The blog also discussed this girl's campaign to become a Canadian citizen based upon her "special services" to Canada. Services like this, during the ice dance team competition in Sochi.
Keep it up Meryl and Charlie, from a loyal Canadian, Piper Gilles.
Piper's loyalty to anything but Piper seems a bit suspect, it will surprise nobody to hear. During the opening ceremonies she had this tweet:
Seriously, she had to SHARE. Texting wouldn't do. She had to let the world know that the Canadian team's entrance had no meaning without Piper. At least, no meaning to her.
THIS is the girl up whose ass Skate Canada has been living for two years. Cheering on Meryl and Charlie in freaking SOCHI. Days later, she gave Tessa and Scott lip service (wonder what prompted that) but this is the first thing out of her twitter. Not just you give me goosebumps, but KEEP IT UP. Keep winning, Meryl and Charlie.
Yes, the blog and others were so so bad, so so mean, to object to fast tracking Piper Gilles to Canadian citizenship, leap frogging her over the backs of would-be citizens who were logging their second year of wait time (or more). The blog pointed out that any justification for accelerating her application was exceedingly thin - Canada was and is lousy with talented, competitive, already Canadian ice dance talent, and adding one more hardly merited categorizing her as providing a "special service." When Piper spoke to the merits of her application, she argued that she also loved Canada very very very very much. She doesn't even celebrate American holidays anymore! But she will publicly celebrate the American ice dance team being set up to rob her erstwhile teammates, Canadians Tessa and Scott.
We'll keep this in mind, Piper.
