Oooh Ooooh, we got ourselves an old fashioned paper war!
The Daily News will have some competition on the news stands come June 5th as something called the “Northern Daily” makes its appearance around the Northwest.
From the Look Inside of May 31 (delivered a day earlier in finer neighbourhoodsÂ ) comes this little pr blurb from page 14 about the emerging new publication. There is also aÂ full page ad for the latest attempt to topple the Daily, you can view the new dawn coming on page 10.
NORTHERN DAILY A NEW WAY TO GET YOUR NEWS
By Shaun Thomas
NORTHWEST- Beginning June 5, residents of the Northwest will have another way of getting the news of the day with the arrival of The Northern Daily.
This new newspaper, which is being done in partnership with Look Inside, the Northern Sentinel, the Terrace Standard and other northern members of the B. C. Newspaper Group, will be distributed free through street boxes and at a number of local businesses from Monday to Friday. The Northern Daily will have the latest in international, national and provincial news from the internationally acclaimed Reuters news service.Â In addition, it will offer coverage of professional sports, entertainment and business news from around the world.
In addition to the national and international coverage offered by The Northern Daily, we are comitted to ensuring that residents of the Northwest continue to see all of the latest local news from communities throughout the region delivered to their doorstep week in and week out with the continuation of our free regional newspaper.
Look for the Northern Daily at businesses and locations throughout the region June 5, and look for the latestÂ issue of Look Inside Publications in your mailbox next week. Together, we can offer the best coverage of the news that affects the region… free of charge.
**in fairness to the new paper, the original spelling errors that I had transcribed from their Presser were mine, done in transcription, I corrected them at 6:31 pm, we’ll cut them some slack until they disappoint us themselves…
Those of a historical bent will know that June 5th is the day before D-Day, June 6th 1944Â britannica.com/ddayÂ and the invasion of Europe. Purely coincidental we’re sure, but makes for interesting timing for the invasion of turf that has been under Snooze control for decades…Â Â Â
