The Times Colonist will be printed at the Black Press commercial printing plant in Ladysmith starting Oct. 1.

The announcement was made Tuesday by publisher Dave Obee and Randy Blair, the chief operating officer of Black Press.

Black Press, the largest privately held printer in Western Canada, is consolidating all of its Island press operations in Ladysmith. The Ladysmith plant will print all of Black’s Island papers, some other weekly newspapers and commercial jobs as well as the Times Colonist.
