Loathed by the left, lauded by the right, Sue-Ann Levy, the self-described “shit disturber” covering City Hall for the Toronto Sun, has become one of the city’s most divisive voices. Notoriously antagonistic on Twitter, where she gleefully skewers the anti-Ford camp, Levy has made a living courting controversy. She wouldn’t have it any other way.
@SueAnnLevy @MargaretAtwood When was the last time you took the subway Ms. Megs? Now you’re an expert on the TTC?
@MargaretAtwood @SueAnnLevy: Do your research, learn to read, address folks by their names, & cite sources for your insults. If you’re serious, that is.
@SueAnnLevy Firefighters in a knot about my column 2day. Q: Why are police and EMS not seen posing with a bevy of blondes? A: Cuz they’re too busy.
@Chris_Linton @SueAnnLevy Normally I’d be offended, except you’ve already shown you have no idea what we are paid to do, and never will.
@ SueAnnLevy @Chris_Linton Boo Hoo. Caught cozying up to fawning females instead of doing what you’re paid to do.
@ SueAnnLevy @WMcKeeL3888Boo hoo. Firefighters not only thin-skinned but have inflated egos. Instead of posing with fawning females, do your jobs.
TTC CHAIR KAREN STINTZ
@ SueAnnLevy Ruth, aka Ms. Stintz, proves what a wimp she is on Undercover Boss by crying at the end over being tired from the work. #pathetic
CITY HALL DECORUM
@goldsbie Barber was booted from the City Hall beat in 2009, because the G&M’s editor-in-chief thought the whole bureau was too sympathetic to Miller.
@ SueAnnLevy @goldsbie Johnny likes to revise history. Or was it cuz Barber peed in Gallery plants to mock Ford & screamed obscenities at Lastman?
@goldsbie @SueAnnLevy Barber, not being an animal, has very much denied this. You’re going to have to proffer some sort of evidence.
@ SueAnnLevy @goldsbie I was there and saw it for myself, as did my colleagues at the Sun. Ditto for his angry obscenities at Mel Lastman. #angermgmt?
COUNCILLOR JOSH MATLOW
@JoshMatlow NOTICE: Town Hall Meeting on Tenants’ Priorities hosted by Councillor Josh Matlow – Make your voice heard!
@ SueAnnLevy @JoshMatlow Why should yr constits make voices hrd? You just do what u want anyway. Evidence-based decision making? What crap. #hugeego
COUNCILLOR PETER MILCZYN
@ SueAnnLevy @reporterdonpeat Cllr Milczyn says Doug Ford speaks before he thinks. At least he has “balls.” And you Peter? #spinelesswimp
TORONTO STAR REPORTER DANIEL DALE
@ SueAnnLevy @ddale8The Star already did a very good job …actually you do a very good job everyday of making fun of the mayor. #highschoolmentality
GLOBE AND MAIL COLUMNIST MARCUS GEE
@ SueAnnLevy Media apologist @MarcusGee tries to smear me for smearing his beloved Pammy. Predictable. Perhaps try some real research next time.
@sol_chrom @SueAnnLevy Actually, his twitter handle is @marcusbgee. Perhaps try some real research next time.
@dtopping Hey @SueAnnLevy! What do you think about this thing I wrote about a thing you wrote? bit.ly/uXAWhW
@ SueAnnLevy @dtopping Typical lefty BS. Attack messenger and medium instd of asking why pop mags and DVDs avail at budget-challenged TPL. So predictable
@SueAnnLevy I wasn’t attacking—I was fact-checking. There’s exactly one subscription to Playboy in the whole system, and it’s on microfilm.
@ SueAnnLevy @dtopping If you did as much work trying to find solutions to budget crisis as “fact checking” what real stories you could write. Imagine.
