Diana Burke toronto centre

The Toronto Centre nomination for the right to replace Bob Rae as a Liberal MP comes to an end this coming Sunday at a downtown public library. In the spirited nomination battle are three vastly different candidates vying to win the nomination. These candidates include the great community activist Todd Ross, the vibrant Diana Burke and the well accomplished Chrystia Freeland.
What led an overzealous journalist to take Diana Burke's comments a few days ago out of context and write a negative headline? Maybe it sold some papers, or maybe it just generated some traffic to a website to keep advertisers happy, I don't know what motivated it. The second part of Ms. Burke's comments never made the story of course, because that wouldn't be entertaining.
