Royal Visit 2016-Junior Team Tours the West Coast

As published in the Victoria Standard: October 11, 2016.

Trump Infuriates U.S. Israeli Lobby

As published in the Victoria Standard: August 6, 2016.

In spite of his divisive rhetoric on U.S. domestic issues; Donald Trump’s public statements on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are surprisingly sensible.
