    That column in the Toronto Sun… sure seems the writer has a grudge against us. That wasn’t journalism, that was a troll forum post written by a professional journalist. Very classy.

    I really hope he has some answers for the people he answers to

    He literally insulted half of this country.
    Obvious leafs fan.
