Today Ontario's Minister of Education Gerard Kennedy faces an ultimatum - continue in the Ontario cabinet or step down and announce his bid for the leadership of the federal Liberal Party. Whatever decision he takes, one fact is clear. Kennedy was not one of the frontrunners for the position when it became available. Liberal blogs, including some of the big ones, was one of the first of many in the blogosphere to contribute to the buzz around him. No major newspaper did a profile of him before the blogosphere buzz became too huge to ignore. Are we seeing the true power of blogs in shaping public opinion in Canada being realized at last?
