Hard News

The Sunday edition of The Vancouver Courier, the cover story is on challenges faced by The Street - "a bi-weekly dedicated to giving a voice and an opportunity to the homeless".

From the article:
Right now the paper breaks even. Written and edited by volunteers, its published at Horizon Printers at a discount rate. Vendors buy each paper for 30 cents, which covers the printing costs, and sell it on the street for donations. Whatever [the vendor] pockets is theirs to keep, with some of it going to buy copies of the next issue.

The Street was once Spare Change.

This link will take you to the story in the February 13th edition.
