“Stupid, hateful people ‘posting’ in the anonymity of a bathroom stall are not going to be caught. (Unless Lucy Warman is hanging around enticing them to write nasty things.) Instead, on the logic of the HRC, the arena might well be subject to a complaint for ‘publishing’ this vile little screed. Or, at least, for not getting in there with the SOS pad and eliminating it. (Something Warren could have done himself or asked the janitor to do.)
“What the HRC effectively does is give citizens — Warren, myself, you — the easy out when we see or hear offensive expression: we call the government.”
With all due respect to my commrade in arms Jay Currie, I believe he is missing the key point of this entire story, which is:
Jesus in a rainhat! Warren Kinsella is taking pictures of graffiti in public washrooms for &*$#’s sake!!
Seriously, what do these pictures prove besides:
a) crazy men shit, and
b) Warren needs a life?
Is there, like, some connection between this graffiti and that concentration camp they’re building on the old Varsity Stadium site?
What? Nobody’s building a concentration camp in downtown Toronto?!
It’s been how long since the Christie Pits riots? Wow, that long, eh…?
This would be like blaming Orville Wright for 9/11 — except that 9/11 actually happened.
