SIX GOING 96 AND BEYOND

Editorial cartoon by Romy Castro

TIME flies fast! 

It seems only yesterday but OpinYon is now celebrating its 6th anniversary which is something that we are very thankful for.

OpinYon was conceived by our Publisher and Editor Mr. Ray Junia to be the leading light and primary champion for consumer protection.

The idea was born of the fact that Mr. Junia was aware that consumers are often at the mercy of oligarchs who control big businesses and industries and in the process also direct the economic fate of the country.

Some of our critics were quick in dismissing us with some of them even predicting that we will be out of business in less than a year.

Their prognosis is not without basis especially since they know that we cannot secure regular subscriptions and ad placements from big corporations because our advocacy makes those businesses often the subject of our adverse headlines and editorials.

But we persevered and are still persevering inspired by our belief that the public who are also consumers need a reliable partner whom they can trust and will not sell their souls to the devil. 

And with the help of people who believe in us and in our advocacy, we were able to survive not only the first year but are now going in our seventh year.

The past five years was quite a ride with storms coming our way but we were able to see through them and in the process succeeded in making some unbelievers into believers.

Therefore, it is but proper that we convey our sincerest gratitude to the many people who are supporting us despite all the many trials that we have encountered through the past years.

Of course, we would like also to thank our loyal readers, supporters and sponsors who stayed with us and never wavered in their support of our advocacy.

But ultimately it is our people who are the ones that fuel and inspire us to continue and blaze a trail to support and protect the interest of our consumers.

Rest assured that from here on we will continue to come up with comprehensive, well-written and well-researched articles as we pursue our battle to promote the interest of the public.

Surely, we do not plan to stop at six but we intend to go for 96 more years and beyond because we believe that we will continue to exist as long as there are consumers who will need our help and protection.
