Eric exits Aug. 15

Eric Margolis will say goodbye to his Sun Media readers Aug. 15, not with a full farewell column, but with a tagline bidding adieu after 27 years.

"My last column will be August 15," Margolis tells TSF a week after disclosing Sun Media has decided not to renew his contract.

Asked how he will make his exit, he said:

"I had not planned a farewell column, just a brief note at the end of the column. I've been flooded with e-mails from angry Sun readers who plan to stop buying the Sun. Nearly all are well aware of the reasons for this termination. Word certainly gets around."

Those sentiments reflect the feelings of many of the TSF readers who have posted comments.


  1. Buh BYE. Don't let the door smack your rump on the way out.

    Those "angry Sun readers" will be happy with the extra Sun Girl or Boy in the space vacated by his column. Life doesn't end because of this, people.

  2. Anonymous,
    You are a disgrace to Canada. If you are willing to be forced fed the drivel that qualifies as news that you get from the Sun newspaper chain, then you shouldn't be given the decision to get out of bed in the mornings let alone participate in Canadian society. I feel sorry for your lack of initiative to find out what is really happening in the world. Eric Margolis and Gwynne Dyer are the only ones in this chain that provide the truth.

  3. Alrighty then, if you don't agree with Rod you don't get a say in anything. There's a great leader to follow.

    It's interesting that Eric Margolis is bitter about not having his column contract renewed. Whenever Margolis was on a television news program, gave a speech in any city where there was a Sun property or even on the dust jackets of his book, he never mentioned his association with Sun Media. He was ashamed of it. Why should the Sun continue to acknowledge this paranoid conspiracy theorist when he has spent 27 years not acknowledging the Suns?
    I say good riddance to Margolis who is more wrong than right in his analysis anyway.
