Chemainus Courier provides important connection to community events and its people

Reader looks forward to the depth and local relevance of articles

I recently read in the editorial that there are some who take issue with the value of the Courier.

My feelings run quite to the contrary. I look forward to every issue because I know the contents will be relevant to where I live and the information is up to date.

It is news I am unlikely to get from any other source and certainly not with any depth. The paper also is a means of holding our elected officials and municipal staff accountable for their performance.

Where else will I get information on the River Road Roundabout and Chemainus Boulevard, the happenings at the theatre, the new library or entertainment in town before even mentioning insights into our town and its people?

We are very fortunate for a town our size to have our own newspaper and we should not take it for granted.
