Another year goes by

Our View

Well New Year’s Eve is just about upon us and it is time for the ritual – and literal – turning of the calendar.

As with every year, 2015 saw its share of good times and bad times. Guess what? You can expect the same in 2016. It would be nice to say that it’s all going to be wine and roses in 2016 but we all know that’s not going to be the case. Tragedy will strike again but so will triumph. We can feel comforted knowing that many good things will happen to good people in the coming year. They won’t always make the news pages or get circulated like wildfire on social media, but they’ll happen and some of them will make the news agenda.

Our economy will go through it’s usual machinations – ups and downs, expansions and contractions. In the end, we just hope that we will be better off at the end of they year than when we started.

Changes will happen but one thing that you can depend on: you will continue to read about most of these things in the pages of your local newspaper – the Campbell River Mirror.

It was a year of big change for us as well and we tried our best to adapt to it. We hope to roll into the coming year with the support of our readers and advertisers. Together we’ll make the news and watch it unfurl.

Meanwhile, allow us to thank you, dear readers and advertisers, for your ongoing support.
