The Chronicle of closure of the Daily News

While we have yet to hear the definitive date for the last issue of the Daily News, the feedback and farewells have already begun.

As we have for other important events and issues in the city, we offer up this archive of items that provide a snapshot of the emotions and facts of closure of the 99 year old Prince Rupert tradition.

Our blog items on the developments are highlighted in red, other information we've discovered from around the region, province and country are in blue.
