Comment Policy

You are solely responsible for the content you post. The Seeker is not responsible for the content  included in the comments posted by its users. We do not and cannot review all user content posted on theseeker.ca. However, we have the right (but not the obligation) to review, screen, delete, edit and/or move any content posted on theseeker.ca.

We are using the Facebook commenting system, so you will be able to comment only if you have a facebook account.

To promote healthy discussions, comments are posted immediately, without being moderated in advance.

However, we reserve the right to disallow commenting on crime and court stories. Our editors will control which stories are open for comments and which are not.

Other users can flag your posts if they think you have crossed the line. If a comment is flagged, our editors will take a look and decide whether to keep it or remove it.

LTE (letters to the editors) are not typically published on their own online.  Because LTEs normally are written in response to something already published and because we have an open comment policy, they can be posted under the articles, in the comment section.  If they do not pertain to anything currently published, they can be sent in for consideration to info@theseeker.ca.

Our editors reserve the right at any time for any reason to edit or delete a post. We also reserve the right to block a user or remove him or her from our system entirely.
