The Hook: Political news, freshly caught

CCPA launches new election blog

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives is launching itself into the B.C. blogosphere.

The Lead-Up, describing itself as “progressive, non-partisan, expert,” promises commentary “on the issues that will -- or should -- define the 2009 provincial election.”

The latest post argues that B.C.’s Liberal government played a role in the current economic crisis.

The Hook will keep an eye out for more blogs about the B.C. election.
