The newspaper was founded in 1926 through the merger of the Kingston Daily Standard and the British Whig. The word "Kingston" was dropped from the name in 1973, but was reinstated in the early 1990s. The newspaper can trace its roots back to the pre-merger days as far as 1834 when Edward John Barker founded the British Whig. The present publication is Canada's oldest continuously published daily newspaper. Published daily, except on Sunday.

A photograph that depicts your presence at the building is necessary. This can be a picture of your GPSr in the foreground in only one of your many pictures, or if you're not too camera shy, put you or a team member in the picture. Maybe even buy a newspaper while they're still in business. They need all the help they can get. No picture, no new log. And no icon.
