In­tro­duc­ing our new Ed­i­to­rial Ad­vi­sory Panel

The Victoria Standard - - Commentary - FROM THE ED­I­TOR

The Vic­to­ria Stan­dard has named three in­di­vid­u­als to serve on its first-ever Ed­i­to­rial Ad­vi­sory Panel - Mau­reen Goo­goo, owner/ed­i­tor of Ku’ku’kwes (www.kukuk­wes. com), a news website cov­er­ing Indige­nous news in At­lantic Canada; Ian Mac­neil, Pres­i­dent of Real Me­dia Con­sult­ing and for­mer host of CBC’S Cape Bre­ton In­for­ma­tion Morn­ing; and Dan Chi­as­son, re­tired lawyer and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Di­rec­tor for the Bad­deck Vol­un­teer Fire De­part­ment.

The vol­un­teer panel is tasked with meet­ing quar­terly to re­view the ed­i­to­rial con­tent of The Stan­dard and to pro­vide guid­ance on the over­all di­rec­tion of the pub­li­ca­tion. Pan­elists have agreed to re­view each is­sue of The Stan­dard and are avail­able for con­sul­ta­tion should the ed­i­to­rial team re­quire out­side in­put be­tween reg­u­larly-sched­uled re­views.

“We are ex­tremely grate­ful for the time th­ese pro­fes­sion­als have agreed to give to help make The Vic­to­ria Stan­dard an ever-re­li­able news source for the read­ers of Vic­to­ria County and be­yond.”

The Vic­to­ria Stan­dard an­nounced in Fe­bru­ary that it would be nam­ing an ed­i­to­rial ad­vi­sory panel. The other com­mit­ment made by The Stan­dard at that time was to re­lease a set of ed­i­to­rial poli­cies and guide­lines to pro­vide its read­er­ship with a clear un­der­stand­ing of the rules un­der which the pub­li­ca­tion op­er­ates. Those doc­u­ments are cur­rently be­ing fi­nal­ized and re­viewed by the panel and will be posted to The Vic­to­ria Stan­dard’s website (www.vic­to­ri­a­s­tan­dard.ca) in the com­ing weeks.
