Wong place, Wong time?
Speaking of TVO, and given the fact that everyone seems to be dumping on Jan Wong right now, I thought I'd add to the mix by remembering out loud her appearance on the public broadcaster that I watched a couple of months back.
Basically, along with two other "academics," she apologized for the Mao regime of China and defended it against a book that was sharply critical of the communist dictator.
I don't know if what she said then or now disqualifies her from being a writer for a major Canadian newspaper, but there does appear to be a pattern of wackiness there. Apparently, the Globe and Mail likes her wackiness — at least for now.
