The End of The Montreal Mirror – Interviews with Mirror Writers Chris Barry and Jonathan Cummings

Interviews with two of the Mirror's writers shortly after it was announced that the beloved paper would be shutting down.

The Montreal Mirror was a weekly, anglo, alternative newspaper founded in 1985. It focused on Arts & Culture, entertainment listings, and local politics.  It was bought by Quebecor in 1997 and subsequently sold in June 2012 much to the shock and dismay of its employees and numerous readers.
