The fact Wilde and Bird are raising the questions at all is indicative of something. I don't think it's something you throw out there lightly.
That's exactly the point that some are missing. Molson being the owner of a business worth hundreds of millions does not want something like this to snowball. The last thing he should want is someone in a media scrum to ask the following: "PK, there's been some articles written recently alleging that perhaps you're being singled out by management because of the colour of you skin. Would you care to comment?" That's not fair to PK. Especially if he doesn't dismiss it as anything but ludicrous.
