  • The Post Millennial Government-sponsored erasure of women's rights advances with the word 'female' being banned on International Women's Day Sunday March 21st, 2021
    According to research on the "cancellation" of conservative thinkers in academia, gender-critical academics are the most beleaguered of all. In his recent Quillette article, "The Threat to Academic Freedom: From Anecdotes to Data," University of London professor Eric Kaufmann writes, "just 28 percent of American and Canadian academics, and barely a third of British academics, would ha...
  • The Post Millennial Switzerland votes to ban the niqab in public Tuesday March 9th, 2021
    Switzerland takes direct democracy very seriously, often putting questions of public policy to the public in the form of a national or regional referendum requiring a 50 percent threshold for passage. Sometimes the results accord with the government's preferred policy, sometimes not. In 2009, Swiss citizens resisted government advice and voted to ban the building of minarets, agreeing wi...
  • The Post Millennial Mask mandates for children have no basis in science Friday March 5th, 2021
    At about this time last year, I was fretting to a friend about the paucity of medical masks available, and the difficulty of getting hold of cloth ones. My friend thought I was over-reacting. The government isn't telling us to wear masks, she said. They're even saying masks are ineffective and counter-productive. I remember my exact words to her: "Government policy accords with the scarcity of ...
  • The Post Millennial Academics and theorists reframe opposition to dangerous pit bulls in racist terms Monday February 22nd, 2021
    I am a seasoned polemicist in the pit bull wars (I'm not a fan of pit bull type dogs, to put it kindly, as you can see in this 2017 piece published in The Walrus online). It's been quite a while since I've engaged on that front, though. So a recent book review published in Aero magazine acted upon me as a bugle to an old cavalry horse. Titled "critical race theory is Coming for the Dogs," I ha...
  • The Post Millennial Jessica Mulroney was exonerated —so why isn't anyone apologizing for her cancellation? Sunday February 14th, 2021
    It's not often an opinion columnist has the opportunity for a "scoop"—that is, the opportunity to break a story to the public that has not been covered by other media outlets. It's a gratifying experience when it happens—and also, to judge by the feedback—an instructive one. In December, my editor at the National Post invited me to write a feature article based on material th...
  • The Post Millennial Biden's executive order allowing biological males to compete in female sports is an attempt to appease the far-left at the cost of women's rights Monday February 1st, 2021
    What did we hear over and over again when Joe Biden was declared the Democrats' official candidate for president? That we could all relax because he was the "moderate" choice, the anti-Sanders candidate, who wouldn't kowtow to the party extremists, but would honour the middle ground occupied by the majority of Americans. And what were we told about Kamala Harris when she was chosen as the firs...
  • The Post Millennial Ryerson journalism student should not be barred from school newspaper for his religious views Sunday January 17th, 2021
    There are two student newspapers at Ryerson University: The Ryersonian—funded by the university—and the Eyeopener, which is independent, but receives $6 per student, a contribution students may not opt out of. Jonathan Bradley, who is a contributor to The Post Millennial, is a fourth-year journalism student at Ryerson who by last spring had achieved the status of contributing write...
  • The Post Millennial Faith and family are at the core of Netflix's 'Greenleaf' Sunday January 17th, 2021
    I am a sucker for soap operas, and always was. One of my favourites was the CBS series, Dallas, which ran from 1978 to 1991. Its plotline had family patriarch Jock Ewing, founder of Ewing oil, presiding over all the ways in which such an apparent blessing can go wrong through no fault of his own, but plenty of fault shared out amongst his offspring, especially the Machiavellian older of his tw...
  • The Post Millennial The Inquiry reveals Cornwall's history of sexual abuse against boys Thursday December 17th, 2020
    In the 1980s Canadians were shocked into awareness of the widespread evil of child sexual abuse. Before that era, child sexual abuse was never considered a public health issue; it was thought of by decent people—if thought of at all—as an evil associated with obviously dissolute monsters. Certainly not something any "respectable" citizen would ever do. The sickening truth began to s...
  • The Post Millennial Former radio host takes station to human rights tribunal after getting trolled on Twitter Wednesday December 9th, 2020
    If you are an opinion journalist worth readers’ or listeners’ time, whether your views are left, right or centre, you will have lots of people disagreeing with you. Your more uninhibited responders, some of them downright sadistic bottom feeders, may express their contempt for you with shocking imagery on social media. They will wish you death in a grease fire, accuse you of every p...
