On today’s show I interview Ken Wiebe regarding his suing of the Status of Women Canada. Ken is from Fathers Canada, a coalition dedicated to working on behalf of fathers and children, advancing fathers’ rights and shared parenting while exposing the corruption and sexism rampant in the family law system. He was on the show on Episode 4 to discuss Father’s Canada.
Today we discuss something quite different. In 2008 Ken sued the Status of women Canada and the authors (Pierrette Bouchard, Isabelle Boily and Marie-Claude Proulx) of a report entitled “School success by gender: A catalyst for the masuclinist discourse” which sought to expose many, many men’s rights organizations for supposedly engaging in hate speech towards women. He sued them for defamation in listing his organization as one guilty of hate mongering and possibly inciting violence against women.
Plus, news and commentary in the fields of gender and equalism from our regular pundit Mark Overy, aka Argus Eyes, who runs the blog True-Equality.
Ken Wiebe is a father, a self employed business man and an independent contractor who has been a frequent independent contract consultant for government for approximately 19 years, in computer matters. He is the spokesman for B.C. Fathers, an unregistered support group for fathers and mothers in regard to access, custody and matrimonial disputes. He also assists in coordinating the coalition Fathers Canada. More info on Ken Wiebe and Fathers Canada can be found at www.fathers.ca
