Ottawa Sun -1

Geoff Matthews has made his exit as Comment Editor at the Ottawa Sun and he was allowed to do so with a farewell column.

Geoff, a seven-year Sun Media staffer, says his exit from the Sun
is "an opportunity to ply my trade somewhere else."

If you know where that "someone else" is, e-mail TSF.

"It's not easy saying goodbye. Not after nearly seven years at the Sun," Geoff wrote in his final column May 3.

"I can't tell you how many columns, editorials and stories I have written in those years. Some found general agreement, others harsh criticism. Some, I hope, made you stop and think. Hopefully many informed you.

"This one has the most simple message of them all: Goodbye and God bless all of you. "

Geoff's final day on the job was last Friday.

Yesterday, this Help Wanted ad was posted for a new Ottawa Sun Comment Editor.
