“Maclean's” journalist “doubles-down on despicable” after tweeting about Humboldt Broncos bus crash

David MenziesMission Specialist

Nora Loreto is a self-described activist and writer based in Quebec City, but I think she might be moonlighting as a ghoul.


In the aftermath of the horrific accident involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team, Loreto tweeted:

“I’m trying not to get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role.”

A significant role in what? The tears, the heartbreak, the sorrow?

Is Loreto trying to suggest the groundswell of grief would be absent if the people on that doomed bus had been black and/or female?

I didn’t think anyone would dare politicize this tragedy, but should have known better.

And, even in the face of the backlash her remark generated, Loreto hasn’t reconsidered and in fact has doubled-down on despicable.

Opium addicted drivers should be a focus of the government….look at the 401 for the alarming number of highway trucks involved with shutting down a major highway. My cousin stopped driving a big rig last year to open a small business, he told me the number of unqualified, high drivers is astounding!

We desperately need a police force that is accountable to the people and not just accountable to them selves… self accountability just doesn’t have the hardware to work .!!

MUTA WEEN commented: “The RCMP have specialized accident analysis teams for fatal accidents and they require time to complete their on site evaluation and then they will no doubt meet with Crown Prosecutors to discuss the appropriate charges.”

By the time RCMP wraps-up its investigation the driver would be comfortably sitting back in punjab/india. The chances are RCMP won’t charge the driver or the owner with any serious violation and they’d be back in business in no time. Driver will come back to Canada & the owner will again be running his trucks with ethnic impunity. The topic has been extensively covered by local punjabi radio, the chances are the driver has already left the country.
Punjabi truckers flaunting canadian traffic laws is nothing new or a secret, any major traffic accident where a semi-trailer truck is involved just read the name of truck driver (if published) and you’ll understand what I mean.

Toxic Anti-Masculinity from those who say there is no gender? Priceless…

Nora see you next Tuesday.

Rebelation got that right, they hate anyone who is not conservative no matter what ethnicity they are. They are the hugest bigots around.

What is so sick about this woman (I hope I didn’t misgender her, nope just kidding) is that she doesn’t even think she said anything disgusting. I agree that Solomon should have taken that caller to task. Race baiting from our politicians is paying off for them. Look at what it brings.

Karan Singh that is so awful. What a horrible thing. That news makes me even sicker at heart.
The Rebel needs to do a story on the trucking industry and the inept and stoned drivers allowed to drive these huge trucks. Specifically this driver. That story needs to get out. But maybe not until later. Too raw right now for family.

Karan, Thanks for that update.
I can hardly wait for Trudeau to trumpet that this is an example of diversity is our strength.

My brother in Calgary told me about a driving school of similar ownership who had a “guaranteed pass” putting the lie to the claims that driving is a privilege and not a right.

I pray that we raise double digit millions upon millions of dollars to assist these families and loved ones.
Loreto’s comments are tremendously awful.

What a Vile racist pig this “journalist” is

“but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role.”

Also playing a significant role in not charging the truck driver who rammed his rig into bus, after jumping the obvious stop sign, is the fact that he is a recently arrived punjabi/sikh immigrant from India and the trucking company he was working for is owned by another punjabi/sikh immigrant who just last year was banned from running any trucking business in NWT for some serious traffic infraction.
It’s an open secret among punjabi community in Canada that vast majority (up to 99%) of punjabi truck drivers are addicted to opium. The chances are that this driver was under the influence of opium when the accident happened.
Apparently, RCMP & Saskatchewan Transportation Ministry are too afraid of being called ‘racist’ to fully investigate this truck driver & let me him go after providing counselling. The cover-up is already in place.

well hope the scumbag is happy. a girl just died from the crash. wonder why the press is so hated. and like canadian media she will get a promotion and raise from her moronic statements.
commented 2018-04-11 19:46:40 -0400
And, out of curiosity, what if the victims were a bus load of black women – but were all Christians that think the same as Diamond and Silk? Then what? Well, we see how fast they stop caring about minorities when it turns our they’re conservatives haven’t we? In fact, it’s one’s first clue they’re simply using minorities as battering rams to bash our society.

Ahh yes, the compassionate left!! The one’s that would make a “kinder / gentler” society.
commented 2018-04-11 19:08:51 -0400
A vile and possibly irretrievable soul. Whatever caused this degree of bitterness and left her so heartless requires some significant degree of reparation miditation and counseling.
commented 2018-04-11 19:08:00 -0400
This left madness is getting worse from one day to another. This Nora Loreto is a total siht head!

Ghoul is good, vulture also works. Her GoFundMe tweeit is also hypocritical because she has monetized victims’ & survivors’ grief, sorrow & loss for readership, she has posted a chart showing her spike in tweets. Does she criticize the taxpayer funded board investigating murdered & missing indigenous women? Where exactly does her insensitivity to human sorrow begin & end? Or does she know no limits?
commented 2018-04-11 17:17:30 -0400
I think her comments were absolutely awful, but I think there needs to be a clarification. Her comment before this was “That is a lot of money,” referring to the GoFundMe page, now over $8 million. This comment, then, said that the “maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness” played a significant role in getting that much money raised. Still a disgusting comment, but I think that should stated.

Vile leftwing sjw’s.

David, maybe we can start a balloon-a-gram for the most callous comments made by SJW’s pretending to be real journalists or writers.
commented 2018-04-11 16:51:39 -0400
Feel sorry for her. She was just released from the mental hospital.
commented 2018-04-11 16:17:09 -0400
Tammie – is she even a woman? I certainly hope she’s not a mother. Maybe she’s a robot. Because she’s certainly had the humanity sucked out of her. In my opinion, she’s a callous and heartless nobody that needs to shut her yap.
commented 2018-04-11 16:17:07 -0400
These two women in the piece can only be described as evil, and should be given as little air time as possible. Let’s forget their names and remember them no more.
commented 2018-04-11 16:08:42 -0400
Sorry. “or” should be “of”.
commented 2018-04-11 16:07:26 -0400
Those weirdos will be just about jubilant when they find out that the truck driver who plowed into the bus was or ethnic origin and so was the company the truck belonged to. In a day and age when the Left wants to do away with freedom of speech because it might be “hate speech”, they sure don’t mind voicing their opinions at the most inappropriate time themselves.

Nora Loreto should admit she was lobotomized! Sick woman!
