  • The Post Millennial Canada’s Governor Oversteps Mandate Friday November 3rd, 2017
    Scarcely a month into her tenure as Canada’s Governor-General, Julie Payette has stirred up controversy. As keynote speaker at the ninth annual Canadian Science Policy Convention in Ottawa, Payette recently exhorted members of the audience to help combat a variety of misleading beliefs, notably those she deemed especially foolish in regard to climate change and origin-of-life myths.

  • The Post Millennial Universities Becoming Hotspots for Intellectual Injustice Tuesday October 31st, 2017
    Back in 2005, in a column I wrote about political correctness on campus, I invited students to send me examples of pressure being put on them to conform with their professors ideology. It was an unscientific poll, given the inherent selection bias, but I did get over 100 email responses, many of which included precise evidence of a bias witnessed or experienced. Now, out of 500,000 s...

    Quis custodiet ipsos custodies? Who watches the watchmen in our society? That is the case before the court of public opinion in Canada today. The Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) regulates, licenses and disciplines Ontario’s more than 50,000 lawyers and 8,000 paralegals, in order “to maintain and advance the cause of justice and the rule of law, [and] to facilitate access to justice...
  • The Post Millennial A look into Multiculturalism, Identity Politics, and Totalitarianism Wednesday October 4th, 2017
    “Where I am coming From” I am delighted to submit this, my debut weekly column, to ThePostMillennial.com. I hope readers will indulge my taking this occasion to introduce “where I am coming from,” so to speak, in my choice of polemical subjects. When I look back over the body of my columns in the National Post, since I began my tenure there as an opinion columnist in Septe...
