I know you must be busy these days. You must wonder why the world hates you.
I want you to know I loved your show. You were a genius.
They say that you hurt people, but I say there are lots of hurtful people. That’s not news.
So, why do they hate you so much?
I know I’m only 15, but I think I know.
If we can’t trust Jian Ghomeshi, who can we trust?
Lots of rich powerful people don’t care about the world; they have caused immeasurable damage to the planet, but we always knew they would, so we don’t really hate them.
So what did you do, Jian? You destroyed our trust in the world. You pretended you cared but you didn’t and that hurt us.
You represented civility and honour.
You represented a distinct society – polite, kind, respectful – that is supposed to make Canada unique in the world.
You were our national hero.
In a world gone mad, if we can’t trust Jian Ghomeshi, who can we trust?
That’s why you hurt me.
