The paradox posed by June Callwood

It was perhaps appropriate that those paragons of the leftist media establishment in Canada, the Toronto Star newspaper and the CBC, would christen as a “secular saint” a woman who stood solidly for such “sacraments” of the left as abortion and homosexuality. Regardless, although she was praised for a number of truly good things she did, Canadians of conscience might be forgiven for [...]

McMurtry a ‘friend’ of Morgentaler

He legalized so-called same-sex marriage in Ontario in 2003, despite the fact his daughter was involved in a same-sex relationship at the time, and partied with the very litigants involved in the case a scarce two weeks later.
