My young friends at the Prince Arthur Herald have being doing a great job. They have been mentioned in the House of Commons, Their articles have been published in the National Post and elsewhere. I am pleased that they are part of the Blogging Tories as well. They have been getting thousands of hits daily!I would love to see this online newspaper spread to university campuses across the country. University papers are usually marxist and very, very statist. The Herald is a breath of fresh air. The Herald is looking for new people from across Canada. I want to see a generation of more conservative journalists come out of this venture. My fellow blogger Kate at SDA says the opposite of diversity is university. By encouraging the Prince Arthur Herald we can help change that. If you are a student or know a student at a Canadian University, and would like to write for the Herald pleas contact the Herald.
For students in Ontario here is a message from my friend Rebecca, who is a Ontario desk editor:
Conservative students and groups often complain about being treated inequitably on campus, or feeling like they are all alone in their convictions. The Prince Arthur Herald, Canada's only center-right national student newspaper, aims to change that by giving conservative students a voice and community that will respect their opinions and stand up for their rights, along with the rights of all Canadians.
Started by a group of predominately McGill students, The PAH in less than two months of operation has received tens of thousands of hits from across Canada. As a result, the editors have decided that a nationally-read newspaper deserves to be written by students from across the nation. As an Ontario Desk Editor, I am recruiting students who are interested in writing articles on politics, current events, campus politics, or other issues that affect conservative students.
Those who control the message, control the debate. Without a friendly media presence that values excellence in communications while addressing the hard issues of our day, conservative students will continue to struggle to be heard and respected on campus.
This is a crucial venture, committed to supporting and nurturing the next generation of Canadian conservatives, while providing valuable media experience for students who may one day become conservative journalists, aides, politicians, and articulate voters.
Ontario Desk Editor,
The Prince Arthur Herald
