A Message to Spectator Supporters



Dear Readers,

It is with immeasurable sadness that we share the news that Mary passed away suddenly in the early hours of Wednesday, April 24th, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, seven months after being diagnosed with encephalitis. In the coming days we’ll be grappling with the question of how to pay tribute to this extraordinary person you all got to know through her journalism here at the Cape Breton Spectator.  We’ll let you know when that takes shape.

In the meantime, thank you all for your fervent support of this paper.  The path of Mary’s life led her back to Cape Breton and the work she knew needed to be done here – work she always knew she was destined for. You all made that possible.

Dolores, Susan, Archie and Flora Campbell
