Hello again, and welcome to another edition of the rabble.ca weekly blog roundup!

This week we welcome new blogger âpihtawikosisân to the rabble.ca blogs and add a quick reminder that the Babble Book Club discussion with Lynn Coady is coming up fast (March 4!) and there is still time to grab a copy of The Antagonist after the roundup and come and join the discussion!

So join us as our lovely bloggers go through the motions of the Drummond report, the American recession, worker injustices and, sigh, Stephen Harper and his political tactics and then finish it off with a little Lynn Coady!

Happy reading!
