Apology To WFCU, Francis


An opinion piece written by Robert Tuomi entitled A Tale Of Two Credit Unions, and originally published 5 June 2017, was the subject of a letter sent to Square Media Group authored by Sharon Strosberg, of Strosberg Sasso Sutts.

Ms Strosberg, acting on behalf of the Windsor Family Credit Union and Eddie Francis, expressed concerns that 5 statements within the opinion piece were “… defamatory and materially false.”

In accordance with the Libel and Slander Act, Square Media Group is taking the appropriate steps to correct the grievance.

Internally, leadership at The Square has researched each of the issues, discovered the forms they took, and has taken corrective action.

The Windsor Square and Square Media Group has edited the article in question and apologizes to the Windsor Family Credit Union and Eddie Francis. Additionally, this apology is being prominently published, without prejudice, on both the front page and in the opinion section.
