There is a blog for any topic you can think of. For example, the MediaSmarts blog is a place for dialogue on media issues. The Canadian Journalism Project blog deals with journalism and Everybody Likes Sandwiches is a popular Canadian food blog.
Queer people have been producing their own print media as far back as 1950, when the Mattachine Society, one of the first queer activist organizations, began distributing pamphlets calling for revolt and demanding human rights. Most major cities in Canada and the U.S. have groups that publish and distribute small run “weeklies” or zines on queer issues and activism – usually available for free at queer-friendly businesses or alongside alternative weeklies such as Exclaim!, NOW Magazine, or Vue Weekly.
This winter the Olympics return to Canada for the first time since the Calgary games of 1988. For many people, the most vivid memories of that Olympiad are the colourful stories of some of the less accomplished athletes, such as British ski jumper Michael “Eddie the Eagle” Edwards and the members of the Jamaican bobsled team. It's unlikely, though, that there will be any charming underdogs in this year's Olympiad, as the games become more and more the province of professionals.
