When I first started writing this blog, Michael Coren was a regular target for my ire, especially when he would go off spouting right wing talking points about gay marriage. Quite frankly, I saw little difference between his columns published in the Sun newspapers and the tirades of his then ally Charles McVety.
About a month ago, I saw a segment on CBC's Power and Politics (starts at 1:39:00) where McVety and Coren were talking about Ontario's new sex-ed curriculum. I was shocked at the irrational flailing about of McVety, and even more stunned by how reasonable Mr. Coren was sounding.
It turns out that Mr. Coren has had quite a change of heart.
I applaud Mr. Coren taking steps to change in light of new evidence and information. While I don't expect to agree with him on all matters in the future, I applaud his thoughtful, reasoned approach. I wish him well.
