To our readers, advertisers and community:

We at The Journal recognize that in order to survive, businesses need to adapt to changing
market conditions. It’s been a difficult couple of years for everyone, and the newspaper industry is no exception. With reduced revenues, The Journal has undergone significant changes, including most recently, taking a summer hiatus as we prepare to adapt once again, making the difficult but necessary decision to eliminate our print product.

Rest assured, our team remains committed to providing quality, local news and information that’s accurate, unbiased, timely, convenient to access, and FREE. The Journal will be available entirely online, with the added bonus of a free News Bulletin delivered to your inbox every afternoon. Our daily email will keep you up-to-date on Sarnia-Lambton news, features, sports, community events and more. It’s easy: just visit www.thesarniajournal.ca and sign up, starting next week.

Keep watching for our enhanced website as we prepare to re-launch this month. You will be able to access all the latest headlines, including all our archived content. We’ll continue to report stories about the events and people of our community — factually, fairly and with compassion. We welcome your submissions; keep sending us your events, team photos, guest columns and story ideas. And don’t forget to let advertisers know you when you see their ads on our website.

The Journal began as a free publication, and we intend to keep it that way.

Finally, we want to thank you, our community, for sticking with us through these challenging times. Our loyal readers and advertisers are our lifeline, and we’re asking for your support through this transition.

Thanks for reading.
