No simple solutions to social media challenges

Amusements Ten years ago, when I started writing this column, nobody was really frightened of the internet. My first column for The Interim was about the fear of communications technology, opting out and cutting the cable  – but the villain was television. “Every year it seems like a new study is published linking TV viewing with obesity, poor marks, diminishing attention spans or aggression,” I wrote, “with particular condemnation reserved for parents who ...

Andrew Scheer must go

Andrew Scheer must go

Andrew Scheer Many in the pro-life, pro-family community are disappointed, but not surprised with the results of the Oct. 21 federal election. While there were well over 140 pro-life candidates, most were Christian Heritage Party and People’s Party of Canada candidates with little chance of winning. But even if every pro-life candidate won, there would not be a pro-life majority in Parliament, where 170 seats are required for a ... (Continue reading)

How to vote pro-life

How to vote pro-life

Andrew Scheer has been a disappointing Conservative leader. For pro-life and pro-family Canadians, he has not lived up to the promise of his stellar voting record as a long-time MP. Some pro-lifers were hoping that despite his repeated avowal to not reopen the abortion issue, he would allow the many pro-life members of the Conservative caucus and swelling ranks pro-life candidates in the general election to act on their ...

The Trudeau doctrine

The Trudeau doctrine

A federal election looms, and the fortunes of the ruling Liberals aren’t looking good. Battered by a series of scandals that have shown the sinister side of a leader associated with “sunny ways,” the party is widely expected to lose its majority. If Justin Trudeau does lead his party to defeat, pro-life Canadians should celebrate. In stating this fact, we do not denigrate, in the least, those pro-life Liberals who ... (Continue reading)
