OTTAWA — Turns out Sun News reporters aren't the only ones environmental guru David Suzuki refuses to speak to.
After coverage of the network being barred from a media-friendly event Tuesday evening, Sun News was inundated with e-mails from others who have been shut out after questioning the celebrity environmentalist.
One came from former Ottawa mayor Larry O'Brien, who said after seeing the environmentalist in action, his vision of Suzuki was shattered.
"David invited himself to my office for lunch; [he demanded] no bottled water and only fresh salmon," O'Brien said. "He wanted to talk to me about my position of converting waste to energy in an environmentally appropriate manner."
Suzuki didn't like the idea — he's said publicly he doesn't support incineration — and had a low tolerance for O'Brien's not conceding to Suzuki's perspective.
"He said he'd never been so badly treated in his life and stormed out," O'Brien said.
