Corrections

We are committed to correcting errors in a transparent and efficient way.

Corrections are made and documented for errors of fact, not misspellings, typos, or broken links. When we make a correction, we’ll communicate it in plain English. All corrections will be posted at taprootedmonton.ca/corrections and at the bottom of the article that was corrected.

Information that was accurate at the time of publication but which is no longer accurate does not necessarily constitute an error. New information or clarifications are generally treated as updates, rather than corrections.

We encourage all readers to alert us to corrections via our website at taprootedmonton.ca/corrections or using the story tools found on each article page.

  • 11-August-2017: Infill fills a need, but at a cost – An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) does not insure infill property. Lenders typically require insurance through the CMHC for down payments of less than 20%. For homeowners that have smaller down-payments, the maximum purchase price or as-improved property value must be below $1,000,000 in order to qualify for CMHC insurance. Also, the word ‘developer’ has been replaced with the word ‘builder’ in some instances to better reflect the roles of those involved.
  • 05-December-2016: How to stop discounting pedestrian deaths – An earlier version of this story said Vision Zero’s goal is zero deaths or serious injuries on the road by 2020. In fact, Vision Zero is part of the city’s road safety strategy until 2020, but there is no set end date on achieving zero deaths or serious injuries (though sooner is better than later.)
