Free Weeklies

The last of Vancouver's free weeklies: the Georgia Straight and the Westender.

It was Amy who noticed that both publications have the Jazz Festival on their covers, and that in both instances the Festival is represented by white men.

Something else worth noting: the absence of ads by developers and real estate marketers in the Georgia Straight. Is this an editorial policy or a response by the development community?

Below is the back page of the Straight's May 5th, 2017 50th anniversary issue. Westbank's towers brought together -- for a bow.
