The Bulletin ceasing print operations, moving to online-only

We have received unfortunate news that The Bulletin ( will no longer be offering a print version of their newspaper. This will be a loss to the downtown Toronto community since the focus was always on downtown issues and many local events were covered solely within their pages, often by Cabbagetown’s own Eric Morse ( We hope that the online version continues with as much focus as the print version has and we offer our best wishes to those affected by the changes.

Thanks for sharing. I’ve been with The Bulletin for almost 20 years and am very sad that the cost of printing and mailing a printed product have outrun our ability to fund the publication. We were (are) totally independent and ineligible for grants. The print run (and the mailing) was funded by our advertisers and–in leaner months–from our own pockets.

The Bulletin started to serve our Downtown core communities by filling an information void. It has always been our mandate to cover local stories from a unique Downtown angle, making strangers and buildings into neighbours and neighbourhoods.

When and if the economics allow, we will look at a return to print. In the interim, please keep sending your news to We hope that our readers will follow us online so that we can continue to cover local stories and support our Downtown core communities.

Want to help? Contribute, or fund a contributor. During our transition to an online product, we’re not generating ad sales to fund our writers. Email me at if you want to fund a writer’s honourarium or if you would like to write for us — meeting and event coverage is especially important when so many community meetings and events are taking place every night.

We are definitely sad to hear of this news. We’ll share your comments with our residents in our next newsletter and on social media too. Thanks for writing in.
