The Huffington Post news website has launched its first international incarnation with HuffPost Canada.

In a blog post, co-founder Arianna Huffington said the new site would provide a "turbo-charged, Canada-centric" version of the Huffington Post.

On its first day, the site featured blog posts written by environmental activist David Suzuki, Green Party leader Elizabeth May and Victoria-raised, Oscar-nominated actress Meg Tilly.

Huffington said the site would focus on politics and business, while also covering entertainment, sports and community news.

The company plans to launch a U.K. version July 7.

Founded in May 2005, the Huffington Post provides original reporting, content aggregation and a lively community for discussion.

The company was acquired by AOL in February for a reported $315 million (U.S.).
