Looks like change

Don’t adjust your vision, this is still the Monday Magazine you know and love. We’ve just moved the furniture around a little and dabbed on a fresh coat of paint.

Don’t adjust your vision, this is still the Monday Magazine you know and love. We’ve just moved the furniture around a little and dabbed on a fresh coat of paint.

While we were at it, we also made a few adjustments to make Monday even more local, interesting and unique.

As Victoria’s alternative voice, we want to reflect the evolving taste, excitement, enthusiasm and inspiration of our readers.

Nestled inside a fresh and clean new look, our writers will continue to dissect and cover a wide range of topics with stories that spark discussion and deliver entertaining insights. With an emphasis on the personalities that make our city unique, we strive to embody innovative thinking with smart presentation of diverse topics anchored on three major areas: news, entertainment and lifestyle.

With a storyteller’s heart and an independent outlook, Monday aims to inspire and enlighten with a hearty dose of reading enjoyment.

Our new Opinion page introduces two new faces: the veteran Brian Kieran and our youthful watchdog Simon Nattrass.

Former Premier Mike Harcourt nicknamed Brian “Fang” for a reason. His take-no-prisoners brand of political journalism began in the 1980s with the Vancouver Sun, flourished in his Reliable Sources column in The Province and resumes here at Monday. With a thirst for federal and provincial politics, Brian will deliver commentary that is sure to get everyone talking.

But don’t think our local politicians can breathe any easier. Bringing youthful energy and dogged passion to municipal politics, Simon is a political  junkie who attends Council meetings for fun and has been heavily involved in local youth and political advocacy. He offers a fresh voice and keen eye for a new time.

And for all our puzzle fans, we have a terrific new treat. As seen on Dragons Den, Victoria-based Syndicated Puzzles is providing us with two of their most popular and challenging games: Sudoku and Str8ts. You’ll find both puzzles in our Classifieds section and we’re excited to hear what you think of them.

And that’s just the beginning. In coming weeks, you’ll find expanded coverage of books, tech, fashion and more.

Stay tuned. M
