Beginning September, youll notice significant changes to our web sites. Well become bigger and better, with Globaltv.com, tvforbc.com, chektv.com and our Canadian daily newspaper sites all merging to become part of the canada.com national network.Since they went online a couple of years ago, The Guardian has contributed a reliable local Island news flow to the web. Their website will never win design awards, but it’s functional and, especially after a recent redesign, loads quickly. Their website’s front page does what it’s supposed to do: delivers the top 4 or 5 local stories in a concise, easy to follow format.
I fear that once The Guardian’s content gets reduced to being the “Charlottetown” click off the Big CanWest Site, these qualities will disappear. If the design of the existing CanWest Site is any indication, I don’t hold out great hopes for the future.
