The Wallaceburg Courier Press has been a feisty weekly tabloid since its launch in August 1972 by legendary resident and newspaperman Gary O’Flynn. A reporter for the Windsor Star’s Wallaceburg bureau, O’Flynn was asked to relocate to the Star’s Windsor newsroom, but instead quit and started his own paper. Under his stewardship, the Courier Press became an opinionated, spunky and often controversial newspaper that entertained as much as it informed. O’Flynn sold the Courier Press in 1989, but those who took control of the newspaper strove to maintain its reputation, one that is upheld today through weekly opinion columnists and an unusual Page 3 feature that O’Flynn inaugurated over 40 years ago, called What We Hear, See and Think. The Courier Press has become Wallaceburg’s newspaper of record and reflects the community’s working class roots and its independent spirit. The newspaper serves a community that at one time enjoyed an enormous industrial base and employed tens of thousands of people, many of whom came to work from surrounding towns and villages. Since the 1990s Wallaceburg’s industrial base has been substantially reduced because of competition from Mexico and Asia, yet within the past several years there has been a rebirth of sorts, with smaller-scale shops being established. Wallaceburg is also surrounded by some of the best farmland in Canada, its farmers growing everything from sweet corn and tomatoes to vegetable crops and sugar beets. Nearby is the First Nations community of Walpole Island, spread over several islands at Lake St. Clair and taking in some of the most diversified and unique landscape in the region. Walpole Island is renowned for its hunting industry, and this commerce has had an impact in Wallaceburg.
