In 1994…

 
The average family income was $55,000 per year.

The original Lion King was a box office hit.

The average price of a single-family home in Canada was $150,000.

Lethbridge had a population of just over 60,000 residents.

Jean Chrétien was just elected Prime Minister for the first time.

Kids in the Hall and Street Legal were in its final year on CBC.

The price of gas jumped above 50 cents per litre for the first time.

Email addresses were used in post-secondary schools for the first time.

A first-class stamp from Canada Post cost $0.43.

Facebook wouldn’t exist for another 10 years.

Lethbridge Living was published for the first time.


Like so many things over the past 25 years, Lethbridge Living needs to change with the times. Lethbridge Living will be launching a re-brand in 2020 telling Lethbridge stories in print and digitally. 

Fortunately, the appreciation of our community stories remains unchanged. So while our look will change in 2020, we are going to keep on bringing you great stories about the everyday heroes in our community in new ways that could not have been imagined in 1994.

We’ll also be launching the Lethbridge Living app and the Lethbridge Living Film Festival in support of nonprofits and the Endowment Fund in Spring 2020.

We’ll celebrate stories and will feature more award-winning and locally produced documentaries that reflect our great community. After 25 great years, we’re getting ready for another 25 more.
