Via Lucile Barker of the Canuckistan Pink(o) Fringe:
Schizas: Just to get back to our previous quick quotes on Andrea Horwath. I think whore is the operative syllable there. Oakley: Well, well let’s not take it that farSchizas: What do you mean? She was bought.Oakley: (in agreement) Alright, bought and paid for. Alright, it’s pejorativeSchizas: Alright, Sorry, I’ll take the hit.Oakley: That’s alright.Schizas: I’ll take the hit.
As Justin Stayshyn (h/t transcript) rightly notes, “Lou Schizas works for AM640 so this isn’t just some random guy calling Andrea a whore.”
Update: More details (& audio) from this newswire:
The exchange took place [this AM] on the The John Oakley Show during a panel with Buzz Hargrove and Catherine Swift, who apparently did not call Schizas out on his comment after Oakley’s soft chiding.
Schizas is a business correspondent and joins Oakley for his a “Happy Capitalism” segment.
We’ve left a message with the station for comment and awaiting their reply.
While that newswire awaits a response, feel free to contact the CBSC and CRTC if the spirit moves you.
