I enjoy the often-derided NewsFilter type posts, epecially the comments and links provided in follow-up. These days, Canadian politics has become interesting, but I haven't found a spot on the web where ideas, information and links of MeFi caliber are posted on this subject. Are there any Canadian politics oriented blogs or forums that are worthy?

Try here. There are also many other personal political Canadian blogs at, if you're keen on finding varied individual opinions.

Devoter? It was intended to be a more global political community weblog, from memory.

I second rabble. It's a pretty decent site for Canadian (and International) news (if you are a "left-y").

You can also try THIS Magazine, a lefty magazine (disclosure: I used to work there). From the other side (more or less) of the spectrum, Andrew Coyne has a blog where he posts his National Post column, as well as other political commentary. Plus he has an extensive list of (mostly right-of-centre) Canadian political blogs.

For BC, there's The Tyee. And Paul Wells (writer for Macleans) is publishing a blog.

Response by poster: Awesome. Going to be difficult sorting the wheat from the chaff (that's kinda why I like metafilter.... its a filter). I was hoping to avoid personal blogs in favour of community blogs.

Andrew Coyne used to annoy me to no end as a columnist, but his blog is somewhat better. Didn't see a list on his site. He does draw a fair crowd though.

Northern Polemics is wrapping up and retiring. TaW is personal site, not much activity. Going to take a while to go through all the links over at blogscanada.

Devoter is very, very low on CanCon. Also seems quiet.

Rabble seems groovy. I am going to spend a little time there hoping it won't be too much of an echo chamber.

Thanks folks!!! This is just what I need to keep connected with the goings-on up North whilst I am doing my time in the Excited Flakes.
