What People Are Saying

“The Lookout is the best thing to happen to Ottawa news in a very long time. Independent and people-focused, I rely on it to make sense of this town.”


“As a fairly new Ottawan, this newsletter helps the city feel more and more like my home. It's rare these days to have news that I trust and is directly applicable to my life. I like to think that I will use the city council insights to inform my decisions in future municipal elections.”


“I actually look forward to reading the Lookout. I didn't at the beginning (didn't know what I was missing!) but now, I pour m'self a coffee and make time to pore over the news. Thanks for the roundup-style of news, the lighthearted glimpses into who you are, and the easy-to-read layout and tone.”


“In the short time I’ve been a subscriber, I’ve come to rely on the Lookout for local Ottawa news. It’s a hidden gem!”


“Finally, a publication that keeps me in touch with my local news and helps me be a member of the community. Kudos!”


“In a time where we don't find the news, but the news finds us, I've grown to hate it. There's too much, all the time. The Lookout is that breath of fresh air. The news is local and relevant. I don't need to know every single thing that's happening in the world or the country, and The Lookout cuts through that clutter.”
