This week CBC News has temporarily closed comments on indigenous stories.
It was not an easy decision to make. It took a lot of deliberation, including extensive discussion among managers and indigenous staff members.
As Brodie Fenlon, our acting director of digital news, said, "We don't want violations of our guidelines by a small minority of our commenters to derail our good work or alienate our audience."
Now CBC management has tasked a group of indigenous and non-indigenous staff members to develop guidelines and suggestions for reopening comments in the future.
Well if the CBC doesn't want to listen to you, that's okay. I do! Presenting an open comment thread below. Discuss the positives and negatives. No censorship and no login required.
