It's American based, CBS is the parent company now.

Which should tell some of the folk here that it's not a Liberal Bastion.
But as Bob says, it's accessed from all over the world, it has had moderators from Israel, the UK, Holland, and some Canadian participation beginning, I think, with myself, an ex-pat American/Canadian. There are a couple of other regular contributors from Canada.

I try to inject some Can-Con (that's Canadian Content folks) periodically, but it rarely goes anywhere. James Denison who doesn't like me, posted a story about the Legionnaire's Disease outbreak in Montreal, claiming it was due to a dirty city. Since he's never been there, I don't know where he got the idea.

As an ex-patriot American who disagrees with the direction the US took under Bush, I've come in for a fair amount of abuse, but I recognize that as the myopia of people who haven't lived anywhere else than the US, and haven't had to cope with learning a different system of government, and learning to appreciate the differences between the US and Canada.

I actually wrote a long piece today called "There's no place like home. I don't mean there's nothing better, I just mean there's no place like it", about being from the Baltimore area originally, and now living the past 28 years in Canada and 4 years in the UK. It took me nearly 10 years to get completely acclimatized (though I still hate the really bitter winters, thank heaven we haven't had many recently). Living in a country is like living with coloured glasses on all the time. You move to another country and eventually the colour changes, and you see new things, and old things in a new way. I'm grateful for the opportunity to see things anew.
