A Prince George, B.C. news stand owner is vowing to keep the printed version of the Globe and Mail in her city.  

"Over the time, we have sort of witnessed many, many newspapers from our newstand disappear," says Darlene Dawydiuk.

She says she won't let it happen:  "National Post was one... and the customers had a public outcry."

"There's a lot of loyal [Globe & Mail] customers that come to our store,"  says Dawydiuk.

Other cities include Prince Rupert, Revelstoke, Whistler, Sun Peaks, and communities in Newfoundland and Labrador.
