We are very close to making a big change at OttawaMatters.com.
Starting now, we have our own brand new comment system.
It will be easier. It will be friendlier. It won’t require you to have a Facebook account.
And, if it works like we hope it will work, it will be a place to have more meaningful conversations about the issues that matter to the community.
OttawaMatters.com brings you breaking news, video, sports and lifestyle stories, but we also bring you commentary on the issues of the day, and provide a forum where our readers can discuss and debate those issues. One thing we’ve heard from you is that what we need is a better way to comment on the site, while still getting the best out of what we have to offer.
Our goal is to build a better comment environment, one where people can debate and disagree in a more respectful climate. You’ll find our comment platform offers a big upgrade with more user reaction features and easier reporting of negative or inappropriate comments.
Signing up is easy. You can create your own, free account in under a minute, and you don’t need a social media account to do it. We just wanted to make it as easy as possible.
News is important, but so is public opinion. Let us help you share yours.
