ARMCHAIR MAYOR POLL — Federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau dropped the F-bomb this week during a charity boxing match. Are we too sensitive about the F word? Should we set it free to grace (or pollute) conversation both private and public? Have your say in the poll that appears in the sidebar of this page.

    I’m very surprised that as of yet I’m the only person to Comment? I’m glad that Justin’s wife, Sophie, took him to task for his lapse (his own words). These types of comments do not bode well for a young man wanting to be taken seriously, it’s just “not on” in this stage of his political life. If all his potential voters were young 20 or 30 “something’s” then that is all well and good, however the reality is that a huge number of voters are seniors and this would be considered to be demonstrating a lack of class.
