I know it’s wrong to make fun of victims of violence, but:
- We’re just now getting around to compensating store owners after the post-Stanley Cup riots in Montreal. The riots where we won the Stanley Cup. In 1993. Fourteen years ago.
- Joe Clark was punched in the face for no apparent reason on Sherbrooke street last month, giving him a bloody nose.
- A Union Station street meat vendor got badly burned after he lost consciousness and his clothes caught fire. The headline for this story on the Edmonton Sun website was, for a brief time, “Toronto hotdog vendor roasted.”
Can’t we laugh, just a little bit? Please?
