  1. RE: Vassy’s text screenshot… What’s the difference if Danielle Smith said “piss off” over the phone/via e-mail/on camera as opposed to a text message? Smith knew Kapelos was contacting her as a reporter for Global News. It wasn’t in the context of them being BFFs planning a Sunday brunch.

    Also, Smith should be savvy enough to know that either a “no comment” or “off the record” would have been enough for Vassy, or any other reporter, to back off. If Vassy Kapelos would have blurted out something a source told her was “off the record”, no source would ever talk to her again.

    1. I suppose the main difference is that if it were on the phone, it would have been much more difficult to post online. I would bet that on camera she wouldn’t have said anything like that. Email? Who knows!
