Pipestone Flyer wins editorial award

Writer Chris McKerracher’s ‘Terror in our midst’ impresses judges

The  Pipestone Flyer has been recognized for an excellent editorial that appeared in the paper last year.

Chris McKerracher’s editorial “Terror in our midst” earned second place in the Alberta Weekly Newspaper Association’s 2014 Better Newspapers Competition Awards of Excellence Best Local Editorial category.

McKerracher’s editorial referenced the Parliament Hill shootings last year and questioned some of the response to the shootings.

The awards were announced at the AWNA banquet June 13 in Calgary. The Pipestone Flyer and its parent company Black Press congratulates McKerracher.
