Coup d'œil
Blogues sur le hockey au Canada

Canadians are notorious for musing on this country's identity, what aspects of our 'culture' make one Canadian — a question often met with concerned looks (at least when I mutter it to myself on the subway) and not a lot of definitive answers.

My guess is the federal government's website,, was created to help us out in this regard (from the site's 'this is how we do it' file: " aims to engage Canadians in cultural life by providing access to quality Canadian cultural content in both official languages"), and today's lesson in Canadian culture offers a look at "blogues sur le hockey au Canada."

Here's the French run through of what I'm talking about, while an English version is here.

"But be warned — passions and rhetoric can run high so enter at your own risk!"

'Seeing that emotions can sometimes run high, some sites may contain provocative and inappropriate language for children, so parents and sensitive fans should be warned, particularly when accessing fan sites.'

What a disclaimer

How many bilingual, fat-assed, six-figure-salaried bureaucrats did it take to come up with the website? Can we expect a private member's bill calling for the regulation of blogs in the next session of Parliament? I think that's Otto Jelinek in the photo.
