B.C. communities care.

So do the Black Press newspapers that directly serve those communities. Reflecting and raising awareness of that caring spirit is part of the core mandate of every Black Press community newspaper.

This publication is now part of an exciting new initiative undertaken by Black Press in British Columbia that works to further communicate the good work being done in communities, and provide a new opportunity for organizations and individuals to tap into that fountain of caring.

It should be noted that Jonathan Heerema may have left Adreneline but is still heading up the Sooke Regional Tourism Association. The information we received was incorrect and we apologize for any inconvenience or misunderstanding this may have caused.
