Mark Steyn is back!
Canadas favourite columnist joins new Western-based magazine
March 1, 2004 - CALGARY- Mark Steyn, the popular columnist who was a reader favourite at the National Post and ranks as one of the most in-demand writers in the world, will be writing for Canadians once again, in the pages of the Western Standard magazine which rolls of the presses on March 12th.
Canadians who have come to love Steyn, who writes regularly for such publications as the New York Sun, the Daily Telegraph of London, the Jerusalem Post and National Review, know that his columns alone are worth the price of a subscription, notes Ezra Levant, the Western Standards publisher.
Mark Steyns writing is admired around the world, but now he is coming back to his native land, says Levant. The Western Standard is a Canadian publication that is a good fit with his unique perspective on Canada and the world.
Steyn will be joining a team of pundits that consist of Canadas most exciting columnists, including Ted Byfield, David Warren, Michael Coren, Karen Selick and David Frum.
Whatever their political perspective, readers are certain to be challenged, informed and entertained by the compelling and provocative opinions they will find in the Western Standard, adds Kevin Libin, the Western Standards editor, who was most recently a senior writer at Canadian Business magazine.
In addition to the top-notch talent of columnists, readers will find the Western Standard brings them the hard-hitting news stories and thoughtful features that are missing from other publications in Canada, says Libin. With veteran writers like Candis McLean in Calgary, Terry ONeill in Vancouver, Kevin Steel and Ric Dolphin in Edmonton as well as reporter James Murray on Parliament Hill, the Western Standard promises to deliver readers the stories that other news outlets cant or wont cover.
The Western Standard publishes 24 times a year. A subscription costs $75. To subscribe, visit www.westernstandard.ca or call 1-866-520-5222. To speak with Ezra Levant, the Western Standards publisher, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (403) 708-5400.
