Awesome! Are you listening Vancouver Sun, Vancouver Province and Globe and Mail (no links because their websites s*c ; the Globe and Mail has a ridiculous registration required policy to access their site and really bad websites in the case of the Sun and Province)? If it's good enough for Le Monde, it ought to be good enough for Canadian papers too!
Le Monde is one of the first newspaper in the World to offer blogs to their readers, under the Le Monde brand. They have also published a ranking of the 10 top blogs, mixing their journalists blogs and their readers blogs, showing them at the same level, based on blog readers recommendations.
