Briarpatch was trying to get information from the Village of Pinehouse about a controversial agreement between the village and two uranium mining companies, Cameco and Areva, in relation to approximately $200 million in mining contracts.
After pressing two freedom of information requests for the better part of year and despite support from the Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner, who recommended the province consider prosecution, it was decided to file a statement of claim as individual citizens demanding that Mayor Mike Natomagan and the village comply with the act.
“Mayor Natomagan has had ample opportunity to comply with a straightforward request for documents pertaining to monies paid by Cameco and Areva,” says D’Arcy Hande.
“We know that Cameco and Areva have paid large amounts of money to the Village council and its subsidiary corporation, Pinehouse Business North,” says Valerie Zink. “Pinehouse residents deserve to know where these infusions of cash are going, and what strings are attached.”
The journal springs out of a publishing enterprise called Stained Pages Press, which consisted of a 'zine started in 1994 by Greg Clow and Sheryl Kirby. It was distinguished by the fact that its pages were randomly marked by food stains (e.g. wine or coffee rings) so each issue was one of a kind. The other publication of SPP is Kitchen Party, a collection of food stories by Kirby. In addition to publishing, Clow and Kirby present the Toronto Indie Arts Market Small Press and Literary Festival.

Scott Havens of The Atlantic to be MagNet conference kickoff speaker
|M. Scott Havens|
Come hear his story of how an internationally respected multi-platform media company bucked the downward trend to succeed in an increasingly fractured and competitive landscape. What's working and what's not? Where does the brand go next? Havens will answer these questions and more while he explores how the magazine industry can build sustainable businesses that will ensure great journalism not just survives, but thrives. Presented on June 3, 2014 by the Reader's Digest Foundation.This year, following the Marquee, there will be a cocktail reception with a particular focus on celebrating the Quebec magazine industry, with appropriate food, wine and entertainment.
"Bigger pictures -- less pictures, longer reads -- less bits."*Art director Matt Curtis, describing the complete redesign of The Sunday Times Magazine, the supplement to Britain's Sunday Times. The entire newspaper also received a makeover.
According to a post on Magculture.com, the wholly new look includes the new logo treatment in Tiempos (based on the classic Times New Roman by Stanley Morison) and Calibre, a new sans serif face created by Kris Sowersby. The Sunday Times magazine editor is Sarah Baxter and Jon Jones is director of photography.
Interesting to note that one of the three designers on the redesign team is Jessica Rose, the former art director of Toronto Life.
*Minor quibble: Might this have been, correctly, fewer pictures and fewer bits?

"To quote our tech columnist Robert Lewis,[said Tom Gierasimczuk as editor -- before it was announced that Matt O'Grady was coming back] 'TED isn’t going to compare to, say, the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. But it also won’t saddle the city with debt, inflate real estate prices and annoy businesses whose storefronts become inaccessible during, either. Without causing a ruckus, TED will help solidify Vancouver’s newly forming reputation as a real, hard-working city capable of punching above its weight.' ”

[Update: York University says now that it settled with Toronto Life in December. Here is the paragraph that Joanne Rider, York's, chief spokesperson and director of media relations sent in response to seeing this post:
CORRECTIONThe February issue of Toronto Life magazine on newsstands now contains a one-paragraph "clarification" about its October article "Fortress York". The article, by freelance writer Katherine Laidlaw, suggested that young women students on the York University campus lived in fear of sexual assault; a secondary cover line on the issue asked "Why are there so many rapes at York U?"
York University confirms that it has agreed to the dismissal of its action against Toronto Life in a settlement achieved in December 2013. A statement made to Excalibur newspaper by the University this week erred in omitting this information. The parties have now complied with their obligations under the settlement.]
York last September said that it intended to pursue the magazine for defamation.
“There is no change in the status of the university’s legal action at the present time.”

"As the sports and publishing industries continue to evolve, having someone with John's knowledge and passion at the helm is crucial in helping the brand thrive," said Maich [in a release]. "John has been a key contributor to Sportsnet's growth since day one, and I'm confident that under his leadership the magazine will continue to reach new levels of success and will engage, inform and entertain readers like never before."Sportsnet was launched in 2011 and Intini was deputy editor from the start. He had previously been managing editor of Macleans.ca and then senior editor of Maclean's, where he had worked for 11 years in various writing and editing roles.
All is forgiven? -- Matt O'Grady once again to be editor of BCBusiness
The decision to lure him back may have had something to do with a reorganization related to the departure of Gary Davies as publisher (who returned to Calgary) and the need for an experienced hand on the tiller at BCB, backstopping Tom Gierasimcsuk, who had been named vice-president, editorial of Canada Wide and was stickhandling the launch of BCLiving magazine. [Update: Gierasimcsuk is now the publisher of BCBusiness.]

