The “transgender agenda” – censorship, enforcement, control

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

“If they fine me, I won’t pay it. If they put me in jail, I’ll go on a hunger strike. I’m not doing this. And that’s that. I’m not using the words that other people require me to use. Especially if they’re made up by radical left-wing ideologues.” – Professor Jordan Peterson, University of Toronto.

The above quote is from Anthony Furey’s article “Once they’re done with Jordan Peterson, they’ll come for you” appearing in the Toronto Sun on Oct. 29th. (1) And the cause of all this? Professor Jordan has had the temerity to point-blank refuse to accommodate those of his students who wish to be addressed as “ne”, “ve”, “ze”, “xe” etc.

The scatter-gun approach to dealing with “discrimination”

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

“Douglas Cardinal, an officer of the Order of Canada, has filed applications to the Ontario Superior Court, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario and the Canadian Human Rights Commission, arguing that the Cleveland Indians’ team name and mascot – Chief Wahoo, a cartoon man with red skin and a feather in his headband – are offensive and discriminatory.”

The Cleveland Indians have used at least two versions of Chief Wahoo as a mascot since 1951 so far as I can gather, and one may reasonably wonder why it took so long for Mr. Cardinal (who is 82) to get around to complaining.

“I got the flyer. Going to clear out my neighbours’ mailboxes”

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

“A Toronto woman took it upon herself to censor a pro-life education effort from her neighbors this week… CBC News reports Liz Phillips removed pro-life fliers from her neighbors’ mailboxes after she discovered one in her own. According to police, Phillips’ actions are not illegal because the fliers were not addressed or processed by the post office… The pro-abortion woman said she went around her Roncesvalles neighborhood on Wednesday and removed all the fliers from her neighbors’ mailboxes. She replaced them with her own flier, explaining that she had the pro-life literature at her home for anyone who wanted to see them, according to the report.” (Emphasis added) – “Pro-abortion woman steals pro-life fliers from neighbors Mailboxes” (1).

Nairobi-born Black hates Canada, won’t quit complaining

Sunday, April 10th, 2016

“To be a black Muslim woman in Toronto is to feel deep isolation, the result of omnipresent systemic anti-black, patriarchal and Islamophobic discrimination… forces that torment me and members of my community… and so two months ago I tweeted, “Plz Allah give me strength not to cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today… Our lives are plagued by institutional and individual anti-black racism that compromises our access to safety, economic freedom, proper health care, food, housing, employment, education and culturally restorative support services. To be black in this city is to fight to survive.” – (emphasis added) – Yusra Khogali, co-founder of “Black Lives Matter Toronto” (1).

“Native discount” sentencing works against aboriginals…

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

“(Convicted murderer) Kokopenace, has appealed his sentence. He says it was unfair. It was too harsh. Because, you see, Kokopenace is aboriginal himself… And he claims the trial wasn’t fair because aboriginals were underrepresented in the jury pool… Incredibly, the Ontario Court of Appeal agreed with the grounds for appeal – they said the jury pool didn’t have enough aboriginal people in it, so that was racist.” – Ezra Levant.
