We publish “letters to the editor” on this portion of our site. If you select either, “Updates” above, or “Recent Posts” to the right, you will go to the most recent post. If you would like to subscribe to any “update feeds”, the links can be found in any navigation menu. LiveWord.ca is an example of how social media can help you connect and publish information from your perspective or an opposing perspective, together within your own “site” environment and create your own mini-hub aplenty. This way your visitors and readers know more about you and your cause/mission/etc.
Please note that we have recently begun removing all tracking and referral codes to several social media outlets. This will, unfortunately, end some comments and threads that were being carried outside the site. While we do have additional scripts included, that may be able to track your data, to share our posts and pages you may elect to disable all external scripts through your browsers interface as they are only enhancements and will not affect core functionality.

All governments can benefit from increased scrutiny by the world community, as well as their own people. We believe this scrutiny requires information. Historically that information has been costly – in terms of human life and human rights. But with technological advances – the internet, and cryptography – the risks of conveying important information can be lowered.
