In an article published by The Morning Call, Marlin Reinhart argues that the Second Amendment no longer serves a national purpose. He claims gun violence has reached epidemic proportions; this is why we need to reconsider the necessity of the Second Amendment. However, this is only looking at one side of the coin.
It’s June! Not only is it the start of summer, but it’s also LGBT Pride Month! June was chosen as the month for Pride in commemoration of the Stonewall riots that took place in 1969. For gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and trans people, Pride is a time to celebrate how far the LGBT community has come in their pursuit of rights. It’s also a time to perform activism for the rights that gay people still don’t have worldwide. The Pride season is ushered in by rainbow decked city streets and flashy neon Pride Parades. Largely, it’s a fun time for all. Every year, however, the religious right and traditionalists come out of the woodwork to call pride events nothing more than degenerative uninclusive pedophilic sex festivals.

Canada is seen by many as the bastion of liberalism. It helps all those that are in need, provides for all of the downtrodden, and Trudeau is the king of political correctness. It seems as if it is a haven for those slightly left of center – especially considering the recent legalization of marijuana. But this progressive machine has a dark underbelly: its socialized healthcare system has resulted in eugenicist practices against Indigenous people.
