Halloween was not “ruined”

I’m occasionally reminded why I don’t read Josh Freed. Here’s a good example: a piece titled Weather hysteria ruined Montreal’s Halloween. Freed rarely wastes an opportunity to take a dig at the Plante administration, and I doubt he went out Friday evening and saw the many happy trick-or-treaters I saw around town that evening. Freed’s just manufacturing consent for despising city hall, and he leads a lot of older anglos into a permanent state of cynicism and dislike for the current administration. (I see it on social media all the time.)

I can taste the sourness when I read him, and that’s why I don’t.
