An early issue from the first year of publication with great psychedelic cover graphics by Sandy Love, an early interview with a then 24 year old Mick Jagger and a report from the October 21 Pentagon Protest. This is also the first issue to be co-edited by Fred Latremouille, the radio personality and CAB Hall of Fame inductee. "The Georgia Straight was created in May 1967 as an antiestablishment alternative to the conservative daily newspapers. And its arrival created an uproar. It was raided and fined by the Vancouver police for publishing obscenities, banned from distribution, and its founder, poet and UBC math student Dan McLeod, was thrown in jail." straight com.
