Ottawa’s alternative paper, Capital City, closed down after just over a year of publication, while its owner, Toronto’s NOW, bought 5% of its competition, X Press, the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies reports.

Michael Hollett, publisher of NOW, says he pulled the plug after Capital City had racked up considerable losses.
