A new saint for Quebec

On June 16, 2003, the ardent separatist leader Pierre Bourgault died at the Hotel-Dieu of Montreal. All the members of the Quebec separatist family mourned the loss of this mythological figure.

Don’t trust them

The federal government's approach to homosexual unions is to assuage the concerns of the majority and placate the demands of a vocal minority by legislating same-sex "marriage" while vowing to "protect" churches' right not to perform them. In essence, they're saying to Canada, just trust us. Right. In 1967, the Liberal government of the day legalized contraception and vowed that it would not lead to abortion. Just trust us, they said. ... (Continue reading)

A marriage debate primer

What is marriage? Marriage is the sacrament of love that precedes the institution of life - the family. If the family is the microcosm of society, marriage is both secular constitution and sacred covenant. It is the habitat of the family, and it pre-exists the state.

This has led to an explosion in the use of in-vitro fertilization by couples desperate to expand their families.

The time to act on same-sex ‘marriage’ is now

Whatever else may be said about same-sex unions, if they attain the same status as heterosexual marriage, it will mean the destruction of marriage. This is not to say that this is the intent of the homosexual lobby, but there is something called the law of unintended consequences. Homosexual people fondly imagine they will end so-called discrimination against themselves. But, success in their campaign to win "marriage" ... (Continue reading)
