, which was shut down in January. In March, the Glacier-owned Alaska Highway News, which covers the Peace River region in northeast in B.C., announced they were “returning to its roots” as a weekly newspaper at the end of the month.

Other smaller B.C. newspapers that have completely closed since 2010

Quesnel Advisor (2010)
100 Mile House Advisor (2010)
Abbotsford Times (2013)
South Delta Leader (2014)
North Shore Outlook (2014)
Burnaby News Leader (2015)
New Westminster News Leader (2015)
Tri-Cities Now (2015)
Richmond Review (2015)
Oceanside Star (2015)
Campbell River Courier-Islander (2015)
Harbour City Star (2015)
Cowichan News Leader (2015)
Chetwynd Echo (2016)
Northeast News (2016)

 

In all of these cases (with the exception of the Chetwynd Echo), the closures have come shortly after Glacier Media or Black Press purchased the rival newspaper in the community from the other company.

Were we aware that the Province and Van Sun have removed their logos from the Harbour tower overlooking Coal Harbour? They were fixtures of that building for time immemorial.

Know it all.

Ya, it was only leased space.  They moved to East Van.

It's been that way for some time. Was in Van in May and went up the lookout. Could easily see that the logos were not present on that building.

 

Interestingly I found out that Vancouver Harbour Control is located atop that same building, it was quite visible from the lookout.

The developer is marketing approximately 40,000 square feet of office space here (large banners have been hung on the outside of the structure). They are calling it the “Victoria Press Building.”

The real estate team leasing up the new project approached Victoria Buzz to see if they might be interested in moving across the street, and into the new building.  That would be awkward if the TC was/is still there.

^Really? When the Colonist and Times were in the same building some called it the golden age of good-natured media rivalry.

Buzz has some pretty high profile local ad accounts (Victoria Royals, Clipper Vacations, Bay Centre, Twsassen Mills etc.) so I think it's a pretty extreme rivalry now in that department.  There ain't much good-natured about the sales manager at the TC, I can tell you that.

As long as Buzz is fair about how much content they lift and share. TC always complains about competition but in the end they win: RIP Pennysaver, Victoria News etc.

Good effort.

It is easy to remember. Tho I am a T-Towner. T-saw-was-sen. Say it ten times like that and you won't forget. The ferries is pronouncing it correctly tho just not how people that live there pronounce it. Like Pouce Coupé.
