Last week, Canadian newspaper publisher Black Press closed two Vancouver Island newspapers and laid off nearly 20 staff at another in a restructuring of resources after purchasing a number of titles from its area competitor.

 

The Oceanside Star, in Parksville, B.C., and Courier-Islander, in Campbell River, B.C., both published their last issues on Mar. 26 and 27, respectively.
