LETTERS: Editor’s departure met with sadness


It was a shock to read that editor Lance Peverley was no longer with you. Although my only interaction with Lance was an occasional phone conversation over the years, I always felt he was the main contact with our community.

I always enjoyed his editorials, which I found well-written and pertinent, whether he wrote of global concerns or parochial ones.

At one time, I was an avid reader of the print press, but regrettably the quality of print journalism has fallen so low that I no longer bother. We subscribe to a National (Toronto) newspaper, which I do not read.

Even the great international papers such as the New York Times fail to provide the quality and level of interest that they had 20 or 30 years ago.

All this adds to my sadness in no longer having Lance Peverley’s thoughts and writing to look forward to. I wish him success in his new ventures and hope that I can continue to enjoy the Peace Arch News just as much under its new management team as in the past decades.
