In fall of 2012, I contributed to a pilot interactive program run by the Globe and Mail, one of Canada’s leading daily newspapers. Since Canadians are often unwittingly affected by American politics, G&M wanted to do some in-depth coverage of the election and the key issues, but from a Canadian perspective. I joined a handful of other Canadians living and working in the US, and we gave our input each week on developing news.
Oh, and I got a spread in the newspaper, which is pretty dang cool.
