The original Saturday Night Live ensemble was called The Not Ready For Primetime Players, and now in 2018, I think that descriptor is best suited for the Ontario NDP.
The latest to make one question the NDP’s vetting process is someone who we at The Rebel have featured, not once, but twice.
The first time we talked about Jill “the Thrill” Andrew was when she went on a tirade against a Toronto Transit Commission ad accusing them of “body shaming” and the second was when she did a Ted Talk railing about what she calls the ongoing “thin epidemic,” and equated “blackness” with “fatness”.
These days, even obesity is about race and on that note, it seems Jill really put her foot in her mouth a couple of years ago in a Facebook post announcing that she would give her “2016 Coon Award” to Toronto’s then black Police Chief, Mark Sanders.
But don’t worry. NDP Leader Andrea Horwath says she has no problem with Jill’s odious language.
How very fitting that Horwath is the leader of Ontario’s Not Ready For Primetime Players!
