Bill Leak’s Last Testament

Quote: ‘As the senses of humour of people suffering from PC atrophy, their sensitivity to criticism becomes more and more acute until they get to the stage where everything offends them and they lose the ability to laugh entirely. For people with chronic PC, feeling offended is about as good as it gets’

Canada has nothing approaching the greatness of Bill Leak.

    A great man, taken too soon.

    “because art, like political activism, is a form of therapy, it’s supposed to reinforce and confirm their prejudices, not challenge them.

    It’s a must-read speech!

    • It is a loss.

      Agreed. The little I have seen of his work makes we wish there was someone that talented – and that brave – in Canada.
