It's all over social media but I'm not sure you've all heard about the deplorable things he said and how she reacted.

Brian Sklar, best known for his skills as a musician, has strong ties to the NDP.  He, in fact, is a former NDP candidate who has, at times, worked for the party.  In an exchange on social media, Sklar wrote some absolutely awful things.

His target was Conservative Party of Canada Senator Denise Batters.  Sklar said, and I quote, "Interesting coming from a Harper troll who is only sitting in the Red Chamber because her husband, the MP, committed suicide...Take a hike, Denise.  Only Tory Trolls take you seriously."

Among the comments In a terse reply, Senator Batters said "...my husband's suicide is not a topic of discussion for you to score cheap and misinformed political points...Take your vitriol elsewhere."

I used the word "deplorable" to describe Sklar's behaviour.  Others are using much stronger language.
