Fans defend PEI radio host fired for ‘inappropriate’ content

More than 2,500 fans of a Prince Edward Island radio host have signed a petition to bring him back after he was fired for saying “inappropriate” things on air.

Joee Adams told the PEI Guardian that his former employer, Q93, fired him after a segment in which he asked listeners things people shouldn’t do in public.

Adams listed some answers live on air, which included “shaving your private parts at a PTA meeting” and “watching porn in a library.”

Adams said the radio station had warned him before and that the segment was likely the last straw.

Fans launched the petition shortly after Adams announced his firing on Facebook. Supporters took to the petition’s comments section to defend Adams.

As of early Monday afternoon, 2,843 people had signed the petition.

Petition calls for U.S. to give strip of land to Canada

A new petition is calling on the United States government to transfer a piece of land technically in Minnesota to Canada.

The petition, which was launched on the “We the People” section of the White House website, claims the area, known as the Northwest Angle, only became part of the U.S. because of a surveying error.

The area is connected by land to Manitoba and is the only part of the U.S. other than Alaska that sits above the 49th parallel.

The petition’s author argued that the area’s 120 residents are native to Canadian soil, as Benjamin Franklin and British representatives relied on a flawed map from 1755 when they negotiated Canada’s borders.

“Make America great by correcting this critical survey error,” the petition said.

The White House responds to petitions on its website if they amass at least 100,000 signatures.

As of the end of Wednesday, the petition had garnered more than 1,000 signatures, but it will need to reach its goal by Jan. 29 in order to trigger a response.
