LGPI 2014 Media Coverage

Blog, Canada, Local Government, Peter McCaffrey (historic), Uncategorized

The Frontier Centre released the 7th Annual Local Government Performance Index last week, and it’s had a great reception across the country.

Unlike in the past, where we released one press release for the whole country, this year we released a separate press release for every province.

This allowed us to create a narrative for journalists about their local area and the cities that their readers care about, while still including some overall information about the report and the performance of the top few cities.

The strategy seems to have paid off really well, as we’ve had a record amount of media coverage, well exceeding previous years.

A summary of the broadcast and print media hits we’ve tracked for the project so far is attached below, online articles and blogs are far too numerous to list.
