Bring Back Dylan Young! sign now

As Montrealers and others who value the HOUR and its role in our community, we also believe in defending our journalists when they come under unfair attack. It is in this spirit that we call on HOUR publisher Pierre Paquet to reconsider the summary firing of "Young and the Restless" columnist Dylan Young.

Young, a long-standing contributor to HOUR and a favourite of many who follow Montreal's music scene, was stripped of his column and music writer status without notice this past April. In the over half a year period in which the HOUR ran his column, Young's writings were entertaining, informative, and insightful. Although we understand that mistakes may have been made, we detect no clear reason other than trivial personal grudges in the motives behind the severity of his punishment. Young has been a prolific and well-respected member of the HOUR team for the five years that he has been there. His recent treatment by the paper seems capricious and unduly severe.

We urge Mr. Paquet to reconsider this arbitrary and harsh decision, and grant Young the opportunity to address whatever issues may have motivated his harsh treatment by the publication where he has become such a fixture over the years.
