Valentini Event raises $13,000 for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Friday, February 15, 2008

Cupid was hard at work last night helping those attending the second-annual Valentini celebrate the spirit of Valentine’s Day and raising funds for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CCFF).

Over 150 guests, both singles and couples filled Alleycatz Lounge (located at Yonge and Eglinton) for a fun evening of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, dancing – and some match-making. While totals are still being finalized, it is expected that the event raised more than $13,000! Most importantly, every ticket sold and dollar spent on CCFF activities at Valentini will help bring the CCFF one step closer to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease.

CTV's obsession with puppygate

Tuesday, October 24, 2006

CTV, at least at first blush seems absolutely obsessed with the exchange that took place last week between Liberal MP David McGuinty and Foreign Affairs Minister Peter Mackay. While Environment Minister Rona Ambrose was answering a question about the government's Clean Air Act, McGuinty began heckling Mackay. He said something to the effect that if Mackay didn't care about the effect of climate change on people, "What about your dog?" The reference to Mackay's dog stems from what Peter Mackay did after girlfriend Belinda Stronach dumped him at the same time she dumped the Conservative Party. Peter did what most of us would do in a similar situation; he sought solace in the middle of a potato patch with his trusted dog. He just needed to be alone with his dog and of course a reporter from CP and a CBC camera crew. As taunts in the House of Commons go, McGuinty's was excellent; if only Ontario Premier Dalton had his brother's quick wit, but I digress.

Aishah Azmi -- did she win or did she lose?

Friday, October 20, 2006

Well, that depends upon which news you read, listen to or watch.

Aishah Azmi, 24, was employed as a teaching assistant (teaching English as a second language to 11-year-olds) in a school in Dewsbury in the north of England. Almost a year ago, Azmi was suspended from her job for refusing to remove her niqab, the Muslim veil that covers the entire face except for a slit across the eyes. It was not an insignificant fact that Azmi was not wearing the veil when she applied for her position. Children had complained that they had trouble understanding her when she spoke through her veil.

The media's obsession with the Amish

by Arthur Weinreb

Friday, October 6, 2006

Since last Monday's school shooting in Pennsylvania, the media can only be described as having an obsession with the Amish. Charles Carl Roberts, 32, walked into an Amish one room school house in Nickel Mines PA and ordered the boys out. He then bound the little girls and shot several of them in the head, execution style, before killing himself. Five little girls were killed and others were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Toronto media ignores "support our troops" rally

by Arthur Weinreb

Tuesday, October 3, 2006

A rally was held last Friday at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto to show support for our troops in Afghanistan. The rally was attended by about 3,500 people who formed a sea of red to show support for the men and women who are serving in the Canadian military. The names of the 37 soldiers who gave up their lives in Afghanistan since 2002 were read out and the speakers included the father of a slain soldier and Canadian icon, singer Gordon Lightfoot.

The media ignores the role of the media

by Arthur Weinreb

Monday, September 18, 2006

 

The media that is so good at doing in depth analysis of governments and other industries can never seem to examine the role of the media in today's society. A good illustration of the media ignoring the role of the media can be found in the editorial that appeared in the Toronto Sun last Thursday, the day after the shootings at Dawson College in Montreal.

As one fifth columnist to a dumbass columnist

By Gary Reid

Wednesday, September 6, 2006

Count me in as one of the"usual suspects." In this case, I join the ranks of "post-Christian churches (whatever they are), the Marxists, the fellow travelers and fifth columnists" who Toronto Sun columnist, Michael Coren, dismisses as irrelevant to his completely inane call to arms in a recent column: We should nuke Iran.

The Toronto Sun getting curiousor and curiousor

by Arthur Weinreb

Tuesday, September 5, 2006

The Toronto Sun, "the little paper that grew", has always had a reputation of being on the right of the political spectrum as well as having a populist bent. Now, it is difficult to determine if the newspaper has any consistent view of the world editorially. Lately some of their positions have been simply bizarre and Monday's editorial and comments are examples of the paper's now fuzzy thinking.

CBC"apology" wasn't really an apology

by Arthur Weinreb

Thursday, August 24, 2006

" TARGET="_blank">Earlier this month, CBC aired a news item from a Conservative caucus meeting that was being held in Cornwall Ontario. The piece showed a woman dressed in a chador outside of the building where the Tories were meeting. Referring to the war in the Middle East, she said that the burning of children and the killing has to stop. Her clip was followed by one of Prime Minister Stephen Harper speaking at a press conference, saying that he was not concerned or preoccupied with reactions to his policies within certain communities and that those actions were predictable.

Toronto Sun equates AIDS with terrorism

by Arthur Weinreb

Friday, August 18, 2006

Editorially at least, the Toronto Sun is coming close to the Toronto Star in the way it views the world.

As with other Toronto media, the Sun devoted pages and pages of ink to the 16th International Conference on AIDS that saw over 20,000 delegates descend on Toronto this week.
