Adam Brazeau of TC Media Seaway News Pulls a Mini Jian Ghomeshi Day of Anti Sexual Assault Rally in Cornwall Ontario

CORNWALL Ontario – Adam Brazeau is a young man that is a journalist for TC Media owned Seaway News in Cornwall Ontario.    He’s covers ground that editor Todd Lihou doesn’t as opposed to won’t.

Last night, before he appeared at the SASS Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event today he initiated a conversation with a former student he attended Journalism school with and pulled a mini Jian Ghomeshi online.

We decided not to run the unedited screen cap of their chat as we do have some young people who read CFN…well lots of young people and I’m sure they know the words we blanked out, but I digress.

We have the unedited originals of the entire conversation.

The issue of course is that the young woman felt doubly victimized seeing Mr. Brazeau in his red pumps and felt he was an utter hypocrite.

So we tussled about her coming forward.  I felt that people like Jian Ghomeshi and Bill Cosby would not have so many alleged victims of women like her stepped forward and told their story and the compromise was that I interviewed her and agreed to leave her name out although Mr. Brazeau clearly would know who she is.

We have sent him a message giving him a chance to tell his side of the story.

 

ab EDITOD

Mr. Brazeau’s words are in the grey boxes above.
CFN 
How did it make you feel when you read his comment to you?
VICTIM

Like he felt he had was above me. Especially with the “lol”.
CFN 
Had he ever spoke with you in a sexual nature before?
VICTIM

Nope. Never. We haven’t spoken in years. He struck up a conversation last night and that’s where it ended.
CFN 
So he initiated a chat with you? Any idea why seeing as he spoke so offensively to you?
VICTIM
The chat didn’t start that way. Was friendly. The most of it was comparing dating horror stories.
CFN 
Did he apologize?  And when was the last time you’d chatted or spoken with him previously?
VICTIM
No. He said “lol”, two question marks, and then removed me from Fb.  
I don’t think we have spoken since college. If we did it would have just been in passing.
CFN 
What was more disturbing? The actual comment or his lol after?  His laughing?
VICTIM
A combination of both of those as well as not apologizing.
To just silently remove yourself from something, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
CFN 
Why do you think it’s so hard for women to go public with behavior like this?
Why are you choosing to not go public?
VICTIM
Because it’s enough to endure it. The constant comments, the cat calls, the invites..
If I feel harassed just walking down the street and chatting with “friends” online.
It’s really very hard to take that negative attention and put it out there.. and know that you’ll probably get even more negative attention back.
CFN 
Looking at the Jian Ghomeshi and Bill Cosby cases that were so much in the headlines this past year don’t you think that if more women stepped out of the shadows sooner that less would be victims to this sort of behavior or worse?
VICTIM
Why do we have to be victims at all? It’s really not very hard to keep words and actions to yourself.
It’s not hard to be respectful.
CFN 
That’s true, but isn’t there a price to pay to protect others? For example if we didn’t write about this maybe this person might do it again? Maybe there is a whole group of women that he’s typed or spoken to in this manner before you who if they had spoken up you wouldn’t have become a victim?
VICTIM
I wonder if some men taking women fighting back as more of a challenge.. but I didn’t study psychology.
CFN 
??? Can you clarify that one please?
VICTIM
Sexual assault has little to do with sex, it’s more to do with power.
And I wonder if maybe some men, with those urges, see women taking a stand, and finding their voices, and basically taking it as an invite to overpower them.
CFN 
Isn’t that more of a reason to stand up in situations like this?
VICTIM
It is, but I’m just not comfortable giving my name. I already feel violated with how I was made to feel.
If there are other women who have been made to feel that way through his words and actions, they can make the same choice of giving their names or not.. everything is a choice in life.
He chose to conduct himself in a certain manner, which is in turn his consequences to deal with whatever they may be.
CFN 
So what triggered or inspired you to contact CFN and share this experience?
VICTIM
I like your style.
VICTIM
Whatever people may say about your ethics, you do get people talking.
CFN 
Um, our ethics are pretty much unimpeachable.  What do you think Mr. Brazeau would say to this?
What do you think his explanation would be of your conversation?
VICTIM
Regardless of what his explanation is, it’s just an excuse. I wouldn’t have a clue what he would say..
I would hope he would apologize for his actions, in the very least.
CFN 
Last question of the interview.  What would you truly like to say to him after what occurred last night?
VICTIM
That he is a hypocrite,.. with how he spoke to me, and then taking part of a rally to help end violent against women… that’s basically a giant “lol” in the face of every woman.
CFN 
Was that what triggered this? Adam being in the Rally?
VICTIM
Not directly. It was trigger by how he portrays himself as this well to do good guy.
The rally was just a huge ironic example of.
CFN has reviewed the entire chat as delivered by the victim.
Here is the blurb about the Walk a Mile in Her Shoe event today.
Men of our community are being asked to “Walk A Mile In Her Shoes” and help end violence against women by supporting Sexual Assault Support Services for Women of SDG&A (SASS). Men will raise money for SASS by getting pledges for their walk in high heels down a portion of Water Street to the delight and amusement of all! Shoes will be provided. Everyone is encouraged to come out in support of this fun community event to raise money and awareness for the services SASS provides in our community. There will be a trophy for the “Top Walker,” “Top Team,” and prizes for “Best Strut,” “Coolest Catwalk,” and “Most Flamboyant Footwork.” There will also be a barbecue on site with proceeds going to SASS as well. If you’re Man enough to walk in her shoes contact SASS to register and receive a participant’s package at 613 932 1755 ext. 21
or email special-events@sassforwomen.ca

