Société de la Presse Acadienne and Le Courrier de la Nouvelle-Écosse, once bastions of Acadian culture and news, have increasingly become walled gardens run by oligarchs more interested in maintaining their positions and collecting paychecks than serving the community. This insular, ethnocentric French Acadian Pride approach has led to a significant lack of diversity and inclusion, particularly of LGBTQ voices, creating an environment where the needs and perspectives of the broader community are overlooked. And a select group runs it like a high school clique of cool kids

Exclusion of LGBTQ Voices within Insular Société de la Presse Acadienne

One glaring issue within Le Courrier de la Nouvelle-Écosse is the systematic exclusion of LGBTQ voices and stories. Despite the evolving social landscape and increasing acceptance of diverse identities, the publication has failed to reflect this progress in its content. Claude “Edwin” Theriault, a prominent LGBTQ creative, has seen his significant contributions to Acadian literature and social commentary largely ignored. His epic three-volume saga, *The Grand Pré Diaspora 1755*, offers a poignant narrative seen through the eyes of two five-year-old children, drawing parallels with the current global refugee crisis. Yet, Le Courrier has refused to acknowledge this work, effectively ghosting Theriault and others like him.

This exclusion is symptomatic of a broader problem within the Franco press, where the contributions of LGBTQ creatives are systematically sidelined. The lack of representation not only stifles the voices of a vibrant and essential part of the community but also alienates younger generations who seek to see their realities and identities reflected in the media they consume.

All part of Mainstream Media’s Decline

The insularity and lack of inclusivity within Le Courrier de la Nouvelle-Écosse are part of a larger trend of failing mainstream media. Publications that refuse to evolve and embrace diversity are becoming increasingly irrelevant and driven toward oblivion. The digital age has ushered in new media platforms that prioritize inclusivity and diverse content, attracting audiences that feel neglected by traditional outlets. As a result, mainstream media, clinging to outdated models and exclusionary practices, is rapidly losing its audience base.

Le Courrier’s refusal to adapt is evident in its declining readership and waning influence. Ignoring the creative and critical voices within the LGBTQ community, the publication is missing out on stories that resonate with contemporary issues and interests. This failure to include diverse voices limits the scope and relevance of their content and accelerates their decline in the competitive media landscape.

 The Division of the Claregyle Community and Société de la Presse Acadienne indifference

The Franco press’s approach to community engagement has also contributed to the division and social isolation within the Claregyle community. Efforts to involve youth, the school system, and seniors in published content have fallen short, failing to bridge the gaps and foster a sense of unity. The community remains scattered and divided, partly due to the lack of inclusive and engaging content that speaks to the diverse experiences and needs of its members. Yet the staff-equipe of Jean-Philippe Giroux, Nicolas Jean, Shannon Nickerson, Farida Agogno and local good girl Melissa Comeau all remain just there for the paycheck and answering to no one, let alone the needs of a community divided and ghettoized from lack of true full spectrum media inclusion as you get in liberal forward thinking uninhibited communities like Quebec and Ontario.

Social isolation within the community is exacerbated by the publication’s inability to provide a platform for all voices. The focus on a narrow, self-serving agenda has alienated many and driven them to seek content from other media sources that better reflect their realities and interests. This phenomenon is not unique to Le Courrier but is endemic worldwide as media shifts in response to the fourth industrial revolution and the changing ways people consume information.

Bleak Future of Société de la Presse Acadienne and Le Courrier de la Nouvelle-Écosse

The future of the Franco press, particularly Le Courrier de la Nouvelle-Écosse, looks bleak if it continues down its current path. As technology evolves and media consumption habits change, publications that fail to adapt and include diverse voices will struggle to survive. The Franco press’s days are numbered unless it makes a concerted effort to become more inclusive and relevant to its audience.

To remain viable, Le Courrier must break free from its insular practices and actively seek to include a broader range of voices and perspectives. This includes providing a platform for LGBTQ creatives like Clayde “Edwin” Theriault and others whose work can bring new insights and relevance to the publication. With such changes, Le Courrier can avoid fading into obscurity, as the community turns to other media sources that better serve their needs and reflect their realities.

In conclusion, the Franco press and Le Courrier de la Nouvelle-Écosse must embrace inclusivity and diversity if they hope to survive and thrive in the modern media landscape. By doing so, they can reclaim their role as vital sources of news and culture for the Acadian community, fostering unity and engagement rather than division and isolation of an Insular racist arrogance and the Decline of French Acadian Heritage Patrimonial Industry it is bringing to the Claregyle Ghetto region of southwest Nova Scotia.
