The Delta Optimist needs your support

Our editorial team used to regularly engage with residents on important topics that mattered to them through our Facebook page. Sadly, that’s no longer possible with Meta blocking news sites in Canada.

If you’d like to stay connected with the Optimist, we encourage you to comment on our stories, send us letters and sign up for our free daily newsletter.

And if you’re in a position to do so, please consider a financial contribution. Every dollar goes back into our journalism and means we can continue delivering local news.

We thank you for your support.
