We at The Runner value maintaining the integrity of the newsmagazine that we work so hard on. To do this we must remain as transparent as possible, since you, the student population, are the only reason we are here.
Recently we’ve had to invite the KSA to come in and temporarily overtake the operations end of things at the paper.
This was not an easy decision to make, but in the end the KSA has a lot of experience dealing with the financials of a not-for-profit organization–which we are– and it’s their experience we need to draw upon.
By asking for the KSA’s help we are able to concentrate on what we do best: putting out papers.
One thing I’d like to make very clear is that this will not affect the subject matter that The Runner chooses to publish.
The KSA has been given no power over editorial content and the paper will continue to be unbiased.
By building a strong foundation for this very young paper, we are hoping to create something that Kwantlen students can enjoy and be a part of for years to come.
