Cross­word

The Victoria Standard - - Front Page -

In­tro­duc­ing a new puz­zle we hope won't make you down­right cross.

As part of our on­go­ing ef­fort to bring you a va­ri­ety of con­tent in The Vic­to­ria Stan­dard, we are try­ing out a new cross­word writ­ten and de­signed by Mur­ray “The Cross­word Guy” Jack­son. Mur­ray grew up in Cape Bre­ton but has been liv­ing in Ot­tawa for many years where he de­signs cross­words for a liv­ing. Let us know what you think of this new fea­ture by email­ing info@ vic­to­ri­a­s­tan­dard.ca or call­ing 902-295-1144.
