Boreal Citizen will be taking some time off over the summer (unless, of course, something really important happens and I can’t keep my fingers away from the keyboard!). In the meantime, here is a quick shout-out to some of my lastest favourite blogs and websites. They’re a great source of information (and inspiration) on a wide range of topics (Canadian politics, climate change, urban homesteading, etc.). But there is so much more out there–if you have any good sites to add, please post them in the comments section!
350orbust.com A must-read, Canadian source of up-to-date information on climate change and other topics.
earthgauge.ca The companion site to Earthguage Radio (based out of Ottawa), produced by environmental journalist and broadcaster Mark Brooks. Check out some of the interviews!
huffingtonpost.ca I used to get my news from the CBC , but now the Huffington Post makes them look so stuffy! Besides, Rex Murphy was always yelling at me.
Campaign to Build ‘One Big Campaign’ This is a Facebook page (sorry if you’re not an fb-er, but now you’ve got a good reason to join!). The next federal election could be the most important one in Canadian history, so some folks are getting an early start.
yesmagazine.org A refreshing change from bad news stories, light-years ahead Yes! Magazine focuses on primarily on solutions to the myriad environmental, political and social problems we are now facing.
transitionculture.org If you want to learn more about Transition Towns (i.e., transitioning from oil dependence to local resilience), Rob Hopkins’ blog is a great place to begin.
gardenofeatingblog.blogspot.ca I just discovered this blog but already I’m hooked! Eve Fox focuses on “the growing, producing, procuring, cooking, and eating of food” and includes plenty of beautiful photographs.
Have a great summer!
