  • CJNEWS Leaders Fuel Vaxx/Unvaxxed Divide, but They Are to Blame for Canada’s Inadequate Hospital Capacity Friday January 21st, 2022
    Commentary A mid-January Maru Public Opinion poll finds that a significant number of Canadians favour sternly punitive measures for the unvaccinated. Of the poll’s online 1,506 panel, 33 percent were in favour of refusing driver licence renewals to those who refused a (likely forthcoming) mandatory vaccination, 37 percent found denial of access to “any publicly funded hospital/me...
  • CJNEWS Why is Prince Andrew the only one being held accountable? Tuesday January 18th, 2022
    It was with a pang that I was informed by People.com that “Queen Elizabeth strips Prince Andrew of [his eight] military titles and patronages amid sexual assault lawsuit,” as the headline read. A day after a judge rejected Prince Andrew’s attempt to have a civil lawsuit quashed, alleging sexual misconduct against him in 2001 by one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, Virgi...
  • National Post What we don't know about unmarked graves at residential schools Monday January 17th, 2022
    Over the past month, three noteworthy events have presented as provocative grist to the groaning mill of Indigenous-“settler” relations. First, acclaimed Cree playwright/novelist Tomson Highway’s memoir , Permanent Astonishment, was published by Penguin-Random House. Highway’s experiences at a residential school did not embitter him. On the contrary, he credited that ...
  • CJNEWS The CBC’s woke bias has been a problem for decades Monday January 10th, 2022
    Canada’s journalism world was rattled recently when Tara Henley — previously unknown to me — a now-former CBC radio and TV producer, as well as on-air columnist, not only called it quits on her eight-year stint at the CBC, but wrote a rather damning open letter explaining why, published on her new Substack page: “Lean Out with Tara Henley.” (Henley had publishe...
  • National Post A year after the Capitol riot, electoral reform is key to American healing Thursday January 6th, 2022
    From the day he was elected, Donald Trump was perceived by U.S. Democrats, incredulous at the crass demagogic buffoon’s victory, as a satanic figure that required exorcism. The first mention of impeachment came 19 minutes after his inauguration. Only days into Trump’s presidency, in Foreign Policy , a former Obama Pentagon legal official wrote a provocative article listing possib...
  • CJNEWS Tutu Leaves Outstanding Human Rights Legacy, but His Antisemitism Shouldn’t Be Overlooked Tuesday January 4th, 2022
    Commentary Anglican archbishop Desmond Tutu, winner of the 1984 Nobel Peace prize and a central figure in South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement, died at age 90 on Dec. 26. As befitted his historical stature, the New York Times accorded generous wordage to his obituary. Archbishop Tutu’s calls for economic sanctions were instrumental in amassing the international pressure that forced an...
  • National Post The high priests of woke hijack the hijab debate Sunday January 2nd, 2022
    Quebec’s Bill 21, which proscribes visible religious symbols in many public-sector jobs — popular with Quebec francophones, unpopular with Quebec and Canadian anglophones — was passed in 2019, but it wasn’t until October that a test case emerged in the public school system. In an act of civil disobedience abetted by Bill 21-dissenting school administrators, substitute te...
  • CJNEWS Civility defeats social media vitriol Friday December 24th, 2021
    The “Christmas column” can be the bane of one’s writing year. Unless your country is actually being invaded, there’s no point in writing about world events. Or Quebec’s hijab law. Or why trans activism is making life miserable for women. Or even whether COVID’s Omicron variant will turn out to be weaker or stronger than this expert or that one has predicted....
  • National Post The case for an 'open' category to welcome trans athletes in sports Monday December 20th, 2021
    In 2006, Canadian downhill mountain bike racer Danika Schroeter found out the hard way what happens to female athletes when they protest against unfair policies in sports. Standing on the podium following a race won by transgender biker Michelle Dumaresq — Canadian women’s champion in 2003, 2004 and 2006, amongst other triumphs — Schroeter received her silver medal in silen...
  • CJNEWS Generation XXX: Billie Eilish is right about how porn warps kids Thursday December 16th, 2021
    On Monday, singing sensation Billie Eilish, only 19 years old, confessed to Howard Stern that she had started watching porn movies on TV while still in grade school. “I used to watch a lot of porn, to be honest. I started watching when I was like 11.” Eilish believes that her habit — it started with entry-level, “normal” porn and spiraled downward into more e...
