A day to celebrate your newspaper carrier

Canadian Carrier Appreciation Day is Oct. 12

This Saturday, Oct. 12 marks Canadian Carrier Appreciation Day, a day to celebrate the critical role carriers play in bringing journalism to the doors of Canadians.

Like any other newspaper, the Penticton Western News wouldn’t be able to operate without its dedicated early-birds.

Tami Unrich is one of those carriers who has been delivering the Western for the last 15 years.

“It gets you out and gets you meeting people,” she said. “You get your own hours, you’re own set time and you do it two days a week. It’s a breeze.”

Ben Lee also delivers papers in Penticton and has been poudning the pavement for the last six years.

He says he enjoys the job because you can work at your own pace.

“It’s self motivated,” he explained. “You could pick just one route which is 100 papers and that would take an hour… and that is your $15.”

Lee and Unrich are just two of the many carriers that hit the streets each week to deliver the Penticton Western.

If you would like to be a carrier please contact: circulation@pentictonwesternnews.com or 778-476-8159.
