Due to the “growing popularity of digital media and communications,” Sun Media Corporation has decided to end printing of its free weekly newspaper, the Montreal Mirror, according to a  release on Friday.

The closure will see seven employees lose their jobs and two more transferred to other parts of the company as a result.

In the statement, Sun Media, a subsidiary of Quebecor Media, pointed to the rise of “economic challenges which have unfortunately compromised The Mirror‘s viability.”

Sun Media has 36 paid-circulation daily newspapers and six free dailies in nine urban markets in Canada.
