Justin Trudeau touts parliamentary, electoral reform

Justin Trudeau touts parliamentary, electoral reform

Liberal leader promises 'more free votes' but offers fewer free votes For his first two years as Liberal leader, Justin Trudeau offered few specific policies and Canadians were largely left guessing what he would do on most policy files. Trudeau repeatedly stated he would liberalize Canada’s marijuana laws and in 2014 he issued a diktat that under his leadership no ... (Continue reading)

A misunderstood encyclical

A misunderstood encyclical

A philosopher once pithily observed that “the map is not the territory.” The same can certainly be said of statements about the Roman Pontiff made in the mainstream media: they do not offer trustworthy maps for navigating the territory of what Pope Francis actually did or said on any occasion. One always needs a ressourcement, a return to the sources, when judging such stories. Thus, when adulation greeted the “green ... (Continue reading)

Euthanasia Prevention Coalition campaign calls on Parliament to “Give Us Time”

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) has launched the “Give Us Time” postcard campaign in response to the Supreme Court of Canada’s assisted suicide ruling. When the Carter v. Canada decision was released on February 6, the Criminal Code prohibition against assisted suicide was struck down. Previously, section 241 of the Code stated that everyone who aids another person in committing suicide, or counsels them to do so, “is guilty ... (Continue reading)

Getting out of the echo chamber

Getting out of the echo chamber

Six years after I was laid off from my job at a national daily newspaper and sent back out to the uncertainties of freelancing as a writer and photographer, I’ve found myself with a steady gig again. Of those six years I can’t say much except that it’s no way to earn a living. The new job is more interesting – editing a Huffington Post-style group blog called The ... (Continue reading)

CLC organizes the annual event in the nation’s capital, in what was originally a witness to mark the ... (Continue reading)

Civil liberties group defends free speech rights of pro-lifers

NCLN's Rebecca Richmond welcomed Ontario Civil Liberties Association paper on free speech being denied to pro-lifers. The Ontario Civil Liberties Association (OCLA) released a position paper commenting on “the evident statutory and institutional bias that exists in Ontario against the free-expression rights of pro-life campaigners.” Violations of these rights include “university-campus suppressions of student pro-life ...

CLC-endorsed Patrick Brown  wins Ontario Tory leadership

Patrick Brown at the PC leadership convention. Following the defeat of Tim Hudak in last year’s Ontario election, the provincial Progressive Conservative Party began a nearly nine-month leadership campaign.

She had been the co-frontrunner in 2009 when the Tories picked Hudak to lead ... (Continue reading)

Fathers of aborted children need to be acknowledged, too

Fathers of aborted children need  to be acknowledged, too

Pro-life advocates are all too aware of the damage abortion can do. Besides killing preborn children, their mothers often face unimaginable physical and emotional consequences. These complications may not be traced back to their abortion experience until years later. Yet Alliance for Life Ontario (AFLO) knows there is another demographic whose pain is often unacknowledged: the fathers of aborted children. AFLO executive director Jakki Jeffs told The Interim, “for ... (Continue reading)

Deconstructing the deconstructionists

Deconstructing the deconstructionists

Joe Campbell Liberalism is a smiley-faced demolition project – in a purely positive, hopey-changey sense of the word “demolition,” that is. Since the innumerable “social constructs” that litter the highway of history are impediments to human progress, the time has come to clear them out of the way. Margaret Mead taught us that patriarchy was a social construct. According to moral relativists, right and wrong are social constructs. Recently ... (Continue reading)

Whatever happened to Peggy’s baby in Mad Men?

Whatever happened to Peggy’s baby in Mad Men?

Rick McGinnis wonders whatever happened to Peggy Olson's baby. By the time you read this the last episode of Mad Men will be about to air, and since it’s unlikely that that last hour will satisfy everyone that’s followed the show for eight years, there might be some shouting. The series finale probably won’t be the Shakespearean tragedy that concluded Breaking Bad ... (Continue reading)

Fight against Wynne’s sex-ed curriculum continues

Fight against Wynne’s sex-ed curriculum continues

Even the media acknowledged the “thousands” of protesters at Queen’s Park on April 14 as a large multicultural crowd heard speakers, displayed signs, and chanted that they would never accept the planned new sex-ed curriculum being foisted upon Ontario students by Kathleen Wynne’s Liberal government. Organizers estimate that half the people at the protest were Muslims, most of them women, while there were also large contingents of Sikhs and Russian ... (Continue reading)

Brown the ‘clear choice’ in Ontario PC leadership race

Brown the ‘clear choice’ in Ontario PC leadership race

Monte McNaughton said that Patrick Brown shares his social conservative convictions, but also the best approach to party revitalization. While there was no risk of vote-splitting in the preferential ballot system, Monte McNaughton’s withdrawal leaves one social conservative in the Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership race. On April 9, with about a month ... (Continue reading)

Gairdner on liberals vs. conservatives

Gairdner, prolific author of The War on the Family, The Trouble with Canada, and several other penetrating publications, is one of the most influential conservative intellectuals in North America. In his latest book, The Great Divide: Why Liberals and Conservatives will Never, Ever Agree,  he explains how the ideological divide between left- and right-wingers in Canada, the United States, and elsewhere in the Western world has developed into an acrimonious ...

Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

  The health and physical education curriculum for Ontario needed to be updated, but the manner and content of the “updating” has been dishonest and disrespectful toward parents. The process has been a continuation of the social engineering launched by this provincial government in 2008-2010 under then Education Minister Kathleen Wynne. Unhappy with the pace of implementation of its Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy the Liberal government amended the Education ... (Continue reading)
