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...

hi salamander....of course you're right. I haven't written an angry post like this one for quite a while. I learned long ago that by engaging such vile creatures you only end up degrading yourself.
But I was REALLY angry for two reasons.
One, I find the amount of homophobia in the air this holiday season to be practically suffocating. Almost unbelievable and totally disgusting.
But also, and even more importantly, what happened to Christopher Peloso is the nightmare of all those who love or help take care of people suffering from depression. It is without a doubt the hardest thing I have ever experienced, with its setbacks, and the state of the support system out there. And when those bigots make light of our nightmare it's simply unforgivable. and it made me see red. But don't worry, I'm much mellower now. And if I can keep the images of those smarmy bigots out of my head, I can still be the life of our small New Year's Eve party. I'd better be !#@!! Happy New Year to you and yours...
it is sad when people die. For people like Ezra Levant to make horrible comments about it is about as sick as it gets. guys like he and Coren are such miserable individuals. They lack something which most human beings have.
Actually had never seen Levant until the cable carried the station out here in B.C. if this is what the east has to offer Canadian "culture", please find a sewer disposal and flush the two of them. Of course in their minds, they are getting publicity and that is what they thrive on. Both Coren and Levant are eastern creations and lets hope they never find their way across the country. Once you have seen them on t.v. you know why the station ought to never be carried as a regular station on cable. They remind you of the wack jobs in the southern U.S.A.
Depression is an illness, some times it can be treated. On those occasions when it can not be, those who have simply can not go on. it is not failure. it simply can not be borne any longer. Depression is an honest illness.
What levant and coren suffer from is some moral deprivation, they hve created.
Speaking of attention and publicity whores...somebody needs to ask Ezra how much money he paid his friend Kevin to ghost write the books that he claims to have written.
Levant is desperate, grasping for attention to the mediocrity that is his whole existence.
Happy Nev Year to you and yours, Simon. Let it shine, all the time.
There is a special circle of hell reserved for Ezra Levant. He is the pure embodiment of tacky, xenophobic,self-righteous bigotry and hate. I think he's also deep down very self-hating & closeted. It's more disturbing that the man has an audience, then his mere existence. Shame on anyone and anything that gives this man a public platform with which to flagrantly advertise his unstoppable bigoted hate-speech.Oh yeah but the Cons don't care a single whit about shame. He deserves to suffer.
"He deserves to suffer" So did Layton, and many got that wish to come true! LOL
Sounds more you like you, Thwap. LOL
"Is it syphilis of the soul" — yes indeed, a psychopathy. Stevie's orcs have the same mind-set as we saw in Hitler's senior Nazis: a complete lack of empathy, regard and respect and a corruption of ethics. It is this inherent corruption that generates the seeds of its eventual removal.
Have a safe and happy New Year.
You sound like a sociopath and you fit right in with the other sociopath being Levant and Harper and his degenerates. You also sound much like Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini and, we all know what happened to them? What goes around, comes around and, they got theirs.
There's one for you now anonymous COWARD.
More gutter comments (for the one who asked for proof!) about someone dying http://www2.macleans.ca/2013/12/31/online-anonymity-is-the-last-refuge-of-cowards/#.UsNDxyYGI04.twitter
As opposed to you: even lower on the Great Chain of Being that you're forced to troll me.

depression is real & it's a day to day struggle to fight against its subversive agenda
hi e.a.f...I think moral deprivation is exactly the right word to describe Levant and Coren. In a country where so many people suffer from depression their comments are simply unforgivable. They have, if further evidence was needed, as the absolute scum of the earth. But please we'll take the blame for the gollum Coren, but don't blame us poor easterners for the monster Levant. We blame Alberta for foisting that one upon us. And the good news is they'll all be going back there soon...
hi anon...I'm afraid I have no idea about any of Levant's books. The only way I could see me picking up a copy of his garbage is if I was camping and needed to start a fire. Or heaven forbid, if I ran out of toilet paper. But as a tweeter pointed out to me the other day, he is the very useful face of the Con regime and he does them no favours...
hi thwap...he must be desperate to act in such a foul manner. It has always been his style to try to shock people, and cynically whip up his small band of moronic followers. But the more he tries to keep his gig going the more he disgusts the decent people of this country. I give him six months before he's fired....
hi anon...thank you and the same to you and yours. After all the horrible times we've been through, I intend to enjoy every minute of this year. I love Con stories with tragic endings....;)
hi anon 10:54...I do hope that Levant finally gets to pay for all the grotesque garbage he has spewed out over the years. He is a truly disgusting human being and deserves to be shunned by all decent people. The man simply doesn't understand the difference between provocation and political pornography. And he deserves the worst fate possible...
hi anonycon 2:26...Gawd. I thought maybe the example of that decent conservative I linked to in this post might help lift you out of the gutter. But no, you simply cannot change, and will never understand why we are so much better than you are. Pity. We all have one life, and you are going to look back at yours and see nothing but foulness, and if I have anything to do with it the pain of total defeat...
And it doesn't care what it's victim's political beliefs are, Coren and Levant would like you to believe it only happens to social progressives.
.. anonymous at 5:19 PM .. please clarify or correct if possible.. as there's an implied threat in your message
Stalin died in his bed. Of those three nasty people, only Mussolini was actually killed by partisans; though Hitler killed himself to avoid the inevitable payback from the Soviet troops in Berlin.
sometimes when watching some of these teabagging types pontificate and carry on, as if they had something important to say, I do get to wondering if they went off their meds. "we have Levant and Coren and the U.S.A. has a something called fox news with all sorts of people. it really does seem some of them have mental health issues and are off their meds. Perhaps we ought to be more understanding of their mental problems, because mental problems they must have given the drivel coming out of their mouths.
Can we bring out the violins for all of you whiners...Get over it.
