Print This Page
Neil Reynolds, holder of the Irving Chair in Journalism, will deliver a public lecture on “How Journalism Can Thrive and Newspapers Prosper for Another 100 Years”.
The lecture will be held Wednesday, October 19th, in the Ted Daigle Auditorium in Edmund Casey Hall beginning at 7:00 pm.
In the 1800s, newspapers connected people through free-wheeling debate and an authentic sense of community. Mr. Reynolds will argue that now, in an impersonal era of disconnection and fragmentation, newspapers must return to the values that once before made them indispensable parts of community life.
For those of you who might be interested-I went down to Saint John High School to ask if I could go in and hear what Ms.Hooten had to offer for my area and to get an honest feel for what both sides were offering and or had on the table.
As I started to enter I was told by Mr.Jay Chang And Mr.Idee(????), (sorry I can't recall his last name at this moment),,Listen Tim you know that we both think highly of you and that your a good person but for this one we have to decline on letting you go in,anything else you know we would definitly do it for you but just not this one.
Idee then proceeded to pull out his wallet and flash his Conservative member card to everyone that was there and said--See this,if you do not have one you don't get in.
He also went on to tell me that this meeting is private and for members only, To which I replied----
So what you are saying to me is your party is holding a Private meeting in a Public building of which belongs to the tax payers and is in my riding?? and all I want to do is hear from both sides on the issues at hand to see what the differences might be from one party to the next.
To which he once again replied,Tim anything else just not this one I'm sorry and at that I thanked him, shook his hand and left.
Oh one last thing I went there with NO signs,No hand-outs,nothing of any kind just myself to be an observer.
