Fair play for daddies
Tuesday, February 19, 2002, Editorial, National Post
A clear and welcome cry for change from the revamped National Post. Good to see. Canadians agree, not what about our "representatives"?

Grits may axe plan to revamp custody laws
Monday, February 18, 2002, Janice Tibbetts and Michael Higgins, National Post
What the heck does this mean? Changes in custody rules are required, and they are tied to the very required changes to support laws.

Gender-bias issue raises 'optics' problem in domestic court
Thursday, February 21, 2002, Dave Brown, The Ottawa Citizen
Another fair judge rebels -- maybe there is hope for justice yet.

Yukon court narrows definition of harassment
Friday, February 1, 2002, Sarah Schmidt, National Post
Wow, a sane court!! Well, in Canada, we know that this won't last. The feminist groups are already into "letting a man out of jail is their choice to make -- and no!"

Canadians want to elect court
Monday, February 4, 2002, Chris Cobb, National Post
When a "pre-active" court system sets its own agenda and moves to implement social policy with no accountability and no limits in power, do you still have a free and democratic society? No. It needs changing in they way things happen. Judges aren't independent, and should not be treated as such if they refuse to listen.

Column misses underlying issues in Yates case
Thursday, February 28, 2002, Shari B. Mayman and Marlene R. Taube, Letter to the Editor, Montreal Gazette
A commentary that misses the point entirely by flapping a pseudo-feminist flag, yet still manages to prove the point of the initial article.
Women are getting away with murder
Sunday, February 24, 2002, Tommy Schnurmacher, Montreal Gazette
A good hard-hitting commentary on the justice system in North America and the different presumptive treatment of men and women.

Battle of the brains
Friday, February 22, 2002, Anne Marie Owens, National Post
The genders are different....and children still need both parents.

B.C. women's groups call for Minister's resignation
Friday, February 22, 2002, Ian Bailey, National Post

Lady, Your Slip is Showing
Tuesday, February 19, 2002, Wendy McElroy, ifeminists.com
The reality of the gender wage gap -- it is not what it is misrepresented as in the popular media.

Tuesday, February 12, 2002, Betsy Hart, Jewish World Review

Ragsdale: Change child-custody laws so dads aren't ditched
Friday, February 22, 2002, Shirley Ragsdale, Des Moines Register
Shirley Ragsdale finally recognises the fathers who are broken and eliminated from, or marginalised in, their children's lives. Parents are forever.

Exploiting deprived children for entertainment is sickening
Friday, February 22, 2002, Dave Brown, The Ottawa Citizen
Exploitation of the children of mothers and TV for child support cash is simply disgusting. We know these children will be brought up without morals from parents or the tube-babysitter.

Le May Doan forced to sing sexist anthem, Senator says
Friday, February 22, 2002, Jack Aubry, National Post
Gender discrimination not addressed when protecting children, but when singing about them.... Senator Cools to inject some sanity into the debate.

2 Parents Not Always Best for Children, Study Finds
Thursday, February 21, 2002, Robin Toner, New York Times
Another mistitled news article for a mistitled report. Proof that those serial relationships that mom has are damaging to the children -- they need their dad. I wonder if the New York Times really figures that people didn't now this already?

Girl escapes murder-suicide
Wednesday, February 20, 2002, Phil Bartsch and Ben Dorries, The Courier Mail
Six-year old girl escapes murderous mom. Her two-year old sister didn't. We are repeatedly told that women do not commit murder-suicides, although these (and straight murders) are not uncommon unfortunately.

Gehring committed no crime, but she's hardly innocent
Wednesday, February 20, 2002, Ian Gillespie, London Free Press
Comments on Canada's exported child rapist, the acquitted Ms. Gehring.

