Save Edmonton Journal's Arts Coverage

This petition had 739 supporters

Major cuts to arts coverage are being proposed at the Edmonton Journal:

  • There will be no more previews of classical music events
  • Reviews will be extremely limited: only classical music events that have a major celebrity performing will potentially be reviewed
  • Reviews will be on the web only
  • There will no longer be a full-time Arts editor

The Journal has been a major source for Edmontonians to find out about upcoming arts events and the reviews are a key component of the performance scene. The proposed cuts will have a devastating effect on the arts community. We urge the Journal to reconsider these cuts.

Show your support for continuing local arts coverage by signing this petition and consider contacting editor-in-chief Mark Iype ( and VP editorial, western Canada, Lorne Motley ( to voice your concerns.
