In June, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked about the impact on his feminism of dealing with “tough women” in his cabinet. In response, Trudeau said: “It increases my feminism.

Are left-wing, activist, statue-removing city councils like New Westminster (Judge Matthew Begbie, 2019) and Victoria (Sir John A. Macdonald, 2018) being hypocritical and partisan, ignoring racist luminaries of the political left? Apparently, yes.

At some point, we are wrenched from the artificial bang-bang gun violence of the movies, TV and videogaming into the terrifying, permanent and traumatizing reality of gun violence in our societies.
