If one more smug BCer *cough* rabble's west coast people *cough* smugly talks about the smug cherry blossoms and their smug blooming or the beautiful smug biking in the warm smug weather, I'm gonna scream.

We get it : You live in the Pacific Northwest where winter ceases to exist and snow is this funny little thing you tell hushed stories while reminiscing about your non-west coast lives. Great.

But you know what my fellow central and east coast pals? Don't let it get you down. It's February. And what other time should it be cold? And, stouts, whiskey and apple cider taste better in the cold. Snowball fights, sledding and skating are more fun in the winter. And let us not forget, you can make candy in the snow. Candy.

So central and east coast friends, let us all look ahead to July when those smug BCers are on month five of their endless grey, rainy days and we're all lounging on patios and beaches in the balmy summer sun, reminiscing about the awesome candy we ate while skating and then getting a stout.

Well played east coast friends, well played.

But, oh right. It's Feel Good Friday. Here's some feel good stuff. For everyone.


  • Okay I know it's awful and really snowy, but this happened and it makes it all worth it.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
