About


About Us ...

Pacific Free Press was launched in March 2007 by Dutch-Canadian Richard Kastelein and editor Chris Cook -  based in British Columbia. The site is a sister to Atlantic Free Press and Brick Ogden, an American Expatriate in Amsterdam has been a key supporter of this project.

The mission of Pacific Free Press is simple: to dig out nuggets of truth from the slag-heap of lies, ignorance and witless diversion that has buried public discourse today. Pacific Free Press provides a new venue for disseminating hard news and insightful, fact-based analysis of the harsh realities too often ignored or distorted by the mainstream press.
