I received this email a few minutes ago. I'm so excited about this new Canadian Magazine I had to come straight to my blogspot and post it right away. Note to those who aren't Canadian or politically inclined: Stephen Harper is the Prime Minister of Canada:

About STEPHEN HARPER:
STEPHEN HARPER was started as the first magazine under new funding
guidelines made by the Canadian Periodical Fund. We believe that the
best response to these new guidelines is to try to produce a literary
journal streamlined enough to meet the new realities of today's
publishing industry. STEPHEN HARPER has an official subscription base
of 413 each MP and senator in the Canadian government is a
subscriber, including our namesake! As well, STEPHEN HARPER will be
starting a list of unsubscribers (the SH! list) of people not quite
lucky enough to be members of Canada's own government, but who still
wish to receive the light of STEPHEN HARPER into their heart.
I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution.
Women need not always keep their mouths shut and their wombs open.
(Perhaps I should add that the Government of Canada has decided to limit funding to literary journals without large subscribers...thus effectively dealing a death blow to the very few such journals still extant in the Great White North.)
