Support Fact-Based, Local Journalism in the Tri-Cities

Local journalism is at risk across B.C. As more outlets bring in paywalls, access to high-quality news may be determined by wealth.

Our team at the Dispatch is committed to producing high-quality, accessible journalism without paywalls. But to do that, we need readers like you to contribute. Join us today by becoming a member and support local journalism.

"Too often local journalism focuses on short-term stories without looking at the long-term issues. 

Our journalism goes deeper, telling stories you won't otherwise hear from people not normally given a voice. Please consider supporting our nonprofit community journalism today."
