Metroland puts three more titles on hold
Metroland Media Group Ltd. recently suspended publication for three of its magazines: Guelph Life, Rex Magazine and Live It!. All three magazines were launched in 2006, run by multi-tasking staff from the corporation's newspapers and distributed in part to readers of those newspapers.

Metroland says it plans to re-launch all three magazines in the future. Live It! is being "re-tooled," while Guelph Life and Rex will "maintain online presences."

Last week, Metroland announced the elimination of 64 full-time newspaper jobs, including 30 at the Hamilton Spectator, 21 at the Waterloo Region Record and 13 at the Guelph Mercury, according to the Canadian Press.
