  • National Post With so many new political parties in Quebec, why not one more? Wednesday January 25th, 2012
    With no fanfare whatsoever, the Parti Conservateur du Québec (PCQ) was launched this week in Montreal. Its chief, Luc Harvey, whom I have never heard of before, says his provincial party will serve to remind people that “the government is at the service of its citizens and not the reverse, and that it is high time to retain what’s good and to clean up what is corrupt.&...

  • National Post Get with the program, Quebec Wednesday October 27th, 2010
    Barbara Kay, National Post · Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2010 During my last round of buffing at the Montreal aesthetics salon that I frequent, I enjoyed an interesting exchange with "Alia," a lovely young woman of South Asian ancestry who threads ladies' eyebrows for an embarrassing pittance.

    Barbara Kay, National Post · Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2010 Quebec's roving public consultations on euthanasia and assisted suicide began on Sept. 7, and wrap up at the end of this week.

  • National Post What did the Church ever do to them? Friday June 4th, 2010

  • National Post Why Quebec is banning the burka Wednesday May 19th, 2010
    Whether they admit it or not, virtually all Westerners hate the niqab and burka for the anti-democratic ideology and misogynistic gender relations they signify. Many are increasingly willing to say so. Why does political correctness fall away when it comes to the niqab? Because other Islamist inroads, like shariah banking, happen offstage, so to speak. They are not "seen"...

    In September 2008, after years of pre-planning by elites without public consultation, Quebec's Ministry of Education established a province-wide, compulsory pedagogical program called Ethique et Culture Religieuse (ECR). All Quebec students -- public, private, even the homeschooled -- must take ECR (with the exception of one secondary school year) from age six through high scho...
