When the dust settled in the Calgary Sun newsroom yesterday, these staffers were out of work:
Kit Poole, assistant managing editor, 23 years service;
Ian Wilson, Business editor, 11 years service;
Carlos Amat, photographer, 23 years service;
Dan Toth, Calgary Stampeders beat writer, 10-plus years service;
Brian Whipp, systems manager, 20-plus years.
Roughly 90 years of Sun experience out the door.
Add the absence of promised profit sharing (despite a "record 2006" for the Calgary Sun) and raises that were to be given in January, and you are left with zero morale.
