Andrew Potter, Macleans:
“So Sun Media is all upset with the Liberals because private citizen Ian Davey called it a newspaper chain for people who can’t read”
Kady O’Malley, CBC:
@kady ..remind me, wasn’t ian davey let go?
Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff’s former chief of staff Ian Davey went out of his way to slag readers of the Toronto Sun during an interview on CTV’s Question Period:
“It was once said about the Toronto Sun that it’s a newspaper for people who can’t read. “And I think that probably applies to the whole chain.”
Keep in mind that Davey was one of the Liberal poohbahs to go begging Iffy to leave the US and come rescue Canada from the evil grips of Stephen Harper and is also the son of Keith Davey who was known as the Liberal’s Rainmaker. (see story here)
Oh the irony of the CBC refusing to abide by requests for information from the Office of the Information Commissioner but happily made public Afghan military files. You’ll remember when the CBC gleefully asked its readers to help go through 2,600 pages of Afghan detainee documents which it posted on-line here.
Now when the CBC has been told by the Office of the Information Commissioner to produce its own internal documents, it is fighting that order tooth and nail.
“Lawyers for the commissioner claim the CBC has invented its own interpretation of what does and does not fall under the federal law” (see here)
In what political bizarro world does it make sense for an opposition foreign affairs critic from Toronto to be in Montreal talking about how he supports government-funded arenas? (see here)
