Meet Patrick Brazeau (pictured), the sexist Canadian senator who called Ottawa-based reporter, Jennifer Ditchburn, a “bitch” yesterday. Her crime: she’d done her job by highlighting his poor attendance record in Canada’s appointed upper house of Parliament. He immediately issued a “reluctant” apology.
Why did Brazeau call a report doing her job a “bitch”? Is it because he’s an ex-soldier? Brazeau served in the Canadian Armed Forces. Is it because he’s a 2nd degree black belt in Karate. Is it..?
Below is my appeal to newly-appointed Conservative senator and former Ottawa Police chief, Vernon White, to resign. I mailed the letter to the senator on March 14, 2012. On the same day, I started an indefinite hunger strike against the Conservative government’s cruel new crime law, the deceptively christened “Safe Streets and Communities Act” (Bill C10).
Why the senator’s resignation is the second most important of my hunger strike demands…
