Year-end Reviews, updated with St. Catharines and Niagara content

EDIT – Reposted form earlier in the week, because it’s longer now, and with some updated local content.  Enjoy!

Because I get a kick out of these things, I’m going to slap together a post with the best year-end reviews from the last few and next few days.  The best ones tend to be the ‘look ahead to 2012’ – for no other reason than they come off reading like satire about two months into the year, regardless of whether they were written that way or not.

As a side-note – if you haven’t, check out a copy of the Economist’s 2012 special issue.  Awesome as always, and a chance to read what some of the leaders have to say about the upcoming year.

Harper isn’t changing Canada.  He’s demonstrating that Canada has changed – NatPost

National Post: Year-in-ideas

I’ll add them as they start rolling in.  I find they’re usually a pretty interesting footnote to history.
