Hey Kathleen Wynne! This is wrong: Catholic school principal shuts down Grade 6 students' project on gay rights

Polly Hamilton, left, and Quinn Maloney-Tavares, both 11, wanted to do a social justice school project on gay rights, but their principal at an Ottawa Catholc Catholic School vetoed the idea. I'm getting really tired of Catholic school...Show More Summary

The sensational 'The Way He Looks' plays at Toronto's Brazil Film Fest this Saturday...

Opening scene from director Daniel Ribeiro's 'The Way He Looks' I sadly missed a previous Toronto screening for Daniel Ribeiro's feature film 'The Way He Looks,' at the Inside Out festival back in May. That's why I was thrilled to learn...Show More Summary

Rob Ford still lying and delusional to the end...

Simple minds cling to their simple talking points:“These guys are getting fully loaded... It’s nonsense....I’ll be on them. I’ll try to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”Despite everything the jackass Rob Ford put Toronto through the...Show More Summary

Campaign for Harper's climate change denier in Whitby-Oshawa now complains about political smears

It's extremely rich of Harper Conservatives to be complaining about political smears coming from their political opponents in the Whitby-Oshawa byelection, which takes place tomorrow to fill the seat formerly held by Jim Flaherty. The...Show More Summary

By-elections show federal NDP is no longer a national force or real alternative to the Conservatives

I'm disappointed that Canada has another climate change denier going to Ottawa in Pat Perkins, the new Conservative MP for Whitby-Oshawa. But I was impressed with the ability of Liberal candidate Celina Caesar-Chavannes to increase her party's support from 14% in 2011 to 41% yesterday. Show More Summary

Sunday round-up: the confusing Horwath hangs on; gorgeous 'Malificent' star hints at bisexuality...

This Martin Regg Cohn opinion piece pretty much sums up most of my thoughts on Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, whose unfortunate leadership was renewed yesterday by skeptical NDP delegates at their Toronto convention. She may have...Show More Summary

Justin Trudeau to protesters: 'Take a minute to explain'; Harper would've had them tackled and arrested

What a remarkable contrast! As we know, Stephen Harper has such tight restrictions at his events, only card-carrying Conservatives with long party histories can get in. No one except the most elite gets anywhere close to him. And most definitely, uninvited guests or average Canadians get zero chance to interact with him, let alone speak to the crowd.

I'm with Greg Sorbara on ending separate school funding in Ontario

I could write today about Russia's latest petty move in that country's despicable campaign against LGBT people by removing a memorial to Apple founder Steve Jobs in St Petersburg after the man who succeeded him at the helm of the company, Tim Cook, came out as gay. Show More Summary

John Tory wins! Homophobic school trustee Sotiropoulos loses! Toronto moves forward!

I'm glad that John Tory won the Toronto mayoralty and that the Ford era is now over. I hoped to see more progressive councillors get elected across Toronto, but sadly the power of incumbency in many places is tough to beat. Kristyn Wong-Tam won in my ward, which is great. Show More Summary

My final decision: John Tory, Kristyn Wong-Tam and Chris Moise all have my support!

It has been a grueling municipal election race in Toronto since it began all the way back in January, when the repugnant incumbent Rob Ford jumped into the race for mayor on the first day he could despite his many scandals. The lastShow More Summary

Check out 80s musical spoof 'Eternity: The Movie' at the Carlton this week...

Tonight, my boyfriend and I saw and thoroughly enjoyed the charming 80s musical spoof comedy film, 'Eternity: The Movie,' at Toronto's Carlton Cinema. I wanted to give the flick a shout-out. Directed by Ian Thorpe and starring the very...Show More Summary

Students want consequences for trustee after tweet about transgendered people

The newspaper reports on this were awesome to read. But the TV story below from Global really does it justice: "A dozen Toronto high school students are striking back at a Toronto District School Board (TDSB) school trustee over some...Show More Summary

Habitual liar Doug Ford denies he called female reporter "a little bitch"; Toronto students fight back against bigoted school trustee

Several journalists have reported that Toronto mayoral candidate Doug Ford, the thuggish brother of Rob Ford, said after last night's CTV debate: "I can't stand that little bitch." Ford was referring to Toronto Star reporter Jennifer Pagliaro after a post-debate media scrum. Show More Summary

Rattlesnake Logic

After the shock and sadness wears off, there's no doubt that many conservatives will use yesterday's attack by a lone gunman in Ottawa to justify their ongoing anti-Jihad crusade. I noticed a few conservative-sounding Canadians on the...Show More Summary

Royson James: "Why I’m voting for John Tory"

I'm pretty much in full agreement with Royson James today. Barring some last minute Nanos poll that shows Chow overtaking DoFo for second place in the Toronto mayor race (that would allow me the indulgence of a Chow vote for one last...Show More Summary

Thug liar Rob Ford tries to intimidate voters at advanced polls into voting for his brother...

What legitimate purpose could Rob Ford have for showing up at advanced polls in Ford Nation country (Wards 7 and 8) and in swing areas like Ward 17 (which sadly voted for Ford in 2010) over the last few days other than to try to intimidate voters into supporting his brother in the mayor's race?I thought Rob Ford was battling cancer.

Chretien reminds us of the noble role Canada once played in the world before Stephen Harper...

There has been much self-righteous and misguided criticism of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau for his decision to vote against Canadian combat action against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (or ISIL.)Conservative types with their...Show More Summary

But then again, Olivia Chow gave her best speech yet last night

I must admit that I'm very torn still about how to vote in the Toronto election, despite my last post.Some, including myself, previously have said Olivia Chow hasn't articulated a clear and inspiring vision in this campaign. But this...Show More Summary

Conservatives like John Tory seem to suffer from ideologically-driven mental blocks when it comes to "privilege"...

Ugh, just when he was doing so well, just days after I endorsed him on this blog, Toronto mayoral frontrunner John Tory told reporters last night that he doesn't believe "white privilege" exists.It happened in a media scrum after a Jane-Finch...Show More Summary

"It's about defeating the Fords, stupid." So I'm voting for John Tory!

Bob Hepburn delightfully sums up the state of affairs for about 65%-75% of Torontonians for whom the only issue in this municipal election is kicking the Fords out of the mayor's office after four years of woeful damage to our city's...Show More Summary
