Upside down reporting of the assault on Leah H.
8.02.06 by Buffalo Bill
Maybe I am overreacting, but the article seems to take as a given that Leah provoked the assault. As if she somehow invaded this guy’s space in the most insensitive way imaginable and grossly violated his privacy.
She did nothing of the sort: she was simply rectifying his thoughtless littering. If the Globe and Mail thinks that taking exception to littering is environmental extremism then… … I guess that I begin to understand why Canadian business have such a big problem with relatively loosely and hardly restrictive international treaties like the Kyoto Protocol. Leah is not a heroine – she is simply a responsible member of society trying fulfil civic duties. That she is held up as some sort of hysteric is outrageous.
Most Canadians I know are deeply embarassed by the behaviour of this berk. Unfortunately, the Canadians that I know are not representative of the population at large.
