Northern Capital News is a daily newsletter focused on Prince George, B.C., Canada and community conversations about it.
If you sign up, every weekday morning I will send you a curated newsletter about life in Prince George.
At a minimum, this will include links to interesting reporting from other publications.
Usually, it will include some commentary from me.
And sometimes it will include longer form writing or reporting, if I have something to say.
I will also include funny Tweets, Instagrams TikToks or Reddit threads about or relevant to the city when I find them.
"For someone who really doesn't like reading the news, this newsletter is my favorite thing to read everyday and it helps me keep up to date in what's going on in this crazy city."
“All the things I want to know and bits and bobs I didn't know I wanted.”
Northern Capital News was started in October 2022 as an outlet for me to share stories of the city I call home in one place, without simply posting into the void of social media platforms. It’s slowly been finding an audience of people who are passionate about the community and value having a one-stop shop to catch up on the news of the city in a daily package, as evidenced by the testimonials on this page.
Support and feedback
Northern Capital News is free, and I intend to keep it that way. It’s not a job, it’s a hobby and it’s done in my free time. It also relies heavily on the reporting of local media so if you value what you read here, I highly recommend buying a subscription or giving your financial support to one of those outlets in order to help keep reporters in this city working.
You can share tips and feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or hitting reply.
If you like what you read, please share it with other people who might like it, too.
