  • National Post Prince Harry needs to keep calm and carry on Tuesday October 1st, 2019
    In conversation with a student at a multi-faith reception during the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 10-day South Africa tour, Prince Harry reportedly confessed to being so “overwhelmed” by the world’s problems that he sometimes struggles to get out of bed in the morning. He is particularly afflicted by eco-anxiety.Harry’s climate-change alarm is honestly come by f...
  • National Post Concordia’s Liberal Arts College finds it’s not immune to cancel culture Wednesday September 25th, 2019
    Liberal Arts College is a tiny college housed in an old greystone nestled within Montreal’s bustling downtown Concordia University campus. I’ve praised LAC in the past as an alternative for students seeking a traditional education in the humanities, featuring what used to be a standard core curriculum in the Western canon. The program offers a journey through the Great Books, beg...
  • 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...
  • CJNEWS Kay: The growing tendency to blame Israel for all Palestinian ills Thursday September 19th, 2019
    Last month, Israa Gharib, a 21-year-old makeup artist from Bethlehem, was allegedly murdered by her father and brother – described as an “honour killing” – for posting a video of herself with her fiancé on her Instagram page. In response, U.S. congresswoman and Palestinian activist Rashida Tlaib quite rightly tweeted a denunciation of honour killings: “Israa’s death illustrates an ever-present ...
  • National Post Common Sense Should Prevail in Criminal Sentencing of Minorities Monday September 16th, 2019
    Kevin Morris, a 26-year old black man, was raised by a single mother in a tough Toronto neighbourhood. Having twice endured knife violence in youth, he was eventually diagnosed with PTSD and paranoia after a third stabbing left him critically wounded. Last year, Morris was arrested for carrying a loaded firearm, his first criminal offence. The prosecutor requested a four-year “exemplary s...
  • 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 ...
  • National Post What are dogs for? To be waited upon by their humans, of course Tuesday September 10th, 2019
    It startled me to learn last week that Christie Blatchford’s beloved English bull terrier, Obie, had died at a ripe old age. Seems but a few years ago she informed readers of his acquisition as a pup.Christie says Obie was “my one,” made for her, as she was for him. It’s tough to lose a cherished companion but, given our hugely disparate life spans, dog lovers must ac...
  • 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...
  • National Post Muffling a lawyer’s book that looked at the entitlements of Indigenous peoples Tuesday September 3rd, 2019
    Last February the Sudbury, Ont., branch of Chapters abruptly cancelled an upcoming book-signing event. A clue to its decision may be found in the politically incorrect title of the book in question, by area lawyer Peter Best: There Is No Difference: An Argument for the Abolition of the Indian Reserve System and Special Race-based Laws and Entitlements for Canada’s Indians.Best is one o...
  • 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...
  • CJNEWS Educator profiles female Jewish pioneers who changed the world Thursday August 29th, 2019
    Janice Baryshnik of Toronto is a psychologist and an educator. Helping adolescents reach their potential has been the focus of her career for 30 years. A deeply committed Jew, Baryshnik found inspiration for realizing her own ambitions in stories about Jewish women who were innovators in their chosen fields of endeavour. Canvassing her daughter, 43, and her daughter’s circle of friends, however...
  • National Post 160 years into Darwinism, there's one mystery we still can't explain Tuesday August 27th, 2019
    Back when the world was young, I was taught that four visionaries’ theories shaped modernity: Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein. Of them, only Einstein’s could be subjected to scientific scrutiny. The rest remained hypotheses, resistant to such standard scientific tests as falsifiability, replicability and predictability, but so beautiful in their comprehe...
  • 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...
  • National Post Loneliness is a human catastrophe – and it’s getting worse Tuesday August 6th, 2019
    Heat waves kill. But selectively. If you’re relatively young, healthy and have access to a lake or air conditioning, heat is at worst an irritant. Immobile urban seniors living alone without air conditioning are at risk.In August of 2003, a dreadful heat wave washed across Europe. Some 35,000 people died; most of them fit the above profile. A disproportion of the deaths — 14,000 ...
  • 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...
  • National Post Queen's Park memorial to the genocide of the Yezidi deserves your support Tuesday July 30th, 2019
    A sombre anniversary approaches. On Aug. 3, 2014, ISIL jihadists invaded the ancient city of Sinjar, the heartland of the Yezidi people. They forcibly converted, shot, beheaded or burned alive 10,000 men and boys, taking 7,000 women and girls captive, to be used as sex slaves. Holy sites were desecrated. The Kurdish forces that had pledged to defend them retreated en masse in the face of the on...
  • 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...
  • CJNEWS Kay: Are Arabs worse off in Israel? The numbers say no Thursday July 25th, 2019
    In 2008, a delegation from the Mossawa Center, an NGO that promotes equality for Arab-Israelis, came to Brussels to raise EU awareness about the socioeconomic gaps between Israel’s Muslim and Jewish citizens. Their evidence was meant to serve as proof of Israel’s discriminatory treatment of Arabs. The delegates rather awkwardly discovered, however, that Belgium’s Muslims were in worse shape th...
