I ask NDP MP about her allegation of male TV host being sexist – smears me as a “troll”

liu 1

In light of Liberal leader Justin Trudeau tossing two Liberal MPs out of his caucus over allegations from NDP MPs of sexual misconduct (see here) it reminded me when NDP MP Laurin Liu accused a national TV host of being sexist in a Globe and Mail interview (see here).

So I asked Liu about it which elicited this response:


Now, unlike Trudeau I wasn’t betraying anyone’s trust as Liu herself disclosed this in a national newspaper but of course her media protectors quickly came to her defence by retweeting the smear.

This is just the list bigger journalists’ names who publicly attacked me, there were many more:

Ottawa Citizen’s Glen McGregor

National Post’s Matt Gurney

Sun News’ David Akin

Globe and Mail’s Chris Hannay

Macleans’ Paul Wells

Think about that, the first instinct these ‘journalists’ have is to circle the wagon and not only protect Liu by smearing me but also protect the TV host from being uncovered.

But all are surprised Ghomshemi got away with what he is accused of for so long, right?

    One writer recently referred to the media (particularly in Ottawa) as living inside a “gated community”. To them, those outside the gates are all trolls.

    Dean, I noticed Del Mastro’s FB page concerning his allegation about a Press gallery reporter has been taken down – Anything come out of that other than a denial from a staffer?
    Just curious.

    I would expect that kind of behaviour from Lefties….but any self-respecting Conservative, should know better than to protect criminal actions.

    Deny, Deflect and Hide what’s really happening in our society, that is what most journalist frauds are engaging in. A good name for it is the “Rotherham Syndrome”.

      Or just plain Rotten Syndrome…..

      This could really have a few people shaking in their booties…any term that has “sexual” in front of it covers a wide scope.

      I do think Trudeau has jumped the gun on this one, his two MP’s could have more than their careers ruined, their families will also be affected. Apparently Trudeau wants to dump, disown anything that he might have to deal with.
      He disowned the Senate but they’re still Liberals Senators and vote as Liberals.

    The DelMastro case has me going back to the Senate affairs and the PM’s handling of them. Would it not have been better for the PM to say he is not responsible for what happens in the Senate or what his appointees do after they are there. He has now created a real hornets nest with Duffy who is now out to GET Harper and the media will help any way they can. This would be the same media who excoriated Duffy when he got appointed to the Senate.

    Gee if Junior disaster, unfriends anyone else he will be a minority of one (1)
    Please hurry Justin, you are only in the House doing your job about 40-50% of the time.
    I just love the pic of him and Goheshmi snoggin’ BFF
    Now Tom Muclair is all twitchy over Justins latest announcement ?
    Poor Justin it is so hard out there in the grown-up world
    Where is the Radio Star anyway?

  8. Dana Says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Duff work for CTV before he received his Senate appointment, could it be where he developed his “sense of entitlement from?”
