More articles with controversial remarks about transgender people, women, people of colour and the homeless community have surfaced from Paul Bunner, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's speechwriter who is already facing calls for his dismissal amid accusations of racist, sexist and homophobic remarks in past work.

Bunner came under fire last week for an article he wrote in 2013 calling residential schools a "bogus genocide story." More articles came to light on Friday, where he called homosexuality "socially destructive."

Another dozen articles penned by the speechwriter have now been uncovered. Most of them were written in the late 1990s and early 2000s, while he was editor of the now-defunct Alberta Report.
