The words were essentially what the victim had said during her testimony in the trial. They were also a more blunt version of what both the Telegram story and CBC's story said.
If the victim had been too drunk to recall details of what had happened the night of the assault, then logically she was too drunk to consent.
One of them carried a sign that was astonishing in light of the screams of outrage the week before at the Telegram headline. The sign read "Too drunk to consent."
The headline and the subsequent controversy didn't have an impact on the verdict but the headline and the sign make an interesting contradiction.
