The Summerland Review will feature a series of guest columnists in the coming weeks.

The columnists will run on the editorial page and will address local issues or topics with a Summerland connection.

Larry Mercier, publisher of the Summerland Review, said the guest columns are intended as a forum for a variety of voices in the community. They are also presented as a way to generate thought and discussion.

“Through these columns, we want to engage with our readers and present multiple viewpoints,” he said.

The first of these columns is featured in today’s paper. More will appear in the weeks ahead.
