WHAT IT GOING ON?
Hey, we have all been there. It is the end of term and you have not paid attention to politics in Canada at all. Here are a few of my favorites to get you up to date. If all fails, Wikipedia is the answer…
- Why Stop Harper
- I am not that far through, but the topics are pretty on point. Only criticism is the lack of links leading to exact quotes or if one wanted to know more information
- CBC Canada Votes 2011
- Comprised of the latest news items on the federal candidates, the Political Compass that lets a user see which party her politics lines up with, and a Reality Check feature that checks the validity of candidate promises
- A Canadian news site where you can find campaign coverage and news items
- The Tyee
- A news site that focuses on politics, arts, culture in B.C. Check out the post “Contemplating the Unthinkable Harper Majority“
That’s all I can think of right now. Now pardon me while I try to get up to date with everything. Wish me luck…
