Trinity Today has been designed to focus primarily on news, events and activities in our local communities.
Although reporting on the latest fire and/or a car collision, are important they represent a small part of what should or could be considered “local news”.
We believe there is a need to peel back the first layer or dig beneath the community surface to uncover additional news elements; the good, the bad and sometimes, regretfully the ugly.
The good should and must be recognized and celebrated while at the same time it’s also important to expose the ugly. We believe, through these principles and practices, we can do our part in building an economically and socially sounder and healthier city and for that matter a better society.
Community news should include local sports, culture, health as well as additional topics important to our wide and ever changing demographic with their wide and varied interests.
Much of the news, activities and events posted at Trinity Today, will be: “by the community and for the community”.
Over the last few years during Common Council discussions we have heard reference to 3P models, referring to Private, Public Partnerships. Trinity’s version of the 3P model; is People of Passion and Purpose. We will invite those who feel that they are P3 to contribute as unpaid contributors, reporters and journalists.
Content and services offered by Trinity Today will be at no charge to the subscriber: The model is simple, there will be no fee for subscribers and financial compensation will not be provided to contributors.
Unfortunately web development, enhancements, hosting and maintenance services are not free. Web based advertising will be made available to those who wish to advertise on the Trinity Today web site.
Our responsibility and objective will be to deliver rich, relevant and meaningful content. We believe the key to the success of any media entity large or small, today or in the future; radio, TV or news will be found by providing good to excellent value to the subscriber.
In its purest and simplest form Trinity Today will be: A community news clearing house for the accumulation, sifting, sorting and distribution of community news, events and announcements as well as a forum for free and open community discussion and dialogue as well as the provision of provincial, national and international news.
In 1599 Shakespeare wrote: Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears; I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The year is now 2012 we at Trinity Today write: Friends, citizens, taxpayers lend us your voices; we come to bury ignorance, not to praise it.
Please join us with your voices at Trinity Today, a community news source: by the community, for the community. (revised Oct 25 2012)
