The 1019 Report is a new breed of community newspaper – with an emphasis on both news and paper. As the tagline on our nameplate explains, we will be focused on covering the news that residents who live within the 1,019 square kilometres of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region need to know. That means keeping you up to date on what is happening with your municipal and regional governments, providing fact-filled reports on issues of interest and concern, and offering thoughtful and reasoned debate and commentary. But that is not all. This newspaper will work hard to also reflect the community it serves. This is an essential quality that some media has quietly, and quite ironically, lost during the last few years in a rush to throw everything online and hope that you find it on Facebook in drips and drabs. It will also look to support and partner with local businesses and help community groups get their messages out. These stakeholders are a big part of our community.
The Vaudreuil-Soulanges area is fortunate. It is distinctive from other areas of the province. Unlike typical small towns, where people grow up and often move away from, the municipalities here are the small towns where many of us have chosen to move to. It is a choice that, when we look back, reassures us. We want this – this distinctive quality of community, an often difficult-to-measure, but nonetheless real spirit that lets us all feel like we are part of something. We have a stake in it. We chose it. And we are asking you to make another conscious choice. Pick up The 1019 Report. Make it your meeting place to reflect on the consciousness of this community. Help us be the window through which the rest of the world sees this community. We can be the example that inspires others.
The 1019 Report covers the news within the 1,019 square kilometres of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region, telling the stories that are worth your time.
