Barry Coulter

Barry Coulter had been Editor of the Cranbrook Townsman since 1998, and has been part of all those dynamic changes the newspaper industry has gone through over the past 20 years. He was sending his first email around the same time he was running his last page through the waxing machine, and bought a new film camera mere seconds before digital cameras made film obsolete. Coulter grew up in Saskatchewan, but has lived all over Canada, following a multitude of jobs and/or studies. When not on the job for the Townsman, he is a musician, and an actor with Cranbrook Community Theatre.
