  • The Post Millennial Faith and family are at the core of Netflix's 'Greenleaf' Sunday January 17th, 2021
    I am a sucker for soap operas, and always was. One of my favourites was the CBS series, Dallas, which ran from 1978 to 1991. Its plotline had family patriarch Jock Ewing, founder of Ewing oil, presiding over all the ways in which such an apparent blessing can go wrong through no fault of his own, but plenty of fault shared out amongst his offspring, especially the Machiavellian older of his tw...
  • The Post Millennial The Inquiry reveals Cornwall's history of sexual abuse against boys Thursday December 17th, 2020
    In the 1980s Canadians were shocked into awareness of the widespread evil of child sexual abuse. Before that era, child sexual abuse was never considered a public health issue; it was thought of by decent people—if thought of at all—as an evil associated with obviously dissolute monsters. Certainly not something any "respectable" citizen would ever do. The sickening truth began to s...
  • The Post Millennial Former radio host takes station to human rights tribunal after getting trolled on Twitter Wednesday December 9th, 2020
    If you are an opinion journalist worth readers’ or listeners’ time, whether your views are left, right or centre, you will have lots of people disagreeing with you. Your more uninhibited responders, some of them downright sadistic bottom feeders, may express their contempt for you with shocking imagery on social media. They will wish you death in a grease fire, accuse you of every p...
  • The Post Millennial 'Zionism: An Indigenous Struggle' exposes the Palestinian appropriation of the suffering of North American native peoples Wednesday November 25th, 2020
    On March 16, 2003, at the height of the Second Palestinian Intifada, Rachel Corrie, an anti-Israel activist filled to the brim with righteous fury on behalf of the Palestinians living under Israeli control, travelled with a group of comrades-in-arms to Gaza and foolishly positioned herself inside an active combat zone to bruit her political message. She died when an Israeli Defence Force armour...
  • The Post Millennial Medical student expelled for refusing to change his personal beliefs Friday November 20th, 2020
    If you represented a marketing firm hired by a political party to shine a positive light on your client's immigration-friendly policy, you'd be smart to personalize the message with an inspiring story of an immigrant who had benefited from the policy, and was in turn, as a model citizen, emerging as a productive, valuable asset to Canadian society. You couldn't do better than a young man by th...
  • The Post Millennial Woman fired by restaurant after posting support for JK Rowling on Facebook Tuesday October 13th, 2020
    Because I write frequently about cancel culture and free speech issues, hardly a week goes by that I don't receive a request to tell the story of someone who has suffered consequences for holding and expressing "incorrect" opinions. Almost every story evokes my sympathy for the victim, and most of them contain discouraging evidence of the progressive shrinkage of the free-speech window in our c...
  • The Post Millennial How a Biden win could get America the conservative president it needs Monday October 5th, 2020
    Every US presidential election has its "October surprise." This time it was the announcement that President Trump and the First Lady had tested positive for the coronavirus. That puts the president hors concours in anything but a virtual way for at least 14 days. Considering that Biden is ahead in the polls, and that Trump's political strength lies in his galvanizing rallies, this is a major se...
  • The Post Millennial The war on critical race theory indoctrination is worth winning Friday October 2nd, 2020
    One of the more repulsive domestic aspects of the First World War in England was the "White Feather Campaign.” Though physically near-weightless, in its symbolism—male cowardice—the white feather was heavier than Tungsten. Women motivated by a hysterical form of patriotism would hand them to any able-bodied man they saw on the streets as a goad to enlisting (or re-enlisting). ...
  • The Post Millennial Black moms and dads deserve to know the truth—kids do better with two parents Saturday September 26th, 2020
    In late July, Congress's Joint Economic Committee (JEC) issued an important report, "The Demise of the Happy Two-Parent Home." Although its findings are illuminating, many of them are a poor fit with certain passionately held beliefs in progressive circles. Therefore, it failed, with conservative exceptions like the Wall Street Journal and The Epoch Times, to attract attention from mainst...
  • The Post Millennial BC father may face jail for not acknowledging child's gender transition Friday September 11th, 2020
    You cannot get married in Canada unless you are 16 years old, and in most provinces that is only with parental consent. The "full age of consent" is held to be 18 or 19, depending on the province, the age at which point neither parents or a court may stop you. Have you ever wondered why that is? Why don't we take a 13-year old's word for it when she says she is madly in love with her boyfriend...