What do you think dear CFN viewers?  You can post your comments below.
Editors note to Mr. Brazeau:  Not all Cornwall women are only into the bling as you shared with the victim.   There are some intelligent, hot and classy women in our community…or at least in the counties….

Edited to add this nugget from the same conversation where Mr. Brazeau admits he wants to father a daughter and has issues with Cornwall women.

What is swag? It is like the HPV?

Seems like a non event to me. He starts taking dirty, and she doesn’t want any of it. Then he stops. What am i missing here? Women are growing the movement of MGTOW(men going their own way) because of this type of thing. Always the victim, so helpless but has the power to ruin a mans name for merely getting hit on.

Marc Houde

Exactly what I was thinking Jerry. Is this any different than a guy in a bar hitting on a woman with suggestive language and when she says ‘no’ he stops and moves on? The guy was crass but was it sexual harassment?

Nicole

Jamie. If you are so moved by women’s rights… why is the Paleo princess bent over the counter to show her cleavage? Also, why is the caption for May 25 “had a craving and this recipe hit more than just her spot”. Why not ‘hit the spot’ as the saying goes?

It is sexual harassment if she didn’t say “hey talk dirty to me.” Victim blaming, victim shaming and deflecting from the real issue are the top reasons why both women and men don’t report sexual harassment and/or sexual violence. It’s disappointing to see if happen here in these comments. If anything comes from this, people should at the very least take the opportunity to educate themselves about the issue through SASS. They are a great agency that does amazing work and people should support this very evident prevalent issue in this community!

Wow!

Im not one of these politically correct people, but in my day you never went to a bar and told a girl you would chew on her genitalia cause she was attractive. This pervert should be fired forthwith.

Jerry

Jennifer Jay, you are correct in saying there is so, so much sexual harassment and sexual abuse. However, when allegations and accusations like this story are put out there as “harassment”, It makes it look like women cry foul over every single little thing that they find offensive. Are we supposed to give national attention every time some slob of a man says “nice ass”? He clearly was not pressuring her. And i’m sure she is loving being referred to as “victim” in this story. Look up MGTOW, and see why more men aren’t holding doors open for women.

