David Suzuki, Dirty Old Man « NoFrakkingConsensus
For a day’s worth of his time, Suzuki billed this publicly-funded, not-for-profit school $30,000 plus tax.

But here’s where things get creepy. Someone – either Suzuki or the school – thought he needed “bodyguards” to escort him from one location to another. But those bodyguards had to be students. Moreover, they had to be attractive, female students. Really.
The grownups at John Abbott College sincerely believed that David Suzuki required the company of attractive, 17 to 19-year-old women during his visit. The dean’s secretary appears to have personally inspected them beforehand. Moreover, Suzuki (as well as others) expressed an opinion about how these young women should be attired.