  • The Post Millennial 'Zionism: An Indigenous Struggle' exposes the Palestinian appropriation of the suffering of North American native peoples Wednesday November 25th, 2020
    On March 16, 2003, at the height of the Second Palestinian Intifada, Rachel Corrie, an anti-Israel activist filled to the brim with righteous fury on behalf of the Palestinians living under Israeli control, travelled with a group of comrades-in-arms to Gaza and foolishly positioned herself inside an active combat zone to bruit her political message. She died when an Israeli Defence Force armour...
  • The Post Millennial Medical student expelled for refusing to change his personal beliefs Friday November 20th, 2020
    If you represented a marketing firm hired by a political party to shine a positive light on your client's immigration-friendly policy, you'd be smart to personalize the message with an inspiring story of an immigrant who had benefited from the policy, and was in turn, as a model citizen, emerging as a productive, valuable asset to Canadian society. You couldn't do better than a young man by th...
  • The Post Millennial Woman fired by restaurant after posting support for JK Rowling on Facebook Tuesday October 13th, 2020
    Because I write frequently about cancel culture and free speech issues, hardly a week goes by that I don't receive a request to tell the story of someone who has suffered consequences for holding and expressing "incorrect" opinions. Almost every story evokes my sympathy for the victim, and most of them contain discouraging evidence of the progressive shrinkage of the free-speech window in our c...
  • The Post Millennial How a Biden win could get America the conservative president it needs Monday October 5th, 2020
    Every US presidential election has its "October surprise." This time it was the announcement that President Trump and the First Lady had tested positive for the coronavirus. That puts the president hors concours in anything but a virtual way for at least 14 days. Considering that Biden is ahead in the polls, and that Trump's political strength lies in his galvanizing rallies, this is a major se...
  • The Post Millennial The war on critical race theory indoctrination is worth winning Friday October 2nd, 2020
    One of the more repulsive domestic aspects of the First World War in England was the "White Feather Campaign.” Though physically near-weightless, in its symbolism—male cowardice—the white feather was heavier than Tungsten. Women motivated by a hysterical form of patriotism would hand them to any able-bodied man they saw on the streets as a goad to enlisting (or re-enlisting). ...
  • The Post Millennial Black moms and dads deserve to know the truth—kids do better with two parents Saturday September 26th, 2020
    In late July, Congress's Joint Economic Committee (JEC) issued an important report, "The Demise of the Happy Two-Parent Home." Although its findings are illuminating, many of them are a poor fit with certain passionately held beliefs in progressive circles. Therefore, it failed, with conservative exceptions like the Wall Street Journal and The Epoch Times, to attract attention from mainst...
  • The Post Millennial BC father may face jail for not acknowledging child's gender transition Friday September 11th, 2020
    You cannot get married in Canada unless you are 16 years old, and in most provinces that is only with parental consent. The "full age of consent" is held to be 18 or 19, depending on the province, the age at which point neither parents or a court may stop you. Have you ever wondered why that is? Why don't we take a 13-year old's word for it when she says she is madly in love with her boyfriend...
  • The Post Millennial Drug addicts do not benefit from 'harm reduction,' but from rehabilitation and treatment Friday September 11th, 2020
    On Aug 25 the BC government announced there has been a shocking rise in street drug deaths this year, 175 in the last month and, to date in 2020, more than 900 people, a 136 percent increase from July, 2019. Illicit drug-related death number "surpass deaths due to homicides, motor vehicle incidents, suicides and COVID-19 combined," according to chief coroner Lisa Lapointe. The chief culprit is ...
  • The Post Millennial Betsy Devos restores much-needed due process to American campuses with Title IX reforms Wednesday August 19th, 2020
    Before she was appointed Secretary of Education by Donald Trump in 2017, I had never heard of Betsy DeVos. My Trump-loathing friends immediately dismissed her as unworthy of the role: a socially conservative billionaire’s wife with no professional experience in the educational system, and the poster girl for political cronyism. As I soon realized, that was an unfair judgment. The h...
  • The Post Millennial Conservative newspapers must not succumb to cancel culture Thursday August 13th, 2020
    "Newspapers have turned into colleges. Boardrooms have turned into colleges. Graceless corporate pseudo-macho American sports have turned into colleges."The quote comes from Mark Steyn’s July 27 obituary of Mike Adams, the 55-year old  University of North Carolina, Wilmington, professor who, long shunned by his colleagues and vilified by students for his spirited political heterodoxy...
