What about news of Canada?
Comment: I would like to see more Canadian news in the Spokesman-Review, particularly news from the provinces adjacent to Washington state: British Columbia, Alberta. I would find analyses of Canadian politics and economy an interesting topic. I listen to the BBC on a satellite radio and sometimes hear stories that I never see in The Spokesman-Review. One recent example was a story about reported police brutality, including incidents in Vancouver. -- Joan Tracy, Cheney
Answer: Our new wire editors, who handle our national and international report, are in the process of developing new protocols and priorities, hoping to sharpen our report's focus on regions and events that have real relevance to our communities. That would likely mean more news out of Canada and, probably, Latin America.
But our wire space is limited, so there still will be times when major events in other parts of the world take priority. -- Steve Smith, editor
