Western Standard news

Those of us with subscriptions (or at least email subscriptions) to Western Stanard today received the following information from Ezra:

Dear friends,

As you know, the Western Standard stopped publishing our print edition last month.

But I'm happy to announce that one of the Western Standard's founders, Matthew Johnston, has assembled a small team of our former staff, and they're going to revive our magazine's websites.

Working with other long-time Western Standard staff like writer Kevin Steel and sales manager Josh Frederick, they're going to try to make a go of it online — and I wish them good luck. They loved the magazine and I'm sure they'll do a great job of the new venture.

I'm moving on to other projects, but Matthew and his team have invited me to continue to blog from time to time on the site, and I'm sure I will.

So make sure to visit www.westernstandard.ca to see what the new team is up to — and keep an eye peeled for their e-mail updates.

Join with me in wishing them good luck!

Yours truly,
Ezra Levant

P.S. For those of you who had a print subscription to the magazine, I'm pleased to announce that we're finalizing an agreement with another Canadian magazine to partially fulfill your print subscription, at no cost to you.
Stay tuned for more news on that.

P.P.S. Once again, please accept my thanks to you for your support these past years — and please support Matthew's new and improved Western Standard website.

Any guesses as to what this other national magazine would be? Surely not Macleans, who the last thing they need right now is for the Canadian Islamic Congress to link them to Ezra "dirty publishing Jew" Levant.
