This past Victoria Day weekend was Imagine No Religion 6, and we have two interviews for you this week: Dr. Michael Shermer and The Amazing Randi graciously agreed to being interviewed, brokered by Left At The Valley’s Kevin Francis. (Thanks, Kevin!)
It’s naturopathy awareness week, and we wanted to make sure everyone is aware that there is no such thing as alternative medicine. Rather, it’s alternative TO medicine. In this, the 164th installment, we look at the tragedy that unfolded in northern Alberta while I was away; legislation covering physician assisted dying was introduced by the federal government and we go over the major points; a verdict was handed down, rather quickly too, in the trial of the parents of Ezekiel Stephan, who died from a wholly treatable illness in Lethbridge; CFI Canada presented a petition to Premier Brad Wall to end prayer in the Saskatchewan legislature; the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is trying to improve its image in Canada by promoting the less evil side of Saudi culture without all the burkas and severed heads; more voices of dissent in Bangladesh have been violently silenced; and finally, more from the Regressive Left Files. At the University of Massachusetts, regressives attempted to disrupt a talk they didn’t like, and at Oxford, law professors rudely find out what regressive left means.
