Well, we've almost made it to the end of 2016. And boy, was it one for the record books. At rabble.ca, we followed the events from a turbulent year and covered the issues that matter to progressives.
Make no mistake. It was a challenging year for progressives and everyone working for a better world. There was a lot in 2016 to break our hearts, test our resolve -- even turn our understanding of the world as we know it upside down. Fortunately, rabble's columnists were there, every step of the way, to bring perspective to everything -- the good, the bad, and the dumpster fire -- that happened in 2016. Here, we look back at the year that was through the eyes of our columnists, who brought their collective wisdom and insight to the year's events. From the fight against C-51, to climate justice, to electoral reform, to (shudder) the rise of Trump, rabble.ca columnists examined the issues that mattered to you.

It has been quite a year together hasn't it?
In 2015, rabble headlines were dominated by climate change activism, the niqab controversy, immigration and refugee protests, Truth and Reconciliation critques and, oh yes, the 2015 federal election.
It was a year of progressive insights and analysis from rabble.ca columnists! In 2014, our columnists spoke out about a range of issues in Canada, including labour struggles, abortion rights, climate justice, decolonization, privacy, politics and much, much more. Here, we review the year in columns and highlight some of our favourites from each month. For a complete selection of our columns, check out our columns section!
