About Us


Independence from those we cover is a key principle of journalistic integrity. We avoid conflicts of interest and the appearance of conflicts. My Canada Times believes in paying the costs incurred in gathering and publishing news. In circumstances where that may not be possible, we disclose information that could create the perception of a conflict of interest. Transparency with our readers and openness about the potential for conflicts should guide our considerations about real or perceived conflicts.

Our columnists find, confirm and create news stories - and we anticipate that them should be precise. To accomplish this they ought to consistently try to validate claims and cross-check actualities.

There can be no compromise with accuracy. Accuracy is our most basic contract with readers and is the responsibility of everyone in our newsrooms. Accuracy is grounded in verification, the essence of journalism. We must check and double-check all the information we publish, including information from all other publications.

We make sure that our sources are verifiable and trustworthy from multiple accounts, and gather a substantial amount of information before we place something online. Before each story we ultimately publish we ask ourselves: Is this story newsworthy? Are we telling the whole story? Are our sources reputable, credible, and transparent? How can we be informative and fair? Only after we are satisfied that we have created something worth publishing and had it reviewed by editors do we publish the piece.
