Mike Doherty published a piece in The Toronto Star yesterday called “CanLit at a crossroads: Four writers on the state of our country’s literature,” and Steve Paikin (@spaikin) held a roundtable on The Agenda (@TheAgenda) titled “Whose CanLit is it Anyway?” They are, respectively, a good read and viewing.
