A number of emails from readers about national stories not covered by ODN
1. deaths in Nova Scotia
2. covid-19 updates
Local media cannot serve the public by trying to report on a sad story in the Maritimes – a shooting rampage – a shooter dead, an officer deceased and many others to be remembered!!!
Oliver Daily News has attempted to cover the Covid-19 story in BC, locally, and across the nation, the continent and the world.
But it has become a numbers game with many people expecting new stats, as current as possible, for WHAT purpose?
Fear spreads faster than the virus.
We are coming to the time when the curve should flatten and restrictions on the public lessened.
Let us hope this comes soon ….as the economy can only flex and stretch before it breaks.
This is April 21 – let us give it ……one more month. Victoria Day?
Let us ease restrictions and take a chance on continued social distancing and cleanliness.
BUT we have to get back to work
We have to re-engage employees
We have to re think pro’s versus con’s
and stop listening to the fear mongers.
