Who wrecked Canada

A rogue’s gallery: The Interim recently invited its readers* to nominate those who have most helped lead the moral assault on Canada. Here are the results. * The preponderance of Liberals on this list reflects the response of Interim readers and not the newspaper or its editorial advisory board. We were surprised that readers did not suggest, for example, former Prime Minister [...]

Surrendering to rule by a judicial elite

On the 28th of January 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada handed down one of the most disastrous judgements in the history of Canada. The case was R. v. Morgentaler and at issue were a multitude of brazen violations of abortion restrictions in the Criminal Code by Henry Morgentaler. The duty of the judges was clear: they should have authorized the Crown [...]

Morgentaler gets his degree, but the fallout persists

Tony Gosgnach The Interim Although the dirty deed has been done, the fallout from the University of Western Ontario’s awarding of an honourary doctor of laws degree to abortionist Henry Morgentaler continues.

A suggestion for UWO

When the University of Western Ontario awarded notorious abortionist Henry Morgentaler an honourary doctor of laws degree as part of its spring convocation ceremonies this year, vice-president Greg Moran justified the move by claiming the choice of such a controversial recipient was in keeping with the university’s commitment to “open, courageous, respectful and civil debate,” which leads to “a humane, caring and [...]

It’s self evident!

Rory Leishman In the morning of June 16, one of the most impressive pro-life demonstrations in the history of London occurred outside the gates of the University of Western Ontario.

Dishonourable mention

There are many problems with universities in North America. They have been described as “island(s) of repression in a sea of freedom.” But the University of Western Ontario’s move to confer an honourary doctorate upon notorious Canadian abortionist Henry Morgentaler is a new low. The blatant political stunt by the university’s senate has not only irreparably damaged the reputation of UWO, but [...]

Western ignores protests and lost funds to award Morgentaler honourary degree

Tony Gosgnach The Interim The University of Western Ontario resembled more an armed camp under siege than a place of higher learning when Henry Morgentaler’s honourary degree roadshow rolled into London, Ont., June 16. At least five dozen police officers ringed the area around the university’s Alumni Hall as Morgentaler received the honourary doctor of laws degree before about 1,200 graduates and [...]

Protests against Morgentaler’s UWO honour hit fever pitch

Tony Gosgnach The Interim The University of Western Ontario’s intransigence in awarding an honourary doctor of law degree to notorious abortionist Henry Morgentaler may wind up costing it as much as an astounding $50 million in lost donations from alumni. Such a loss has the potential to disrupt London, Ont.’s economy as a whole. And as of this writing, 10,000 people had [...]

Morgentaler degree protests intensify
