Krystal off the air
By BRIAN HAYES Court Reporter
Radio News 95.7 host Andrew Glenn Krystal was out of his element Friday and is off the air for now.
Rather than being behind a microphone for his daily Maritime Morning talk show, he was on the prisoner’s bench in Halifax provincial court.
With his dishevelled hair and the laces removed from his black and white running shoes, the 47-year-old Halifax man looked nervous when brought in from the downstairs cells for his arraignment for allegedly disobeying a police order to stay away from alcohol.
Mr. Krystal agreed to the condition after being charged with domestic assault and mischief about three weeks ago.
He is accused of assaulting a Halifax woman and damaging her property. Court records didn’t indicate Mr. Krystal’s relationship to the woman.
Mr. Krystal was released Friday on condition he have no contact with the woman, stay at least 50 metres from her home and refrain from consuming drugs or alcohol.
He is slated to be back in court Feb. 20 to enter a plea to the assault, mischief and breach charges.
Mr. Krystal has worked at 95.7 since the Rogers Communications talk radio station first went on the air last October. He previously hosted talk radio programs at CFMJ in Toronto and CKTB in St. Catharines, Ont.
"We were advised by Andrew this morning that these charges were to be laid," station vice-president and general manager Jim Hamm said in an e-mail Friday.
"We are in the process of collecting information on this situation and that includes meeting with Andrew early next week. Until that conversation occurs, Andrew will remain off the air."
After studying international relations and strategic studies and English literature at the University of Toronto and producing television shows, Mr. Krystal began his radio broadcasting career in Toronto on Talk 640. He later re-launched the station as MOJO Radio, before moving on to top-rated News/talk 1010 CFRB in Toronto.
He is now host of Maritime Morning’s on News 95.7 in Halifax, News 91.9 Moncton and News 88.9 in Saint John.
The station’s staff biography noted that Mr. Krystal’s broad range of interests lent itself to guests as wide-ranging as former U.S. secretary of state Henry Kissinger to legendary musician James Brown.
Mr. Krystal gained national attention in January 2006 when headlines described a heated exchange on his show between Nova Scotia Conservative MP Peter MacKay and Nova Scotia NDP Leader Alexa McDonough, during which Mr. MacKay told Ms. McDonough: "I think you better stick to your knitting."
He gained further attention the same month for comments made during a brief appearance on CTV Newsnet, when he told fellow election panellist Charles Alder, who is the grandson of Auschwitz victims, that Mr. Alder would have voted for Adolf Hitler if the German dictator had run as a Conservative.
Mr. Krystal’s comments sparked outrage among Canadian conservative bloggers and he was branded "sick" and "despicable" by the popular Bourque Newswatch website.
He later clarified his comments in an e-mail to a Canadian political blogger: "I said that Alder would vote for Satan or Hilter as long as he was a Conservative. Blind, in other words. . . . I wouldn’t vote for Mussolini or Hitler either. I might try Satan. He’s the devil I know."
I got my recorder with my favorite songs and away I go!!!
I made the long walk last night and once on the Westmorland Bridge?
It was windy and cold and the first flashback that came to one of my ADHD minds was this site-
The guy is NUTS!!!!!!
For you newcomers? He’s the Sergeant-at-Arms at the New Brunswick Legislature. He banned me from the Legislature for life.
This man has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of New Brunswick taxpayer’s money. The amount could be well over one million dollars!!!!
His security is so ridiculous that it makes me laugh such as these foolish barricades.
I might add that Dan Bussieres had no respect whatsoever for the Liberals while they were in the opposition.
What do I mean?
Well, once you’re in the opposition? You have to park your vehicle in front of the Legislature.
This Québécois ordered barricades in front of the Legislature.
Therefore, the Liberals had no place to park their vehicles.
I might add I’ve heard he ordered a lawyer and maybe her got paid more than $100,000 to make certain that the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission didn’t take my case.
I’m not sure on that one but I know for a fact that someone made a lot of money!!!!
Here’s the story . . .
New Brunswickers should have the right to know the cost?
I don’t believe the Ombudsman is allowed to investigate this issue?
Dan Bussieres has a Carte Blanche to do whatever he wishes!!!
Yes, I believe it’s about time that New Brunswick Politicians got rid of this Québécois and orders a New Brunswicker to be the NEW Sergeant-At-Arms!
I might add that he gave the orders to all the commissionaires from New Brunswick that anyone who is caught chatting with me? They will be fired right on the spot!!!!
A guy from Quebec who promotes hatred shouldn't be there!!!!
THEN OUR MOUTH WAS FILLED WITH LAUGHTER, AND
OUR TONGUE WITH SINGING.

Now in keeping with our Saturday tradition I will share a
laugh or two with you this morning. The following message
was sent to us by one of our Sister's-In-Christ, and it is
titled "Kid's In Church." I hope that you laugh as hard as I
did when I first read these, so let us begin.....
"KIDS IN CHURCH"
3-year-old, Reese: "Our Father, Who does art in heaven,
Harold is His name. Amen."
A little boy was overheard praying: "Lord, if you can't make
me a better boy, don't worry about it. I'm having a real good
time like I am."
A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments.
They were ready to discuss the last one. The teacher asked
if anyone could tell her what it was. Susie raised her hand,
stood tall, and quoted, "Thou shall not take the covers off the
After the christening of his baby brother in church, Jason
sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His
father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the
boy replied, "That preacher said he wanted us brought up
in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you guys."
I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the
Lord's Prayer for several evenings at bedtime, she would
repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided
to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated
each word right up to the end of the prayer: "Lead us not into
temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us some E-mail."
One particular four-year-old prayed, "And forgive us our
trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our
A Sunday school teacher asked her children, as they were
on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary to
be quiet in church?" One bright little girl replied, "Because
people are sleeping."
Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother Joel were
sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out
loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. "You're not
supposed to talk out loud in church." "Why? Who's going to
stop me?" Joel asked. Angie pointed to the back of the
church and said, "See those two men standing by the door?
A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5
and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get
the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a
moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say,
'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'" Kevin
turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be
A father was at the beach with his children when the
four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led
him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.
"Daddy, what happened to him?" the son asked. "He died
and went to Heaven," the Dad replied. The boy thought a
moment and then said, "Did God throw him back down?"
A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she
turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you
like to say the blessing? "I wouldn't know what to say," the
girl replied. "Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife
answered. The daughter bowed her head and said,
"Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"
A Sunday school teacher asked her class, "What was
Jesus' mother's name?" One child answered, "Mary."
The teacher then asked, "Who knows what Jesus' father's
name was?" A little boy said, "Verge."
Confused, the teacher asked, "Where did you get that?"
The boy said, "Well, you know they are always talking
about Verge n' Mary.
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
