History of the Ottawa Citizen Newspaper
The history of the Ottawa Citizen newspaper begins in 1845, which began with the name The Bytown Packet. By 1851, it changed its name to Citizen, which as time went by changed to the name it has today.
This newspaper has gone through many owners, starting with William Harris in the year of its foundation, going through the Southam family in 1879, after several owners. After the latter, it passed into the hands of Conrad Black´s Hollinger Inc. who sold them in the year 2000 to form its current owner Red Postmedia.
Because of all these changes in ownership, the Ottawa Citizen newspaper has taken different ideological positions ranging from the conservative to the liberal. He even spent part of his time on the right, in which he participated in the 2006 elections on behalf of the Conservative Party of Canada.
This newspaper was involved in a scandal in 2002, due to an article that criticized harshly and called for the resignation of Prime Minister Jean Chrétien. This resulted in severe sanctions, including the dismissal of publisher Rusell Mills.
Both its motto and logo have undergone changes over the years, its original motto was Fair play by Daylight. As for its logo, it used to be the top of the Peace Tower of the Ottawa Parliament, but this changed to 2014, where the name of Ottawa Citizen is shown surrounded by the contour of the Peace Tower on a green background.
