I have not been very involved in the Canadian politics blog-o-sphere. One blog that I do follow - and one of the first to feature me in its blogroll - is Canuck Attitude. I was shocked to read that the proprietor of that blog, Bruce McDonald, recently died, apparently taking his own life.
He designed this graphic, signifying, "no surrender" in the fight for gay rights.
My heart goes out to all those who knew Bruce. If you don't know who he is, please read Simon's tribute to him.
