From Barry Wilson’s CTV News Postscript blog:
WHAT WAS THAT LINE FROM FOREST GUMP?
STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES.
SO YOU HAVE THESE IDIOTS FROM SOME COCKAMAMIE SEPARATIST GROUP THREATENING TO TRY TO JOIN IN ON SUNDAY’S ST PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
THEY COMPLAIN THE PARADE IS TOO ENGLISH.
SO? THERE POINT IS?
Ad hominem attacks on language issues are always best done with blatant grammatical errors in your mother tongue.
being a separatist myself (but a good one) I’m happy to see that you have those guys also. You know the one that gives your cause a bad name!

I guess Executive Producers DON’T HAVE TO LEARN TO TYPE ANYMORE. Or maybe when he went to Executive Producers school, they did not typewriters with lowercase.

Grammar shrammer. He’s right.
The ALL CAPS CRAZINESS has more to do with the fact that he probably just copies and pastes from the script he reads from on the air. For some reason TV prompter scripts are always written in all caps.
Check out the comments to his blog posts. Pretty brutal.
Yeah but Word has this button to make sellected text into lowercase, or Title case or what-not. It only takes a second.

I had no idea Quebec was founded by the Jews… Why didn’t you tell me Concordia and McGill?!
I love how, when Kate from Montreal Weblog wrote about the upcoming protest, she pointed out that, yes, there is too much English in the parade. You know, what with it being an *Irish* event.
Wow! The real story here isn’t grammer; it is:
1-“The only murderers and stealers of natives are the racist British Loyalists and their jewish slave trader friends.”
2-“Vive le Québec FRANÇAIS !”
3-“Another ignorant anglophone who has been feeded McGill & Concordia jewish loyalist propaganda.”
4-“You should avoid topics of history and stick to your job of entertaining the ignorants.”
