In a move that has baffled many and delighted others, leading French Canadian pundit Jaques Levesque today referred to The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith as “a human topiary”. Although the remark was quickly dismissed by many newspaper columnists as “wholly uncalled for”, other pundits were quick jump to Levesque’s defense. “Everyone needs a good trimming now and then, eh?” noted a fellow pundit who wished to remain unnamed.
