Wednesday, November 24, 1999, Sean Fine, The Globe and Mail

I wonder how many bullets it takes to humiliate her?

Brother's Search for Twin Revealed a 20-Year-Old Killing
Friday, November 19, 1999, Alan Feuer, New York Times
Interesting article. It is readily apparent that this is another failure of the child protection agencies to look beyond their own bigotry. Note as well that the long-lost son "still lives in a homeless shelter and works as a security guard to support his daughter, his wife and her four children"... the latter clearly not his children. The abuse from the "system" continues.

Saturday, November 20, 1999, Elaine Carey, Toronto Star
The UN and Election Canada's great idea of giving children a choice of which right (only one) they like -- as if all the rights weren't important.

Wrestling with the Boy Code
Friday, November 19, 1999, Sean Fine, The Globe and Mail
So women bringing up boys to the women's "Boy Code", damage the boys. I should be surprised? Of course, it is not the women's fault for doing it...it must be a cultural thing since these women apparently run a male culture. I sometimes wonder if this guy reads what he writes.

Thursday, November 18, 1999, Edison Stewart, Toronto Star
Supreme Court backtracks on their extremely stupid decision on native fishing rights but only after a week of riots and destruction.

Guardian of justice
Saturday, November 6, 1999, Edison Stewart, Toronto Star

With 92% of men denied their children, with 97% of the jails full of men, with a court that will convict acquitted "defendants" without hearing a single witness, with a system that denies the entry of pertinent evidence, with children held as profit centres, with a court that backs away from child abuse such as alienation, ....
