The CollingwoodToday newsroom tackles many different stories every day, especially when so much is happening in the community.
Sometimes, stories can get lost in the noise.
I thought I'd remind you of a few of the stories you might have missed this week.
Freelance reporter Maddie Johnson wrote this piece about Tyler McGregor, captain of Canada's sledge hockey team, completing an impressive physical feat in memory of Terry Fox. McGregor was working toward an NHL career when cancer left him with one leg, he looked to Fox for inspiration and honoured Fox's legacy by raising nearly $30,000 for his charity.
This story by Jennifer Golletz is a rare, early notice of a municipal land purchase for a site that, one day, is slated to become a public facility. The property was also purchased with debt money. So this is a story that will continue for many years for different reasons.
Reporter Jessica Owen writes a weekly question-and-answer style interview called People of Collingwood. This week's was all about Kelly Hastings, a long-time hockey coach whose volunteer efforts are well-known in Collingwood.
This is the latest in an ongoing store of Collingwood's government working to change hate speech laws at a national level. The work is related to citizens calling on town hall to have property owners remove Confederate flags that are visible from the street. Since there's no legislation to support forceful removal of the flag, town staff and council are lobbying for changes to the laws.
