We need to talk, The Toronto Star.
Look, I don’t like Rob Ford anymore than you do, and I don’t want to see the Centre Island Zoo closed down in his slash and burn policies either. And I’ve been pretty glad to see you hold his feet to the fire — so much so, in fact, he refuses to take questions from you and has implored Torontonians read any other city newspaper but yours. Quite an honour, I’d say. That’s why this is hard for me to say but…
A fucking horse whisperer? Are you fucking serious? I was born and raised in rural Ontario. My town was surrounded by a dairy farm, a pig farm, and four horse farms. No one I have ever known, including the horse owners, believed in this telepathic nonsense. Why the fuck are you headlining your online newspaper with this? There are so many arguments to be made against closing the zoos and you chose to bring in someone’s crazy aunt Lauren to tell us the horses are scared? Is this a late April Fools joke?
Get your act together, The Toronto Star. This isn’t amateur hour.
