Pro-life, pro-family delegates influence Conservative convention

Pro-life, pro-family delegates influence Conservative convention

The headlines coming out of the 2016 Conservative policy convention in Vancouver May 26-28 was that the Tories became a modern, inclusive party because it accepted same-sex “marriage.” The social conservatives were defeated, if not outright vanquished, according to some pundits. That is a gross over-simplification of a more complex story, in which pro-life and pro-family delegates saw both victories and defeats in a number of policy, constitutional, and ...

Waking up from the ‘American Dream’

Waking up from the ‘American Dream’

"The children are our future” is probably among the most sententious phrases you can utter in politics, a sure tell that the person using it has no plan that will immediately have an impact on the children – yours or anyone else’s – or the future.

They don’t make Christmas movies like they used to

They don’t make Christmas movies like they used to

They still make Christmas movies, as far as I can tell, but we’re a long way from Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney singing Irving Berlin tunes for a war-weary generation. This Christmas, for instance, we have the very wry Bill Murray spoofing the holiday TV special in A Very Murray Christmas, and The Night Before, a seasonal buddy film where Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Antony Mackie binge their ...

Toronto Catholic School Board will teach radical sex curriculum

The Toronto Catholic Board will teach the radical sex curriculum. The much-anticipated changes to meet the “Catholic lens” criteria has turned out to be mere window dressing.
