CORNWALL Ontario – Imagine using ALS as a cause to play petty small town politics? That’s exactly what some media outlets did in Cornwall Ontario today.
Many across social media are using the ALS challenge for the right reasons of raising awareness; but many are also using it to self promote.
We at CFN are not big at self promotion as it can be considered kind of tacky.
The Seaway News made a point of it being for “Print Media” but our print edition of South Stormont News has been delivered in Cornwall since its first edition and of course CFN is the largest media outlet in the city. Also left out was Le Journal who are a Cornwall Print Media. Perhaps Mr. Lihou’s headline should have been: Petty Media Who Leave Others Out do ALS Challenge?
Hugo Rodrigues, president of the CAJ participated in this as well.
Our print media friends in Cornwall joined us for the ALS ice bucket challenge. We’ve nominated TV Cogeco and our colleagues at Corus in Cornwall. You have 24 hours, folks. The participants in this video made personal donations to the ALS Society of Canada.
It would be interesting to see what kind of cheques these folks cough up, no? Hopefully this classless and petty act raises some real dosh for ALS.
