Re: “Maritime Film Classification Board: Revealed

First of all, I understand that this group is part of a public organization, and is open to public scrutiny and questioning, however....

Honestly...who cares? What a waste of time this article is. Is it really necesary to come up with conspiracy theories about EVERY public entity in the Western world these days? Is this really the best 'investigative' reporting The Coast has to offer? An 'expose' on a group of mostly retired individuals who basically volunteer their time and energy (yes, there is a small reimbursement, but would you watch "Jack & Jill" for free?)? If THIS is the worst thing going on in relation to the Provincial or Federal governments (or even *gasp* the Private Sector..!!) then we must be living in some kind of Utopia. Surely there are more worthwhile things or organizations to report on, and "reveal" the "secret" actions of.

If it IS necessary to pay someone to write such an unnecessary article, then could they at least get their facts right, and interview people who have done the same? Mr Ron Foley MacDonald comes across as a pathetic individual with a grudge. He states; "they sit and they watch porn mostly, and they get paid a fee for it". This is outrageous and possibly defamation of character for those individuals listed, as this is CERTAINLY NOT what this group is "mostly" doing with their time.

That brings me to my last point; as I have contacted at least one person on this list (no I am not one of them, nor do I have any affiliation), I do know that the people whose names are printed here were not contacted in any way to inform them of an article linking them with 'sitting around getting paid to watch porn all day'. I wonder if Mr. Foley MacDonald was asked if HIS name could appear in the paper? I'm guessing he was....well done Coast.

I have always had great respect for The Coast, but after reading this, and checking the facts, this article is, in my anonymous, humble opinion, an unfair misrepresentation, leaving me to question other articles published here. *sigh*

All that being said, thanks for the space to provide an opinion.
