Who built thisTrevor May (Vancouver, BC) @Canadaka
Politwitter was created from scratch by myself, Trevor May. I am a super patriotic Canadian and have a keen interest in Canadian politics. I created a website called "Canada Kicks Ass" in the late 90's which has grown into a large & active Canadian news, content & forums community. I have since expanded the CKA Network to include several sites focused on Canadian conent.
CKA or "Canada Kicks Ass"
CKA is Canadian news, content & forums that promote Canadian patriotism, sovereignty and democracy. The CKA forums are the most active & largest non-partisan Canadian forums online. CKA also includes content like, jokes, editorials, videos, pictures, reviews, biographies, sports, weather, quotes, maps and much more!
Blogging Canadians is a collection of political blogs by Canadians. Unlike other blog groups this site is not branded under one party instead it encompasses bloggers from all political views into different channels.
