Last week’s Pique N Yer Interest column by reporter Paul
Carlucci offended some people, including members of the RCMP. To those people,
I apologize sincerely.
The column, like all columns, was a personal opinion and did
not reflect the position or sentiments of Pique Newsmagazine.
We strive to include a variety of opinions, including those of
editorial staff, our regular contributors and members of the public through the
letters section. Free expression of opinions is one of the cornerstones of any
newspaper. That does not, of course, mean that anything goes. We endevour to
keep the discussions respectful and relevant. The failure to meet that standard
is mine alone.
We have always valued our working relationship with the local
RCMP and respected the challenges they face in fulfilling their duties, and
will continue to do so.
