Sidney Review is not dead

Editor of the formerly named Sidney Review says his newspaper is far from dead as pronounced by another letter writer last week

Dear Editor

One of your recent letter writers (“Sad to see the Daily close”: Esther Darlington MacDonald, Jan. 16) referred to the closure of the Sidney Review. Just to clarify, the paper was David Black’s first purchase on Vancouver Island and has been publishing for more than 100 years – it has just been renamed a few times, from the Sidney and Islands Review 100 years ago to today’s Peninsula News Review.

A minor point, really, in the wake of unfortunate newspaper closures, but one I felt needed to be made.

Steve Heywood, editor

Peninsula News Review
