Phil has been re-working his blogroll and I was most happy to see that Tim Challies and Michael Haykin are representing Canada with distinction.
If there are other Canadians up there, I just don't know who they are!
It may not seem like such a big deal to you if you don't live here - but California has a larger population than all of Canada! It is easy to be forgotten. I think that is one of the beauties of the web - it puts the world on an equal footing (assuming you live somewhere that you can actually access a computer!)
