Catherine McKenna, the environment minister, asked the public to share their suggestions for how to change the weather.
So a guy named Alan tweeted this practical joke entry in to McKenna's contest for virtue signalling. And he’s so good, McKenna actually retweets it. It said:
“Studies have shown that so called security lighting does not reduce crime… it’s time to put an end to insecurity lights so we can all have a brighter future.”
Can you imagine? “Studies have shown” that lights don’t reduce crime? And you actually retweet this, publish it to the world?
I retweeted McKenna with a laugh, and within minutes her staff deleted her tweet. But we’ve got a copy of it saved.
That’s Catherine McKenna. Studies show she’s as dumb as a bag of hammers.
And, I say this as a transitioning woman myself, she literally will repeat anything you put in front of her without thinking about it. Because it’s 2016, and you’re a racist sexist Islamophobe like Alan if you disagree.