The father of all battles
Wednesday, February 20, 2002,Carol Coulter, Irish Times
An attempt to discredit the calls for reform of the divorce system by making allegations that have nothing to do with the system. As is typical, anti-male feminism is classed as female, and anti-feminist, equal parentig is class as male -- hardly. For example, apparently not be of the current school of feminism (known as "radical feminism" for dolts like Coyle) is anti-child. When the facts aren't there, talke about something else. I wonder if the calm writing is supposed to make the argument appear rational?

Gap yawns between politicians' words and our perceptions
Tuesday, February 19, 2002, Rory Leishman, London Free Press
U.K. study links the causes of child poverty and the increase in youth violence crime -- the disintegration of families and the increase in single-mother families.

Regan a victim of matriarchal justice
Monday, February 18, 2002, George Jonas, National Post
Senior politician railroaded under the "sex abuse" hysteria has the railroading confirmed by the Supreme Court. "We're not quite there, but getting close. The chances of a male accused of a sexual offence receiving a fair trial in Canada's matriarchal justice system is better than the chances of a Jew receiving a fair trial in Nazi Germany, but only just."

Domestic activists deemed a threat
Tuesday, February 19, 2002, Graeme Smith, The Globe and Mail
Free speech and dissent not considered a threat in North America. This is a free and democratic society?

Irish couple likely to face trial in France
Saturday, February 16, 2002, Lara Marlowe, Irish Times
Irish baby's death leads to French inquiry
Friday, February 15, 2002, Lara Marlowe, Irish Times
Mom kills, dad arrested -- not only in Canada it seems.

What about the kids?
Wednesday, February 13, 2002, Clare Dyer, The Guardian (UK)
U.K. judges find the misery they create, and rationalise it. More misery obviously to come from this bunch.

Parents lobby for public school with feminist slant
Tuesday, February 12, 2002, Heather Sokoloff, National Post
Having destroyed the schools, the feminists now want school without men to promote their agenda. It is interesting to note that boys do better in schools without girls, but girls do better with the boys. No wonder the feminists don't like that.

New look at 'deadbeat dads'
Monday, February 11, 2002, Cathy Young, Boston Globe
A good look at some of the issues, and myths, on non-custodial fathers.

Men redundant? Now we don't need women either
Sunday, February 10, 2002, Robin McKie, The Observer
Technology destroys another feminist myth. Surrogacy and now alternatives -- how the holy mystique gets battered. Now there is hope that men can save those foetuses that mothers don't want.

Work Stress, Divorce a Deadly Combo for Men - Study
Sunday, February 10, 2002, Reuters
Men die -- when it is hopeless the stress is unbearable for many, and deadly for all.

Too many victims recant their statements
Saturday, February 9, 2002, Mindelle Jacobs, Edmonton Sun
Part of the mythology of domestic violence. So much press and money to get women to call 911 that a call made from anger or a call by a neighbour MUST result in divorce. Now, if the woman does not agree, because the charge was false, mutual, or mistaken -- called "recanting" it has been decided to do the best to destroy the marriage any ways. It is well established at police stations that over half of the divorce-by-cop actions are denounced immediately by women. You can't have a multi-billion dollar "victim industry" without victims. Free choice in Canada? Hardly.

Domestic violence numbers didn't tell the whole 'truth'
Sunday, February 10, 2002, Ted Greenfield, Ajax News Advertiser
This is part of the implementation of the untruths presented at the the Hadley inquest. Many people know the truth -- and not everyone is an anxious to give away the blank cheque some groups want.

Domestic violence is not a women's issue or a men's issue, but a relationship issue
Friday, February 8, 2002, Kieran McKeown, Irish Times
Biased, but somewhat reasonable, words on domestic violence and an admission of the some of the discrepancies.

When reason gives way to psychobabble
Monday, February 4, 2002, John Waters, Irish Times
Biased and political "experts" are allowed to continue to wreck damage against families and children.

