Skori said it would be inappropriate for the school to share "any teachings that denigrate or vilify someone's sexual orientation." {..snip..}

    Trudeau complimented Trump but downplayed his importance to the Canada-U.S. relationship in an interview at the University of Toronto on Thursday, saying that the U.S. president “knows how to interact socially on a very effective level.” According to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, U.S. President Donald Trump is a willing listener with good social skills who keeps his word and is open to changing his mind when presented with opposing positions. Trudeau, who has made a determined effort to avoid angering the mercurial president, offered his complimentary assessment in a public interview with two New York Times journalists at the University...

    The FBI is investigating as an "act of terrorism" a knife attack on a Michigan airport police officer Wednesday by a man yelling "Allahu Akbar." The stabbing at Bishop International Airport, in the city of Flint, comes amid a wave of jihadist-inspired attacks in Europe, most recently a foiled bomb assault at a train station in Belgium. US officials identified the suspected assailant, who is in custody and cooperating with investigators, as a 49-year-old Canadian resident from Quebec named Amor Ftouhi. "We're investigating this incident today as an act of terrorism," FBI special agent David Gelios told a news conference,...

    "Never complain, never explain" was Disraeli's advice, and that holds as good in our touchy age of instant Twitterstorms and politically correct eggshells as it did when he first commended it to Queen Victoria. It's good advice for the Queen's viceroys, too. Consider by way of a cautionary tale the Rt Hon David Johnston, Governor General of Canada. Full disclosure: I am not a great fan of His Excellency, as I thought he behaved disgracefully in evicting my old boss Conrad Black from the Privy Council and the Order of Canada. Nevertheless, he occupies the second highest office in the...

    Do you think imposing so-called transgenderism on children as a sexual norm might be harmful to their moral development? Do you question the legitimacy of using made up so-called gender-neutral pronouns as replacements for the standard English words "he" and "she"? If you answered yes, or even maybe, to either of those questions, then, as of today, you are in violation of Canada's Human Rights Code, and subject to fines, re-education, or – should you refuse comply and repent – prison time.Canada's Senate has passed a "controversial" (read: fascistic) new law, Bill C-16, which adds "gender identity" and "gender expression"...

    Former President Barack Obama in Montreal this week warned the world against income inequality and the concentration of wealth, all while pulling down $7,700 per minute at his $400,000 speech. Obama’s first post-presidency address on Canadian soil was loaded with anti-Trump, anti-capitalism and anti-American rhetoric. Big surprise there. Obama said that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful, NBC reported and noted that Obama is now “striving to be an international community organizer.” He said the U.S. and other nations showed there was a better way “in creating an international order that was...

    CAMROSE, Alberta, June 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A Canadian Christian school has been ordered by a public school board that it partners with to refrain from reading or studying “any scripture that could be considered offensive to particular individuals.” Included are passages from the New Testament that speak against fornication, adultery, idolatry, and witchcraft. Cornerstone Christian Academy (CCA) in Kingman, Alberta, has been ordered by the Battle River School Division (BRSD) to refrain from reading or studying portions of the Bible that the board says might contravene Alberta’s human rights legislation.  The Christian school was incorporated in 1986 as a ministry of...

    On 10 May, 1953, Bella Twin was hunting small game with her partner, Dave Auger, along an oil exploration cutline south of Slave Lake, in Alberta, Canada. She was 63 years old.They saw a large grizzly bear coming toward them. Wishing to avoid an encounter, they hid off the side of the cut.But the bear kept coming closer and closer.  The bear got so close that Bella Twin thought it less risky to shoot the bear than to not shoot it.  It was probably only a few yards away. Some accounts say 30 feet. Perhaps she saw it stop...

    Sam Panopoulos, who has died aged 83, leaves a legacy that has delighted, confused and appalled diners worldwide. Often at the same time. Panopoulos is the Canadian man who invented Hawaiian pizza, a dish so divisive it led to a presidential outburst this year. He passed away in hospital suddenly on Thursday. Panopoulos emigrated to Canada from Greece in 1954 when he was 20, eventually going on to own and operate several successful restaurants with his two brothers. It was in one of those restaurants in 1962 that Panopoulos was inspired to add canned pineapple to pizza.

    It is decision time for a world order based on liberal values, former U.S. president Barack Obama said Tuesday in Montreal, where he issued a rousing call for citizens everywhere to defend its gains. Obama painted a stark picture of the global upheaval wrought by globalization, technological advances and climate change. He suggested that the progress made since the end of the Second World War is threatened by an unwillingness to adapt to social change. "It's been clear for some time that the world is at an inflection point," he told a crowd of some 6,000 who packed the Palais...

    Canada’s foreign minister said Tuesday that the country must spend more on its military now that the U.S. is questioning its role of global leadership. Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland told Parliament that relying on the “the U.S. security umbrella would make us a client state.” She said Canada is committed to make a “substantial investment” in its military and said the defense minister would elaborate on that Wednesday. Freeland said Canadians will always be grateful for the outsized role the U.S. has played in the world and Canada will seek to persuade Washington that its continued leadership is in the...

    A Scarborough woman swore allegiance to ISIS in a Scarborough courtroom where she appeared to face allegations that she swung a golf club at hardware store employees while screaming threats and Islamic chants. Before Tuesday’s proceedings started, Justice of the Peace Alice Napier asked Rehab Dughmosh, 32, to identify herself in court — but the accused woman didn’t initially answer the question. “ISIS — I pledge to the leader of the believers — Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,” blurted the woman through an interpreter. Al-Baghdadi is the leader of the Sunni militant jihadist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS)...

    Over the weekend we covered the demonstration at Parliament Hill in Ottawa, where opponents of the M-103 anti-blasphemy motion gathered to protest the encroachment of sharia in Canada and declare their support for free speech. Predictably, the “anti-fascists” came out in even greater numbers to confront the peaceful protestors, and there were at least two significant incidents of violence. One of them, as I mentioned earlier today, was an attack on the journalist Kevin J. Johnston, who nearly lost the top of his ear to an antifa knife. His cameraman was beaten and seriously injured. As I mentioned in one...
