Every week our friends at The Georgia Straight provide us with a preview of what you’ll see on – and in – their paper that week. They are THE source for lifestyle and entertainment in our city and along with their robust online presence they’ve always released a print edition, distributed everywhere each Thursday.
The cover this week is the Tragically Hip. As the Canadian icons hit Vancouver on their farewell tour, we’re reminded how they taught a nation there was no need for outside validation. Read the cover story, The Tragically Hip’s most fabled failure made it Canada’s greatest-ever band, HERE.
They also have a guide to summer farmers markets, HERE.
Here are some links to stories highlighted on the cover:
– Green Living: 3 out-of-the-box places to source produce for home canning by Lucy Lau.
– Star Trek’s Simon Pegg goes beyond space and Time by Nathan Caddell.
