Kevin Michael Grace

I am the last Canadian you will ever know

Kevin Michael Grace was born July 2, 1955, in Toronto, to an Irish-Canadian father and a Welsh mother. He was raised in Vancouver and environs and since 2001 has lived in Victoria. A college dropout, he worked for 12 years at the University of British Columbia Library. A member of the “media” (dread word!) since 1986, he produced radio talkshows for CJOR in Vancouver, CJCA in Edmonton, KOGO in San Diego and the WIC radio network, as well as a television talkshow for CFRN in Edmonton.

Formerly a senior editor of Alberta Report and managing editor of BC Report, he produced there the columns Eclectica (a media review) and Galaxy 500 (a TV review). The founding editor of ResourceClips.com and ResourcesWire.com, he previously wrote Auguries (a gold column) for the Financial Post.

Grace has been published in the American Conservative, the American Spectator, the Chesterton Review, Chronicles, the Dorchester Review, The Gold Report, the Montreal Gazette, the National Catholic Register, National Review, the Ottawa Citizen, Taki’s Magazine, the Vancouver Sun and VDARE.com. His commentaries have been broadcast by CBC Radio.

Grace once described himself as a Roman Catholic and a conservative but confesses he no longer understands what these terms mean.

“Undoubtedly, Mr Grace has strong views, including about the role of human rights tribunals, but we are not convinced that the concerns rise to the level of bias…. We will allow Mr Grace to give evidence, recognizing the limitations of his experience and expertise.”

—Claude Pensa, Chairperson of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, December 5, 2000
