Readers have asked where an article they saw in the News Between the Bridges newsletter can be found later on the Old Ottawa South website. Here's a brief description of how the newsletter relates to the website, which can help you find articles later.
The newsletter is essentially a "snapshot" of recent articles from the website at the time the newsletter is created, excluding older items and events that have already occurred. It is simply organized and presented in a different way, and doesn't always include the whole content of an article but rather a link to the full text of the article. Plus a list of upcoming events in the next two weeks.
