Social media arose, in part, as an alternative to the so-called ‘mainstream’ media, an empowering communication tool for individuals made possible by the incredible technology of the Internet.

With mainstream media dominated by establishment voices of the Left, it was expected that those same voices would also be dominant on the internet and on social media. But that’s not what happened.

The rise of voices on the Right on social media demonstrated that their reports and commentaries were far more reliable – and popular – than what was being heard from the voices of the Left. This presented the Left with a challenge to their narratives that was previously absent.

However, what was initially not relevant to many who participated on social media platforms is the fact that the major platforms are owned and managed by those with a leftist agenda – the ‘social media giants’ – people who apparently don’t seem to mind manipulating the truth to their advantage. So now it has become relevant. Continue reading »

With Maxime Bernier

Following a dramatic turn of events, Just Right’s regular contributor Salim Mansur has joined the team of Maxime Bernier’s newly-formed PEOPLE’S PARTY of CANADA (PPC) and will be that party’s candidate for London-North-Centre as Canadians head towards the October 21 federal election. Both Salim and Maxime join us today to tell a story that you will likely not hear in the mainstream media.

Having already spent ten months campaigning to be nominated as the Conservative Party (CPC) candidate for the riding, Salim’s Conservative candidacy was rejected on the grounds that his views would be considered ‘Islamophobic,’ one of many critical issues that the Conservative Party refuses to discuss. Given that Salim’s views on Islamism have long been known far and wide, it is disgraceful that the CPC allowed him to campaign on that party’s behalf for so long before rejecting his candidacy. And of course, the irony that Salim is a Muslim himself cannot be escaped.

Fortunately, Salim’s voice will not be silenced, thanks to Maxime Bernier’s principled support of freedom of speech.

What the experiences of both Salim and Maxime illustrate is that the Conservative Party of Andrew Scheer is no different that Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. A political victory for either of those parties represents a clear loss for Canada and the Canadian people. Continue reading »

Among the new candidates is distinguished Professor Emeritus, and Just Right Media contributor, Salim Mansur of Western University who was unceremoniously “disallowed” to run for the Conservative Party of Canada.

Former tenured Professor of Psychology at Acadia University, Dr. Rick Mehta uses his personal experience of being fired, ostensibly for his political views, to make the case that Canada’s labour laws offer no protection to academics in matters of academic freedom.

Dr. Mehta was presenting at the Annual General Meeting of the Society For Academic Freedom and Scholarship (SAFS) on May 4th at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario.

Safe Spaces vs. Sacred Spaces – Rachel Fulton Brown

“Our students are going mad. We’ve brought them into a place where we systematically expose them to the terrors of existence,” so says Professor Rachel Fulton Brown of the University of Chicago in this public presentation which took place in London, Ontario on May 3rd, 2019.

Professor Fulton Brown makes the claim that many students do not fully comprehend that the purpose of a University is not to provide a ‘safe space’ for them to hide away from any idea which might make them feel offended but to provide a ‘sacred’ place for them to ponder the more substantive questions in life – a place to answer not just the questions of What and How but the more important question of Why.

This is the first Chris and John Furedy Lecture sponsored by the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship. Just Right was there to exclusively record the event.

digital charter

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement that he would introduce a ‘Digital Charter’ to protect Canadians from on line ‘disinformation’ was a chilling indictment of his government’s ideology and political objectives.

Unable to control the public narrative in his favor as he heads into a federal election, Trudeau has sought to undermine the very foundation of liberal democracy by threatening to impose “meaningful financial consequences” on social media platforms that do not censor, ‘deplatform,’ or otherwise “counter disinformation” on their sites.

To call this unconscionable would be an understatement. But given the identity politics that has defined Trudeau’s government as one obsessed with categorizing the nation’s citizens on the basis of race, color, sex, language, heritage, gender, and religion, his agenda deserves to be called that and more. After all, maintaining falsehoods requires censorship; truth requires an environment of freedom of speech. Continue reading »

With the introduction of Canada’s “Digital Charter” it is as if Justin Trudeau has taken a page out of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four— committing yet another assault on our freedoms.

Placing partisan unionists on the panel to select which Liberal-friendly media outlet should receive his bribe money to keep conservative voices from being expressed is taking a page from Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals.

In all his actions Justin Trudeau is making himself out to be a tyrant in the style of the Chinese communists which he so admires.

Salim Mansur, Professor Emeritus at Western University makes a plea to stop this full-frontal onslaught of our freedoms before it is too late and we lose that one freedom which makes all our other freedoms possible: our freedom of speech.
