25 year old mother of five, Sharon Borg, kills her boyfriend, Ryan Lee, by stabbing him through the heart. What did this sterling women get -- 30 months in jail, thanks to the jury.

Wow....a woman lying and getting others to lie for her in a family law case -- that's unusual? What is unusual is that one courtroom had the integrity not to just accept the lies and pretend.

Monday, August 26, 2002, Cristin Schmitz, National Post
While Ontario Superior Court Justice Peter Hambly actually made a courageous decision against the harassment and false accusations of Louise Hockey-Sweeney (and certainly the amount is too small), if you read the decision, he also mandated this poor husband to basically look after her support for -- ever. That certainly is worth way more than $200,000.

When 99.9% of the women cannot meet the physical requirement of the job - carrying a soldier's load, handling a fire fighter's high pressure hose, or outrunning a forest fire - who must die from the rage against nature. I would note that the Supreme Court of Canada supports killing forest firefighters, so undoubtedly they will decide more must die.

The sins of our feminist mothers
Tuesday, July 23, 2002, Virginia Haussegger, The Age
The lie of feminism -- that women can wait indefinitely to have children. This lie is repeated every day in Canada by those women who would rather lie and bring other women down, that to give up the government booty they grab. The pain of finding out the truth.

Murder by Mercedes
Monday, August 5, 2002, Court TV
Dentist Clara Harris, who suspected her dentist husband of having an affair, still maintains that running him over three times with a Mercedes with his 16 year old daughter next to her was an accident. Of course, doing it in a parking lot of a hotel with her own investigator's camera running sort of provides some evidence otherwise. Undoubtedly, there will be a minimal sentence despite the horror and savagery involved.
