If you're looking for somebody new to follow in the new year I'd highly recommend you add The Canadian Design Resource to your list.
They consistently provide a dose of true patriot design sure to interest historians, pop culture buffs, artists, hosers, yanks, and anyone else with an appreciation for the "well made." Do yourself a favour and check 'em out.
Here's a list of some of my faves from them recently:
I saw this installation by artist Brian Jungen when at the AGO last spring and really quite appreciated it.
Wicked-awesome mini pre-fab homes from sustain.ca
North American Remix Flag
We're Drowing in Plastic
Some pretty rad, if not a little contentious, street art/advertising found in Toronto.
Milli Vanilli Boots
Probably not technically a pun - but along the same lines. These boots are Fab.
Sonny Assu's work deserves more props.
Numbers of Canada pin set
Absolutely Rad. 99.
