The Winnipeg RAG Review was started in March 2011 as a result of The Analyst's increasing frustration with the turn of events and media coverage of politics in this province. It seemed that austerity was on it's way in along with a PC Majority, proselytizers like Youth For Christ were receiving funding while effective anti-gang programs were being cut, Harper was in office (as he will be until at least 2015), and the Winnipeg Sun was spouting vile propaganda coming up to the 2011 Provincial election. Events in this province turned out better than the absolute worst case scenario, but the media narrative was often backwards as were many players in the political process. This blog, thus, continued on its mission to provide a progressive antidote to the fashionable nonsense in the public discourse of this city, this province, and this country.
