  • The Post Millennial Ontario mother starts new project to fight radical trans ideology Monday December 9th, 2019
    Six months ago I reported a story about an Ontario couple, Pamela and Jason Buffone, whose daughter, “N,” suffered so much distress in her Grade One classes on gender fluidity that her parents eventually enrolled her in another school. A bright and impressionable child, N informed her parents that her teacher had told the class that “Girls are not real and boys are not real.” The teacher meant,...
  • The Post Millennial The way they teach Orwell in Canada is Orwellian Friday November 29th, 2019
    All writers enjoying respect and popularity in their lifetimes entertain the hope that their work will outlive them. The true mark of a writer’s enduring influence is the adjectification of his (sorry, but it usually is “his”)—name. An especially jolly Christmas scene is said to be “Dickensian.” A cryptically written story is “Hemingwayesque.” A corrupted legal process gives rise to a “Kafkaesq...
  • The Post Millennial Ten years on, and we haven’t learned a thing from “Climategate” Thursday November 21st, 2019
    In April, 2014,  the Globe and Mail published an article, “Climate change and health: Extreme heat a ‘silent killer.’” In it, the reporter cites the claim of an alleged expert from a non-profit, Clean Air Partnership (CAP), that maximum temperatures in Toronto could be expected to rise 7 C by 2045. The reporter did not query the figure in her write-up, and her editor apparently didn’t take a go...
  • The Post Millennial Anti-Semitism rears its ugly head at McGill University Thursday November 14th, 2019
    Anti-Semitism is an escalating global problem, and no objective observer denies it. There are many contributing factors, but a common two-ply thread is the demonization of the state of Israel as an all-evil oppressor and the Palestinians as an all-innocent oppressed people. The obsession rises to its crescendo on university campuses, where fulltime hate-fuelled activists plow their Israel-deleg...
  • The Post Millennial HOW DARE YOU: Professor turfed after telling inconvenient climate truth Monday November 4th, 2019
    In 2011, London’s National Theatre mounted a play, The Heretic, by Richard Bean, that had the hot topic of climate change as its driving theme. His protagonist is a respected academic in the earth sciences department of a Yorkshire university, Dr. Diane Cassell. Her specialty is the measurement of sea levels in the Maldives. Can you already see where this is going? Bet you can, and you’re right...
  • The Post Millennial Climate hypocrisy rules the day with jet-setting liberal influencers Thursday October 31st, 2019
    Polls show that people are a lot more concerned about climate change than they used to be. But are they responding to actual evidence of climate change, or the constant harangues at them by Chicken Little politicians and cultural influencers desperate to prove their Gaia-reverent, politically correct credentials? My own skepticism is buttressed when, for example, I see the Obama family purchasi...
  • The Post Millennial The world now knows exactly who Jessica Yaniv is Thursday October 24th, 2019
    I can’t imagine there is a single person in Canada—apart from the complainant’s mother—who didn’t feel a great wash of relief when transwoman Jessica “Jonathan” Yaniv lost the case brought to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal against the waxologists who refused to wax Yaniv’s balls. Even the most fervent trans activist knows in his or her heart that, given Yaniv’s public truculence, combined ...
  • The Post Millennial As election approaches, don’t forget Trudeau’s neglect of the Yazidi people Friday October 18th, 2019
    By now, most Canadians’ voting intentions are settled. It’s late in the day to be reminding people of why they should—or shouldn’t—consider a party or its leader worthy of their vote. Nevertheless, since no other commentator has brought the issue up, I want to remind readers of the Trudeau government’s shameful neglect of the Yazidi people in their hour of greatest need. The genocide of the Yaz...
  • The Post Millennial City of Edmonton shuts down pro-life group’s plans for the second time Friday October 11th, 2019
    The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), on whose board I sit, offers pro bono legal services to individuals or groups whose Charter rights the JCCF agrees have been breached. They have announced that they are filing a court application  on behalf of the Alberta March for Life (AMLA) and its vice-chair, Jerry Pasternak, “against the City of Edmonton for its decision to cancel a sc...
  • The Post Millennial The deification of Greta Thunberg shows our culture at peak panic Friday October 4th, 2019
    Sixteen-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has been likened to Joan of Arc, and a Church in Sweden calls her a “successor” to Jesus Christ. In September she was named as one of four winners of the 2019 Right Livelihood Award, known as Sweden’s “alternative Nobel Prize” for “inspiring and amplifying political demands for urgent climate action reflecting scientific facts.” Multitude...
