Damian Goddard lost his job after tweeting his support of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. After a career of nearly 20 years spanning both radio and television sports broadcasting, and at the time one of the leading anchors on Sportsnet, Goddard was immediately fired for voicing his view on marriage. He now has a case before the Human Rights Commission challenging his dismissal.

  • “New Frontiers and New World Orders” – August 26th, 2014 10:27 pm

    One of my favourite albums is “The Nightfly” by Donald Fagen. (It came out a year after Steely Dan called it quits, but I was too young to be broken up about it.) The song “New Frontier” was Fagen’s way of needling the nuclear war fear-mongers of the day. (…remember Ultravox’s “Dancing With Tears In […]

    Jason Riley: “The black man’s most notorious enemy is the black man, not the white cop.” Meet The Press Producer in the control room: “Son of a bitch, he’s going off script! He’s going off script! Kill his mic!… Kill… No, no! (Hitting the switch to Andrea Mitchell’s IFB) Andrea! What tha hell!… Get in […]
