Congratulations on producing such a much-needed local news facility.
On first review, I find the style and features of the website very pleasing, and I look forward to following stories that are important to me as an Owen Sound resident.
I have only one suggestion, and that is to ask that a date-time be added to the header are of all stories. As your database grows, I think that this could be a useful feature.
I wish you all success with the Hub.
I wonder how many people are aware of the cruel repercussions of a spring black bear hunt? I'm writing to say that I find the Ministry of Natural Resource's decision to reopen the hunt sorely lacking, both in compassion and sound judgment.
Anyone familiar with the history of spring bear hunts knows that, following every hunting season, many bear cubs were found orphaned. Those cubs fortunate enough to be captured were doomed to spend the rest of their lives confined in some zoo or other. However, even rescued cubs were sometimes destroyed when zoos couldn't accommodate them all. But cubs not rescued certainly died of starvation which, sadly, is the likely fate of most orphaned bears. As Minister of Natural Resources, David Orazietti had a responsibility to know the consequences of a spring hunt before sanctioning yet another one.
