Have you seen the “Listen to Nigel” posters that are up all around town right now?

We didn't put them there!

Editorial cartoonist, Geoff Coates, was recently approached by a kind citizen named Eric Buchanan. Eric wanted to get the word out about physical distancing after he saw Geoff's cartoon for us that features Nigel Howard, Dr. Bonnie Henry's expressive sign language interpreter.

We allowed Eric to use the artwork and he paid to get a bunch printed and put them up on his own.

We've since had a bunch of requests from people who want to buy posters off of us, so we set the wheels in motion and are start selling them. We're taking orders right now.

We're selling these with Nigel's blessing, and partial proceeds are going towards his non-profit of choice; the Deaf Children's Society of B.C.. Nigel tells us that their government funding hasn't increased for many years yet the number of families with deaf children who need their services continues to increase.

Artist Geoff Coates will also be paid royalties from the sales of these posters, and what's left will be put towards supporting local news (us).

The posters measure 11"x17", printed digitally at VanPrint on Broadway, on 60lb paper stock.

Pricing is 1 poster for $15, 3 for $30, 10 for $50 or 25 for $100.

Shipping is through Canada Post (sorry, no pickup), going out next Friday. We will only be taking orders until Thursday, April 30th, 2020.
