Over 200 people gathered at the Santa Maria Goretti Centre on March 9 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Boyle McCauley News. Attendees included the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi (Minister of Natural Resources), the Honourable Brian Mason, Minister of Transportation (retired), Mayor Don Iveson, representatives from numerous community businesses and organizations, and over 60 of the paper’s past and present volunteers.

New EPS Chief Dale McPhee and his wife Leanne were welcomed in a traditional Indigenous ceremony by Dr. Maggie Hodgson and Carola Cunningham, CEO of Ambrose Place. Three long-time volunteers were presented with the Garry Spotowski Volunteer Award: Larry Brockman, John Kolkman, and Phil O’Hara. In addition, three businesses were recognized for advertising with the paper for its full 40 years: the Italian Centre Shop, Market Drugs, and the Italian Bakery.

The evening also saw the premiere of a short documentary about the paper’s history. Guest speaker Marty Chan had the audience riveted with his talk about media, interwoven with his own personal story.
