Margaret Wente on the delusional students
The Blogging Tories
Margaret Wente hits it out of the park with this article. There are a lot of kids who shouldn't be in university. Many of them will graduate and not have jobs in their field. I love how Wente calls it victim stydies( like I do) In fact, Quebec’s students have good reason to be furious. They should be furious at the professors who tell them that their cause is just, and who have deluded them

 It was great to see Mark Steyn. He was in conversation with Heather Reisman at INdigo bookstore in Toronto. Steyn was funny and witty and totally on point on subjects ranging from Islam to the twilight of Western civilization. His questioner was hardly his match. I hope he comes to the Great Dominion more often. It was also great to see Lord Black, Exra and a whole bunch of my Blogging

My latest letter in the NP. Having children is an expensive venture. If you can’t afford IVF can you really afford children? Free IVF has encouraged many women with low chances of conceiving to try IVF even though their chances are still low with IVF. As someone who believes in free markets, I oppose “free” IVF. It is an elective procedure, like abortion, and neither should be paid for. R
