Fake news is nothing new

Fake news is nothing new

There’s a story my family likes to tell about the only time my mother’s photo ever appeared in a national newspaper. She had been invited to the offices of the Toronto Star with several other women, where the paper had apparently set up a test kitchen. Several dishes were baked, interviews were conducted, and photos were taken of the women. When the story ran my mother appeared in newsprint showing off her favorite pie recipe. She told everyone that it wasn’t ... (Continue reading)

Dangerous thoughts on university safe zones

Dangerous thoughts  on university safe zones

You thought that war was hell; that trudging through mud in the trenches for months on end, and then going over the top into the teeth of enemy fire, was the worst sort of physical and psychological torture a human could endure. Think again. On today’s university campuses, safe zones can hardly cope, apparently, with the sufferers of a burgeoning epidemic of academic post-traumatic stress disorder: the self-identified non-binary-gendered students permanently scarred by Professor Jordan Peterson’s refusal to address them by ...

Ontario government backs physician’s college assault conscience rights

Ontario’s Liberal government is backing the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario in its attack on doctors’ religious and conscience rights. The Liberal government has intervened on behalf of the CPSO in a lawsuit launched by five Christian doctors, who argue that the College’s Professional Obligation and Human Rights Policy violates their Charter rights of religious freedom and conscience. The CPSO policy, in effect since March 2015, compels doctors who oppose such practices as abortion, abortifacient contraception or euthanasia to ... (Continue reading)

Wagner’s 2012 arrest appealed

Wagner’s 2012 arrest appealed

Mary Wagner Mary Wagner was denied a fair hearing at her 2014 trial after 22 months in jail when trial judge Fergus O’Donnell issued an “ambush opinion” that ignored the grounds of her defence, Wagner’s lawyer has argued. During a four-day appeal hearing beginning Nov. 28, lawyer Charles Lugosi accused O’Donnell of several errors in law. Ontario Superior Court Justice Tamarin Dunnet heard the landmark appeal, the origins of which date back ... (Continue reading)

Woman risks arrest to pray in abortion mill

A pro-life woman who entered a Toronto abortion facility Dec. 14 intending to hand out pro-life cards and pray, was able to stay for a considerable time praying, avoiding arrest only after a man in the waiting room begged staff not to call the police. Making the event even more unusual is that the abortion facility is the exact same one that pro-life activist Mary Wagner was arrested earlier that week. Nanci, who asked to be identified by her first name ... (Continue reading)

Ontario PCs ripped for nomination controversies

Ontario PCs ripped for  nomination controversies

McNaughton reminds party it is a broad coalition Monte McNaughton When Patrick Brown ran for the Progressive Conservative leadership in 2015, he vowed to have open nominations. Recently, that commitment has been called into question. The Toronto Star reported in December that numerous candidates have been disqualified from seeking the PC nomination for the 2018 general election. Brown spins the disqualifications as a sign that so many ... (Continue reading)

University of Alberta sees law students as fragile snowflakes

Law Matters John Carpay Society never becomes more tolerant, but merely shifts the target of its intolerance. At various times in history, and in various places, the authorities have sought to crush anti-slavery speech, anti-Communist speech, and a multitude of religious doctrines deemed to be heretical. Censorship always stems from the same impulse: the authorities are firmly convinced they have the absolute Truth, and are therefore entitled to ... (Continue reading)

Can judicial activism be reversed?

National Affairs Rory Leishman Who would have thought that it might take a crass narcissist like United States President-elect Donald Trump to curb the greatest moral catastrophe in the history of the United States: namely, the deliberate, mass slaughter in the womb of more than 50 million babies over the past 40 years. Trump has got off to a promising start on his presidency by nominating two, impeccably ... (Continue reading)

How wrong can they be?

Light is Right Joe Campbell Pity the poor legislators. Increasingly, Big Brother watches their every move. Well, not just Big Brother, Big Sister, too. Being constantly watched is intimidating. Having what you painstakingly put together repeatedly taken apart is demeaning. But that’s the fate of legislators under a judicial dictatorship. From time to time, I’ve called Big Brother/Sister, also known as the Supreme Court, the judicial magisterium. Not ... (Continue reading)

RU-486 delayed in Canada

Health Canada approved the abortion drug Mifegymiso in 2015 for use in 2016, but thus far its Canadian distributor, Celopharma Inc., has yet to make the so-called “gold standard” in medical abortion available in Canada. In early December, the Canadian Press reported on the status of Mifegymiso, which used to go by the name RU-486, saying “the drug’s Canadian distributor, Celopharma Inc., says it now expects to launch “some time in January.” The CP added, “Company president Paula Tanenbaum gave few ...

CPC leadership candidates raise social issues

CPC leadership candidates raise social issues

On Nov. 29, former MP Pierre Lemieux entered the Conservative Party leadership race, and less than two weeks later he released a video calling for a “respectful debate” on sex-selective abortion. The former Glengarry–Prescott–Russell MP said that “in a democracy such as ours, there should be no debate that is closed.” He said that sex-selective abortion was an issue that should be debated and that “I stand with those Canadians ...
