Canadian Freethinker launched

A group of independent-minded folk have launched a new, bimonthly magazine called the Canadian Freethinker. It brings together content that was previously only available in a couple of newsletters. The inaugural issue is dated March/April, 2007. A single copy is $5.50, an annual subscription (6 issues) is $30. No word on what circulation is expected or whether advertising will be carried.

The magazine is a joint venture of the Society of Ontario Freethinkers and the Freethought Association of Canada (an organization formerly called the Toronto Secular Alliance) and is published by Keltoi Publishing of Elmira, Ontario. The magazine's avowed aim is "to give voice to all freethinkers–atheists, agnostics, humanists, skeptics and transhumanists–in discussing issues of civil and human rights, and promoting events for freethought groups."

The first issue contains a feature on freethinker Alexander Graham Bell, and articles about secular activism in Canada and on eliminating the Lord's Prayer from civic council meetings.
