    I dunno man, sounds like she just doesn't feel like she can voice her opinion but she is blaming it on the "hyper-sensitive social media environment".
    Why not blame them but still voice your opinion and not care? It's not like she is for white supremacy or a pedo.
    Not really different from a comedian, except she's never funny or as interesting.

    I don't mind her decision for stepping off the platform, but I do have an issue with the way she worded her reasoning.
    I used to help run a few FB groups, and I quit pretty quickly too. I was threatened physically (I don't care much about that), but, they tried to drag my job into it for simply moderating a community group and that was the big straw that broke the camel's back for me. I don't care if you agree with me or not, but talk it out. The SJW standard MO has been that if you find something offensive, the first line of attack is a person's ability to provide for themselves and their families. I get what she is saying, and don't blame her one bit. I have pulled WAY back on social media and what not. It's just not worth it.

    But that's just me.

    Met her once at a conference, I think she's pretty intelligent overall. Also came across as someone who would gladly throw you out a window if it meant advancing their career.

    It seems to me as well, that she is going to try a return to politics.

    Or maybe she got shut down internally at the radio station and decided she couldn't work there any more.

    Do people really have that short of a memory ? I certainly won't vote for her...

    I don’t need a lot of reasons to dislike someone. But she really put a nail in the coffin of my opinion of her with the floor crossing and what the resulting political fallout did to our province.

    I don’t need reasons to like or dislike her after she did that.

    All the people who hate Kenney as Premier so much, should really blame Smith.

    Sounds like a prude but in the professional sense.

    So, like what kind of topics really? I can't think of one that would "destroy your career" unless you were against science or not backing your views with real substance.

    I know it's not that simple as I may be making it out to be, but at the same time I don't really get it either.
    Working for a media outlet you have to toe the line. Maybe she had enough and wants to break free.

    That being said I hope she is smart enough not to make a return to politics.

    I dont disagree with her stance nor would I argue with anyone who's concerned about freedom of speech or the mob mentality. If people are afraid to speak their mind thats a major problem.

    I'm genuinely curious what topics were too sensitive to discuss on radio.

    If Danielle's goal is to get back into politics then getting off the radio makes sense. Look how ryan jespersen lost his job recently. He called a city employee a monkey or chimpanzee and he was fired that day.

    Oh I see, I understand how you meant that now. Thank you

    I can't say I'm surprised and I agree with a lot of her statement. I wouldn't do that job so I'm not critical when someone else doesn't want to do it either. The mob mentality / cancel culture has gotten so far out of hand in Western society that I would have no interest in any position that is in the public eye. You'd have to be a fool to want to run for public office in this day and age and that is why we only have low-quality people across the board in all levels of government from Ottawa all the way down to your local school board trustee.

    I don't care where she's going, I think her husband is a lawyer so maybe they've got enough money where they're going to just fuck off to an island somewhere and be done with the shit-stain public life is.

    Edit: Husband is a chef by the looks of things.

    I’ve been all too aware that in many nations of the world it is against the law to speak truth to power. It can be dangerous. Sadly, in the last year I’ve noticed there are times where it has become perilous here too.
    Reading between the lines, I'm going to guess that Corus asked her to not spout off (or invite her listeners to spout off) about the recent US events, and she took it personally.

    She's stated she's not running for mayor.
    Re: Ryan Jespersen.
    Holy fuck! I can't believe that and I didn't hear. All the way back in September. Wow, that's ridiculous!
    Sounds like the real story may be how does Mike Nickel have so much power? Man, the municipal politics in Edmonton were a mess and I don't miss it.
    Although I think it's not far off in Calgary...

    There is zero chance of D Smith as Calgary Mayor. Both Edmonton and Calgary continue to lean from Centre-Left to farther left, municipally.

    That's a good take. You definitely don't want spotlight on you on this one.

    can we go back to the question at hand. What sort of topics would someone be too afraid of to speak about on the radio? Would be great to hear this answered by Danielle wherever she goes.

    We are all screwed if we think this is acceptable.

    I think Tik Tok got it. I have never seen companies acted so quick to deplatform a group since Al-Qaeda posted beheadings on Youtube.

    I don't know her or her show but I can guess going off what's in the news lately. She probably wants to offer her support for Joe Biden and Corus, being right-wing as the media typically is, won't let her.
