Everybody says things that will be remembered. Some things said are not so fondly remembered. Here are three quotes from Canadians that made the infamous list:
"This just proves what a nation of pussies we are."
— Don Cherry on news that Canada's murder rate is at its lowest since the 1960s.
"I don't know why we'd need so many more prisons when the crooks seem so happy in the Senate."
— NDP Leader Jack Layton during the leaders' debate.
"This fellow said, ‘I was so depressed last night, thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, social security, retirement funds, etc., I called a suicide hotline and got a call centre in Pakistan. When I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck."’
— Newfoundland and Labrador Lt.-Gov. John Crosbie tells a joke while swearing in provincial cabinet ministers.
