CAFE Director Justin Trottier appears on John Oakley Show discussing Jian Ghomeshi and rape culture
Tuesday, Nov 4 at 9:10am CAFE Director Justin Trottier joined host John Oakley on AM640 to discuss the larger implications of the controversy swirling around Jian Ghomeshi. In particular, he offered remarks regarding the culture of privilege, in which those in positions of power – both men and women – will sometimes take advantage of the opportunity for personal gain. In addition, Trottier was asked about “rape culture” on campus and responded by denouncing all acts of violence and harassment, then pointing out that we are also concerned by a culture which stifles legitimate debate about complex issues regarding sexual behaviour, which embarks upon witch hunts before investigations can occur, and which lets off those who maliciously lie or make false accusations.
We must strike a better balance between ensuring the safety of victims or of the workplace or campus environment, and ensuring justice to the accused and others who may be swept up in the ensuing public paranoia that often makes it difficult to find the truth.

Dr. Warren Farrell event: “Boys to Men: Transforming the Boys Crisis into Our Sons’ Opportunities“
A protest decrying a U.S. author as a “rape culture defender” broke out at the University of Toronto Friday evening, delaying the guest’s scheduled talk and resulting in one arrest and release on scene for trespassing. Warren Farrell, pictured, author of best-seller The Myth of Male Power, was at the university to speak on issues facing North American boys, but couldn’t take the stage until police broke up a gathering of approximately 50 protesters, who blocked the doors outside and chanted their opposition. The U of T Students Against Sexism, who organized the rally and advertised it at Ryerson University and beyond, said “There is a backlash against equality and the women’s movement by “men’s issues” groups that blame women, manipulate men, and ignore poverty, racism, ableism, homophobia and transphobia,” in its rally notice.
City TV interviewed Dr. Farrell at a public school earlier in the day, then covered the event. Their report aired Friday, Nov 16, 11:30pm ET “…with police. cops eventually got everyone to move on. they did detain one person, though. their target was dr. Warren Farrell, author of the myth of male power. he claims boys are disadvantaged than girls with much higher rates of suicide…”
