I know it's the CFL off-season but finding any news on the Lions in this market has been a challenge, especially in the print media. As for any league news? Pffft. That's damn near impossible!
Clearly, since LU left the Province there's been a void that hasn't been filled on his beat. Steve Ewen (and Howard Tsumura) have covered the club but remarkably, the Province did not devote a single line to the potential Jennings hold-out (that story appeared in the Vancouver Sun, courtesy of Mike Beamish), nor did the Province provide any coverage to Skulsky leaving his post as club President. Wally's extension was a back page blurb. Since Postmedia has combined newsrooms, my fear is that in the near future, the Province will just use Beamish's stories (so readers will see the same stories in both papers).
I cancelled my Province subscription when LU retired and picked up a subscription to the Vancouver Sun as I figured that Beamish would continue on the Lions beat. Whenever I clicked on the Province, I had a certain number of reads before they asked me to pay for The Province, and once that happened, The Province articles were not available. That's fair game....
However, in reading about the Whitecaps game on Saturday night on the Vancouver Sun website, I noticed all the stories were by Marc Weber and attributed to The Province, even though it was on the Vancouver Sun webpage. There even is a story about the game from Ed Willes, The Province, available on the Vancouver Sun webpage.
Soo, it looks like David's fear may be coming true.....
