At a top-secret meeting of the Order of Canada selection committee recently:
"Look, this Henry Morgentaler thing could really generate some outrage. You know that, normally, we would never give this award to someone that controversial. It's just so polarizing. A lot of folks are going to be absolutely pissed! Are you sure we wanna do this?"
"Well, um, here's a wild idea -- what if we just not care about what everyone thinks, and only care about the opinions of people who aren't drooling, mouth-breathing, batshit-crazy, Bible-whomping fetus fetishists?"
A few seconds of quiet contemplation descends over the conference room ...
"Yeah, that works for me."
"Same here. Let's go with that."
Afterwards, cake was served.
