Going live with Dominion 3.0

Well, the brand new Dominion site is online, after a lot of time and a few headaches. We've successfully (with a little help from friends) moved over ever one of the old entries. Thanks to the flexibility of Drupal, our new content management system, all the old urls still refer to the same articles.

The weblog archives didn't make it into the new system, but we didn't break any of the links, and you can still look at articles as they used to look on the old site in the archives.

Homeless Action Strike, other news

From the Lower End of Ottawa's Carrot Patch

The Ottawa edition of the Dominion, which is distributed by the poor and homeless, has been very well received by police, city officials, and the Sparks Street and Byward Market authorities, as well as by the media and the general public.

On the Need for a Street Newspaper in Ottawa

During a protest that I conducted on Rideau Street in the summer of 2002, I noticed some very disturbing things about the homeless population. The vast majority were youth, and almost all the long time street people that I had met over the years were nowhere to be seen. And despite the massive cuts to the welfare system, I noticed that the number of homeless persons had remained constant. This did not make any sense. I knew by experience that the vast majority of people who were cut off welfare would not have been capable of going to work because of the major barriers to employment.

A letter from the editor

A letter from the editor: Every media organization has a way of deciding what stories are important enough to be news. The editor of the Globe and Mail, Edward Greenspon, has said that "if it happened yesterday, it isn't news."

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
