Georgia Straight

Georgia Straight | Media | A free local weekly paper that began as an unflinching, truly alternative newspaper in 1967 but has now largely devolved into a shadow of its former self, dominated by lifestyle fluff, condo advertisements, and page after page dedicated to “adult services“. Next to the Vancouver Sun and The Province, however, it’s pure brilliance, cover to cover.
