MyTownCrier.ca: Welcome

1,934

Published on

Welcome to the new online home of Toronto's Town Crier Group of Community Newspapers. The Town Crier has been committed to reflecting Toronto's neighbourhoods for over 30 years. We emphasize the positive-type news stories, features and series that distinguish it from daily newspapers, which have a mandate to cover the hard news items – the accidents, the crime, the politics. We cover the kinds of stories the daily newspapers often ignore.
