Should Rob Ford Sue The CBC?

This might seem like a ridiculous question, but one I'd like to ask; if the taxpayers didn't have to foot the bill, should Rob Ford sue the CBC? I'm not a lawyer, but between trespassing and blatant character assassination, there has to be enough to get a court date. If he were to sue the CBC, the taxpayers would be on the hook for the legal bill, so this is more of a hypothetical question. Home invasions are a little extreme even for the CBC, but I would really like to read the minutes from the meeting where they decided upon this new strategy. What was the dialogue between Walsh and her producer? Maybe I'll send an Access to Information request. They pushed the envelope farther than they ever have, and I suspect it was a deliberate attempt to force the Mayor into the most uncomfortable situation, impromptu left wing sketch comedy at his home in front of his children. Then he overreacted and called the police, prompting the CBC to ridicule him and then publish a negative story about the 9/11 calls that turned out to be totally false. That's damned near slander. You can get sued for that.

Message to anyone considering a political career, the CBC is breaking new ground where you need to be on high alert 24 hours per day. You won't be safe in your homes. Why the f**k anyone would want a career in politics with this ridiculous standard is beyond me. I guess this kind of attack is perpetrated more often against right wing politicians, who are vilified at every opportunity. Every Conservative is "the worst person in the world", right?

I have to give two thumbs up to Ezra Levant for this comedy sketch. It was brilliant and made me laugh out loud.


  1. Damn near slander? That is the definition of slander. Publishing unfounded slanderous remarks in a public domain, written or otherwise communicated.

    The CBC has all the bases covered here, on their web page, on their newscast, texted and on twitter.

    Should he sue? Yeah, for about 1.2 Billion, which he could then return to the Canadian taxpayer.

    Instant hero.


  2. No matter what the CBC does, the taxpayer is still footing the bill. At least if Ford sued them, that would be less money to waste on operations.

  3. Maybe Ezra should do his costume bit and ambush Walsh at her CBC office. He could imitate her ridiculous, contrived, exaggerated newfie accent with it's stupid nautical-sounding gibberish.

    "Lard tunderin' jayzus buy! His jib is stuck in ye poop deck buy!"

    What a friggin idiot. Levant is dead on right. This twit isn't a comedian by any stretch of the imagination. She's a political hack who's too stupid to make thoughtful political commentary so she has to resort to this garbage.

  4. The only way Mayor Ford could look any worse is if he sues the CBC. I hope he does but I'm sure I'll be disappointed.

  5. Liberla judges decide AGAINST the CBC? Yeah right.

    Suing the CBC would be useless. The lefty powers inthe judiciary & "legal" community would never allow it.

  6. The NDP wants to increase spending to CBC.
    Rob Ford should sue CBC and so should we.
