The Tyee Confidence: 78% Arrow up

The Tyee is a left-of-centre independent online Canadian news magazine that primarily covers British Columbia.

It was founded in November 2003 by its editor-in-chief, David Beers, an award-winning writer and former features editor at The Vancouver Sun.

Since its launch it has recruited a number of other writers, including Steve Burgess, Murray Dobbin, Michael Geist, Terry Glavin, Mark Leiren-Young, Rafe Mair, Will McMartin, Shannon Rupp, Vanessa Richmond and Dorothy Woodend.

The name "Tyee" is based on the current local definition of Tyee salmon—a Chinook or Spring salmon of 30 lbs or more.

The word is derived from the Nuu-chah-nulth language, meaning a chief, a king, or champion.

It also embodies the magazine's dedication to publishing lively, informative news and views, to "roam free, and go where we wish" as the tyee salmon do.

Vancouver Confidence: 75% Arrow up

Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in Canada, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia.
