Statistics show stalking rising rapidly
Thursday, November 30, 2000, Adrian Humphreys, National Post
Actually this is not what the report itself shows....just what a poltical interpreation of some numbers that is obvisously quite incorrect. The majority of "stalking" (which is actually crinminal harassment but only where the police lay charges) is between cohabitting couples in their own houses. How do you stalk when you belong there? The article just regurgitates bull blab.

Man beaters behind closed doors

More truth about the violence by women against men. It actually understates many of the stats.

Train AGs in Rudimentary Law
Monday, November 13, 2000, Rob Martin, Law Times
The legal profession pans Bill 117. Professor Martin missed the many of the people who spoke against this draconian bill, but his analysis is correct. The government of Mike Harris is seeking to turn the "justice" system in the province of Ontario back before the Magna Carta, back to the Dark Ages of Europe of a thousand years ago -- with the complete support of the other parties in the legislature. These people should be subject to their own proposed laws.
Men 'one phone call' from total destruction'
Saturday, November 4, 2000, Dave Brown, The Ottawa Citizen

Judge says no to voice from beyond the grave
Saturday, November 25, 2000, Peter Hum, The Ottawa Citizen

Globe...a day later and still the same problem.
Stalking cases on rise, Statscan says
Wednesday, November 29, 2000, Melanie Seal, The Globe and Mail
Of course, stalking -- all "criminal harassment" was considered as stalking for this gem of trash -- is a women's crime for which men are generally charged. However, if the Globe had bothered to read the report, they would see that most "stalking" takes place in the matrimonial home between co-habitting spouses. You get the feeling that these turkeys are measuring something else.

Bullies push their victims to suicide
Monday, November 27, 2000, Caroline Alphonso, The Globe and Mail

Christian values often a disguise for intolerance: Supreme Court judge
Friday, November 10, 2000, Richard Foot, National Post
The Supreme Court robes a sure indicator of injustice and intolerance, unfortunately, in htis country. Read on and see bigotry in motion by the SC hacks.

Mother charged with locking child in car boot
Thursday, November 9, 2000, John Glionna, The Age (Melbourne)
Mom kept child in trunk while working instead of paying a baby sitter. Thank heaves for the male co-worker who reported her. Of course, the (female) police officer tries to downplay the incident: "Is this the desperate measure of a worried mother or just one big lack of thought." Those nuturing skills that are supposed to be automatic seemed to have missed here.

Tuesday, November 7, 2000, Andy Russell, The Sun.

More women prisoners
Sunday, November 5, 2000, Padraic Murphy, The Age (Melbourne)
The rationalisation here is amazing, and incorrect. The police largely have ignored female crimes against the person, preferring to arrest any closeby man instead. It is now the most rapidly growing crime across the entire western world ; since they have run out of men to arrest, they are being forced to arrest women. Is the actual incidence of crime any higher? It does not appear so, just the arrests.

Who cares wins
Sunday, November 5, 2000, Margarette Driscoll, The Sunday Times
It is a shame that the chance of a man getting custody of his children after divorce is irrelevant as to whether he fights for it or not. The courts just don't look at most situations. 'But the simple fact that I was a man wanting to continue to care for my child was seen as somehow perverse.'

Saturday, November 4, 2000, Daniel McHardie, The Ottawa Citizen
Gloucester mayor Claudette Cain promises to stop discriminatory hiring practices in the fire department that result in incompetant fire fighters.

Study: Women stop breast-feeding to please husbands
Saturday, November 4, 2000,
Of course, what is the most interesting is that this is the reason women give -- the men actually indicated that they preferred her to keep breast-feeding. I think that this doctor needs to examine cultural realities -- do women not understand man, or are men just a convenient excuse for women to do what they want?

What does 'W.' read after the Bible?

Tests show Ontario pupils struggling with the basics
Friday, November 3, 2000, Richard Foot, National Post
As the emphasis in education is purposefully changed to accentuate what girls are best in (e.g. reading) and to drop what boys are good in (e.g. science), is there any doubt that marks will drop as the boys are disenfranchised? But isn't that Janet Ecker's objective?

Assistance offered for people in family court
Thursday, November 2, 2000, Dawn Walton, The Globe and Mail
A booklet....I wonder if its says "Give up, then give everything forever." After all, only the lawyers, psychologists and judges win.
