Description

As a city of 2 million, Vancouver is not unusual in having two daily newspapers. What makes it an anomaly among North American cities is that the Vancouver Sun and The Province share an owner, the former Pacific Press. In this in-depth account, researcher Marc Edge traces the history of Pacific Press from its inception in 1957 to the Sun's shift to morning publications in 1991. Pacific Press analyzes the market, business, and labour forces that gave rise to and shaped Pacific Press. We also get intimate glimpses of the early Vancouver newspaper world, including insight into Robert Cromie, publisher of the Sun, and heirs Don, Bob, and Sam. Tales of venerable editorialist Bruce Hutchison, red-baiting Province columnist Ormond Turner, warring Sun writers Allan Fotheringham and Doug Collins, and many others enliven the narrative. Pacific Press furnishes an invaluable history of newspapering in Vancouver that is also a gripping business saga.
