Read it on rabble, then talk about it here.
So Derrick O'Keefe will be on babble tomorrow afternoon for the latest installment of "Oh Good Grief, O'Keefe" at a new time as we experiment with finding the best slot to encourage reader participation. Join us tomorrow at 12:00 PM PST/3:00 PM EST to chat with Derrick.
We'll also be starting with a themed discussion: What do you think about rabble.ca's coverage of the Quebec student protests?
As I announced in this thread, Vancouver activist, author and journalist Derrick O'Keefe has just been (re-)hired as rabble.ca's full-time editor. Derrick has suggested coming on babble each week, every Friday, at noon EST (9am PST) to hear babblers' concerns, comments and editorial suggestions--or just to take part in a discussion and see it through to the end.
We value your support, and we want your ongoing input. This week, to help us mark 11 years of rabble, we are asking you to share some ideas. Specifically, we want your help to compile a list of 11 things that rabble has outlasted (in addition to the FTAA).
As some of you may know, rabble.ca editor Cathryn Atkinson left us early this year to pursue other interests. On an aside note, Michelle Gregus, ex-babble intern, has been the reason the site has sparkled since Cathryn's departure. While the site will miss Cathryn's wealth of experience, we're proud to announce that Vancouver-based journalist and activist Derrick O'Keefe will be the next editor of rabble.ca.
Rebecca West have you booted Doc Manderly off the forum?

I attended the rally in Toronto yesterday and came away early with these observations. If you're going to hold a rally, best make sure that you are on time, ready and have real clout in preparedness. Organizers were 1/2 hour late and people were scattered all over trying to figure out if this is the place to be. For all it was worth, a bad assembly just makes for good criticism from the other side.

Hello to anyone I hadn't messaged in my introductory post.
In that first thread, I mentioned I like a bit of the platforms of the Liberals, the NDP, and the Greens. But as I visit each party website and read about their policies, I find it hard to differentiate on more than a few areas of policy.
Given that I am a former libertarian who has since "seen the light" (for lack of a better phrase), I am what you might call a free agent looking for a place to belong. I'd like to get more involved on the left, and thought about joining a party - and the more I read the more I've boiled it down to the NDP or the Green Party.
