Publisher's note

Over the past two weeks since we announced The Question’s closure we’ve had an outpouring of kind thoughts, memories and thank yous.

It’s heartwarming to have so many recognize the contributions that this publication has made to the community over the past 41 years. I’d like to take this final opportunity to thank the community in return for its support.

To the newsmakers who allowed us to share their stories, to the citizens who called us with an idea, to the politicians and local leaders who made time for us and spoke candidly. You trusted us to document and record our shared history.

Thank you to our advertisers, without whom there wouldn’t have been a newspaper. As a free circulation publication we rely solely on advertising revenue to run our business: they pay the journalists’ wages, keep the presses rolling and employ a staff of locals, many of whom have been a part of The Question for decades. 

And I’d like to thank those staff and contributors — past and present — who dedicated themselves to the success of The Question.

There’s no doubt it’s often been a labour of love, and so many of you worked countless hours, taking pride in the quality of the product we delivered.   

Finally, a thank you to our readers. Please continue to stay informed, engage in community discourse and support local news.

Our sister publication, Pique Newsmagazine, will carry on with the same shared values for unbiased, honest reporting on community issues. We will be at council, sports events, and open house meetings to get the facts and report on the issues that matter to you. We will cover the athletes, the local teams, the artists and the festivals. We will host a wide variety of columnists and contributors with points of view that provoke discussion.  And we’ll continue to encourage dialogue in our letters and social media channels. 

As we close the doors on The Question era we look forward to evolving and changing with you by continuing to put “community first.”
