The Huffington Post news website has launched its first international incarnation with HuffPost Canada.

In a blog post, co-founder Arianna Huffington said the new site would provide a "turbo-charged, Canada-centric" version of the Huffington Post.

On its first day, the site featured blog posts written by environmental activist David Suzuki, Green Party leader Elizabeth May and Victoria-raised, Oscar-nominated actress Meg Tilly.