  • The Post Millennial Drug addicts do not benefit from 'harm reduction,' but from rehabilitation and treatment Friday September 11th, 2020
    On Aug 25 the BC government announced there has been a shocking rise in street drug deaths this year, 175 in the last month and, to date in 2020, more than 900 people, a 136 percent increase from July, 2019. Illicit drug-related death number "surpass deaths due to homicides, motor vehicle incidents, suicides and COVID-19 combined," according to chief coroner Lisa Lapointe. The chief culprit is ...
  • The Post Millennial Betsy Devos restores much-needed due process to American campuses with Title IX reforms Wednesday August 19th, 2020
    Before she was appointed Secretary of Education by Donald Trump in 2017, I had never heard of Betsy DeVos. My Trump-loathing friends immediately dismissed her as unworthy of the role: a socially conservative billionaire’s wife with no professional experience in the educational system, and the poster girl for political cronyism. As I soon realized, that was an unfair judgment. The h...
  • The Post Millennial Conservative newspapers must not succumb to cancel culture Thursday August 13th, 2020
    "Newspapers have turned into colleges. Boardrooms have turned into colleges. Graceless corporate pseudo-macho American sports have turned into colleges."The quote comes from Mark Steyn’s July 27 obituary of Mike Adams, the 55-year old  University of North Carolina, Wilmington, professor who, long shunned by his colleagues and vilified by students for his spirited political heterodoxy...
  • The Post Millennial Why I'm leaving the National Post Thursday August 13th, 2020
    It’s been two decades since my first byline appeared in the National Post. For a woman who already was well into middle age when her career began, the experience has been a thrill and a privilege. Perhaps more importantly, it’s been lively, energizing and fun. The National Post was conceived in 1998 as a safe haven from the stale pieties that dominated (and still dominate) the...
  • The Post Millennial REVIEW: The End of Gender by Debra Soh Friday July 24th, 2020
    Most authors dedicate their books to loved ones or inspirational teachers. Debra Soh, sexologist and neuroscientist, dedicates her new book, The End of Gender: Debunking the myths about sex and identity in our society to “everyone who blocked me on Twitter.” It’s a fitting tribute, since aggressive opposition to Soh’s spirited defence of science against the prevailing t...
  • The Post Millennial It turns out cognitive differences are as simple as a game of chess Friday July 24th, 2020
    The lockdown has had disparate effects on people, depending on their preferred activities. If a daily squash game was your routine before COVID-19, the days have stretched out endlessly. But if you love bridge, as my sister does, and you don’t mind remote play (she loves it: less socializing), you haven’t skipped a beat. Considering who else might be equally happy with remote play,...
  • The Post Millennial Now the woke army is trying to cancel classical music for 'racism' Thursday July 23rd, 2020
    The COVID-19 lockdown has been a catastrophe for the world of live arts—theatre, music, dance—but it has given some deep thinkers in these domains a lot of time to ponder the state of their industry, and to wonder what their particular genre will—or should—look like in its post-virus incarnation. Combine that circumstance with the swelling anti-racism momentum of the la...
  • The Post Millennial Why are teenage girls afraid to become women? A new book explains their flight from biological reality Friday July 10th, 2020
    Only once (so far) has Twitter suspended my account, and then just for 24 hours. About two years ago, I foolishly lost my temper in a furious Twitter exchange with a Toronto lawyer about radically escalating gender dysphoria rates. This lawyer was (may still be) a frequent contributor to CBC panels on gender issues. He is a firm trans ally who tends to preface any and all gender-related s...
  • The Post Millennial Homeschooling emerges as a viable alternative to ideologically driven public education. Friday June 12th, 2020
    Harvard University was supposed to be hosting a by-invitation-only conference next week, billed as a “Homeschooling Summit.” The official description stated that “the focus will be on problems of educational deprivation and child maltreatment that too often occur under the guise of homeschooling.” Or, in laymen’s terms, “Homeschooling is evil, and we ha...
  • The Post Millennial The diversity, inclusion, equity movement (DIE) is now taking over the STEM field Tuesday June 2nd, 2020
    It used to be that students—mostly men, mostly white in the past, now increasingly diverse—who went into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math—STEM—thought they were safe if they kept their heads down. But they aren’t safe anymore. Having successfully suppressed the numbers of white males in most other departments, the diversity, inclusion and equity movement (...
