The Cord Community paper forced to fundraise
The Cord Community Edition, a community version of Wilfrid Laurier's student newspaper, has launched a fundraising campaign because the WLU Student Publications board pulled funding sooner than expected.
"The board has initially given us a certain time frame they would support it for. But due to some budgetary constraints, the organization as a whole couldn't afford to fund the rest of the year," said Bryn Ossington, the executive director of Wilfrid Laurier University Student Publications and the publisher of the CCE.
The CCE will need $12,000 to ensure viability and is looking to the community for support.
"We've got a month to left to the campaign so we're hopeful we'll see, we'll hit our targets," said Ossington.
