In a recent article for the Brabant paper The Ancaster News, uber-columnist Kevin Werner was in fine form, mangling facts and throwing out unsupported assertions with wild abandon.
The reporter who wrote last year that CATCH stands for "Citizens Against City Hall" (and didn't publish a correction after I notified him of the error) is at it again in an article against - I mean, about - Hamilton Community Action Network (of which RTH contributor Ben Bull is a member).
He mis-identifies Hamiltonians for Progressive Development as "Hamiltonians for Progressive Change" and calling Ben Bull the "creator of the popular 'Raise The Hammer' website" (hey, at least he recognized that we're popular ;) when he's actually a founding member. Well, close enough.
Werner called CAN's position "a hodge-podge of conflicting themes" and then lists several, but doesn't explain how opposing the Red Hill expressway and big box stores while supporting public transit and Mayor Di Ianni's campaign contribution compliance audit are "conflicting".
If you think it's worth trying to educate Warner on the facts, you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just don't expect a warm response. For a writer who apparently made up his mind before he woke up this morning, why let the facts get in the way of the story?
