The Toronto Star published 403 print corrections this year, Star public editor Kathy English reported.

About a quarter of the corrections were “preventable errors” related to identifying people, English wrote. The Star also published 582 corrections to “web-only content.” about double last year’s count (280).

“That increase is largely a result of increased efforts by the newsroom to report real-time online corrections to the public editor’s office and our own increased efforts to record those corrections as they occur,” she wrote.
