The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) has issued a notice that it is suspending comments posted below news reports on matters concerning indigenous people because “over many months these stories draw a disproportionate number of comments that cross the line and violate our guidelines.” The notice posted earlier this week characterized some comments as “clearly hateful”, “vitriolic” and “ignorant”.

The suspension will continue until the middle of January, perhaps longer. We shall see.

This suspension of comments follows a similar suspension decision by the Toronto Sun daily newspaper announced at the end of September.

Well, there is that saying that “haters gotta hate.”
