In the course of investigating the WE organization for his feature story, Jaren Kerr approached WE for comment 19 days before publication. The organization responded promptly, asking for further clarification, and then offered extensive comment once clarification was provided. CANADALAND had follow-up questions, and extensive response was provided to those as well. We also received documents from WE from their websites and brochures that touched on the subject matter we asked them about, and letters from WE’s lawyers.
In total, WE sent CANADALAND over 100 pages of information. In deciding what parts of it to include in his story, Jaren and his editors looked for responses that directly addressed the questions we asked.
