    No kidding! Can you imagine how horribly unpleasant it would be to have to deal with this person, day in and day out? I feel sorry for her co-workers, having to always interact with such a miserable and spiteful personality.

    People like this professor are primarily why I associate less and less with progressives these days. It’s not their politics; it’s their demeanour. They are such scolds, perpetually unhappy. Everything is an outrage, everything is an oppression. And they can’t talk about anything other than politics. Sports, the weather, pets, gardening, you name it, no matter what you want to talk about, so many progressives instantly turn it into a condescending lecture on social justice. They’re like a walking, talking root canal.

    Yet another occupier of the hallowed marbled halls of accademia trying to convince everyone they are a victim.

    There is nothing wrong with a woman speaking her mind as it isn’t with a man doing it also. What I don’t agree with the the use of vulgarity in a public space. There are morals and standards that set people above the masses, especially from someone who is is a government position. Swearing on a public forum like Twitter, FB, Instagram or any other social media may give the person a sense of being a tough and brutish but isn’t very social and show a lack of intelligent. But alas that seems to be the norm nowadays as the dumbing down of society continues its collapse

    It’s awesome that you are amplifying the work of this awesome woman. You need to feature more women who have had enough of men’s bull shit.

    If it wasn’t for double standards the progressive ilk would have none at all. Had these comments been made by a male conservative politician their heads would have exploded. She can bitch and moan from her ivory tower, she is the poster child of the whole “dumbing down” of the university system in Canada and the U.S.

    What’s the point of this article? A grown-up used some swear words and the author wants to tattle on them? Plenty of grown-ups swear e.g. Politicians, lawyers, accountants, hockey players, construction workers, doctors, nurses, etc. If you don’t like her tweets, block them and get on with your life rather than whining about them.

    Dr Tedds is awesome and I loved reading those tweets you quoted! So much truth!! Thanks for bringing her award to my attention – I’m delighted she’s being recognized.

    See? You guys are capable of writing good news stories!

    Wow, this is a sad article by the “tone police”. I’d suggest the author grow up but he appears to be a grown man who doesn’t like women who swear. Maybe he also thinks they should just stay in the kitchen. Sad.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
