Good news for war crime fanboys in Toronto

My Globe and Mail informs me this morning that "prominent Toronto philanthropist" Peter Munk has donated five millions in pocket change to ensure that the "Munk debates" outlive him.

This will allow Toronto to survive as a "hub for intellectual discussion." It's not clear if writer Luke Carroll actually spoke with Munk or debate chair Rudyard Griffiths, or if he's just working from a corporate press release, but the thought that Toronto needs Munk's money to foster some vague sense of intellectual maturity is truly beyond hokum.

Munk's money will allow this staged pseudo-intellectual media event to continue paying the speakers fees demanded by "some of the world's most prominent thinkers."

Like Tony Blair and Henry Kissinger?!

Get the f*ck outta here!

The only speech I'd ever want to hear from either of those blood-drenched war criminals will come from the prisoner's docket at the ICC.
