Because much online material remains accessible indefinitely, we receive requests to remove stories by audience members who are either principals in stories, or are affected by them.
We generally do not agree to requests to remove published material from our web pages.
Our published content is a matter of public record. To change the content of previously published material alters that record. Altering the record could undermine our credibility and the public's trust in our journalism.
There can be exceptions to this position -- where there are legal or personal safety considerations to the person named.
Requests to remove material should be referred to the Director through National Audience Services
We will update a story when new information becomes available. If you have new information about a story, you can send it, along with the appropriate URL, to CBC Audience Services.
