I’ve always been a big fan of Blatchford. She is a solid writer, tugging on emotions and writing with a very straight up style.
I’d like to think she’s an unaware dupe in this psyop. Still, it’s hard to believe with all her contacts that someone hasn’t told her this is all fakery.
It was a dog’s breakfast of a file – with the singular feature, almost unheard of in a sexual assault complaint, of an independent witness – that led police and prosecutors to conclude they couldn’t charge anyone in the Rehtaeh Parsons case.
With information from sources close to the investigation, Postmedia has learned that much of the accepted gospel about the case – teenager is gang-raped, humiliated by the circulation of a cruel picture of the assault, then abandoned by the justice system and driven to suicide – is incomplete.
