Revolution

Andrew Lawton Australian wildfires. A global pandemic. Murder hornets (if you don’t know, don’t ask). Could a revolution be next among 2020’s offerings? I don’t, but that doesn’t mean things aren’t changing. After a police officer was filmed with his knee on George Floyd’s neck during an arrest in Minneapolis – an arrest that proved fatal for Floyd – a [...]

Moving

As I have noted in previous issues, we are putting this paper together remotely, from our homes. Since I returned from a brief vacation to the U.S. in early March, I’ve been in quarantine with my family. A few days after we returned, the country underwent quarantine to battle the spread of the coronavirus. The fact is, I probably prefer working from [...]

Taxpayer-funded abortion group suggests banning National March for Life

Trudeau government adjusts COVID-19 relief loan eligibility

The Trudeau government updated eligibility requirements for a COVID-19 emergency relief business loan to explicitly recognize the legal rights of religious groups after LifeSiteNews reported on the matter and 5,082 people signed a LifeSiteNews petition requesting what the government ended up doing.

Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter supports abortion, LGBTQ+ agenda Following the death of George Floyd – he died after being arrested for allegedly using a counterfeit $20 bill and the arresting officer, Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck and back for nearly nine minutes – there were protests, first in Minneapolis and later across the United States and around the globe, organized by Black [...]

A fractured universalism

The pandemic lockdowns had not been lifted before riots broke out across America, unrest which then spread throughout the Western world. Sparked by the stomach-churning video of a black man being suffocated by a white cop, the fires of outrage which led to these riots have since cooled, and have now become smoldering piles of suspicion. In corporate, academic, political, and celebrity [...]

CPC Leadership

French debate During the June 17 French-language debate, Conservative Party leadership contender Erin O’Toole said, “As a prime minister, I will defend the rights of people including women to choose for themselves when it comes to abortion. And if you hear anything to the contrary tonight, it will be a lie.” Puzzlingly, this answer came in response to a question about national [...]

When police stop seeing persons

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke In early 2016, an Arizona police officer yelled highly confusing commands at a sobbing and terrified Daniel Shaver (who, as it turns out, was unarmed), warning him that if he made a mistake, he might die, and die he did. For the sake of this column, I rewatched the video of this incident, witnessing his body [...]
