On Nov. 23, 1983 a 12-page broadsheet newspaper called the Burnaby Now first hit the streets of the city. Started out of the ashes of The Columbian newspaper, which published its final edition Nov. 15, 1983 after 123 years in the business, the paper’s founders believed in a community newspaper which cared about the city, its people and commerce. Three decades later the Burnaby Now has grown to a twice-weekly tabloid paper with a dynamic website. It is delivered to over 49,000 doorsteps on Wednesdays and Fridays and thousands of readers count on the Burnaby Now’s team to deliver breaking news, sports, advertisements, and opinion pieces daily.
The Burnaby Now depends upon its community connections and readers for information, comments and critiques. We welcome your input.
