Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Coverage credited

A recent RCMP press release that credited media coverage in helping to track down five vandals who damaged the Criddle-Vane Homestead is a strong reminder of why news reporting continues to be relevant in our modern days.

On Wednesday, the Carberry RCMP credited news coverage by the Brandon Sun and CTV News of the extensive and systematic damage caused to the historic property, with prompting news tips from concerned citizens.

The tips helped to track down five rural Brandon area youths who were responsible for part of the damage to the property.

As the Sun reported yesterday, these five youths were dealt with by police under the Youth Criminal Justice Act and were deferred to the John Howard Society Community Justice Committee in Brandon.

In the pages of newspapers and online, the supper-hour television news, or the morning radio reports, news media help to shed light upon the issues and concerns of the day and in so doing attempt to provide citizens with the news they need to stay informed.

And as part of that duty, the Sun also runs weekly updates from Brandon Crime Stoppers, a program we also sponsor, because we believe it is a valuable tool to help limit and solve criminal acts within our city.

But as the Sun’s motto states, “no man is an island unto himself.” The information that comes out of daily news coverage is only as useful as the public’s willingness to act on that information, as responsible citizens.

For those who chose to provide tips to RCMP to help stop the Criddle-Vale Homestead vandals, we’re glad you stepped up. Justice is never served when good people do nothing.
