John Laschinger is a nice veteran campaigner
Monday, September 26th, 2016

…but he’s kind of totally full of crap. Just saw a lonely copy of his new book in Indigo. I won’t bore you with all the details – it’s long ago, life goes on, etc. – but his book contains some unmitigated bullshit. Including, inter alia, that he and the Chow campaign decided to mutually “part ways” with me. 

Um, no.  I parted ways with them.

When Olivia Chow lied, and told a disbelieving Toronto media she didn’t really know me, that I was just one of “thousands of volunteers,” blah blah blah, I decided to quit. But Laschinger repeatedly refused to accept my resignation from Chow’s campaign, by email, text and voicemail. Below is part of just one email exchange in which (a) I tell him I’m quitting and (b) he implores me not to.  Not at all the impression he tries to give his readers in his little book, that’s for sure.

Anyway.  Whatever. My opinion came to be that Chow was a lousy candidate, and that a really lousy job was done running her campaign. But the fact is that we didn’t “part ways.”

I quit.



My take on the debates
Sunday, September 25th, 2016

In today’s Sun:

• Warren Kinsella (Daisy Consulting Group) 

“I think Trump has the advantage. 

“He was created by TV, and made famous by TV. He understands TV better than just about any politician around. 

“Hillary needs to take him very, very seriously. If she gets down in the muck, she risks looking unpresidential. But if she doesn’t respond to some of his low blows, he will win the war of the clips. 

“I prepared plenty of leaders for TV debates, but never a debate with stakes as high as this one — and never with the traditional rulebook being so irrelevant. 

“It’s going to be the hottest show on TV this season.”

Canada detains children
Sunday, September 25th, 2016

This is extraordinary and horrifying. I am astonished by this.

If you object to Canada placing children, inter alia, in solitary confinement, contact your Member of Parliament here. And contact the CBSA, who are detaining children, here.

Ahmad Rahami
Sunday, September 25th, 2016

As a rule, I don’t ever name terrorists, mass murderers and their ilk. They don’t deserve the recognition they seek. 

But this New York Times front-page profile of the Chelsea bomber is worth your attention. What struck me – having written this book, and having written this one, coming out in the next few months –  I was struck by how much Rahami reminded me of the dozens of neo-Nazi skinheads I knew and interviewed over the years. 

He, like them:

  • fought all the time with his family, or came from a broken one
  • was disinterested in school
  • had troubled relationships with the opposite sex, often involving domestic violence 
  • had regular run-ins with the law
  • initially was enthusiastic about the society he would later pledge to destroy 

The change – the transformation from unremarkable loser to front-page-news killer – always, always comes about in the same way: the young man somehow comes under the influence of an older man, who gives him a credo, a uniform, a brotherhood and a mission. 

And then, like all converts, all zealots, he starts to make up for lost time.

Moving apology 
Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Good on Butts and Telford. Better to not take money in the first place, of course. But this is a big mea culpa.
