We hope this finds you well during these unprecedented times as we deal with COVID-19 and the impacts it is having on the world.
It has come to our attention that the Rocky View Weekly newspaper has run into some financial headwinds and will no longer be printing newspapers for delivery. We recognize that providing news and information to residents is important, particularly during these times, and that’s why Rocky View 2020 has decided to help by picking up some of the slack.
Our Executive Director Bruce McAllister has more than 20 years of experience working in some of the largest newsrooms in the country and so, he and our experienced team will endeavor to send you information updates on what’s happening in Rocky View and the region. With proven journalistic skills and integrity, we will be able to provide the facts, without the misinformation and hyperbole so often sensationalized by the eco-terrorists and anti-everything’s of the region.
Should you wish to receive our updates, just hit reply and let us know. And if you’d like to make a donation to our work as we continue to bring the important issues for landowners and all Rocky View residents to the forefront, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a pledge form.
