Grass-Roots Communities Collide – Celiacs and Sookians Unite!
Sooke, British Columbia is Vancouver Island’s favorite not-so-secret getaway, offering stunning seas and skies, storm watching and killer whales. Sooke is gaining fame thanks to the efforts of Britt Santowski, publisher of Sooke.PocketNews.ca!
Britt lives, works and plays in Sooke and is to the local community what The Celiac Scene is to the gluten-free. Author of ‘The Unstoppable Woman,‘ a celebrated news reporter and union activist, Britt is dedicated to empowering her community with the information they want, need – and deserve!
In an era when print-based newspapers are falling like the timber they are printed on (see Nanaimo News), Britt’s Sooke PocketNews is a hyper-local online newspaper that covers all things Sooke, all the time – as it happens. It is everything that one expects of a newspaper – arts & entertainment to wildlife alerts, pre-school story times to job listings – and that most topical – traffic on the Malahat. Sooke PocketNews delivers, ‘Your Town. Your News. Online. Now!’ One more – Free!Arts and Entertainment
