Default Isn't this a Head Shaker ?

Apparently the hero of Ft. Mac isn't what he appears to be.

Well at this point it appears to be a 'she said, he said'.
Or has AO joined the Me Too movement?
If it can be proven or more accusers come forth than hang him high...until then...

If and when this is proven, I will condemn him, until then, I have seen too many accusations of this type that turned out to be false.

It seems that every news article I read lately has the comments turned off? When did we lose the ability to discuss things, have opinions?

I don't think the media should be able to publish things like this until it's been proven. What will probably happen is that, whether true or not, he will likely lose his job, suffer a financial set back defending himself, people are going to look at him and treat him differently, and probably experience some harassment from some of the #metoo radicals. It's really unfortunate that the media is will to hang people out to dry like this with headlines and accusations in big bold letters and justify it by sticking "these allegations have not been proven" somewhere in the article that will probably just be read over.

I was thinking another cry for attention until I read that Allen had been let go from his Calgary postition upon investigation.

Seems to me an old creep couldn't keep it together and got shipped up north.

Or is it because, as often happens itís better optics to just get rid of the person than let them have their day in court.
