Ian Davey culturally illiterate

Ian Davey, Michael Ignatieff’s former chief of staff, said the Toronto Sun was "a newspaper for people who can’t read." Then he added: "And I think that probably applies to the whole chain." What an illiterate oaf! I don’t mean Davey can’t read or write. He’s culturally illiterate. Aside from coverage of news in all its variants, the Sun chain has hosted a pantheon of first-rate columnists over several decades ญญ providing informed analysis of many issues of importance to Canadians.
