Trudeau praises abortion as most important development in Canadian history

Trudeau praises abortion as most important development in Canadian history

Editor’s Note: On March 9, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau delivered a speech at a McGill Institute for the Study of Canada event in Toronto, titled, “Canadian Liberty and the Politics of Fear.” The media focused on his comparison of the Conservative government’s attitude toward Muslims with Canadian immigration policy in the 1930s and ‘40s that turned back Jewish refugees from Europe. What the media ignored was Trudeau’s praise of ... (Continue reading)

The pornification of Hollywood

The pornification of Hollywood

When Fifty Shades of Grey made the transition from best-selling novel to box office smash movie – on Valentine’s Day, no less – we were given another opportunity to watch the border between the mainstream movie industry and its pornographic cousin evaporate into further irrelevance. For anyone living in blissful isolation for the last couple of years, Fifty Shades began life as the first part of a trilogy written by ... (Continue reading)

L-G-B-T, X-Y-Zee, now I know my ABCs

Sanders, Wynne and sex ed. When Mark Steyn alluded to Kathleen Wynne’s renewed attempt to smuggle her radical “sex education” curriculum into the elementary school classroom (I’d call it a hidden agenda, but only conservatives have hidden agendas), Indigo CEO Heather Reisman nearly fell off her hostess chair. Interrupting her interview with Steyn on his new book, Canada’s self-proclaimed Reader-in-Chief protested, “I’ve never heard of that.” ... (Continue reading)

A decision notwithstanding

A decision notwithstanding

The Supreme Court of Canada’s recent declaration that our country’s prohibitions against euthanasia and assisted suicide “unjustifiably infringe” on the rights articulated in Section 7 of the Charter – those rights, ironically, to “life, liberty and security of the person”– is a flagrant affront to the will of the people. As recently as 2010, our elected officials rendered a clear and firm rejection of death’s legalization, and the High ... (Continue reading)

What about living with dignity?  A plea to the Supreme Court justices

Taylor Hyatt Dear Supreme Court Justices: On Feb. 6, you unanimously ruled that existing prohibitions against assisted suicide be struck down. In their place, three recommendations were made for Parliament to propose new legislation: (1) the person requesting “assisted death” must be a competent adult who consents to ending their life, (2) they must have a “grievous and irremediable” health condition, including an illness or disability, and (3) said condition ...

Supreme Court makes assisted suicide a constitutional right

Supreme Court makes assisted suicide  a constitutional right

On Feb. 6, the Supreme Court of Canada threw out sections of the Criminal Code prohibiting euthanasia and assisted-suicide, saying they unjustifiably infringe the Charter rights of individuals who might consider killing themselves and would want assistance at the chosen moment of death. Canada joins the ranks of Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxemburg, and the American states of Oregon and Washington, in allowing assisted suicide. In the ... (Continue reading)

Diverse crowd opposes Wynne’s sex ed

Diverse crowd opposes Wynne’s sex ed

Numerous times speakers were interrupted with chants of “we say no” and “save our children.” Patrick Brown and Monte McNaughton, two Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership hopefuls, spoke. They both vowed to oppose the curriculum, urged those in attendance to let the government know they will not accept the curriculum, and insisted it was not yet a done deal. “This fight is not over,” McNaughton said. Speakers included parents and pastors concerned ... (Continue reading)

Our annual obituary

Our annual obituary

The rhythms of the year are unsurprising and predicable; as inevitable as winter snow and spring showers is a declaration of the death of the pro-life movement. This year’s annual pronouncement ran in the National Post shortly following the floor-crossing of several MLAs from the Wild Rose Party to the Progressive Conservatives in Alberta.  The party’s then-leader, Danielle Smith, explained that this move was motivated, in part, by her sense ...

Charlie Hebdo and Pope Francis

Charlie Hebdo and Pope Francis

The slaughter of the cartoonists and staff of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo by Islamic terrorists last month forced us to define precisely what we mean by “freedom of speech.” This was long overdue, and judging by some of the attempts made in the weeks after the murders, it would seem we have a long way to go. As everyone must be aware by now, Charlie Hebdo specialized in ... (Continue reading)

Ten reasons to reject Wynne’s sex education curriculum

Ten reasons to reject Wynne’s sex education curriculum

As the Ontario government gets ready to bring back the radical sex education curriculum for Ontario’s children, here are ten reasons why parents should reject it in spite of the political correctness propaganda that supports it. Children don’t need to know all the mechanics of sex before they are emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually old enough to understand what they are being taught. Scrap the curriculum and spend the money ... (Continue reading)
