Help Us Tweak Our New System

 250News is moving to a new operating system and would like some feedback from you before the switch is complete.

The site will actually look the same,  but  will  include a new  feature  as 250News starts a subscription to Canadian Press to bring  you the latest stories from across the Province,  Canada and around the world.

Also new to this system is the ability for  the editor to edit comments.  This should  remove  the need to delete  an  entire comment because of issues of legality, bullying or good taste.

What will be new is that the very first time  you comment,   your comment won’t appear automatically as it will have to be  approved by the editor before it appears.  This will only  apply  for the very first time you comment on the site.

So here is the link to our “test site”.   We encourage you to visit it,  explore it, and  let us know about any issues  you may  discover.  You will not need to re-register, as all  registered users  have  already been added to  the new site.

Send your feedback to  

We look forward to hearing from  you.
