Huffington said HuffPost Canada, which is located at huffingtonpost.ca, will feature Canadian politics and business, Canadian issues and perspectives and bloggers "sharing their opinions on all things Canadian."
"Everything from the country's new Conservative Party majority to the playoff chances of the Vancouver Canucks," Huffington said.
