Oshawa councillor slammed for charity drag show

The article reads like hate speech to me. So who gives this homophobe a bully pulpit?  The publisher should be targeted for some education about homophobia and its effect on people.


Holy crap.  Did you take a look at the paper itself?  It looks like it was laid out, written, and edited by junior elementary students!  What kind of circulation does that rag have, anyhow?  I see that they actually charge for it.  I can't imagine who would pay.

The story, of course, is complete homophobic crap.

Pretty gross homophobia in that article. With a dash of racism and sexism for extra flavouring.

You just said a mouthful there, mister.

oldgoat, please go to your city council and fix this!


Lived in the 'shwa for 25 years now, and have never heard of this publication.  The main local paper is "Oshawa This Week", part of the Metroland Media family of forgettable drek.  It's a sad little Tory rag which gets by by being unremittingly boringly inoffensive.  They'd never print this as long as there was a picture of a golden retriever catching a frisbee to run.


I think this is something that get's distributed for free on an irregular basis that's mainly a vehichle for cheap advertising.
