REMINDER: PQB News temporarily moves to one print issue per week, on Wednesdays

Publisher announces decision due to concerns surrounding COVID-19

A message from the publisher of the PQB News:

We are living in unprecedented times brought about by the implications of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Orders from various levels of government have greatly affected our daily lives and that is certainly true here in Parksville Qualicum Beach.

While the need for accurate and timely news has never been greater, we are taking the step of combining our Tuesday and Thursday print editions into a single edition, published on Wednesday. This will allow our editorial team to focus more on breaking news on our website and to be able to bring you news as it happens in Parksville Qualicum Beach, B.C., Canada and the world.

We view this move as a temporary measure, brought about by the implications of the extraordinary times we are currently living in.

We want our readers to be safe and healthy and also well-informed, with up-to-the-minute local and provincial news.

Visit www.pqbnews.com and sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter, and continue to follow what’s happening on the local scene with your copy of the PQB News.
