Big, popular Canadian blogs?
thinking, perplexed
I need more cancon in my daily reading.

The "A-list" of bloggers approximates the "A-list" of American bloggers, and I want to round out what I'm reading with a Canadian perspective.

And yeah, I read about Canadian current events and culture offline too, but mostly magazines like The Walrus, Geist, and Maisonneuve -- I just felt like I might be missing out on good online Canadiana. Books and magazines I know;
