A councillor in Chateauguay says he's sorry for insulting Ginette Reno on Facebook.
Shortly after the Quebec superstar sang the national anthem at the Bell Centre before Game 3 of the Habs-Bruins series, Pierre Gloutnay typed out a message on Facebook: "Ostie qu’les Amaricains doivent se demander c’est qui la grosse qui a de la misère à chanter." ("Damn, the 'Muricans have to ask themselves who the fatty is who has trouble singing.")
Gloutnay has since taken down the post, and admitted it was a bad joke which was just meant to be provocative humour.
Nonetheless, a Facebook group has been created calling for Gloutnay's resignation. As of 11 a.m., the page has 873 members, and counting.
