Welcome to Crazy Canadian Comments, a weekly column featuring the most outlandish comments made on popular news sites (mostly the National Post and Globe and Mail, because that’s where all the angry senior citizens are).


Boy, have we got some weird comments for you this week. First, to The Globe and Mail, where news broke of Jim Prentice’s new role as PC leader and Premier-designate of Alberta.

The great Michael Ignatieff may no longer bless us with his endless wisdom, but his name lives on– in the form of an insult. I’m sure Stéphane Dion is relieved to hear someone else has taken the burden.


This past week, we lost another legendary comedian. Joan Rivers, whether you loved her or hated her, was a groundbreaking performer who paved the way for female comics. This fellow on a National Post article gives her a touching tribute.

Thanks. I’m sure she would appreciate the critique of her talents from a National Post commenter.


In what is quite possibly the strangest news recently, a Quebec adult film star had a…”marathon”…of sorts with 25 men in order to raise money for breast implants. The article was on Sun News, so you can expect some great observations.

Continuing with Sun News, there is an article that claims the 125 year old mystery of Jack the Ripper has been solved. Through advances in DNA research, scientists claim that Jack the Ripper was a Polish immigrant to London. This breakthrough discovery will definitely spark interesting dialogue for years to come.

Finally, we close with another Globe and Mail article discussing overcrowded Ontario kindergartens, and Kathleen Wynne’s legislative plans to address their problems.

Dry Liberal sounds like a liberal?! Maybe this is why we need to keep a focus on education.