  • The Post Millennial One brave young man takes on gender inequality at USC Tuesday September 24th, 2019
    Misandry—the hatred of men—has been a staple of my polemical writing for more than fifteen years. I felt a special obligation to hammer away at gender myths such as intimate partner violence (women are about as likely as men to initiate violence against their partners as men), false sexual allegations (a disturbing percentage of such allegations) and demonstrable bias against father...
  • The Post Millennial Maclean’s burns itself with bizarre article about “mediocre white men” Wednesday September 11th, 2019
    I never thought of Maclean’s as a satirical magazine, but perhaps they are testing the waters on a rebranding. I cannot otherwise account for the bizarre article just published under their aegis by Scott Gilmore, “Thank God I could Enjoy the Age of Mediocre White Men While It Lasted.” This self-flagellatory apologia for being a successful white male reads like a parody of our ...
  • The Post Millennial Rashida Tlaib just can’t quit her anti-Semitism Thursday September 5th, 2019
    In late August, in what has been described by sources close to the victim as a brutal “honour killing,” Israa Gharib, a 21- year old Bethlehem makeup artist, was allegedly murdered by her father and brother to redress the shame Gharib’s family suffered when the woman posted a video of an outing with a suitor on her Instagram page.Responding to the tragedy, congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) twe...
  • The Post Millennial The moral panic over gender is very irrational and very real Friday August 30th, 2019
    Much of the west is now experiencing a moral panic around gender, based on the irrational hypothesis that, alone among the planet’s innumerable species, the sexual norm for humans is not essentially binary. All our political, social and cultural institutions genuflect to the now-sacralized notion that a subjective dysphoria—but only a gender dysphoria, not other kinds like anorexia—is the equiv...
  • The Post Millennial The fake Scheer homophobia scare is a new low for the Liberals Friday August 23rd, 2019
    The Liberals know they are going into the coming federal election with their leader, Justin Trudeau, weighed down by the heavy baggage of the SNC-Lavalin debacle and the India Tickle Trunk Tour, amongst many other embarrassments. So the Conservatives had to expect some desperation moves to cast their leader, Andrew Scheer, in what the Libs consider an equally bad light. And right on cue, the Li...
  • The Post Millennial After going woke and losing $8 billion, Gillette embraces masculinity again Thursday August 22nd, 2019
    It may just be a total coincidence. Or maybe not. Proctor & Gamble’s $8 billion writedown last month in the value of the 118-year old shaving business company, Gillette, that it purchased for $57 billion in 2005, followed closely upon the release of a highly controversial ad, which had little to say about the great shaves men could expect when using a Gillette razor, and a great deal to say...
  • The Post Millennial Who is the real Michael Coren? Wednesday August 7th, 2019
    A witty friend of mine once called her husband at work, and after only a few seconds asked, “Who’s in the office with you?” He was in fact with an important client. Later, he asked how she’d known he wasn’t alone. She replied, “Because you were speaking to me like someone who hasn’t shared my bed for thirty years.” The anecdote springs to mind whenever a public figure I know sacrifices spo...
  • The Post Millennial Canada’s marijuana laws are all about Trudeau’s hipster legacy Friday August 2nd, 2019
    Canada was the second country in the world to legalize marijuana (Uruguay was the first). The legalizing act calls it “cannabis” of course. So much more genteel than marijuana, eh? “Cannabis” sounds scientific, well-researched – while marijuana sounds kind of louche and stoned, too close to low-rent, pejorative sobriquets like pot, weed, hash, grass, ganja, reefer et al. But it’s sti...
  • The Post Millennial No, the Canadian election day is not an anti-Semitic conspiracy Friday July 26th, 2019
    Election Day is Oct 21. This year, the date coincides with Shemini Atzeret, one of several “High Holidays” festival dates in the annual Jewish calendar, at the tail end of the harvest festival called Sukkot, but which is largely honoured in the breach of its halachic (Jewishly legal) detail by all but Orthodox Jews (about 75,000 in Canada). By an unusual coincidence, the Conservative nomin...
  • The Post Millennial As absurd as it is, the Jessica Yaniv case has serious implications Tuesday July 23rd, 2019
    For its wider implications, but also for its looniness, our history books will marvel—if and when cultural sanity returns—at the singular “human rights” case of alleged transwoman Jessica Yaniv—sometimes self-presenting as Jonathan Yaniv—vs the waxologists. Yaniv retains his male genitalia. But, thanks to the recently invented, but imprecisely defined right of “gender expression” having be...
