Canada Free Press (CFP) is a wingnut "news" and commentary website that appears to be a Canadian version of WorldNutDaily, except somehow even crazier. According to their "about us" page:

Canada Free Press (CFP) is a proudly independent, 24/7 electronic newspaper, updating several times a day, and sometimes every several hours. More than 100 writers and columnists file regularly to CFP from all corners of the globe.

Although we have been posting to the Internet for more than 14 years, on May 15, 2010 CFP celebrated its sixth anniversary as a daily.

Espousing Conservative viewpoints, cornerstone of which contain love of God, love of family, love of country, CFP maintains a loyal and growing readership.[1]

For a Canadian site, they seem to have an odd fetish for American nationalism. They peddle all the wingnuts' usual pseudosciences, such as creationism, global warming denial, and abstinence and abortion-related nonsense. Two of their environment "reporters" are lobbyist Steve Milloy and general crank Alan Caruba, a promoter of Robert W. Felix's brand of insanity as well his own. They also promote birtherism. CFP has also scrubbed a number of columns that apparently went too far even for them. After Tim Ball, one of their favorite sources for commentary on global warming, was sued for libel by two climatologists, they removed the offending material and took down a number of other columns he wrote. Judi McLeod, one of the founding editors, co-authored a brilliantly deranged column implicating a United Nations-backed global warming conspiracy, Harry Reid, and the mob as the perpetrators of 9/11, which was later scrubbed.[2]
