'Citizen journalism' goes (semi) pro

It began in the U.S. in April of last year and last week launched a Canadian edition to cover Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. (They also offer a national edition, and plan to add more Canadian cities.) It's the most up-close, well-funded look Canadians have had yet at one form of the "citizen journalism" that media experts view as a core component of the future of news.

The online publication is The Examiner, owned by Clarity Digital Group.
