The Newspaper

Door to door distribution in Parc-Extension since 1993

Community newspapers such as the Parc-Extension News, have seen better days but are not on the way out yet. Studies show this segment of the industry is thriving, for publishers able to provide news and information about the community it serves. This type of news is, in general, of little interest to major media.  Overall, it is the community newspaper that remains the most trusted source of local news and information.
