Our Readers Write
From the Desk of the Circulation Manager
As Circulation Manager I get to see first-hand the responses
of subscribers to Sources and Parliamentary
Names & Numbers (our other publication). Whether
by phone, fax or letter or E-mail, I get to hear what you guys think
about how we're doing. Many of your submissions get posted on the
fridge and bulletin board to be shared with the rest of the staff.
We use your suggestions. So keep those letters, E-mails, phone calls
and faxes coming and we'll keep giving you better service.
Here's just a sampling of what you've had to say:
HURRAH FOR SOURCES!
I have been using an old copy of Sources since Barrie
Zwicker handed them out to our journalism class at Ryerson Polytechnic
What a resource! It's helped me immeasurably in my own work now
as a freelance news correspondent for a couple of small community
I would love to receive an up-dated copy and understand that this
starving journalist does not have to pay. Hurrah!
GLAD TO HELP OUT!
I am writing to inquire if you could send us a copy of your directory
of contacts for reporters for our radio station. CFXU is a small
station, and one sadly lacking in funding, resources, and contacts.
We could greatly use the directory to rebuild our news staff's resources.
SOURCES GOES TO THE MOVIES!
Could you please send me a free copy of Sources. I'm
a journalist, working full-time at CJBQ Radio here in Belleville
where I do morning news. I'm also working on a couple of freelance
video documentary proposals, for which your directory would prove
to be invaluable.
I am delighted to hear that Sources is free to journalists,
and can't wait to take advantage of the book's research-source listings
which, I'm sure, will become indispensable.
DESPERATELY SEEKING SOURCES!
We desperately need a copy of Sources!
I am a full time staff producer at Rogers Community 10 in Niagara
Falls. Sources would be an incredible daily asset
not only to myself but to my other co-workers.

My name is Marie-Paul Rouleau. I'm the announcer-producer of Boréal
Hebdo, a French magazine program broadcast in Northern Québec
by CBC North - Québec for the James Bay and Nunavik regions.
As a "one woman show", I do all the research, writing
& interviewing for my program. I often have to speak to various
people across Canada on different subjects; Sources
would help me find them more quickly. Even though, Boréal
Hebdo is a French program, I often work in English on subjects
related to aboriginal people.
Thanking you in advance for adding my name to your mailing list.

I just thought I'd make a comment on the Sources Web
site - congrats!
I see a lot of Web sites come and go, and everyone is trying to
grab my attention, but I came across your site after reading about
it in Sources. You've done a nice job - it's clean,
crisp, well laid out - but not only that, you've got a damned simple,
easy to understand method of allowing one to search the Sources
directory. Keep up the good work!

Both publications are a boon to my field - public administration!
FROM COAST TO COAST
I'm a journalist working temporarily at Canadian Living writing
freelance medical briefs for the magazine's new health section and
it would make my life so much easier if I had a copy of Sources
by my side. The subjects I write about are spread out from coast
to coast, and I need your help to find them!
MORE, MORE, MORE
Parliamentary Names & Numbers is more current,
more informative and more useful than more-expensive directories,
and it gets significantly better with each edition. The subject
index is a particularly useful and unique feature. Both PNN
and Sources are indispensable references for anyone
involved in research, journalism or advocacy in Canada.

GET TO THE HEAD HONCHOS
PNN is just what an Ottawa-based writer need to cut through
ribbons of bureaucracy in order to get to the head honchos. Thanks.
