Just go, Judy Sgro

Blatchford slices and dices her, and appropriately so, here.

As a woman of colour, the former Liberal MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes, said on Twitter, “The problem is, Judy, that you did not treat the #blackface issue with seriousness or sensitivity.

“You got your ass handed to you and then decided to put out a statement.”

Amen.

The ever-more-loved Trudeau, as of writing this Wednesday, has made no comment on either Sgro’s goofy statement or her apology. He can hardly condemn her for her benevolent read on what he did, and what he so easily forgave in himself.

Sgro is in the right party, at least. She and Trudeau seem immune from shame, when they should be suffused with it.

    It’s a cult.

    Oh no, she’ll hang in there, and be re-elected by her rich, white, racist constituents…what a b*tch.

    Blatch is the Don Cherry of journalism. Said with utmost respect and admiration. We shall lament when she takes her leave. If only she knew how much her words, and what they represent, resonate outside of the GTA, if not “Upper Canada”. Kinda gal I’d like to buy a Nova Scotian craft beer for.

    And yet Groper will probably still win the election. There is a whole lot of stupid going on in this country.

    Hi Warren,

    I’m not sure why you decided to block me on Twitter some time ago. I’m actually a fan of your writing, we’ve never quarrelled and I usually share your opinion. I suspect I got lumped-in with some thread with others, but frankly I’m puzzled. Anyway, I’d love “back in” as it where, if you’d be so inclined.

    Best wishes,

    Pete Landry

    I’ve thought for several years now that both Judy Sgro and Hedy Fry should call it a day.

  9. Ontario John says:

    Great Leader Groper will be visiting a pumpkin patch this morning. See, he is just like us. I wonder if he will be wearing a costume? Everybody will be tuned in to see him talk about Doug Ford and Harper among the pumpkins. Oh sorry I meant his MPs.

    • Montréalaise says:

      Great Leader Groper – that’s a new one! I have been around a long time and have seen a lot of prime ministers, some admired and respected by Canadians, others not so much. But I have never seen any PM earn as many derogatory and mocking nicknames as JT.

  10. Ontario John says:

    So will Groper be wearing orange face in the pumpkin patch this morning? Orange is the new black.

    Everyone knows she’s grooming her daughter to replace her, so maybe they’ll just cross out her first name on the ballot
