The GATE is proud to celebrate 17 years covering all things entertainment, culture, and style; from film, music and television, to travel, gaming and electronics.

Launched and operated by Owner and Editor-In-Chief, W. Andrew Powell, The GATE’s stories and reviews have been read around the world, but most importantly, across Canada, and we’re proud to feature Canadian talent and icons every week.

Over the years we have also been home to a number of guests writers, artists, and talents, including author and TV personality Christopher Heard, film critic Andrew Parker, theatre critic Susan Down, photographers Rick McGinnis and Paul Buceta, writer and social media personality Christine Estima, Toronto Sun writer Jenny Yuen, former Toronto Star writer Tim Alamenciak, and numerous others.

The GATE features annual coverage of events like the Toronto International Film Festival, Hot Docs, and the Oscars, and in the past we covered the MuchMusic Video Awards, Fan Expo, Canadian Music Fest, and North by Northeast, just to name a few highlights.

Our ongoing coverage of lifestyle, food, spirits, style, and specialty events in Toronto keep us busy, and we’re proud to work with top international brands throughout the year, and especially for our annual Holiday Gift Guide in late November.
