Alberni Valley News reporter Hamilton works on special project

Wawmeesh Hamilton will spend his summer working on a special series on aboriginal youth programs for TheTyee.ca and Black Press.

Alberni Valley News reporter Wawmeesh Hamilton is taking the summer off. But he’s not on vacation.

Hamilton has been chosen by The Tyee online news site to write a feature series on aboriginal youth programs in Canada.

His project will take him to Winnipeg, Calgary, and several locations in British Columbia. Look for his work both on thetyee.ca as well as www.albernivalleynews.com this summer.

As we bid Hamilton good luck in his exciting project, we welcome reporter Christopher Sun to the community.

Sun will be with us for the summer.

He is already hard at work covering Hamilton’s beats and looking for more story ideas.

Sun is from Vancouver, but he’s spent time reporting in Ladysmith, Fort St. John and the Lower Mainland in the past.

If you have something you think Sun should be covering, e-mail him at reporter@albernivalleynews.com or give him a call at 250-723-6399 and welcome him to Port Alberni.
