TO Sun Dec 7, 2012. Mary Trent says she was shocked by the behaviour of the Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market Santa Claus as her son approached him. After Santa arrived a half hour late for his appearance, he proceeded to insult the boy’s red plaid coat.

“The first thing he tells my son is, ‘Oh, you look like Paul Bunyan,’ ” she said. “Really? Is that appropriate?

“Then he said, ‘Oh, you’re wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs tuque, you shouldn’t be wearing that, they suck.’ At that point, I took my son and told him we should go, Santa isn’t being very good today.”

Trent said her son was inconsolable and cried all the way home to Mississauga.


Trent’s post prompted an online apology Thursday from the organizers via Facebook. Mathew Rosenblatt, creator of the European-style event, confirmed to the Toronto Sun that Saint Nick had been fired.

“The person that had spoken those words is no longer at the Toronto Christmas Market and will not be there in the future,” Rosenblatt said.


Well, if you believe in Santa, you'll want to believe the Leafs don't suck too, right?

Bad Santa!

Fair enough a mall Santa's job is to live a lie, how dare he tell the truth.

It's the morals behind allowing your kids to visit Santa that I'm more concerned with.

Kids need to toughen up by learning the truth early on.. Kudos to Santa, trying to build a stronger future.

I don't trust Santa's opinion on hockey anyway. He's is Dutch, right?

What do they know about hockey? He just got lucky on that guess.

Go back to long track speed skating, buddy.

I'm guessing flannel and early onset facial hair had a part to play too.

The kid may not have known that Santa isn't real, but he sure as hell already knew that the Leafs suck.
Even preschoolers know that.

If this boy didn't, Santa did him a favour and saved him a Christmas wish that would have been wasted on a pathetic Phil Kessel jersey - one he would have wound up throwing away in a year or two when he wised up a little.

What's the issue here?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I can understand a child believing in Santa Claus....
what I can't understand is how anyone could believe in the Leafs...

At least he didn't tell the kid there is no Santa. Or try to explain why his mom was pushing him to sit in some strange dude's lap.

Besides, everyone knows Santa's a Minnesota fan. He likes how they look like really tall elves in those red and green uniforms.

The least Santa could have done is give this poor kid his very own paper bag that he could have customized, enabling him to fit in with all the other little Leafs fans...

Another thing that got me thinking, is she trying to blame her kid crying on Santa saying he looked like Paul Bunyan and that the Leafs suck?
Pretty sure it's cause you Santa teased him lady.

Just a lot of smart ass comments above as usual I see.............sounds like hardly a parent amongst the lot of you.

As for the Leafs jibes, why shouldn't the kid like the Leafs..............after all this forum has quite a few adult Canucks fans on it (including me) and the Canucks have NEVER won a cup.............what does that say about us?

Well done to the Mum/Mom she was doing what any decent parent would have done.


Oh I forgot...........lol