I’ve known Adam for over 10 years. He has never been anything but kind and respectful. The only thing I find distasteful about this article Jamie, is that you pick and chose tiny portions of a one hour conversation to slander Adam. A fellow journalist (OH WAIT! Only one of you is a real journalist!) You failed to post the entire convo – just the part where Adam said what he said. It seems like a pretty random comment to make if the ‘victim’ wasn’t going in that direction (flirting) to begin with. It seems completely out of context. And,… Read more »

That is where you are wrong again Jamie – haven’t spoken to Adam at all and did not get any other info other than your posted article. The only FACTS I have are the ones posted here which are not ‘facts’ – but snipets of a private conversation. It’s a 100% fact that we are not seeing the entire convo – THAT you cannot argue with. It’s a 100% fact that the ‘victim’ was so traumatized and upset and she continued to chat with him for almost an hour – that also you cannot argue with or dispute. And thanks… Read more »

Jamie, you seem to be a white knight. Coming to the defense of any woman just for the fact that she has a vag. Tell me this. Why did she come to YOU with this? Also, what is in the convo that is worse than what you showed, that young ones can’t see? Remember when Frost said you had advances on him? Didn’t it feel terrible that every one thought something of you when there was actually nothing there. And by nothing, i mean nothing worth taking legal or even civil action. Do you thing frost is so weak that… Read more »

My comment is in regards to the length of the conversation. The 2 screen shots you posted show clearly that the conversation in question started at 315 (AM??) and the second screen shot shows it continuing at 4:05 (PM??) that’s a LONG conversation if I can tell time correctly

I understand what you are saying Jamie. Please, I encourage you to post the whole conversation so that we can have the entire picture. All he said at the end was that “Cornwall women want swag”. Hardly an attack on anyone. Then it appears that she was saying something about men in Cornwall. Please, edit the nasty stuff like you already did to some of of it and post the entire thing. She wants the story out, you have the evidence and us readers want to have all of the information. I’m a long time reader and supporter of yours.… Read more »

Regardless of what I say, there isn’t going to be a grand moment where people against this story, and the facts presented in it, are going to stop and say “this is wrong”. I shouldn’t have to defend myself for the actions of someone else. Which is unfortunately a sad truth that lots of men and women have to face when choosing to take a stand, or just stay silent. I find some of the comments beyond ridiculous, and it makes me wonder how far someone has to cross a line before it is considered an issue for them, and… Read more »

Don’t feel bad Joellen. I was named after my great great great uncle, Furtz A Bootbomb, who used to clean the public toilets at the Eiffel Tower in Paris from 1893 until 1903.

This is going to be an unpopular opinion but here it goes anyways – I’m a woman, I consider myself a feminist and although I don’t proclaim this to anyone I am a rape survivor. I’m one of many… This article is drop of water that has made the glass overflow for me. I think there comes a point where we have to call on common sense to prevail. A whole article plumbing the depths of a woman’s victimhood because a guy said something kind of gross and inappropriate to her over text? Are you kidding me? Look – was… Read more »

Just to clarify – publish the fact that the guy acted like a douche if you MUST – although I find this sort of public shaming very distasteful and medieval only MAYBE justifiable if the person being shamed has so much influence and power that the media shaming is the only way to get through to them (the media shaming is David’s proverbial slingshot and the person is a “Goliath” of sorts)… Just please don’t go around calling the recipient of ONE gross comment a “victim” asking her twenty million questions about how it made her feel. For one thing… Read more »

I apologize, I have just read the comment left by the commenter Adam’s Victim who I believe is the person in the story and she does actually have a point – something she said has changed my mind and made me think my comment might have been hasty and intolerant to her point of view and I apologize – it was this: “I would have understood completely if he had apologized rather than leaving it at “lol”. It’s also very understandable for him to feel violated, and I am honestly happy that he isn’t going to let one mistake break… Read more »

I find it sad that MEN still don’t seem to “get it”
You have the Canadian Army trying to silence a report on sexual harassment
A lady giving a lecture to our future leaders at Kingston Military College came away feeling Violated.
Four Hundred RCMP Female officers so upset they are launching a class action
Ghomeshi got away with going after Female Journalism students for years “because he had rating’s
Instead of playing the victim Mr Brazeau should send this woman an apology and be SMART enough NOT to have explicit chats on an open forum

Samatha Hyde
Guest
Hello Jamie, : ) Thanks for not making me feel worse. I feel a bit embarrassed about my initial reaction – I called for common sense and reason and yet I wrote my comment without thinking it through properly and under the influence of strong emotion. I shouldn’t be throwing my story around to try and say that I have some kind of claim on what constitutes victimhood and what doesn’t… Having reflected on the issue I can obviously see that there is a slippery slope involved when we start making decisions about what is and isn’t traumatic enough to… Read more »
