  • National Post Fighting off the chill (no pun intended) against skeptical climate science Tuesday January 9th, 2018
    Baby, it was cold outside. I’ve felt grateful the past few weeks that I live in a draft-free house with a reliable furnace. Another reason for gratitude: the recent record-breaking low temperatures served to embarrass the global-warming Chicken Littles.Climate skeptics never claim that record-breaking cold is a sign of global cooling. It’s time for climate alarmists to stop insis...
  • National Post Confessions of an underperforming grandmother … 'Regrets, I’ve had a few' Saturday January 6th, 2018
    I’m at the age (considered significant if you believe Hallmark) where, when I hear Sinatra singing, “Regrets, I’ve had a few …”, I feel myself nodding where I used only to hum along. So regrets, yes, I’ve had a few — and not too few to mention, either. I should, for example, have lived alone, even for a few months, in my own pad some...

  • National Post A sadly necessary handbook for men falsely accused of sexual assault Thursday December 21st, 2017
    It is a sad commentary on our culture that few people care what happens to men falsely charged with sex crimes   Liam Allan, a 22-year old London, England-area criminology student, spent two years “in a terrible form of limbo” when he was charged with 12 counts of rape, based on allegations by a woman (unnamed) with whom he had had a consensual sexual relationship. ...
  • National Post Parents face scorn for worrying about letting their children change genders Thursday December 21st, 2017
    The “identity model” of working with transgender people stipulates that it is wrong to question someone's self-determined identity. The mental health model looks at the underlying causes of distress and seeks to alleviate or manage symptoms.   In a December 7th article, sexologists J. Michael Bailey and Ray Blanchard, unafraid of taking on difficult topics, descr...

  • CJNEWS INTELLECTUALS AGAINST ISRAEL VS. EZRA LEVANT Friday December 15th, 2017
    In The CJN’s Nov. 30 edition, prominent attention was given to the question of whether Rebel Media founder Ezra Levant is good or bad for the Jews. JSpace president Karen Mock opined that Levant’s “diatribes” and “intimidation” tactics “are an embarrassment to most decent people in our community.” I offered a different view in that feature article, and would like to elaborate on the reasoning b...
  • National Post Parents face scorn for worrying about letting their children change genders Wednesday December 13th, 2017
    In a December 7th article, sexologists J. Michael Bailey and Ray Blanchard, unafraid of taking on difficult topics, describe three basic types of gender dysphoria (which is when someone feels they’re not the same gender as their biological sex).

  • National Post Germany was determined to expunge dangerous anti-Semitism. Now it's back Thursday December 7th, 2017
    Bad things that are tips of bad icebergs shouldn’t happen to good people. But if they must, it’s as well they happen to people with influence to command respectful attention. Gordon Wasserman (since 2011 Baron Wasserman) grew up in Montreal, won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University, and joined the U.K. Home Office in 1967. He is presently a Conservative member of t...

  • The Post Millennial Canadian universities have been zones of censorship far before Lindsay Shepherd Wednesday November 29th, 2017
    Advertisement SharesCanadas Long History of Ideological CensorshipThe Lindsay Shepherd affair at Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU), which I have written about elsewhere, has brought the issue of political correctness on campus run amok to a tipping point.Even the reliably left-leaning Toronto Star admonished the faculty and administration interrogators who bullied Shepherd for her attempt to e...
  • National Post Campus free speech advocates owe pro-life students their help Tuesday November 28th, 2017
    Amidst the deluge of Twitter postings around the Lindsay Shepherd affair at Wilfrid Laurier University, a Nov. 23 tweet struck me for its hutzpah: “In all of the media frenzy over #LindsayShepherd and #JordanPeterson, has anybody asked how young, vulnerable, often marginalized trans students of #WilfredLaurierUniversity (sic) feel?”Hutzpah, because the tweet’s author was qu...

  • CJNEWS The new face of Judaism Monday November 20th, 2017
    My Jewishly oriented attention was captured – and in short order captivated – by a five-part series in the Jerusalem Report, written by its senior editor, Amotz Asa-El. His crisply written essays, released between July and September, are chockablock with thought-provoking, even startling, ideas about the state of the Jewish People in both Israel and the Diaspora – as we were, as we are, as we w...
  • National Post Let’s hope Canadian courts see the true meaning of the niqab Wednesday November 15th, 2017
    As was widely anticipated, Quebec’s Bill 62, banning face cover in the realm of public services, will be legally contested: by an individual niqab-wearing woman, supported by the CCLA and the National Council of Canadian Muslims. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is considering how his government too may “weigh in” on the challenge.Amongst the (anglophone) chattering class...
  • 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...
