Why are so few Canadian left-wing blogs popular?

If you’ve ever been interested in reading Canadian political blogs but have no idea where to start, Paulitics compiled a list last month of some of the most popular political blogs in the country. It’s not even close to an authoritative or scientific ranking, but it does give a sense of some of the better-read online writing on politics.
What I don’t get is why so many on the list lean to the right, or at least fail to identify as progressive, small-l liberal or lefty in any way. How are left-wing blogs getting it wrong? Or perhaps more aptly, how are conservative blogs finding large audiences? Is this a comment on the reach of the left in general?
Just wondering.
