Happy 99th Birthday – and many more - the the Flamborough Review

Opinion May 18, 2017 Flamborough Review

In this year of commemorations, there is much to reflect on. The story of Canada is found in its communities, and at their hearts are some of the most important institutions binding them together: local newspapers.

Ninety-nine years ago this week the Waterdown Review (renamed the Flamborough Review in 1974 to reflect the implementation of regional government) was begun with the following announcement:

We have no apologies to make, no excuses to offer and no flowery introduction. We are here and intend to make this paper a benefit and credit to the town and vicinity.

While national newspapers falter in the age of the Internet, local newspapers like the Review remain fixed at the heart of their communities.

The Flamborough Review continues to be our eyes and ears, and a benefit and credit to our community. In a world that is becoming increasingly tangible and remote, they are physically still here, literally on Main Street, recording the stories that make this place home.

Happy Birthday Review!

Nathan Tidridge, Past President, Waterdown-East Flamborough Heritage Society
