2018 Genesis Awards

Honoree & Keynote Speaker: Mark Steyn

  • Introducing him at the United States Senate in 2015, Ted Cruz called Mark Steyn "an international bestselling author, a Top Five jazz recording artist, and a leading Canadian human rights activist".  All of which happens to be true.


  • Steyn's human rights campaign to restore free speech to Canada led to the repeal by Parliament of the notorious "Section 13" hate-speech law, a battle he recounts in his book Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech And The Twilight Of The West


  • Mark wrote about Israel. “The Jewish state is a great success story. The modern Middle East is the misbegotten progeny of the British and French colonial map makers of 1922. All the nation states in that neck of the woods date back a mere 60 or 70 years – Iraq to the Thirties, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Israel to the Forties. The only difference is that Israel has made a go of it.  Would I rather there were more countries like Israel, or more like Syria? Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East (Iraq may yet prove a second), and its Arab citizens enjoy more rights than they would living under any of the kleptocrat kings and psychotic dictators who otherwise infest the region.”


  • Mark is the author of the following: 

  1. After America, which was a Top Five bestseller in the United States and a Number One bestseller in Canada
  2. America Alone: The End Of The World As We Know It, a New York Times bestseller in the United States and a Number One bestseller in Canada
  3. The [Un]documented Mark Steyn, his most recent bestseller
  4. Lights Out - Islam, free speech and the twilight of the west
