Who to believe?

Is it enough to be a professor of history at the University of Montreal who takes up the cause of Putin, of whom he is an apparently complete fan, for us to believe him?

Researchers from McGill and Concordia have published research on the purported effects of the Secularism Act on law and education students. How then can we trust such a study which aims to be scientific, but which seems to be based on a political bias?

Indeed, these professors who have serious reservations about this Quebec law are instead trying to have their thesis validated by students who are themselves opposed to the law. Their methodology appears more than questionable.

A teacher, David Santarossa, reacted in a remarkable text published on Saturday in The Press to denounce this kind of study with shaky credibility. But that hasn’t stopped other media whose The newspaper, The duty and Radio-Canada to relay this dubious scientific investigation.


Like what the prestige of the universities would remain a criterion of reference and of seriousness with the media which are then victims. It also proves that in the academic world not everyone shares the same ethics.

What more can we say about the book that appears at Éditions du Boréal signed by three colleagues on the carnage of COVID-19 in our CHSLDs? This punch book destabilizes political and professional leaders.

Who is telling the truth about this tragedy which killed nearly ten thousand seniors? Everyone in authority defends themselves. Even the minister responsible for seniors Marguerite Blais provides answers that seem contradictory about what she knew.

manipulated facts

Who to believe these days without paying the price, that is to say an incessant search for truth through the facts so systematically manipulated that a cat risks losing her kittens?

Whatever the level of education, the culture in the sense of the accumulation of knowledge and the mastery of the written and spoken language, managing to decode the information becomes a feat.

Hence no doubt the intellectual weariness that we see everywhere, the systematic search for sensations and the victory of distraction in our lives.
