Divorce deals never final: court
Saturday, April 28, 2001, Cristin Schmitz, National Post
A totally inappropriate judgement that rushes to throw out the concept of personal responsibility for women -- at the cost solely of a man that had anything to do with her. This is simply the trend of the courts to demonise men while making women weak and incapable of being trusted to make even the most basic of decisions. We all end up victimised by these judges, who are totally unaccountable to anyone. It is time for radical change to get rid of these power-mongers who are set on destroying us all. You can read this insane decision at http://www.ontariocourts.on.ca/decisions/2001/april/miglin.htm.

Supreme Court fails on threat to silence groups, study says
Friday, April 6, 2001, Kirk Makin, The Globe and Mail
Supreme Court unwilling to even control its own biases. It should be noted that the government-funded anti-family and anti-father groups are the ones more often intervening -- and that pro-father and pro-family groups are not there. It tells a lot about bias and power.

Backbencher calls Fry a 'Burning Cross Lady' with anti-male views
Saturday, April 28, 2001, Jane Taber, National Post
Roger Gallaway nails it again. Unfortunately, it is still only figuratively. If you missed the reference to the crosses, see the end of this index file for many references to Fry's burnt offerings.

Child custody survey affront to Parliament: critics
Monday, April 23, 2001, Chris Cobb, National Post

'They were here to take my son away'
Saturday, September 11, 1999, Gary Dimmock, The Ottawa Citizen
Yet another horror courtesy of a Superior Court judge [Justice Lawrence Morin], a vindicative mother [Cheryl Polikoff] and a biased police force [Const. Mike Harwood and Sgt. Sue Blacklock]. I wish it was something unusual, but this is because the "child" was a 22 year old, Grade 12 graduate being alleged to be a 12 year old equivalent.

Loss of loved one link to child violence
Tuesday, April 3, 2001, Natalie O'Brien, The Australian

Breast cancer: abortion's hidden peril
Thursday, April 12, 2001, Babette Francis, The Age (Melbourne)
Abortions have a strong statistical correlation with the appearance of breast cancer. Not just co-incidence, it seems -- 27 out of 34 studies on the risk show it is real.

Mother jailed for scalding baby girl
Tuesday, April 10, 2001, Ainsley Pavey, The Age (Melbourne)
While judge said that treating her baby like this was "just stress", he actually did something to help the child. Of course, the common law husband who tried to take the fall for the woman got three years probation, while she got 9 months in jail. At least he gets to raise the kids -- until she comes back for the next child.

Men: ad industry's new target
Friday, April 6, 2001, John Heinzl, The Globe and Mail
Not so new, but certainly a large social problem because it is producing a lot more bigotry.

Woman accused of killing daughter fit to stand trial
Thursday, April 5, 2001, National Post

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 confirmatin of Latimer's (a man) long prison sentence for helping his daughter end to her intense pain and anguish.
Mother charged after disabled daughter's death
Wednesday, March 21, 2001, Ingrid Peritz, The Globe and Mail

Didn't fund cross-burning: Fry
Saturday, March 31, 2001, Maria McClintock, Toronto Sun
She funded them alright....maybe not for the specific job of defacing churches, burning crosses, or acting like idiots, but only because the funds don't have such specifics attached to them.
It's been the week of the liar. Plus ça change
Saturday, March 31, 2001, Heather Mallick, The Globe and Mail
A frothy piece that still condemns Fry. The author does seem to forget that a Minister of the Crown in the area of her supposed responsibilities has a higher ethical and moral duty than an MP or a used gold-mine salesman.

Cross burning
Thursday, March 29, 2001, Newton Steacy, Letter to the Editor of the National Post
An important point being overlooked. The burning of crosses in Canada were last publicly done in Montreal by the groups that Hedy Fry's ministry sponsors in the petulant vandalism of churches by feminist groups on "International Women's Day". Hedy paid for those crosses, and sure doesn't condemn those burnings.

Off with her Hedy
Tuesday, March 27, 2001, Paul Sullivan, The Globe and Mail
"It wasn't even off the cuff, passed in the heat of a scrum. It was a prepared statement. The Secretary of State for Multiculturalism had to think about it." This was a purposeful slur by the "Minister of Mouthyculturalism".
Leaping into Fry-ing pan

Fry's tactic: shoot first, ask questions later

Remarks cost Fry credibility, MP asserts
Saturday, March 24, 2001, Shawn McCarthy, The Globe and Mail

Cross-burning incidents mentioned by MP
Thursday, March 22, 2001, The Globe and Mail
She is not just an MP, she is the cabinet minister who is supposed to be making sure these sorts of things do not happen. She was speaking from a researched and prepared text from her office. She should not be lying.
Prince George has hate crimes, Fry says
Thursday, March 22, 2001, The Globe and Mail
Hedy Fry, Minister of State for Multiculturism and the Status of Women shows get caught in her biased lies. Twice in a month this decrepit woman shows her lack of integrity and competance. It could only be in the government that such a woman could be given a platform. The crosses are burning in her own Ministry and they have for the last too-many years.
