The Crown raises questions about British monarchy

The Crown raises questions about British monarchy

If you go by an article published in the UK’s Independent last year, the anti-monarchist movement in that country isn’t very healthy. The story begins with five men handing out pamphlets in Leeds city centre on a rainy Saturday. (The canvasser who has their folding table is late, apparently.) They remain polite in the face of hostility from weekend shoppers with royalist sympathies, and one of the die-hard republicans ... (Continue reading)

Rule of law means protecting minorities, not pandering to the mob

Law Matters John Carpay On Nov. 16, members of the Aboriginal Women’s Collective (AWC) at the University of Victoria placed 1,181 small flags on campus.

A surge of these verbal and gestural flourishes has swept the most recent generations and threatens mine. Whenever they meet or depart from family, friends, acquaintances and even near strangers, the affected are liable to give forth. I’m not sure why ... (Continue reading)

Meet Sheilah Martin, the newest judicial activist

National Affairs Rory Leishman Madam Justice Sheilah Martin, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s latest pick for the Supreme Court of Canada, will probably be just as bad as – if not worse than – former Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and all the other judicial activists on the Court who have treated the 1982 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as a mandate for unelected judges to dictate public ...

Pro-life issue raised in Saskatchewan Party leadership

In August, Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall announced he would retire from politics, and the Saskatchewan Party is electing a new leader – and thus premier – on Jan. 27. In the weeks before the eligibility deadline for membership to vote, the Saskatchewan press noticed that the pro-life group Right Now had rated the candidates running for leader, igniting a controversy that dissipated as quickly as it arose.

Resolution

It is a cliche of modern life that New Year’s resolutions are made to be broken. Perhaps by the time you have read this editorial you have already returned to the bad habits or behaviour you vowed to cease in 2018. We hope, though, that there is a resolution we all make that we all keep this year: a solid commitment to increase our pro-life activism. We must follow this commitment faithfully all year long. Every pro-life group in Canada needs ... (Continue reading)

“Trudeau’s abortion litmus test”

Ottawa Won't fund students summer jobs unless employers support abortion The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau will ban any employer from receiving summer job grants for students if the employer doesn’t first sign an “attestation” that they agree with abortion and transgender “rights.” The new criteria were sent to all MPs and was made public when the Canada Summer Jobs Program opens December 19, 2017. In order to receive federal ... (Continue reading)
