A Trost Protester At Charter Day

I popped by the Celebration of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms Day festivities at Victoria Park over the lunch hour and met this protester who I took a picture of for the blog. What she says, except that I don’t have a uterus for Brad Trost to keep his hands off of. That’s fine, he can keep his hands of what parts I do have. (You’ve been following this story, right?)

I hung around for two short talks, Emily Eaton’s on censoring the left (excellent!) and Susana Deranger’s on environmentalism (really good, although terms like Mother Earth make me uncomfortable. I like my environmentalism without mysticism). A good event with maybe 40 people or so. Beautiful day for it, too. Organizers should do it again next year.

  1. Perhaps I can exercise my freedom of speech and opinion and object strenuously to the use of the word “cunty” in a previous post.

  2. Strenuous objection recorded. I hadn’t noticed until you mentioned it (blog reading is yet another thing I’ve fallen behind on).

    The C-word seems to be making a comeback. I’ll keep it out of the paper but if our writers want to use it on the blog they can, as long as they keep it out of the headline and tag fields. Commentators can condemn or praise as they like.

    Comments are open on Dan MacRae’s post. Critics can tell him what they think of his potty-mouth here.

  3. To be bugged enuf by political correctness into being provoked to use offensive/hateful words like, oh, “r*tarded” for instance, is kind of a mental illness itself. Perfectly good and funny and smart people get by everyday being good and funny and smart without words such as these even crossing their minds. I think they’re called “mature” people, possibly “well-adjusted”, “respected”, “liked”, and above all, “successful” (tho, success not necessarily guaranteed).

  4. Mothers of Invention
    I Mother Earth
    Mother Mother

    There must be more.

    The also loved Mothership that resides on Broad St.

  5. Barb: I don’t have a policy on the N-word. I don’t use it personally. I usually make decisions on controversial word usage on a case-by-case basis.
