I believe one of the strengths of this blog and this site is the legions of people who comment valuable insights below articles and posts. Frankly, I visit the comments sections of many other sites and feel they do more harm than good. Thankfully, we have a good of people who are genuinely interested in what is written and are looking to assist others in learning more about the stories.
One of the things I wished I have the time to do myself (or that the site had the resources to do) is to feature those comments.
Instead, I’m going to blog as often as I can when I see an extremely valuable comment. Today, I’ve seen one. Matthew G, in the comments section of my recent news piece “No end to York strike as government holiday begins” writes about the recent history of Ontario’s labour relations law and make an good argument about the democratic/anti-democratic nature of a forced ratification vote.
Here’s a link directly to the comment: http://oncampus.macleans.ca/education/2008/12/11/no-end-to-york-strike-as-govt-holiday-begins/#comment-8209
