Updates are nice
Comment by Gary P. on 7th March 2011
I agree with the editor. Updates to these stories are nice to have. Too bad we didn't know all the 'confirmed' details and again, we all know how long it can take sometimes to get the 'confirmed' details.
Quit giving updates that are UNCONFIRMED!
Comment by Amy Perry on 7th March 2011
Seriously, this is a perfect example of rumors flying. If you can't confirm it, why would you post it online for all to read and run with? All people will see is the main point that you printed, not that it was "unconfirmed". Can we say "responsible press"? Give it a try sometime.

Ed Note: Amy, we know the names of each individual, their history and background. As a responsible press we leave the release of the names for the official channels, the RCMP to notify the next of kin and their official charges for release of the names.

As providing timely and responsible information we leave your assessment of all media up to you. All press, Global, Black, Pacific, and all the rest push the boundaries to be current and informative without obstructing juctice and causing further harm. Imagine how Fox would cover this.

The use of words such as, 'unconfirmed', are used very commonly to provide information that no official channel can or will confirm.

The RCMP usually, almost always, never provide a name of a suspect until a charge is laid and approved by crown council. This sometimes takes months and years. We do what we can to be more informative and timely.
