EQ Corrections – April 2017

Our monthly archive of things we updated, changed and corrected.

Written by Jeff Samsonow

This is a listing of all items we updated through the month of April 2017. The changes could include updated details added to a story after it was published, a correction or other notable alterations we want be transparent about. The changes are also noted on the original stories and posts.

Edmonton Headlines – Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Change: We changed the term “gender-based budgeting” to “gender-based analysis” (GBA) in reference to the City considering changes to how it looks at new plans and proposals.

Reason: While gender-based budgeting is a form of, or a part of, a government or organization’s GBA it’s more accurate in this case to call it gender-based analysis. We we weren’t talking about the City budget and this change could reach outside of budgeting discussions.

Indigenous Learning at the Library – Saturday, April 8, 2017

Change: We updated a post from March 2017, swapping out details about Elder Wison Bearhead speaking at the Amiskwaciy History Series for his appointment as the EPL’s new Elder in Residence.

Reason: We think the EPL’s Indigenous programming is an excellent use of the library’s resources and took advantage of the Elder in Residence announcement to refresh our original post with less time sensitive information.

Renewing Community – Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Change: We re-worded a section in the first story insert (the blue drop-down boxes) to improve clarity around sidewalk curb cuts and work to connect more sidewalks.

Reasons: We had previously characterized sidewalk curb cuts and sidewalk connectivity as “extras” of the regular Neighbourhood Renewal process, in an effort to distinguish what might be new to the look of a neighbourhood after construction. Since both are standard parts of the Renewal process we adjusted the wording to better reflect that. We didn’t want anyone to think those wouldn’t be coming to their neighbourhoods as part of the work.

If you spot an error or have questions about a detail in any of our content, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