"I have a theme this year, which might be strange coming from someone who runs a fulfillment company, but I think we’re going to start remembering we’re in business because we generate great content that large numbers of consumers find provocative, compelling and worth paying for. I think we need to focus less on the distribution mechanisms. It’s not so much about being there, it’s really about what do you deliver once you’re there."-- Malcolm Netburn, chairman and CEO of CDS Global in a sponsored Q & A in Folio: [note: CDS Global advertises on Canadian Magazines]

branch (as distinguished from freelancers who work under omnibus contracts such as with the CBC). Accommodating and meeting the priorities of freelancers is something CMG has been pondering for some time. It said in a recent posting on Story Board:
"We’ve concentrated on figuring out how we, as a union, can adapt to the growing self-employed workforce that deals with multiple engagers, and provide practical and effective supports to individuals and groups."What they've come up with is a voluntary membership of $150 a year, by which all freelance writers, journalists, consultants and self-employed workers in all media, creative, communications, IT and knowledge sectors may be represented and have services provided to them. These services include a dedicated website, educational workshops, a member directory, savings on smart phone plans, credit card and insurance rates and an affordable group health plan. They are working on creating "contracts that mean what they say...and say what they mean". The project has been guided by organizer Datejie Green since last September.
The CMG, which is a local of CWA/SCA Canada, a division of the Communications Workers of America, represents 6,000 workers in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation/Société Radio-Canada (CBC/SRC), The Canadian Press, Reuters, Agence France-Presse (AFP), TVO, TFO, the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (aptn), ZoomerMedia, Shaw Media and CKOI Radio Gatineau (Québec). And, now, media freelancers.
"It’s increasingly clear that this type of membership will be a major aspect of the union movement in the future as we seek to also represent workers who do not have permanent ongoing jobs," says the CMG. "A growing amount of media work is being done independently by freelancers or in workplaces that are too small for a traditional bargaining unit structure.There continues to be a Canadian Freelance Union, which is a chapter of the mega-union Unifor (formed last fall by the merger of the Canadian Auto Workers and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Unions. Originally under the auspices of the CEP, the CFU has long had many of the same organizing goals as the CMG, including representing new groups of workers -- the growing numbers of individuals in media (and other sectors) who work on contract or freelance.

Vancouver magazine unveils redesign
"We’ve all been at that stage in a relationship: you love each other but you can’t help think it wouldn’t kill your other half to hit the gym once in a while," said the magazine in a release. "With the freshly redesigned issue, Vancouver magazine has done more than attend the occasional yoga drop-in. It has trained for a marathon.
” 'Readers will be thrilled to see the sophisticated design and new content', said Lori Chalmers, Publisher of Vancouver magazine and Western Living. 'In particular, an increased focus on food and wine reflects our readers’ passion and interests, and affirms our position as the city’s premier consumer magazine.' ”Food and drink coverage and the popular designing section has been moved forward. There is an inreased emphasis on food and wine and nearly every page is signposted and the content is delivered in three sections:
- The Brief introduces more real estate coverage and takes on the month’s leading stories and story makers. Politics, sports, the arts, business — it’s a highly curated, unique, opinionated filter of the best (and the worst) the city has to offer.
- The Dish covers Vancouver’s restaurants and bars, with added suggestions for nights at home (as one example, check out a lifesize King crab on pg. 36 of the January/February issue, with recipes.) Readers come to Vanmag for food—now the culinary section is even more enticing.
- The Goods is a new section reporting on shopping, travel, health and fitness, and style.
Reader's Digest unveils completely
"You’ve probably already noticed our fresh cover look, but in fact, the entire magazine has undergone a redesign. We asked what you liked best about Reader’s Digest and we’re happy to unveil a makeover to enhance your reading experience. From a new logo that emphasizes the “Reader” to an expanded selection of stories, this redesign is tailored to the people who told us they love our content and want more of it. We’re bringing you more tales to make you laugh or cry, more deep reads that motivate you to think and take action, more fun and more inspiration. And to make the type easier to read and the pages easier to turn, we’ve picked a white, thicker paper."Among other things, rather than cluster together all the jokes and humour for which the magazine is well-known, these have now, again, been spread throughout the issue.

