Bravely standing up to uppity
20: John Tortorella stood up to the embarrassing stunt of disgracing the American national anthem by some athletes protesting police and race grievances while still cashing multi-million dollar pay cheques.
At least it was probably a Luis Vuitton
18: Much loved and respected Dr. Elana Fric Shamji, with fellow physician husband and three beautiful kids, had it all. For a while. Just before Christmas her body was found in a suitcase.
Yep, back to work uncomplainingly filling out all those claims for out-of-town living expenses
13: Sen. Mike Duffy: Amazing what the media and political system is prepared to overlook when it comes to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s alleged payfor-play [sic] deal when you consider how aggressively they went after Duffy’s expenses. But he had the last laugh—acquitted of all 31 phoney charges…. Duffy didn’t bitch and moan but instead went quietly back to work.
And, really, for what we pay them, how can we expect anything more than that?
10: All I hear is unfair complaining about police and street checks and carding…. Coppers do way more good than bad. Way more.
You mean the Charles McVety, who protested the 2008 Darwin exhibit at the ROM and believes cap-and-trade will lead to the one-world government of the Antichrist? That smarty pants?
7: Dr. Charles McVety of Canada Christian College…. They call him names and I call him tough, fair, honest and smart.
Even the way they spell it right is elitist
5: Prof. Jordan Peterson is prepared to risk it all by standing up for common sense. He is a hero for standing up to the political correctness police right inside the academic elitist lair of the Universty [sic] of Toronto.
Or, as they say on French TV, “Qui est ce clown anglais chauve?”
4: Kevin O’Leary…. As they say in reality TV, stay tuned.
As North Park goes, so goes South Park
2: U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has always been a winner and proved it again with his surprise election win that was not a surprise to me. When photographer Mike Peake and I went down to cover his rally in Buffalo we could see the momentum building.
Gosh, even ahead of Mike Duffy
1: There’s only one choice for my Person of the Year 2016: He didn’t live long but his impact was enormous. His name was Kyrie. He was a resident of Toronto for just three weeks. He was taken from his slain mother’s womb after she was ambushed by bullets in a car…. Baby Kyrie you deserved better but being my top person of 2016 is all I can offer….
