The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), on which I watch news from Vancouver and CFL football, bravely and/or blithely provided its list of top ten (living) Canadian poets a while ago. One can only imagine the cacophony of questions and exclamations such a list engendered. Actually, one cannot only imagine because there are 27 comments on the story, to be found at . . .
What are the criteria? Whose list? How can you leave off [ ]? And so forth.
With the cacophony and caveats in mind, then, here's the list (one point being . . . read some poems by these writers if you haven't already):
Skydancer Louise Bernice Halfe
Erin Moure [accent on the last e]
Thanks for the list, CBC.
