Missing the point on democracy

I watched the September 24 episode of CityLife on MaTVOutaouais with interest. Lily Ryan, publisher of the Pontiac Journal, and Melanie Scott were in conversation with the show’s host, Linton Garner, about the Quebec election campaign. I love the way Ms Ryan gets right to the point and how she gets her message across.

I particularly enjoyed the point she made about the politicians wanting to be covered in local newspapers, but not committing to buying advertisement. I fail to understand the logic of acknowledging the importance of local newspapers and the role they play in our democracy, but then turning their backs on the very same media.
This, and all past episodes are available to watch anytime on the website of MaTV.
