The Neepawa Press, as I said, was started in 1896. By 2009 or 2010 the private owners—and there had been several over the years—decided to sell to a company called Glacier Communications, which owned dozens and dozens of publications, mostly in western Canada. They wanted to buy ours as well because they knew that to have them combined would give them some strength.
I didn't like the idea. I didn't like how they ran newspapers. I still don't. I've made it quite clear to them in writing and otherwise. They ran the place into the ground. They thought they would push me and my family out of business, which didn't happen.
