Arghhh…so here we are. By-elections, pandemics, lockdowns again. Pot shops, shelters, homelessness, businesses going under, food lines getting worse. There are a lot of people struggling in the neighbourhood in both business and personally.
Despite the frustrations with our various leaders, an unprecedented amount of hope. There seems to be a lot of people, myself included that are really hopeful. You can see it in some of our articles, and you can see it everywhere..despite the despair there is still a sense of hope in everybody we see. Keep on trying to keep on plugging and keep on publishing.
If you want to get involved with the paper and want to write, we can always make space for you. Of course, we love our advertisers and still need your support. If you are reading this, you get the idea. The whole point of the paper is to let people share their stories with everybody else. So let’s keep going.
Ten years ago, The Parliament Street news started as a way to give all the different organizations the ability to explain their acronyms to the community, and sometimes to each other. CCAC, CRA, CPA, HCD, BIA, BNI, YSM, CYC, CHCDC, CSRA, AARG, GDRA, WPRA, SCPS, WPS to name a few. The funny thing is all of these orgs have many of the same issues, and all are welcome to share with each other via the Parliament Street News.
