What's the matter with the Calgary Sun?
The Sun has never shied away from taking a bold stand when we believe it will benefit Calgarians.
We believe Naheed Nenshi should be Calgary’s next mayor.
Luckily, they explain their decision:
He’s a prof at Mount Royal University, but doesn’t engage in the egghead bafflegab we’ve come to expect from some academics.
On Thursday, I warned Calgarians their city was going soft. I won't issue the Sun a similar warning, but endorsing professors in political races is the first step on a slippery slope...if they're not careful, the sunshine girl may soon be replaced with a page of book reviews or some other elitist nonsense.
