The Grant Rant

A journalist's view from Niagara

Well, unless you are Lynn Beyak. Then you would offer a solution so assinine, so disconnected from reality, that you’d be forgiven for thinking she is an alien from another world and her human disguise just happens to be that of a Canadian senator.

You want to stand up for liberal, democratic values? Start by defending the right of someone whose views you dislike to speak at a place that is supposed to be about the free exchange of ideas.

Standing with our fellow Canadians, regardless of their religion, is not just an emotional balm in the face of tragedy. It is the story we need to tell each other, every day, precisely because that is what makes us what we are.
