The Clearwater-North Thompson Times has won first place for Best Editorial Page from Canadian Community Newspaper Association.
The newspaper won the same award in 2011 and 2014.
“In evaluating for the award, the judges would have been looking at such things as the presence of a local editorial, the number of local letters to the editor, a good editorial page cartoon, and the general layout of our two opinion pages,” said Times editor Keith McNeill. “The fact that we have our Question of the Week as a regular feature likely gave us bonus marks.”
Second place for Best Editorial Page went to the MacLeod Gazette of Fort Macleod, Alberta. Third place went to Vulcan Alberta’s Vulcan Advocate.
CCNA announced the winners of its Better Newspaper competition on Friday, March 27.
The award will be presented during a CCNA awards gala at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto on May 22.
