involved with the Lac du Bonnet Leader and the Beausejour Review, we have attempted to make these operations sustainable. Unfortunately, the market has not been able to support continued publication of the newspapers,? said Bilsky. ?This has been a difficult business decision and does not reflect negatively on the great people of this community.? The Lac du Bonnet Leader has served the community for 68 years. The closure of the Leader, along with its sister paper the Beausejour Review, will result in the loss of one part-time and two full-time jobs.
