It was a bittersweet moment for the nearly 25 current and former employees of the Prince George Citizen on Friday night as the last copy of the daily edition of the newspaper rolled off the press for the final time. At approximately 8:45 p.m. the gears of the large printing press ground to a halt as the last copy came off the line. Many had tears in their eyes watching the final printing but that quickly turned to smiles and laughter as those in attendance for the pressroom gathering began sharing stories and reminiscing about their favourite Citizen moments. The first edition of the new weekly Prince George Citizen will be available on Thursday, October 3.
