Rachel Marsden's Comeback?
Please back up
I know you look good
But that ain’t enough to get half of my stuff
-Cypress Hill

I knew I recognized the name Rachel Marsden before, because I'm westcoast; Now I know why I know.

Remember Liam Donnelly? The SFU swim coach who was falsely accused of rape by Marsden?

via the Fraser Institute
SFU also acknowledged that the case against Donnelly depended on Marsden’s credibility, and that contradictions between her written representations and her testimony cast doubt on her credibility

To say the least:
[SFU] disclosed that Marsden had sent Donnelly e-mails offering various sexual treats (both Clintonesque and non-Clintonesque), well after the time of the last claimed assault

That depends on what your definition of "Clintoneque" is.

How about Neil Boyd and Michael Morgan?
Marsden followed that up in 1999 by making similar allegations about another SFU faculty member, criminology professor Neil Boyd, and she was recently convicted of violating a restraining order placed on her by 52 year old Vancouver radio personality Michael Morgan.

Now maybe some on the right are going out of their way to defend Ms. Marsden, but if the right is going to retain some credibility, we're going to need some better cheerleaders.

The Aspers would be wise to watch their back with this one. Oh, and if she sends any um, "interesting" emails, it's probably best to start gathering evidence for trial.
Keep your eyes open
'Cause you don't wanna get caught
Half steppin' with your weapon on safety

Rachel Marsden and Judi McLeod are both whackjobs of the same feather.

People in TO with long memories still remember her antics in the 1990s. McLeod cozied up to NDP stalwarts Jack Layton and Peter Tabuns, betraying her conservative colleagues on Toronto’s City Council in the process, destroying some of their careers.

You can see the proof on Western Standard’s blog page. Too bad the University student who posted it doesn’t know how to spell “Political.”


Now she's telling us the Mob may have been behind 9/11

A pox on both their houses.

You seem to have insight of what's up on the east coast, but out here, Marsden is bad news for certain.

Marsden now lives in Toronto.

I just read the article the first poster referred to...

...how could anybody in their right mind write such drivel? Surely the guys with the butterfly nets should know about this woman. (I assume they already know about Marsden!)

Anon #2:

I plead ignorance on McLeod. Marsden was a westcoast newsmaker for a while in the '90s though.
