CBC ombudsman, Esther Enkin, posted the results of her investigation into a complaint against a column in which Neil Macdonald likened Republicans unto Miley Cyrus. The 1,300-word (!) review is worth a read, but for those of you who need to know in a rush, here’s the important part:

“It is true the word describes something sexual, what might be considered an obscene gesture, but it is not a swear word or obscene in and of itself.”

Our long national nightmare is over. Happy twerking.

Remember to follow the Review and its masthead on Twitter.
