Presenting the award for Best Canadian Blog of 2008 are Santa Claus (actually CBA Operator Saskboy dressed up, believe it or not) and Dani’s friendly Tim Horton’s employee from Ottawa:

Total votes: 4243

And for a second year in a row, a knitting blog reigns supreme in the Canadian Blog Awards! It’s hard to argue that it’s the right choice, knitters are people who carry needles! And apparently it’s hard to compete with their blogs too.

A hearty, “Well done!” to all of this year’s participants in the Canadian Blog Awards, and from everyone else running the CBAs this year including Raphael and Jonathan, NBC Dipper and other volunteers, have a happy 2009. See you next year!

    It’s actually hard to argue it’s the right choice simply because it’s an extremely well written blog that has drawn a large, global audience. You don’t generate this kind of support without having something great to offer.

  2. Blue Menu says:

    I’m not surprised that a knitting blog won. After all, it’s not hard to imagine its readership sitting at home all day with plenty of time to write in with votes. Unlike our sports readership, who are primarily unemployed single men who surf the web in their parents’ basement…. Uhh, I was going somewhere with this, wasn’t I?

    detection systems or general research analysers requires accurate, reliable calibration gases
    coming from a responsive and knowledgeable dealer.

    technique of ensuring your analysis or even detection system is
    free from drift and performs to the first manufacturer’s specifications.

    compact 2 and 8 litre models which are great for on-site work
    to the substantial 50 litre cylinders that provide ample
    gas capacity for computerized calibration protocols.
    In addition to this, standardized gases are available in our least expensive nonrefillable (disposable) cylinder selections, providing smaller quantities
    regarding gas without the ongoing associated with rental arrangements
    for infrequent research demands or feature checking of portable fuel detectors.

    pick the best option for your demands.
