CityTv news anchor Gord Martineau left his job of nearly four decades.
Toronto television station CityNews says the man fired over hurling sexually explicit remarks at reporter Shauna Hunt last weekend has apologized for his actions.
I have to wonder how many incredibly stupid things we all say on our downtime. With the firing of Shawn Simoes, the Hydro One employee embroiled in the recent #FHRITP controversy, we decided to reach out to our Parent Tested Parent Approved community to see what real families had to say about this ongoing conversation.
People are now asking whether Shawn Simoes deserved to lose his job for defending his friend shouting FHRITP on-camera. I'm firm on this: he did. Hydro One's decision sends the message that this behaviour is categorically not okay. By firing Simoes, Hydro One is at least admitting that an individual's private and professional lives are never truly separate because the same person occupies both spaces. We're living in a post-Jian Ghomeshi setting, and while Ghomeshi hasn't been convicted, what he's accused of happened both at work and at home. The idea that one affects the other isn't far-fetched.
