Scotland’s schools to be world’s first to offer LGBTI inclusive education

The move was warmly welcomed by politicians and gay rights campaigners, but there was concern from religious groups that families who were not committed to “radical LGBT politics” would feel isolated.

Last night the Scottish Government confirmed that the initiative would run in conjunction with its Curriculum for Excellence, which takes effect from when children enter school aged four or five until they leave.

Terrible: Bob Rae Compares Canadian Yellow Vests To ‘Brownshirts’

Sadly, former failed NDP Premier of Ontario and former federal Liberal interim leader Bob Rae has chosen the path of demonizing working class Canadians in the Yellow Vest movement, instead of taking the time to listen and understand the legitimate concerns many Canadians have about our economy, energy industry, immigration system, and more.

Political Correctness: Much more harmful than people realize

Political Correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better.

When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed.

Money in the bank: Ottawa looks for new ways to tax dormant accounts

Millions of dollars owed to ordinary Canadians sits unclaimed in dormant bank accounts and terminated pension plans — and the federal Department of Finance is looking at fresh ways to tax some of that idle money and to reduce or eliminate any interest paid on it.

James Watson, 90, who shared a 1962 Nobel Prize for discovering that DNA was a double helix, lost his job in 2007 for expressing racist views.

On Friday January 11 he was stripped of several honorary titles by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, in New York, which he once headed.

The lab said it was reacting to Mr Watson’s remarks in a television documentary aired earlier this month.
