I don't pay much attention to what CC'ers, netizens, yoots or even 12 year old 4chan heros post on the web these days nor do I care very much either. I visit some of the darkest and ugliest websites ever created and really, there is nothing much that can 'offend' me.

But it's a fairly established principle (to which most of us subscribe) that family members are off limits when it comes to flinging our manly poo about.

Many of us have seen how badly that turns out.


I've read that completely desensitized men are unable to have an erection. You sound like you're completely desensitized. Is that true? Actually, I don't have to ask.

Speaking of denigrating women....

Well at least you're not gender biased when it comes to denigrating.

And we'll just toss out something for the homosexual community.

Man, Jann Arden really does bring out the worst in people huh.

You know ... "what do you call a line of rabbits running backward??" a receding hairline

Hey at least I can laugh at myself and admit when I'm an ***.. life's to short as it is..



That's it I'm going to jump off the CN tower.


You can sit next to me if you're like.

Naw ... I think a lot of that comes from encounters with dickless Tracys. The guy member gets upset that it actually could be a homosexual encounter.

Is there something wrong with how Ms Arden is put together?

Desensitized? Explain it, oh experienced one....

OK I'm bored so I'll bite on this...

I'm not about call Jann Arden a liar in this without proof. Her version sounds reasonable to me: I have been in a position of traveling in an unfamiliar place/unfamiliar mode and just went along with the crowd/improvised as I went, which is what her account reminds me of and I have dealt with officious idiots, especially working for the federal gov't and quasi Crown corps before, all too often. I haven't seen any corroboration of outbursts/tantrums, and if sarcastic retorts fit that bill, then a lot of us are guilty a lot more often than is reported.

How this all applies to Ms Arden's body/sexuality or that of anyone else is beyond me, unless there was a lot more happening on that train then I have read.

We've probably all been subjected to poor treatment at sometime in our lives, but we didn't put it on National news. Ms. Arden has to choice to write a discreet letter to the company or file a complaint in the "complaint box". As for Ms. Arden's body/sexuality you might check with Boomer.

She didn't "put on the National News", she put it on Twitter, which is a far different deal: its like you emailing or telling some friends on the phone, about a s***ty experience. She is a celeb, she has fans, this is what celebs do. I'm not a fan of a lot of Twitter users because they often use it in anger, and there is no edit after the fact, but its how celebs and fans interact in the Social Media Age. I'd bet she is probably surprised by the attention this garnered (but I doubt she is displeased).

You're right- she's a "big girl" who can (and does) take care of herself!

It's publicity - and her accountants don't have to dole out a dime for it....

Anything one puts on twitter isn't any different than flying it behind a plane, written on a banner, around the country.

Its telling everyone.

She travels 250 days per year with her dog and always makes special travel and hotel arrangements for her dog. It seems that she was booked into a hotel that allowed pets - since we didn't hear anything about that. On VIARAIL, where animals have to travel in baggage, she and her assistant both, coincidentally, completely forgot to make travel arrangements for the dog. When she had the opportunity to make arrangements for the dog enroute, she refused and instead made a national stink about it.

Does that sound reasonable?

The first clue should be in the number of words she used to say "I Forgot" ... it's a really big, long story where she mentions even her mom. She tries to come off as a ditzy 20 year old. I don't believe a word of it.

It does sound reasonable to me. She hadn't traveled on Via before, and both Jann and her Assistant made bad assumptions that the rules would be the same as in Europe. Even when you travel all the time, booking with professionals, sometimes things slip through the cracks: I know from personal experience.

As for the Twitter thing, if I was faced by the Canadian transportation industry's version of the Seinfeld "Soup Nazi", and had any followers on Twitter, yeah they'd know about it too...

It's just an extention of the word "twit".

You might do a lot better if that pump you were mentioning was hooked up to your brain- if you can find an interface that is small enough!

Did any of you know, before this story, that VIA did not allow dogs on board? I know that I didn't, but I never checked. The only time in the last 20 years that I travelled on VIA, they dumped us in Montreal due to a strike, and had no idea what to do next, and wouldn't refund our money.

As far as I'm concerned, VIA can all go to hell, they wouldn't understand customer service if they tripped over it.

I knew CN didn't ... but only because Dad worked for the railroad until 1966

Why would anyone born and raised in Calgary suddenly assume that the she should make decisions based on rules or laws in Europe?

If you were going to travel by train with a dog, wouldn't you at least inquire about it ... find out if there's a fee for the animal?
