  •  Boko Haram: Why terror group kidnaps schoolgirls, and what happens next – “It is a parent’s worst nightmare: Your child goes to school, never to return home. Scores of Nigerians are living that horrific reality after 230 schoolgirls were abducted, allegedly by Boko Haram, under the cover of darkness… The Islamist militants’ name translates to “Western education is a sin” in the local language. The group especially opposes the education of women.” CNN
  • Highest court likely to decide law school case: “Trinity Western University provision revives dispute over equality rights… The issue boils down to which form of discrimination is to be tolerated: discrimination against the individual gay law students, or discrimination against those holding religious beliefs consistent with TWU’s covenant.” Vancouver Sun
