  • The Post Millennial University removes alumni photos from 1907 in promise to show 'a more diverse and inclusive vision of engineering' Tuesday September 21st, 2021
    On Sept 10, an email from the office of Dr. John Newhook, Dean of the faculty of engineering at Dalhousie University in Halifax, was sent to the members of Dalhousie's fourth year engineering class. It was meant to be a kind of housekeeping update on improvements to campus facilities during the past 18 months of COVID lockdown. Most of it was pretty basic, but tucked between the new "all...
  • National Post Academia’s gender bias — how men are being pushed out of higher education Monday September 13th, 2021
    The feminization of higher education is proceeding apace. According to a report from the National Student Clearinghouse in the United States, 1.5 million fewer students are enrolled in higher education than in 2016, with men accounting for 71 per cent of the decline. Soon, two women will graduate for every man. The report envisions no reversal of this trend. Advertisement Story contin...
  • The Post Millennial Ideologues want males in women's space but real people believe in fairness Tuesday September 7th, 2021
    In this federal election, Lyse-Pascale Inamuco is the NDP candidate in the riding of Ottawa-Vanier. Her campaign motto is "Fighting for you." That seems pretty benign on its face. But the devil is always in the details. The "you" in "fighting for you" is not all it seems. As it turns out, if you are a woman demanding your Charter sex-based rights in areas which traditionally have been protect...
  • National Post Media Bias Against Israel Is Entrenched and Runs Deep Monday August 30th, 2021
    Commentary Here is a joke I told some high school students years ago—teenagers can be a tough crowd—to show how easily media bias can manufacture or manipulate public sympathy. In Paris, a man sees a pit bull attacking a little girl. He kills the dog, saving the child’s life. Reporters swarm him. One says, “Tell us your name. Your fellow Parisians will rejoice in tomorrow’s headlines: ‘...
  • National Post Trudeau the fake feminist ignores female inmates’ concerns Sunday August 29th, 2021
    Nobody in Canada cares more about women’s interests than Justin Trudeau. Just ask him. Especially when he’s on the campaign trail (“feminist budget,” “she-cession,” “she-covery”). His personal record of, ahem, he-haviour with certain actual women is another story, but never mind all that. It’s election time. The women’s vote is crucial. Unleash the ministerial sheepdogs to herd all those grazi...

    On Aug 4, the Ottawa-based Macdonald Laurier Institute (MLI) hosted a webinar  titled "A Level Playing Field: Sex, gender and fairness in women's sport." The panel of speakers included: Jon Pike, former chair of the British Philosophy of Sport Association, who moderated; Linda Blade, high-performance coach and President of Athletics Alberta; Mianne Bagger, former touring professional gol...
  • National Post Historical association’s genocide statement ‘brazenly unscholarly’ Monday August 16th, 2021
    To mark this past Canada Day, the Canadian Historical Association, which represents the interests of 650 professional historians, issued a statement whose purpose was to justify the application of the word “genocide” to the history of Indigenous oppression in this country, with special emphasis on the Indian Residential School system.

