Bits & Pieces

Canada Statistics released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information reported that there were at least 81,897 surgical abortions in Canada in 2014, the latest year for which there are numbers.

However, the numbers do not include abortions committed at free-standing abortion facilities and some British Columbia hospitals do not report the abortions they carry out. There are no statistics for the ... (Continue reading)

Independent candidate runs against sex-ed in Scarborough-Rouge River

Queenie Yu says that "complaining is useless" so she's running as an independent candidate in an Ontario by-election in order to put her principles into action. The principle in question is Kathleen Wynne's radical sex-ed curriculum which Yu says "will do harm to children." Yu is running on one issue: to fully repeal the sex-ed curriculum that the Liberal government introduced in 2015. The independent candidate told The Interim she wants to inform voters in Scarborough-Rouge River through her website, lawn ... (Continue reading)

Wrong to blame Christianity for Orlando attack

Law Matters John Carpay If you think smoking is really, really bad, does that mean you hate smokers? Or if you believe that alcoholism is a serious health problem in Canada today, would your belief lead you to kill alcoholics, or to approve of someone else killing alcoholics? Of course not. You can disagree with a particular activity, yet not wish death upon those who engage in it. This logic applies ... (Continue reading)

Alberta court rules on euthanasia law before it passes

National Affairs Rory Leishman Time and again over the past 30 years, the Supreme Court of Canada has proceeded under cover of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to violate its own precedents, amend the Constitution, and overturn long-standing laws duly enacted by elected representatives of the people within the jurisdiction of Parliament and the provincial legislatures.

Supreme Court’s bestiality madness

Our first reaction to the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision striking down part of the Criminal Code’s prohibition on bestiality was incredulousness: the newspapers and broadcasters were playing a joke on readers and viewers. Sadly, they were not. On June 9, all but one of the wise jurists on the Supreme Court decided that a ban on bestiality that did not involve actual penetration was unconstitutional. We shudder to think of the ermine-robed justices sitting in the lounge behind their ... (Continue reading)

Half of private schools  are religious: study

In June, the Fraser Institute’s Barbara Mitchell Centre for Improvement in Education released a study – the first of its kind in Canada – on the country’s current independent (private) schools, finding that that they are not the elitist institutions of popular imagination.

The study found that there are 1,935 independent schools here in Canada ... (Continue reading)

Where is the evangelical church?

Since 1969, we, in Canada, have brutally put to death almost 4 million pre-born children. Some of these children were poisoned and burned to death with a concentrated salt solution (Saline abortion). Others were suctioned limb by limb from the womb (Suction abortion). Still others were cut up into pieces with a sharp curette (D & C and D & E abortions). Clearly, the plight of the pre-born is an emergency that calls for extraordinary action by the church of ... (Continue reading)

C-14 is law. What now?

C-14 is law. What now?

After the short-lived but excitable volleys between the House of Commons and the Senate, our parliamentarians voted in both houses to enact a fairly broad license for what is euphemistically being called medical aid in dying (MAID). The ink was barely dry before some of the more radical members of the Liberal caucus and senate contingent were calling for the law to be loosened and there was a legal ... (Continue reading)
