In her Azerbic blog, The Toronto Star‘s Antonia Zerbisias, wrote that the Western Standard is running a writing contest. The prize is $1,000.00, plus getting to see your article published, however–and it’s a big however–there is an entry fee of $50.00.

Given the politics of the Western Standard, it’s only a matter of time before someone points this out to the regulators.
