Have you heard about Briarpatch magazine? No? Then you are missing out!
As it’s “About” section reads:

How fantastic that we are the home to a (self-proclaimed) “fiercely independant” publication, and have been for the last 37 years! What started out as a humble local initiative now has national distribution and is seen as “… one of Canada’s leading independent voices on issues of social justice and the environment.” Definitely a reason to be a proud Saskie.
