Getting Our Story Told

By Mick Rempel

On March 20th, more than 30 CARP Edmonton members and friends braved a snow storm on the first day of spring to hear Dan Barnes, Business Editor of the Edmonton Journal, provide tips and insights into what makes news in the newsroom, and how to get our stories and issues into the media.

Dan Barnes addresses CARP Edmonton

Dan spoke candidly about how a newspaper is organized, how it functions, and how they determine whether a story is worthy of following or printing. His message should prove valuable to the chapter as we work to get our message to the public and in front of the lawmakers who impact our lives.
