Margaret Atwood Should Resign From PEN International

She has written the forward to a book by David Suzuki - who thinks politicians should be jailed for their climate change decisions. She has also encouraged her Twitter followers to visit a web page that says a TV station that hasn’t even begun broadcasting should be stopped.

When is a Job Offer Not a Job Offer? (Part 1)

Invited in May to join a new Canadian television station, I was supposed to be a contrarian voice on topics such as global warming and David Suzuki. By October, the broadcaster had lost its nerve. This multi-part essay relates how Canadian cultural icon Margaret Atwood teamed up with an American, left-wing activist group to interfere with Canadian consumers' television choices. I'm a bit player in this drama (albeit one wooed & then jilted by a media company lacking even a scrap of honour). The bigger picture is that Canadians will continue to be fed the same old pablum.
