Kya Publishing Supports Jamaal "Big Cat" Magloire's Editorial Debut

TORONTO, ONT. (January 2012) - Kya Publishing is proud to support Jamaal Magloire's weekly column "Big Cat's Corner" for The Caribbean Camera newspaper--his editorial debut.

Magloire (nicknamed the "Big Cat" by former teammate P.J. Brown, in tribute to his years as a University of Kentucky "WildCat") is a 12-year veteran of the National Basketball Association (NBA), a Toronto native of Trinidadian heritage, and the first Canadian to play for the Toronto Raptors. He is also a carnival bandleader for the Toronto Revellers.

"The Caribbean Camera readers are a part of my cultural community--and now also my professional community--and the reason why I contribute to this weekly column," said Magloire. "This is my chance to communicate with them and continue to be an ambassador of the city of Toronto and my Caribbean culture."

Founded in 2007 by Toronto author Stacey Marie Robinson, Kya Publishing is committed to the promotion and celebration of urban Canadian writing and culture through literature, and through assisting students, writers, and other professionals with their writing and publishing goals.

"Everyone knows how much Jamaal loves his West Indian community; it's an honour to be able to assist him with his contribution to The Caribbean Camera," said Robinson. "Throughout his career, Jamaal has continued to enhance the community's profile, and has done a great job communicating the story of his experiences as a first-generation Canadian. This is precisely the goal of Kya Publishing: to ensure that these stories are documented in Canadian history."

The Caribbean Camera, founded in 1990, is currently distributed weekly to 380,000 Caribbean-Canadians across the Greater Toronto Area. The publication can be found at many community businesses and West Indian establishments, or online at
