New look, more content highlight updated website
With more news, more photos and more content, NorthernLife.ca continues our tradition of bringing you the best in local news, sports and entertainment — in a more attractive, modern and easier-to-navigate format. Perhaps the first thing you'll notice about the new website is the sheer number of stories — 23 choices in all — that appear when you load the page.
The world of media continues its rapid evolution and NorthernLife.ca is committed to evolving right alongside, keeping abreast of the latest in technology in terms of video news, up-to-second reader polls and more in order to bring you the best, most comprehensive news experience we can.
We appreciate the expertise and talents of Frank Chartrand and his team at Bureau Group for their invaluable assistance in designing the new look of NorthernLife.ca.
You'll continue to find second-to-none coverage of city news and politics, a wide range of local sports and features on local athletes and coaches, lifestyle and entertainment stories that will amuse, engage or inform you, business news concerning Northern Ontario's prime industries and columns from some of the city's best thinkers.
But we are also bringing you something new, something we've never offered you before — the biggest stories from across Canada. No longer will you have to visit NorthernLife.ca for local content and another website for national news.
Thanks to a new relationship with the Canadian Press, NorthernLife.ca will bring you the latest in breaking and national news from one of the world's most respected wire news services. This gives us the ability to bring you the best in local and national content — on your computer at work, at home, on your phone or on your tablet.
NorthernLife.ca has always brought you a regular poll on our homepage, but a new feature of the updated website gives us the fantastic ability to present a poll with individual stories. Look for that on the bottom of stories and share your opinion.
What's more, come to NorthernLife.ca for the next day's weather forecast and the latest in road closures and delays in the city, around the North and on the major highways Sudburians travel everyday.
I invite you to tour the new website, poke into all the nooks and crannies. We want to hear from you. Your thoughts, impressions and feedback is important to make NorthernLife.ca — your community news website — as useful and informative as it can be.
Take care, enjoy your visit and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
