Michelle Josef writes us about being fired by Prairie Oyster

SooToday.com – By Mr. Ed

SooToday.com received the following note this morning from Michelle Josef, a former drummer with Prairie Oyster, regarding an advance piece we ran prior to the band’s Sault Ste. Marie appearance last night.


I am not sure who Mr. Ed is but I would like to comment on the review of the new Prairie Oyster album that appeared on the SooToday.com page dated Oct. 26/06.

I am Michelle Josef, the person mentioned in the article.

I don’t quite know what the point of mentioning me and issues with Oyster was all about.

I hope that it wasn’t meant to trivialize what happened or to treat it flippantly.

My gender transition was the result of years of anguish and personal torment.
