Would it be inappropriate of the GG to go to a woman’s conference and say that women deserve to be treated equally? Because some religious groups might take offence?

First of all, if you're including Trudeau in this discussion you're misunderstanding what the controversy is about, (i.e. he's an elected official). Secondly, "equality of women" is most definitely not in the same category as global warming. It's not in the same category as deeply held religious beliefs either.

It's worth noting that many, if not most, of the people criticizing the GG agree with what she said. The issue here is the role of the GG and not about whether we agree or disagree with her actual opinions. I like Julie Payette and respect what she's accomplished. She's an amazing woman. I just think she needs to be reminded what her role is as Governor General.

You do understand a scientific conference is not a church right? Right?


and you understand that the entire man-made climate change hoax is basically a religion, right? But way to deliberately deflect. If you make a statement that people who believe in some sort of divine creator are basically stupid, then you are going to offend every person who practices that religion. You can't pick and choose religions, because one might be an easy touch while others are not. Especially when you are a government-paid representative. This GG is a complete idiot, and was appointed by a complete idiot.
Not sure why I bother with a signature as it seems to just randomly disappear on a regular basis. Especially if it offends liberal snowflakes.

This statement just made me fall over laughing. This is EXACTLY what happens every single time that a Muslim extremist attacks innocents. EVERY SINGLE TIME the Left goes nuts trying to "not offend" people. Now we have a GG who is totally offending Muslims (if she had been a Harper appointee, most Leftists here would already be calling her an Islamaphobe) with her stupid statements about religion, and it's totally ok to offend Muslims. This ideological pretzel just gets more bendy every day.

of course climate change is a fact. The climate is always changing. It's the unproven hypothesis that man is causing any effect on this change that is up for debate, and so far, those saying that man is having an effect seem to think that emotion is all that they need due to the absence of actual proof. That and insults.

as someone who is constantly going on about Indigenous and FA issues, I am stunned that you would support this lunatic woman's total insult of their belief system. It's always amazing to me how fast Leftists are to sell out their core principles in a heart-beat if it means that they have to defend someone's idiotic actions. I really am shocked. Totally shocked. The Leftists here are totally cool with the Indigenous and Muslims being attacked by a government representative. Unbelievable.

Muslims and the Indigenous are "snowflakes"?? Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.

There's not much political debate about climate change, I agree, but there is much debate about the unproven scientific hypothesis that man is somehow changing the climate. I am not sure how you missed that distinction, as it was pretty obvious.

And I agree - there shouldn't be any debate about the myth that god put man on the earth 3000 years ago as stated by some right wing religious US senator and branded as fact a few years ago until some religion based proof can be put forward that it actually happened. Until then, why even debate such a stupid hypothesis?

Interesting that people will believe in the chemistry knowledge of scientists and take meds that keep them alive. Drink alcohol brewed to meet a specific flavour and alcohol content. Salt their driveways to melt the snow. Fuel their cars with gasoline that has been processed to work with their engines. Mix a certain amount of flour, yeast, sugar etc to do their holiday baking. Not questioning the science and chemistry that goes into all of this.

But suddenly common folk think they know more about CO2 than chemists? They think that scientists don’t understand how one of the most basic chemical compounds functions and interacts with the environment. Give me a break.
