EDITOR’S NOTE

Re: letters to the editor during the federal election campaign.

Re: letters to the editor during the federal election campaign.

Fact checking is important to us. With a large number of letters to the editor to publish in a compressed time period, if you state a fact, state your source. The onus will be on the writer in this case and if a piece is time consuming to verify, it will be returned or bumped to the next edition. We will edit where required for those engaging in personal attacks, etc.

Issue-related letters to the editor will take precedence over “candidate endorsement” letters submitted to the paper. Precedence will also be given to letters only submitted to The NEWS for publication.

Please note that all letters to the editor are generally published in order of receiving them. We cannot guarantee that a letter writer submitting multiple letters will be published more than once, or that a letter will be published in a particular issue.

As with all letters, please e-mail to

editor@pqbnews.com and keep them to 300 words or less. Please do not send as attachments and please include your community of residence and a daytime phone number for confirmation purposes. We will edit for brevity, legal issues and taste.
