  • CJNEWS Media’s Neglect of Afghan Women’s Soccer Team Story an Example of Velvet Talibanism Tuesday October 26th, 2021
    Commentary For most of us in the West, the image we instinctively associate with women under Taliban rule in Afghanistan is the animated shroud known as the burqa, the only clue to their humanity a pair of eyes behind a fabric grille. It therefore came as a surprise to me to discover that Afghanistan had a national female soccer team, formed in 2007—the U.S. presence since 2001 gave wom...
  • National Post Accusations of racist JEDIs, and other ways woke extremists are standing in the way of scientific progress Monday October 25th, 2021
    Humour and woke culture cannot co-exist in harmony. In January 2020, the pitch-perfect satirical site, Babylon Bee, ran a story joking that Democrats had called for the American flag to be flown at half-mast after a Donald Trump-ordered strike killed notoriously bloodthirsty Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani. The article went viral amongst credulous, but humourless, progressives who not only believ...
  • National Post Montreal needs to make a run for it — before the doors to the rest of the world close Saturday October 9th, 2021
    Oct. 7 brought an end to consultations on Quebec’s Bill 96, which amends the 1977 Charter of the French Language (Bill 101) and — unilaterally, never before attempted by a province — the Constitution Act of 1867. A few anglophone institutions were invited to the hearings, but their inclusion was pro forma. Bill 96 will pass through use of the notwithstanding clause. Advertisement Stor...
  • The Post Millennial Journalism professor violates hate speech rules in comparing Israeli Defense Force to the Mafia Sunday October 3rd, 2021
    Sheridan College, located in Oakeville, Ontario, has a free-speech policy that does not allow for hate speech. That's nice. It also requires that critical remarks be delivered "thoughtfully and respectfully." That's also very nice. But was this policy respected in a recent controversial article written by Sheridan faculty member Andrew Mitrovica, published in Al Jazeera? Mitrovica is a journa...
  • CJNEWS As Tighter French-Language Laws Loom, Is It Time to Recognize Montreal as a City-State? Tuesday September 28th, 2021
    Commentary Now that the federal election is over, we Montrealers are turning our attention to the city’s mayoralty elections, scheduled for Nov 7. The two viable candidates are incumbent Valérie Plante of the Projet Montréal party and her predecessor Denis Coderre of Ensemble Montréal, who is seeking a comeback. Together their parties command 97 percent of the available seats. Neverthel...
  • National Post MMA chokehold highlights the problem with porn Tuesday September 28th, 2021
    On Sept. 10, at the Combate Global prelims in Miami, female-identifying MMA fighter Alana McLaughlin — formerly Ryan McLaughlin, a member of the United States Army Special Forces — won her debut competition, after six months of training, against competitor Celine Provost, who had been training for a decade. McLaughlin’s “rear-naked choke” of Provost 32 seconds into...
  • 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...
  • CJNEWS 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...
  • The Post Millennial It's time for new guidelines on transgender athletes competing in women's sports Sunday August 22nd, 2021
    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...
  • CJNEWS 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.
