A new voice in the Village

Hot on the heels of The Villager newspaper closing its office in Bloor West Village, comes a new local news voice. The Bloor West Village Journal launched its innaugural issue in early June, headed by George Longo. Longo is the former publisher of The Villager, which the Torstar company bought six years ago.

Longo says he is determined that The Journal will seize the initiative in local news coverage saying, “We want to become the primary source of community information and take a leading role in developing this community.”

The new paper will go head to head with The Village Gleaner, which also publishes monthly, and The Villager.

The Journal‘s first edition featured articles on Council’s approval of the Humber Odeon condo, the reconfiguration of the South Kingsway/Queensway/Gardiner ramps, and a number of local sports events.

The BWVRA wishes much success to The Bloor West Journal and urges you to support it and its sponsors. Click here to contact the paper to find out more (PDF, 687kb).
