Shrill backlash to men’s rights advocate

For more than two years I wrote a men’s column for a rival Canadian daily newspaper. I’d never even considered men’s issues before, but the editor of the publication wanted the subject to be covered,...

The times are a changin’: If it ever hopes to see the White House...

It’s really quite simple. If the Republicans want to win a presidential election, they have to win the support of the only constituency that is large enough to make a significant difference and is...

Morality and tolerance

Editor's note: American Pastor Terry Jones, who is known for his blathering about burning the Qur'an in 2010,  was denied entry into Canada this week. Jones had been due to speak at a rally...

The Emperor is naked

What a sheer bloody joy it was to see Barack Obama, peace be upon him, exposed as the mediocre, media-inflated, self-important regional politician he so obviously is. The emperor was revealed as having no clothes...

Bullies or victims? Fairness and proportionality strike out in sport and sexuality

So, a guy who plays pro sport is an idiot. Good Lord, I can’t believe it! I mean, who knew? Yes, Yunel Escobar was dumb enough to write on his face in Spanish something akin...

A night with the fanatics

On Tuesday evening, I covered a 9/11 vigil in Toronto, and a counter-protest across the street organized by Islamic and leftist groups calling for the return of Omar Khadr. We didn’t know that as this...

The untold story

So the circle completes. Back in 1982, Channel 4 launched in Britain. It was, believe it or not, the country’s first new television network in a generation. I was fortunate enough to write a major series...

It’s all about power: Al-Quds Day a celebration of hatred and terrorism.

Beyond the hatred, the racism and the anger, there’s a certain irony surrounding Al-Quds Day, commemorated this weekend internationally and to its shame — in Toronto. The event was founded by the Ayatollah Khomeini, and...

A minute of silence

It’s that time again. Every four years we have it, and it’s always worth the wait. Yes, time for boring old hacks to write dull, dull, horribly dull and predictable columns about how the Olympics...

Church, state, hijabs

Lots to write about this week, so I have to be a little eclectic. In Quebec a girl was told she couldn’t play soccer while wearing a hijab and the usual suspects screamed “Islamophobia.” Actually there...

Assad: The devil we know.

We do not understand the Arab world. We think we do, we like to think we do, but we don’t. It’s far more complex and nuanced than we give it credit for, and few parts...

A hateful paradox: Queers Against Israeli Apartheid oppose what is really the bitter truth.

A homophobe writes, so to speak. Actually I don’t hate anyone, and I’ve not been frightened of, or intimidated by, much since working in Belfast and the West Bank. But because I oppose same-sex marriage...

Football is part of the bloodstream, and it unifies more than divides

Even though I’ve lived in Canada half my life, I feel extraordinarily European whenever soccer tournaments come around. Sport is visceral, or at least should be, and anyone who refers to franchises and wages clearly...

Not sorry enough: Cops’ apology to humiliated dad falls short

The name Jesse Sansone may not register with most readers, but how about the Crayon Dad? This was the 26-year-old man who earlier this year in Kitchener, Ontario, was handcuffed, arrested, and strip-searched by the...

In Canada too?: Church can’t be bullied into accepting homosexuality

So it’s happened. In a sordid attempt to deflect from scandals and mismanagement, the Liberal government of Ontario has told the Catholic school system it has to do what it’s told, not be Catholic and...
