It’s not gaming related, but I wanted to mention this anyways.
A recent immigrant from India seemed to have made an attempt to befriend the Premiere, and in an email, used a common expression in India, that was taken as a threat here.
I wonder if McGuinty ever even saw the email? It was probably filtered out and the police were contacted before it even reached his inbox.
In fact, I wonder if McGuinty even knew about this before the media picked it up.
Working at International Services for Students at Ryerson University, I met quite a few students from India, and to hear some of them saying “I can’t believe you did that! I’m going to kill you!”, or something similar in a joking manner is common. Even some Canadians use this expression.
Most Canadian’s know that’s completely inappropriate to say something like that in Parliament – but how are recent immigrants supposed to learn this? Through ongoing ordeals with the police and legal system?
How could the Premiere have dealt with this better, particularly if the email was filtered, and nobody in his office informed him of it? He’d better respond quickly, now that it’s in the news.
