Because of Canada Post's threatened lockout of its workers, the Western Catholic Reporter did not provide a print edition of its scheduled July 11 issue.

However, we did make the e-edition of that issue available free of charge via the newspaper's website, wcr.ab.ca.

We also sent an email to all print subscribers for whom we have email addresses on file and asked parishes in the Edmonton Archdiocese to notify their parishioners of the disruption in service.

Although the threatened work stoppage did not occur, the WCR will extend the subscriptions of paid subscribers by one issue.

As well, the current print issue includes all of the local stories and columns that were to be a part of the July 11 issue.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.


The next issue of the Western Catholic Reporter will be dated August 15, three weeks following this one.

The WCR publishes 25 issues a year, normally in a two-week publishing cycle.

In the summer, we publish one less issue so that we spread our 25 issues over 52 weeks.
