Later in the school year, a prayer was offered at a mandatory student assembly. The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (jccf.ca) represents Candice Servatius in her action against School...

Lisa Bildy, The Post Millennial, November 6, 2109 It takes only a cursory examination of our tumultuous human history to appreciate that periods of liberty—when individual citizens are largely free to speak, think, believe and act as they choose—are vanishingly rare and must be jealously guarded. In the span of three days last week, incidents in Toronto and Vancouver demonstrated that shockingly few people seem to understand this, and fewer still actually care. Both incidents involved radical feminist Meghan Murphy, who had speaking engagements booked at the Toronto Public Library and...

Embracing big government leads to violations of Charter freedoms

Posted on Nov 4, 2019 in Latest Updates

John Carpay, The Post Millennial, November 4, 2109   “He who pays the piper calls the tune,” goes the old saying. The person who pays for something has the right to decide how that thing operates and what it does. This also holds true for the government, as Canada’s religious minorities are finding out the hard way. Mill Stream Bible Camp, a 90-minute drive north-east of Toronto, welcomes all children to its summer camps, where they enjoy swimming, archery, canoeing, basketball and other ways to experience fun, recreation and hope. The same goes for Mount Traber Bible Camp in Nova...

Once again, security fee censorship punishes the victim

Posted on Oct 31, 2019 in Latest Updates

John Carpay, The Post Millennial, September 30, 2109 Like so many other Canadian colleges and universities, Mohawk College in Hamilton is asking the wrong people to pay for event security. The victims of Mohawk’s security fee censorship are People’s Party of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier, and American talk show host Dave Rubin.  Rubin interviewed Bernier at a ticketed event on Sunday September 29, using the 1,000-seat McIntyre Art Centre, rented from Mohawk College.  Threatened “protests” almost derailed the event as Mohawk College increased the “security fees” by an...
