Press breakdown causes delay in AV News delivery

Mechanical issues with our press in Ladysmith has resulted in a day's delay in News delivery

If you’ve missed receiving your Alberni Valley News for Thursday, Aug. 28/14, please don’t blame your carrier. An unfortunate mechanical issue at our press in Ladysmith has meant our papers were not delivered on time.

Carriers will be receiving their bundles on Friday morning, Aug. 29/14 and delivering them as soon as they are able to get them to your doorstep, in rural boxes and businesses.

In the meantime, you can catch our Aug. 28/14 e-edition at, where you’ll find front page coverage of this weekend’s Salmon Fest at Clutesi Haven Marina, and the full festival program on pages 16–17. Our flyers can be found online at
