Memo to the Canadian Press: Speculation is not news.

The Canadian Press is apparently not about current events.

But speculating about the future.

By bragging about the number of medals Canada might win at the Olympics.

As if anyone could reasonably know.

Let’s not put the cart before the horse, kids.

We can actually report on things we know are happening right now.

Like all the laws Canada does not have, but should.

That ought to keep you busy for a very long while.

For example, the BBC had an interesting article on gaslighting.

And the kicker is this:

Some tactics of gaslighting, including isolating the victim from sources of support and depriving them of means needed for independence, could fall under the “Controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate or family relationship” section of the Serious Crime Act of 2015, in England and Wales.

But controlling or coercive behaviour is not a crime in Canada

Hear that, Canadian Press?

That is more important than crowing about the medals we don’t have yet.

So knock it off.

Or else, you sound like this…
