Captain Ed Defends Bloggers North of the 49th

The best bloggers always have the most integrity, such as Ed Morrissey of Captain's Quarters, Glenn Reynolds, Hugh Hewitt, or Michelle Malkin. That's why it comes as no surprise that Captain Ed would speak up in defense of bloggers in Canada who are accused of being wimps.

With the Canadian government rife with scandal, there are few stories 'broken' by bloggers, so the charge goes.

Captain Ed says the Canadian bloggers are doing their job, and it's nice that he defends those of us who are trying to expose the soft underbelly of Leviathan, but we still have a problem.



Canada still has a highly centralized media distribution set-up. Far more than the US. And although there is a pre-dominance of Leftist news outlets in the States, Canada has a Toronto MSM that is gigantic in influence and power for soft Socialism.

Blogs are the best thing to happen to this country in a long time. It is the only medium where ordinary people can have a sense of empowerment for change. "Votes" used to give common people power, but they don't count for anything, especially if you live in the West.

Without votes, Albertans should take up blogs. This is the only way that Albertan's concerns can be raised. The federal MP's we elect never get to govern. So let's think of other alternatives.

What would happen if every Albertan had a blog....?