Recommendation 53: Electronic shackles
Saturday, February 16, 2002, Dave Brown, The Ottawa Citizen
A look at the recommendations from someone who read them.
This time, listen
Sunday, February 10, 2002, Editorial, Toronto Star
Star call for action. As usual they got some of it very wrong -- Ralph Hadley until the murder-suicide was only charged with breaching one order with respect to Gillian Hadley. The other "breachs" were related to the unsubstantiated and withdrawn charges -- the entrapment of the system.
Case spurs shelter plan
Saturday, February 9, 2002, Peter Small, Toronto Star
The cop who plays light with the truth, gets her money -- and a second job.
Jury speaks on murder-suicide
Sunday, February 10, 2002, Stephen Shaw, Ajax News Advertiser

Saturday, February 9, 2002, Peter Small, Toronto Star
Hadley jury urges action on domestic violence
Friday, February 8, 2002, James McCarten, Toronto Star
Reports on the jury recommendations -- which is a record of how these people see the future of relationships in this province, and less a look at this murder-suicide. Lots of money for all the parties with their hands out has been recommended here.
For more information, including a scanned copy of the recommendations, see the Hadley inquest section of this site.

Mother deemed insane
Thursday, February 21, 2002, George Kalogerakis, Montreal Gazette
Deluded mother killed child to stop fictional abuse
Thursday, February 21, 2002, George Kalogerakis, Montreal Gazette
Mother deemed insane: Ordered detained for poisoning girl
Thursday, February 21, 2002, George Kalogerakis, Montreal Gazette
Did the psychotic hysteria make Rachel Capra Craig insane, or does it give a basis to her psychotic delusions? This stuff is dangerous, as we have seen with ritual abuse and recovered memories. Why is this government so willing to push this junk out the door and kill children -- and parents?
Woman found not criminally responsible in death of handicapped daughter
Wednesday, February 20, 2002, Michelle MacAfee, Montreal Gazette
Another child's death from the artificial hysteria of sexual abuse by ALL men. Another murder-suicide without the suicide, but with a dead child. How many more must die so that the real abusers get more and more money?
THE MEDIA GOT THIS STORY WRONG TOO!!
Memorial held for slain Montreal teen
Saturday, March 24, 2001, The Toronto Star
Psych test for mom on trial
Thursday, March 22, 2001, Toronto Sun
Montreal mother on death watch
Thursday, March 22, 2001, Gary Dimmock, The Ottawa Citizen
Stripped naked and in the middle of a bare cell. That should help.
Poisoned girl's mom faces mental exam
Thursday, March 22, 2001, London Free Press
Looking for a reason to treat a mother differently than a father.
Disabled teen dies, mother is charged
Wednesday, March 21, 2001, Graeme Hamilton, National Post
Mother charged in `poison cocktail' death of disabled daughter
Wednesday, March 21, 2001, The Toronto Star
Montreal mother charged in disabled girl's death
Wednesday, March 21, 2001, Gary Dimmock and Jean-Francois Bertrand, The Ottawa Citizen
Montreal mom charged after handicapped girl dies from poison cocktail.
Wednesday, March 21, 2001, National Post
Surprised that a Mother, Rachel Capra-Craig, is charged, with the poisoning of her teenage daughter, Chelsea Craig. The police normally don't. It must be all the push after the Supreme Court's confirmation of Latimer's (a man) long prison sentence for helping his daughter end her intense pain and anguish.
Mother charged after disabled daughter's death
Wednesday, March 21, 2001, Ingrid Peritz, The Globe and Mail
Another attempted female murder-suicide that they say never happens. Again, only the murder part is successful.

Child support could reach $60,000 a month
Tuesday, February 5, 2002, Robert Matas, The Globe and Mail
More indication of just how idiotic, unfair and irresponsible the courts and the child support guidelines are. Amongst other comments, remember the best child support is two parents.

Dentist who killed husband freed in U.S.
Saturday, February 2, 2002, Darren Bernhardt, National Post
Slaughtered in March 1999, tried in Janaury, 2000 and out of jail now. Heck, it was only her husband she murdered and lied about. Would you go to have her cut your gums?