  • The Post Millennial Trans man is Twitter-banned after speaking against gender transition of children Sunday August 8th, 2021
    It was bound to happen sooner or later. It happened a week ago. Scott Newgent, a 48 year old female to male trans man, has been banned for life from Twitter. His crime was to issue explicit warnings about the risks to gender-dysphoric children from puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, as well as the potential horrors that can accompany gender-reassignment surgery, which he underwent five ...
  • National Post COVID unleashed a pandemic of eating disorders Thursday July 29th, 2021
    The COVID-19 disruption hit adolescents hard, but teenagers don’t always voice their anxieties. Instead, they’ll often channel them into troubling behaviour, such as eating disorders. And we’re beginning to see just how tough the pandemic lockdowns have been for those who have, or are struggling to emerge from, an eating disorder. Advertisement Story continues below This advert...
  • National Post The ‘Sudden’ Erasure of Women’s Sex-Based Rights Tuesday July 27th, 2021
    Commentary How did we get from common sense on biology to the erasure of women’s sex-based rights? As Ernest Hemingway said of how he arrived at bankruptcy, “Gradually, then suddenly.” The blueprint for “suddenly” was drafted in Yogyakarta, capital city of Indonesia’s island of Java. It was to Yogyakarta, in 2006, that a group of trans activists and human rights professionals—including ...
  • The Post Millennial Ben & Jerry's doesn't boycott any nation but Israel over human rights abuses Sunday July 25th, 2021
    At 1,380 calories, 84 g fat (45 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 650 mg sodium and 134 g carbs per pint, Chubby Hubby, one of Ben and Jerry's most popular ice cream flavours, is rated second on Eat This, Not That's list of  "the unhealthiest ice cream pints in the nation." But wait, there's more. In first place, "the most unhealthy ice cream pint of them all," is Ben and Jerry's Peanut B...
  • National Post ‘So many people hate you’: Documenting the U.K.’s burgeoning anti-Semitism Saturday July 17th, 2021
    On Sunday July 18, the Church of England service will include a ceremony of “symbolic repentance” to mark the 800-year anniversary of the Synod of Oxford. The 1222 Synod set forth discriminatory laws for Jews, such as identifying badges and higher taxes. The gesture is especially significant in that the Church of England was only established in 1534. The Church is therefore apologizing for all...
  • The Post Millennial Professor could be dragged before Human Rights Commission after raising gender and race debates in class Sunday July 11th, 2021
    Cancel culture is now a trope that needs no explanation for all but the willfully uninformed in western countries. It began on university campuses, but didn't stay there. It is now a gigantic, unstoppable boulder of ice, crushing writers, editors, scientists, artists, actors, fashion influencers, politicians and even knitting enthusiasts in its path.Nevertheless, university campuses remain grou...
  • National Post Mary Simon’s flippancy about French is a danger to Canada Friday July 9th, 2021
    It was always very likely that the new governor general would be Indigenous, so Inuk leader and former ambassador Mary Simon’s appointment came as no surprise. And the news was warmly received: observers familiar with Simon and her past endeavours have expressed delight at the prospect of Rideau Hall’s calm, competent and clubbable new tenant.

  • National Post Counter-Theme to Victimhood: Canada’s Indigenous Peoples Need Not Be Defined by Past Injustices Friday July 2nd, 2021
    Commentary Following the announcement of 215 unmarked graves at a former Kamloops residential school in late May, the city of Victoria in B.C. announced the cancellation of its Canada Day celebrations. When an estimated 751 graves were then discovered at a former Saskatchewan residential school site, #CancelCanadaDay began to trend on Twitter. The activist group Idle No More urged Canad...
  • The Post Millennial What the case of the Masterpiece Cakeshop says about the LGBTQ+ movement and free speech rights Sunday June 27th, 2021
    Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, is a Colorado baker who would have been happy to bask in local recognition for the cakes he created, but instead became internationally famous for being—ahem—"batter"-ed by LGBT activists for the cakes he refused to create. In 2012, Phillips refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple's wedding on the grounds that he ...
  • National Post The complicated truth about transwomen in women’s prisons Monday June 21st, 2021
    For five decades, thanks to feminism and The Pill, women’s cultural standing and fortunes advanced steadily. At long last respect! Then, gender ideologues decreed that men who identify as women “are” women, with all the attendant rights due to them such an affirmation implies. Astonishingly, without demur, in the name of “inclusion,” our cultural and political elites fell in with this self-e...
  • The Post Millennial A Canadian historian faces cancellation for rejecting comparison between residential-school tragedy and the Holocaust Friday June 18th, 2021
    The discovery of 215 children's bodies in unmarked graves at Kamloops, BC Indian Residential School is yet another troubling milestone in the ongoing documentary history of Canada's singularly inexpungible moral stain. I braced myself for the actual or implied Holocaust comparisons that were sure to flow from it. And they did, of course. Kamloops was, according to clergyman Kevin Annett,...
  • National Post Transgender weightlifter may expose the unfairness of trans athletes in Tokyo Monday June 7th, 2021
    There are nine trans athletes hoping to compete at the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer. All of them — whether born male or female — are seeking spots on women’s teams (transgenderism is a non-issue in men’s sport). Only one of the nine is assured a berth: New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, now 43, who made her first lift in international women’s sport in March 2017, and ...
