In a Friday story on Page A3, you advised your readers that seven local workers will lose their jobs with The Daily News.
Out of curiosity I Googled Affinity Express and to my surprise, discovered that while this company is based in Chicago it’s operations are in fact operated from India and the Philippines.
Please explain why we subscribers, who make our living in the forestry sector, should continue to support your newspaper and its use of pulp while you attempt to make financial advantage of off-shoring local jobs.
Very sad that another Canadian company sells out our jobs to foreign countries.
I do hope that your firm will make every effort to find your displaced workers new jobs. Jobs that enable them to stay in Kamloops and continue to contribute to the local economy.
Publisher’s note: I agree the report was incomplete. Our staff were told that the company was headquartered in Chicago with production facilities in the Philippines and India but this was not included in the article. I take responsibility for this omission and apologize to our readers.
