I wouldn't give them that much credit there, Jo. Their first attempt at a newsapaper went down the tubes super-quick - high school newspapers looked better than what they initially put out - so now they're trying to make a splash using slick paper, color photos and sensationalist stories/editorials/letters to the editor.
Their editorial this week was a incoherent joke - they targeted the MP city attorney of all people over the budget crunch and their "solution" to it was to immediately cut all city workers pay by 50%.
Then they printed letters to the editor from three of the biggest local muckrakers around - Pat White, Peter Carpenter and John Johns - which is way too coincidential - they must have solicited those 3 for letters.
I'm sure Hank Lawrence will be in next week, along with a guest opinion from Duboc.
Good for a laugh, but still definitely going nowhere fast.