"It's one of those few places where you can cover celebrities, politics, human interest stories and more," said Jess Cagle, who had been managing editor of Entertainment Weekly and was named Friday to succeed Larry Hackett as People's top editor.AdAge reported that Cagle will be overseeing all People's print and digital efforts but will serve in a newly created position as editorial director of Entertainment Weekly. Asked what he wants to change at the flagship publication, he said:
"One thing I can say is maybe do it all with more humor. How do you add humor? How do you make it more entertaining? That's one thing I know I want to add. It's something we can do in the magazine and online and with the many brand extensions we want to create down the line."The story said People last year accounted for 20% of all revenue of the parent company Time Inc.
|Douglas Kelly: "turning brands into|
Tony Gagliano, the executive chairman and CEO of St. Joseph said :
“Content marketing has become a significant component of the marketing mix required to reach and engage consumers in today’s digital reality. It is now a multi-billion dollar category in North America and we see a huge opportunity here.”The relatively recent developments in closely integrating advertising and marketing messages with traditional editorial (hence "native advertising"), is exemplified by the creation of this content development and professional services group. (It has also resulted in adoption of sometimes baffling new jargon):
“In this quickly changing media, marketing and communications landscape, it is becoming increasingly clear that relevant and engaging content channeled to a targeted audience helps build and deepen the relationship between a brand and its community,’’ said Kelly [in a release]. “Through best-in-class content, we aim to turn brands into multi-platform publishers and audiences into brand loyalists.’’
“Strategic Content Labs will lead St. Joseph’s entry into this quickly expanding space," said Douglas Knight, the president of St. Joseph's Media Group. "Leveraging our publishing ecosystem insights and award-winning storytelling expertise, under Douglas Kelly’s leadership, we will help marketers, associations and governments achieve measureable results through the adoption of a brand-as-publisher approach to engaging audiences with compelling content.”
“It all starts”, said Kelly, “with listening to our clients and their customers and creating a mix of content distributed and curated across the social spectrum, web and traditional media, supported by state-of-the-art measurement tools to drive measureable results.”

Quote, unquote: The adaptable magazine business
"For several years, pundits have predicted that traditional magazine publishers would soon go the way of newspapers, shriveling up from massive losses of advertising, circulation, and profitability. But 2013 proved them wrong. Magazines – or, rather, “magazine media” – are adapting better to the web and are finding growth in such fields as events and services. Some had banner years for their print products, with increased ad pages and even some expanded ratebases. Meanwhile, one of the nation’s most storied newspapers was so diminished in value that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was able to buy it with some spare change he had lying around."
Ward will be responsible for overseeing advertising sales, circulation and marketing for both Canada's History and the children's history magazine Kayak. Working with president and CEO Deborah Morrison, according to a release, she will be developing strategies to extends the magazine brands and build new revenue streams. She will continue to be based in Toronto.
Canada's History has a paid circulation of 32,000 and PMB-measured reach of 965,000 readers or 25 readers per copy. Kayak has a paid English circulation of 8,000 and extended controlled distribution to 32,000 French subscribers through a partnership with the Quebec-based Les Débrouillards magazine.
Ward has been a director of Magazines Canada and served as treasurer for two years and as cultural magazines chair for three. She has also been an industry advisor for the Ontario Media Development Corporation.

“There is something about having that large expanse of real estate in your lap, something about the format, that is extremely satisfying. Having many different things you may be interested in on a page, as opposed to a single thing surrounded by ads as it is on the web, leads to the formation of different connections and leads to a different experience.”

Color, the skateboarding lifestyle magazine
"Fourcorner Publishing Inc. recognizes that the legacy Color Magazine leaves behind would not be made possible without the support from its loyal advertisers and devout readership, but Color wasn’t conceived for the purpose of doing business, it was always a passion for the publisher who was consistently inspired and motivated by the people who helped put it all together."Back issues of the magazine will be available at two shows in Long Beach, California, later this week and in Vancouver the week after.
Founder/producer Alessandro Grison said:
“Color has been a dream for me… The magazine gave me the opportunity to sit and get to know so many of my heros and experience things I never thought I would in my lifetime. It opened my eyes to a world outside of my own as I hope it did for others.I may have received back just as much as we gave [while making the magazine]—which was always all of ourselves. I am forever grateful for the amazing people I met and got the opportunity to work with over the years. I’m thankful to walk away enriched by memorable experiences”.According to the magazine's website, the idea for the magazine transpired in September 2002 "between two out-of-work artists in an East Vancouver apartment building. Sandro Grison and David Christian sought to explore and accurately depict skateboard culture, and the things that inspired those within it."
