wmtc is finalist in canadian blog awards

Thank you! Wmtc readers have made this blog a finalist in the Canadian Blog Awards, in the Best Progressive Blog category.

Honestly, I didn't think it would get that far. I'm very pleased, and more than a little surprised, to be in the company of such Canadian heavyweights as Calgary Grit, Daveberta, Stageleft and Uncorrected Proofs.

Allan, of course, is a finalist for Best Sports Blog. He tells me this was never in doubt.

I feel as if I've already won an unexpected measure of recognition. I'm not expecting to win the award, and won't be at all disappointed when I don't. But if you did vote for wmtc, thank you very much. Very cool.

Excellent! Congratulations! I hope my fellow Canadian readers have actually clicked on to some of your links to the better progressive sites in the US and continue to read them. Then they'd know both the scope of what BushCo. is really doing down there and how a rational opposition needs to be noisy. Don't ever think that "free-market" zealots and fundies will somehow play nice cuz they're Canadian.
