GananoqueToday.ca has been officially shut down. It was determined that the costs involved in running the site could not be met via local advertising support. However, that said there were a few local businesses that were very loyal and contributed to our cost of operation by purchasing web advertising space. We thank you for this support for without their advertising we could not have operated during our trial period of about 24 months.
As editor, I would like to thank our previous reporters for their hard work and presence in the community. Without their story coverage there would have been no point to producing this well read web paper. Our site received excellent readership from the local area as well as from followers around the world that had some form of connection to Gananoque and the area. We averaged over 5000 hits over a seven day period when we were in full operational mode.
I would also like to thank the many contributors who faithfully supplied us copy on various events each week. This group included the Gananoque Police Services who each Monday sent us an email listing their activities over the previous seven days.
It is my strong belief that what Gananoque Today.ca achieved in readership and coverage will be the way of the future in news gathering and reporting such to the public.
It was a great experience for myself and the reporters and we will miss the many events and the great people we met during our 24 months of operation.
This is not good bye but ... "till we meet again."Derek Walter, Editor
