Worth repeating

TSF received this anonymous comment today for our "Licia's exit 2" posting and it is worth repeating:

"Licia (Corbella) will definitely be missed, but her departure is not surprising, as it fits with the pattern of departures of all the other people who did the same job.

In just over a year (starting with the cuts that began last fall and the system of "centres of excellence" that was then imposed), all six Comment editors from the Sun dailies have left, some via buyouts and some less voluntarily:

Licia (Calgary), Larry Cornies (London), Mike Jenkinson (Edmonton), Linda Williamson (Toronto), Geoff Matthews (Ottawa) and John Gleeson (Winnipeg).

Aside from Rob Granatstein in Toronto, who has taken over the job brilliantly, Quebecor doesn't seem to have done much to replace the rest, preferring to centralize operations under Paul Berton in London.

Editorials have returned on a regular basis in Toronto, but for the other Suns, a strong opinion section no longer seems to be a priority."
