This (2006) post from Worthwhile Canadian Initiatives, quoting the Globe and Mail, left me laughing and crying at the same time. It's hard to pick out a representative line, because the whole article is such a beautifully coherent farrago of idiocy. So I'll stick to quoting Stephen Gordon's reaction:

[Note for clarity: it's the Globe and Mail I'm laughing at, not Worthwhile Canadian Initiatives!]
