Damn. We’ve lost another legend. CBC reports Sue Johanson has passed away at age 93. According to a rep, the groundbreaking Canadian sex educator died yesterday in a long-term care home just north of Toronto. She was surrounded by family (and hopefully a bunch of sex toys). Continue reading
While the American impression of Canada is a haven of free healthcare, low unemployment rates, and an unusually friendly social nature, don’t be fooled! Like any country, the Great White North has its problems: violations of the rights of marginalized groups, abuses by Canadian mining companies, and the most pressing matter of them all; not a single tour date has been announced yet for Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour! This is why Canadian MP Matt Jeneroux is filing an “official grievance” with the House of Commons “on behalf of all Swifties,” calling on Taylor Swift to reconsider and bring her Eras Tour to Canada. Desperate times call for desperate measures!
Sad news. Legendary singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot has passed away at age 84. His publicist told the CBC that Gordon died last night at a Toronto hospital. The cause of death is unknown, but he canceled all of his 2023 concerts three weeks ago due to “some health-related issues.”
A Radio DJ Who Worked Security On The Set Of “The Love Guru” Said Mike Myers Had Him Fired For Making Eye Contact
2008 was a notably awful year. People ran around wearing shutter shades and Uggs with miniskirts as “Lollipop” played on a loop in our brains while the entire financial system collapsed. The 2008 bar was on the ground, but we could almost all agree (or all of the 10s of people who’ve sat through it) that The Love Guru starring Mike Myers was a corny, unfunny turd, as evidenced by its 13% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and several Razzie Awards. The Love Guru made The Cat In The Hat look like Citizen Kane. But apparently, Mike took his time on set very seriously; because a Canadian radio DJ named Jay Brody says he was hired to work as set security but was fired four hours into his first day for accidentally making eye contact with Mike.
If you’re cold, they’re cold. That was the message part-time Avenger and full-time Canadian freedom fighter Evangeline Lilly shared directly with Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau. Appearing in a video shared by Bridge City News, “a Canadian news show that airs on the Miracle Channel, a Christian television network,” Evangeline pleaded with Justin to “recognize and hear from the people sitting out in the cold at your door.” Evangeline would like for Justin to bring them in. They just want to talk. Apparently, the convoy of Canadian truckers and their itinerant posse of anti-COVID-19 vaccine mandate rabble-rousers were out #inthesestreets freezing to death because they can’t afford to keep their jumpy castles inflated and heated at the same time.
The Québec Influencers Who Got Banned From An Airline For Partying On Their Flight Are Stuck In Mexico
Nope, that’s not Emma Roberts vaping in the header pic (as far as I know). It’s one of the 150 Québécois influencers who chartered a Sunwing Airlines flight from Montreal to Cancun on December 30. Despite the efforts of plane staff, these kids spent five hours partying, vaping, drinking, and not wearing masks. And because they’re all dumber than a sack of hammers, they posted videos of their debauchery to social media. Big mistake. HUGE. The footage became headline news, and even Prime Minister Justin Trudeau got involved, calling the incident “a slap in the face.” Cuz, you know, the pandemic. Although I’d have thought JT would have been a little more understanding, considering everybody makes mistakes in their twenties.
