Lower Island News (LIN) is a bi-monthly democratic socialist newspaper published in Victoria, BC by the non-profit, Lower Island News Society.

Victoria is British Columbia’s Capital city and is located on Vancouver Island across from the Mainland (Vancouver BC).

Started in 1983 Lower Island News, known as LIN to regular readers, is proud to say it’s now in its 32nd year of print operation and is on going. Moving slowly into the electric news world, LIN developing a web outreach.

Due to requests from our growing readership, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve created an electronic LIN which can found here on this Blog when each edition comes out. e:LIN! is LowerIslandNews.com 

Welcome to the Electronic Version of LIN 

#LOWERISLANDNEWS  @lowerislandnews 

Please take advantage of comment-stream opportunities.  Feel free to just say hello and/or provide a news tip or coverage suggestion in your area at any time.

Please be assured that we will continue to be progressive left-of-centre on the political spectrum in these challenging times and amidst Big-Media-Monopoly all around us. You can count on us to bring to you excellent political and economic analysis of local, provincial, national and international issues affecting our communities and the well-being of others in the world.

Lower Island News believes in the importance of the printed publication.  LIN’s tradition has been the distribution/circulation to the Greater Victoria area, Up Island, and to some areas on the BC mainland (Inquire for details). This will continue.

In addition, to celebrate e-fans, a PDF of the current edition as well as back issues are now also available on this site.

Last but not least we continue to develop relationships with writers from around the world and add outlets to our sister-publication list on LIN back-page that is designed to enhance voices from abroad and promote left-of-centre readership outlets.
