Vancouver’s street paper celebrates 20th Anniversary

Vancouver’s street paper Megaphone celebrated its recent 20th birthday with a special anniversary edition. Now on to its 111th issue, the paper’s staff, volunteers and vendors have reason to be proud of their achievements. 
Editor Sean Condon said about the special edition: “This issue we track the history of street news in Vancouver from the iconic Georgia Straight’s start as a street paper in the 1960s, to the birth of Spare Change, its evolution into The Street, a merger with Street Corner, and finally the change to Megaphone Magazine. But Megaphone wouldn’t be the magazine it is today without the hard work and dedication of our vendors, and we celebrate them with profiles ranging from the veterans who have been with us from the start to the newcomers using the paper to turn their lives around.”
