It's the kind of tragedy than can strike many families, particularly at this time of the year.
Politicians from all parties and levels of government are paying tribute to Christopher Peloso, the husband of Ontario's former deputy premier George Smitherman, after Peloso was found dead following a long struggle with depression.
A very sad story.
But don't expect Con animals like the disgusting Ezra Levant to show any sympathy.
Because he's having a field day...
3 @seanomalleyctv I'm sure Smitherman's grieving. Last time Peloso was found by cops, Smitherman was photo-opping next day with @cafreeland

Or rolling in his own excrement.
But then what do we expect from a bigot beast like him?
When this is the way he mocked the death of Jack Layton...
And was joined on that sordid occasion by the grubby religious fanatic Michael Coren...
Who like so many Cons today was also rolling in his own homophobia.
@ezralevant @seanomalleyctv @cafreeland George a former drug addict, Peloso with mental health issues; yet they're allowed to adopt. Odd!

Because that's the ghastly gollum he is...
The smarmiest bigot, and fake Christian, that ever crawled out from under a rock.
And when you see their hideous comments you really have to wonder what makes so many Cons so DISEASED?
Is it syphilis of the soul or cancer of the brain?
And the temptation is to say that if it is cancer, let it be FATAL. For what other fate are you supposed to wish upon people so bigoted and so cruel?
But of course we cannot say that eh? Because we are supposed to be better than them. Most progressives ARE better than that.
And it is only fair to point out, so is this Blogging Tory.
To those who look on the death of another human being, a fellow Canadian as just one more opportunity to make hurtful comments and to express their smug self-righteous sanctimony I say this. Your lack of fundamental values and your lack of basic human compassion contribute nothing to this society. A fellow human being has died. His family mourn and only the morally bankrupt take his death and his family’s suffering as yet one more opportunity to spit out spite and hatred.
For that is decent and well said. And this too is true:
Depression is not simply “Everybody has issues – get over it.” It is an illness that kills more people than heart disease and cancer combined and living with someone who suffers from depression is challenging and stressful.
And the reason I know it's true is because I have been accompanying a friend on his journey out of the darkness of depression and the shadow of suicide for over a year. So I know all too well what a terrible enemy it can be.
I know what those public service announcements mean when they say "Depression hurts EVERYONE."
And when I had to tell my friend that Christopher Peloso had killed himself, I felt like part of me had died as well. So fearful was I that he should be discouraged, after so much progress, and do the same thing.
So all I will say is that we must do more to fight the demon depression, that claims so many lives, and causes so much suffering and despair. Because trust me there is not nearly enough help out there for all those who need it so badly.
We should also all write to Sun TV and their sponsors, and ask them is that the kind of people they employ or finance?
And of course we must do all we can to condemn the filthy bigot beast Ezra Levant.
Who soils himself so shamelessly. Over and over again.
And in the name of human decency, and basic hygiene.
Deposit him where he rightfully belongs...
