THR NEW PARLIAMENT STREET NEWS. PSN

coverIn January, I got a call from Michael Hepburn of Hepburn Landscaping. He was calling to get my address. We chatted and told him (during a pandemic) that the PSN’s future was not clear.

A few days later I received a letter, (with is a self-addressed and stamped envelope so I could send an invoice when the time was right). In the letter, Michael stated how much he loved the paper. He mentioned that Hepburn Landscaping gets several calls a year from his ad and to “not to underestimate the importance of local stuff like this…and to keep going.” Well, I gotta say I was flattered. In the following days of January, I decided to take the plunge..and in doing so, decided to change the format, use Canada Post for delivery and solicit more opinionated articles.

Thanks to all of the advertisers and contributors. Everybody is allowed to contribute. If you have an opinion, we want to hear it, and so does the community. Don’t forget to follow, share and reach out via your social media of choice and remember to read the paper. The advertisers count on it, and so do we.
