Extra, Extra: Captain John, Jan Wong, and Some Nacho Chips

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.

  • According to the Star, officials “are quietly coming to terms” with the fact that “Captain” John Letnik will never be able to pay the accumulated taxes and rent on his increasingly decrepit restaurant boat, and that his debt may need to be forgiven.
  • An arbitrator has found that journalist Jan Wong breached a confidentiality agreement with her former employer, the Globe and Mail, when she wrote about being fired from the paper in her 2012 memoir. Wong has been ordered to pay back the money she won in a wrongful dismissal settlement.
  • Apparently, people really love the official Doritos Ontario Twitter account.

    You know, that arbitrator ruling is REALLY persnickety.

    Not once did she disclose how much the settlement was. Nothing in her book mentioned the terms.

    Next time the Globe talks about freedom of speech or freedom of the press, I’ll just type in Jan Wong and see how long it takes their censors to take my post down.

    I agree, OgtheDim. I am contemplating cancelling my Globe subscription.
