BuzzFeed closing Ottawa bureau, shifting Canada editorial focus

Online media outlet BuzzFeed said on Tuesday that it is closing its Ottawa bureau as it moves away from covering Canadian political news, in a broader editorial revamp that will also see its Toronto team work more closely with editors in New York. "With the 2015 Canadian federal election behind us, we are wrapping up our Canadian political coverage," Scott Lamb, vice president of international editorial, said in a memo to staff that was provided to Reuters by BuzzFeed. The editorial shift comes as the traditional media outlets in Canada are struggling to remain profitable amid declining advertising revenues and competition from online upstarts like BuzzFeed and Mashable.
