Comment 81586

A lot of comments from a lot of people raising a lot of interesting and valid points. It's informative and helpful to hear all these views, both the positive and negative. All of them will help to inform and changes we will make and new approaches we will take in the future.

Whether I agree or disagree with the comments, I don't think it's right for me to argue with people about how they perceive our site, or our work. But I should correct inaccuracies or false statements and there is one thing that keeps cropping up which is completely inaccurate and untrue: that we will not hire Hamiltonians. When we hired our reporting staff (it's three full-time, not five as stated in the article, and one part-time on a short-term contract) we hired the people we felt were the best candidates, regardless of where they were born or where they lived at the time. A condition of employment was moving to Hamilton, and all of the full-time staff reporters now live in Hamilton.
