Open Letter to Maryam Monsef: I’ve Shown You Mine, Now You Show Me Yours!

Yes, I was born in the centre of the world!

Yes, Greenwich, I was born in the centre of the world!

Hi Maryam,

I’ve been watching the media’s coverage of your “birthergate” controversy closely since it began. I don’t envy you right now, politics is a dirty game. That said, you seem like a smart cookie, so I’m guessing you knew what you stepped into when you decided to launch your campaign.

If we’ve learned anything from Barak Obama’s experience with his own “birther” incident it’s that questions like these can be corrosive, and disruptive to the real business at hand. Part of Obama’s challenge was self-created. He could have nipped the issue in the bud if he released his birth certificate back in 2008 when Hillary Clinton’s people kicked-off the whispering campaign that he might not have been born in the USA. His decision to wait until 2011 to release his birth certificate was a serious mistake.

Frustrated by the media and administration’s one-sided response to Jordan Peterson’s October 11 free speech rally, a group of concerned University of Toronto students gathered together to draft a response. It’s a brilliantly written letter that outlines the racism, violence, and defamation they were subjected to for daring to publicly speak their views on political correctness.

The students have challenged the university to respond to their mistreatment, demanding that the administration takes a non-partisan approach to political conflicts  and take action to once again make the University of Toronto a safe place for people to express their thoughts. Posted below is the full text of their powerful open letter:

Exclusive: UofT Free Speech Opponent Arrested for Assault (Feat. “Smugglypuff”)

On October 11th Professor Jordan Peterson held a demonstration at the University of Toronto to voice his concerns about political correctness. As expected, the radicals at the university’s student unions showed up to protest and shut down the professor’s speech. They (sort of) accomplished this by blasting white noise through a public address speaker system that was rented by a student union leader named Cassandra Williams.

If you’re one of the unfortunate people who relied on mainstream media reports from outlets like CityNews and the Globe & Mail – or the intentionally unbalanced reports by the campus Varsity newspaper – it’s likely you have a complete misunderstanding of what happened that day.

One of the most memorable moments of the protest was when Rebel Media’s Lauren Southern was assaulted by a trans woman who tried to grab away her microphone. Moments later, a protester who the Internet named “Smugglypuff” blatantly lied to police officers claiming that nothing happened. But Smugglys story doesn’t end there, turns out he/she/xe/ve/thon/hu/ge/zee is now facing criminal charges- but not for the reason you might think.

Toronto Police Board Member Caught Tweeting While Driving (Feat. Shelley Carroll)

Isn't that illegal Shelley?

Isn’t that illegal Shelley?

If you followed the media and politico’s constant barrage of attacks on Rob Ford, you’re probably aware of the two times he was caught using his mobile phone while driving. Of all the attacks against Ford, the criticism about his distracted driving was entirely fair- not only is it illegal to do so, but it recklessly puts other people’s lives at risk.

Ford’s opponents argued that as mayor he has the responsibility to act and behave as a role model. The Toronto Police service spoke out about the incident and issued a plea for Ford to get himself a driver. The mayor rejected the request at first, but ultimately broke down and hired a City of Toronto security guard to do the job.

One would think that after all of the negative media Ford received for distracted driving that other politicians would have learned by now that it’s a bad idea to do this. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case for City Councillor Shelley Carroll. Ignoring the fact it’s illegal to use one’s phone while driving, and that it’s a horrible example for a member of the Toronto Police Services Board to be breaking the law, Carroll flagrantly tweeted a message to Newstalk 1010’s John More from the Don Valley Parkway this morning.
