Cornwall ON – We all can make mistakes and I wish to fully and completely apologize without reserve to the many viewers, partners, and sponsors of The Cornwall Free News. Recently a comment was made on the site that had language which I even find offensive.
While I could type reasons and point out that we’ve had over 10,000 comments on this site without much issue those would only be excuses.
Ultimately while Freedom of speech is important and our policy is that we don’t like to edit people’s words; simply have a comment go through or not, in this case I failed and I apologize and take full responsibility for any distress caused to anyone that read the offensive words or terms.
Freedom of speech is important, but with all freedoms come responsibility. The Cornwall Free News is a family newspaper. True at times a dysfunctional one, but still today and always, will be a family paper.
