On Saturday night, following an intense 48-hour period in which a debate around cultural appropriation blew up into a larger indictment of the Canadian media establishment, Jonathan Kay resigned from his position as editor-in-chief of The Walrus.
He shared the news with the CBC this morning, which CANADALAND has independently confirmed. Earlier Sunday morning, he posted a pair of cryptic tweets:
