(David Menzies guest hosts while Ezra Levant is covering the Tommy Robinson appeal in the UK...)
Remember when a radio morning man was supposed to be funny and daring and – I kid you not – he was actually supposed to say controversial things?
Well, here's more proof that the days of being politically incorrect on the airwaves are long gone, given the suspension of Winnipeg morning man Dave Wheeler, who had the temerity to utter a harmless observation about the ever-so-precious transgender community.
Here's his offending statement, made when talking about actress Scarlet Johansson being forced to drop out of a film role, in which she'd be playing a fake man:
“People act and pretend to be different things. Kinda like what you’re doing! Really! In the grand scheme of things.”
You know what?
That statement is equal parts clever and funny and, well... true...
NEXT: Anthony Furey, Toronto Sun columnist, comes on to talk about his provocative new piece, claiming that the Trudeau Liberals "are becoming the 'Mean Girls' of Canadian politics."
THEN: Furey's Sun colleague, reporter Joe Warmington, joins me to explore the growing problem of gun violence in Toronto, and what's really causing it.
FINALLY: A clip from Ezra Levant's reporting from London today, where he was covering the Tommy Robinson appeal from inside the courtroom and the streets outside. See all his reports at TommyTrial.com.
Then, as always, your messages!
