  1. 1) I do not see a dollar figure anywhere on what it costs to advertise. You say above “”How to Submit a Classified Ad:

    But you don’t say what the amount is to pay???

    2) Just wondering why you don’t have an opt in subscription to have the paper emailed out to those who want it.. similar to the Coast Reporter…

    Thanks so much.

    • We will collecting names for those who prefer to get the newspaper emailed out in the near future. I also believe that the rates will all be posted online. Stay tuned.

      Thanks,

  2. Tried to submit an event on your post an event page and, Nothing.
    http://www.thelocalweekly.ca/event/?ptype=post_event

    Filled out everything I could, unable to register or review. Is it because I chose the free package?

  3. Hi there;

    How do I send a press release for an upcoming event? Can it be emailed?

    Thanks.

  4. What are your advertising rates for 1/2 page ads? I don’t see that anywhere.
