Open Letter to A Toronto Mediot

Mr. Shoalts;

Most of the security guards who work at the RBC Center don't even know arena policy, so the fact that one of the securebots doesn't know who one of the Hurricanes' better defensemen is should be no surprise--after all, it's no surprise to any of us. Even so, I take umbrage at your arrogant smearing of the Triangle area and the people who live here based on the ignorance of one goofball. That's like saying that all Canadians wear toques and eat back bacon, based on the caricatures of Bob and Doug McKenzie.

I don't expect an apology from you, because I have a feeling that it will be arrogant, patronizing, and insincere (something that I have come to expect from the Globe and Mail's columnists over the years)--but I'd appreciate it if you would kindly take your smug know-it-all attitude, fold it until it is all sharp corners, and insert it with great force in a spot where the sun doesn't shine.
