– A blog for Esquimalt’s news and issues.
Every community needs its own newspaper. It is an important part of community identity. It documents the unique nature of the community, telling the community’s story as it grows. In the past, our community has had various incarnations of newspapers exclusively serving Esquimalt. Unfortunately, Esquimalt ceased having its own print-version newspaper in 2007. That, however, changed with the creation of Esquimalt’s first online news source, the Esquimalt Review.
Founded in 2009 by Esquimalt resident Tim Morrison, Esquimalt Review served for two years as a free online community newspaper until late-2011 when Morrison ceased publication upon being elected an Esquimalt Councillor. An archive of Morrison’s Esquimalt Review blog posts from 2009 to 2011 are available at this link.
