A family affair – two generations of “Good News” BC newspaper publishers outside their new Lower Mainlaind offices: Andy, Pritam, Dave and Ronnie Sidhu, of Abbotsford, BC’s Punjabi Patrika newspaper
Punjabi Patrika Media Ltd, established almost two decades ago, dedicated themselves to becoming North America’s first Punjabi-English newspaper, and still holds membership in the exclusive “club” of less than 100 truly bilingual newspapers in the world today.
Proudly Indo-Anglo Canadian
The Sidhu family has worked tirelessly to establish a stellar reputation in both the Anglo and South Asian communities as the best value in helping advertisers in reaching across cultural divides to draw customers from every sector of the Lower Mainland to their businesses, organizations and events.
The Patrika – more formally known as The Punjabi Patrika – is distributed door-to-door in selected neighbourhoods throughout the Central Fraser Valley, as well as at advertiser locations throughout BC. Patrika Readers know to pick up their copy hot-off-the-press at their favourite pick-up location early each weekend, as this sought-after publication is snapped-up within a day of hitting the streets!
Good News in English-Punjabi Languages
Patrika Readers are drawn to the “Canadian Multiculturally-adept” manner in which the Anglo-Indo newspaper is crafted to the reader’s interests and language. At the turn of every page, this newspaper is designed to present timely “good news” in an easily-readable fashion – it’s designed for casual reading throughout the week, until the next “Friday” issue is delivered, FREE, to home, and business.
Timely Topics for Eager Readers
Dedicated Patrika Readers look forward to reading articles aimed at their interests, local and regional news that affects their families lives, and well-written columns by renowned local writers of opinion and culture.
