Abbotsford|Today magazine and www.abbotsfordtoday.ca are brought to you by a group of business people, taxpayers and residents of Abbotsford and
Mission concerned that issues of importance to the voters should receive full public discussion in the run-up to this NovemberÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s municipal election.
The first publication of Abbotsford|Today on October 20, 2008, coincided with the launch of a new website, abbotsfordtoday.ca, that we hope will revolutionize the way Abbotsford residents communicate with one another and discuss matters
of importance to their community.
Abbotsford Ratepayers AssociationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s (ARA) president Vince Dimanno, retired Mission councillor Ron Taylor, former newspaper editor Mike Archer, as well as journalist and Langley Township councillor Jordan Bateman have all contributed to the project. We hope to have a great deal of input, in our second edition, from readers, concerned residents and candidates.
We are committed to an open discussion, involving the public, in the management and administration of public affairs in Abbotsford. Abbotsford|Today will contain opinion and commentary on issues
of importance to residents, news and feature stories as well as letters and guest columns by experts, concerned citizens and the politicians, administrators and public officials who manage the public agenda in
More than that, we are embarking on a cultural experiment by presenting; in their own words Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and sometimes in their own language Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the news, opinions and information of interest from as many communities within Abbotsford as will help us do so.
The Abbotsford|Today.ca website will offer opportunities to all cultural and ethnic groups within the larger community to showcase their culture and communicate, in their own way, with the larger community.
Our commitment to free speech means we will not present a one-sided chronicle of public affairs in our community but rather we will offer differing points of view on the subjects we cover. We are issuing an
open invitation to all stakeholders, residents and people with something of value to add to the discussion to participate in Abbotsford|Today and Abbotsford|Today.ca so that all voices in our community can be heard.
