PNR’s photo spread earns praise

A Day in the Life delighted Peninsula News Review readers

Congratulations to the Peninsula News Review for the wonderful A Day in the Life section published July 25.

Although I realize the importance of reporting on the increasingly acrimonious events at North Saanich council (they are hiring a marriage counsellor, right?), the Sidney Business Association versus Sidney, Sidney versus residents over rezoning, not to mention the many the acid-tongued letters to the editor, it’s nice to have that ray of sunshine once in a while.

Thanks for the wonderful photo supplement on A Day in the Life of the Peninsula.

A typical day on the Peninsula is well-illustrated, reminding us all of why we have chosen to live here.

The people, the businesses, service providers, farms, the old cars, young athletes — the atmosphere, attitudes, friendliness and the reality of life on the Peninsula. So well done. Thanks to the photographers Barry Hinderks, Devon MacKenzie, and the gifted multi-tasker, Erin Cardone.
