PUBLISHER HUGH NICHOLSON 
LEAVES NANAIMO DAILY NEWS

It was reported in the Daily that publisher Hugh Nicholson will be leaving the Daily and Nanaimo headed for his 'dream job' in Toronto with NRS Media.

Commenting on Nanaimo Nicholson is quoted as saying: "Nanaimo needs strong leadership and more people willing to get engaged. I don't think that I've ever worked in a place where taxpayers were held in such contempt by senior city staff and most of council. It's been wonderful from a newspaper standpoint: it's the gift that keeps on giving. There is never a dull moment."

We wish Mr. Nicholson all the best in his new position and since he is moving to Toronto from Nanaimo we feel compelled to offer our heartfelt condolences.

  1. Fingers crossed that the new publisher will have the balls to let the paper keep going after city bureaucrats and the majority of council who are running Nanaimo, and taxpayers, into the ground!

    Normally you'd hear a comment like that from someone in the media and think, "yeah... yeah... whatever!" cause it sounds ridiculous. In Nanaimo though I truly do feel our Mayor along with most of the Council does hold us in contempt. Their comments at Council are often snide, deriding, and rude. This is one time that someone in the media has actually said something and there's no hyperbole!

    Just wondering Jim but does our Mayor actually live in Lantzville and not Nanaimo?

    Sincerely,
    Devon Kruggel
