Purpose
This issue the purpose is to raise money to help the paper keep going as it exists largely through the donated time and money donated by its owners. If you feel you can help us through donations or through advertising we would certainly appreciate the aid. Our advertisers enjoy a loyal readership which is both intelligent and curious about the world around us. To perform responsibly requires a superior sense of direction and positive approach to rights and wrongs affecting society at large. Traditional right (controllers) and left (libertarians) politics has to be transcended with both humor and skill which comes from experience and an ongoing stream of news information. We feel we are uniquely situated to do this. Helpful reporting of unique news supplied by pressure groups helps to inform. Simultaneously we maintain a critical opinion of their efforts as well. Unfortunately, we can’t report all we know of or we would be forced off the streets by authorities and corporations. We have been threatened physically as well. Those who say we are ‘left’ or ‘right’ are simply bigots unable to look deeply at issues in society.

For those of you who have asked about the setup of the Toronto Street News: It does not pay salaries to its workers. Instead, it exists due to the volunteer labour and time donated by the editors, writers and publisher in partnership with LoveCry, the street kids’ organization and others and from the advertiser monies earned. The paper is sold to the homeless, unemployed and seniors who wish to re-sell it on the streets of Toronto. We sell the paper to them at the best price we can afford; if they do not have the money we give them papers. We do not live off the homeless, neither do we receive grants of any kind nor ads from government. We work to provide the best price to the homeless of any street paper that helps. If you would like to subsidize our costs with money, photography, writing or volunteer labour we will thank you and put your efforts to good use. LoveCry, the street kids’ registered charity will provide a registered charity number for all donations provided.
