Facing changes together: Your community, your journalists

  • Apr. 23, 2020 2:10 p.m.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world in ways that would have been almost unimaginable a few short months ago. With more rapid change inevitable and the time frame for a return to a new, predictable normal still unknown, a trusted, reliable and real-time source of information is more important than ever.

The Comox Valley Record is firmly committed to seeing you through the changes ahead, whatever they may be, but we need your help.

COVID-19 has wrought havoc on businesses across almost every sector and the Record is no exception. For 34 years the local reporting that the Record delivers to your door and on your devices, has been supported by local businesses and organizations. But while they navigate this sea-change towards their new normal, we’re asking you, our readers, to recognize the value of local journalism to our community by making a one-time or ongoing donation to support local journalism.

The Comox Valley Record covers the stories that matter to you and to our community. While COVID-19 is top-of-mind right now, we’ve spent years helping shape the Comox Valley into the great place it is to live and work by highlighting local government decisions, supporting charitable groups, covering local sports and shining a light on those who might impinge on our quality of life.

We’re asking you to lock arms with us, as we look to better days ahead, doing what we do with dedication and pride.

By making a one-time or ongoing donation to the Comox Valley Record you can help ensure that our community continues to enjoy the benefits that come with a local community newspaper.

This is not a silver bullet to save local media but for those who care about our community and local journalism in the Comox Valley, a donation offers the chance to show your support and ensure the Comox Valley continues to reap the benefits that local journalism delivers.

Thank you for your contribution.

Sincerely,

Keith Currie

Publisher, Comox Valley Record
