With its marine mammal style title, The Walrus magazine has been gracing Canadian newsstands and the web since September 2003. Their mission is to publish works by writers from Canada and elsewhere who are "curious about the world." Their homepage is visually stimulating and easy to navigate, and first-time visitors may wish to look over their various thematic sections to get a sense of the magazine's general tone and perspective. Some recently published pieces include "Grounded", which imagines a world without air travel and "Tripping on the Trans-Can", which is a collection of quotes and photos from journalists, policymakers and participants involved in the "youthful invasion" of the early 1970s when some 50,000 Canadian youths "bummed" across the country.
