Westmount Examiner, West Island Chronicle to close

MONTREAL – Two long-standing English weekly papers in Montreal are closing down.

The Westmount Examiner confirmed the news on Twitter.

It began publishing in 1935.

The West Island Chronicle, long considered a “voice of Montreal’s West Island”, started printing papers in 1925.

Both are owned by Transcontinental Media; the company reports three employees will lose their jobs.
