the St.Catharines and Thorold area newspaper. It provides us with the local
news, advertising and it keeps us in touch with what is happening all over the
world. It was first owned and runned by the Burgoyne family and was printed in
St. Catharines but, was sold last year to Southam Inc. and has started to be
printed in Hamilton. Southam Inc. also owns other papers such as The Hamilton
Spectator,The Ottawa Citizen and The Kingston Wig. Here are some questions that

Catharines with the daily news about the city and all over the world.