  • CJNEWS Bowing to Mythology Over Science Diminishes Archeology Tuesday December 14th, 2021
    Commentary “Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.” George Orwell’s frequently cited dictum encapsulates the contested terrain at issue between antagonists in the domain of archeology. On one side are scientists who uphold the tradition of disinterested inquiry into our species’ origins; on the other, an academic cadre so bedazzled by prog...
  • CJNEWS Trans athletes create a competitive imbalance in sports Monday December 6th, 2021
    On Nov 20, outrage was sparked in the world of sport by yet another case of a natal male making mincemeat out of competitors in a women’s division. Trans-identified swimmer Lia – formerly Will – Thomas “blasted” University of Pennsylvania swim records in the 200m and 500m freestyle, achieving times of 1:43:47 and 4:35:06 respectively, which would have placed Thoma...
  • National Post Boosters are a good thing. Not confirming the dosage in writing isn't Sunday December 5th, 2021
    Got your booster shot yet? Mine is scheduled for Dec. 20. My first two were Pfizer, but this time it will be Moderna which, unlike Pfizer’s booster, comes in two strengths — full and half doses. (Moderna did a clinical trial with half doses for children under 12, but then concluded that a half dose was also sufficient as a booster for healthy adults, offering likely reduction in pos...
  • CJNEWS Where Will the Widespread Embrace of Infertility Lead? Tuesday November 30th, 2021
    Commentary Three years ago, my family resigned our membership in the non-traditional synagogue that had been our religious home for more than 40 years. The end came suddenly after I published a controversial column in a Jewish community newspaper. Without prior consultation, my rabbi joined 25 other progressive rabbis and educators across Canada in denouncing me publicly as a misogynist...
  • CJNEWS Suzuki exposed as a fraud who pays lip service to his causes Tuesday November 30th, 2021
    Reader’s Digest used to do annual polls to discover which prominent Canadians were deemed most trustworthy by the public. In first place in 2010 for the second year in a row: “eco-champion” David Suzuki, was described on the Reader’s Digest website as “honest, compassionate, and communicating a clear message.” How could so many Canadians have been so gu...
  • CJNEWS KAY: Green extremists ignore indigenous voices that don’t fall in line Saturday November 27th, 2021
    In mid-November, a handful of Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs in BC spearheaded yet another attempt — thwarted by the RCMP — to scuttle Coastal GasLink’s $6.6 billion natural gas pipeline. The half-completed pipeline will run 670 km from Dawson Creek in northeast BC to Kitimat on the west coast, there to be processed in an $18-billion terminal financed by ...
  • National Post The epic lies partisan media and Democrats used to try to take down Trump Wednesday November 24th, 2021
    Donald Trump is an awful human being: narcissistic, abusive, arrogant, vengeful, untruthful, sexist, bombastic and sporadically unhinged, most undeniably so when he lost the 2020 election. But that doesn’t mean he was a Russian asset during the 2016 election campaign, as alleged in the infamous “Steele dossier,” the foundation for a conspiracy theory that has been embraced b...
  • National Post No, not all Black TV is ‘telling stories about white supremacy’ Monday November 22nd, 2021
    The October issue of the Atlantic featured an in-depth overview of “Black TV” in America, from the 1950s to the present, by the magazine’s resident expert on Black culture, Hannah Giorgis. Her richly detailed account implies sweeping inclusion, but a rather glaring omission in it piqued my curiosity. In TV’s early days, Blacks were stereotypes like &ldqu...
  • CJNEWS Is the Pervasiveness of Woke Ideology Fostering Racial Fakery? Saturday November 13th, 2021
    Commentary Throughout history, to avoid material harm, or to gain social acceptance from an oppressor group, many people have suppressed a stigmatizing identity and “passed.” Jews have passed for gentile; mixed-race for white; indigenous for non-indigenous. Most of these fakers sought the greatest possible anonymity; the more they blended in, the less scrutiny they attracted. Their moti...
  • National Post In B.C., a small band of unelected Indigenous leaders continue to illegally block gas pipeline Monday November 8th, 2021
    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s recent appointment of eco-warrior Steven Guilbeault to the environment portfolio struck me as a boost to the renewed protests in British Columbia’s Wet’suwet’en territory against the Coastal Gaslink Pipeline (CGL).
