Pro-life, pro-family delegates influence Conservative convention

Pro-life, pro-family delegates influence Conservative convention

The headlines coming out of the 2016 Conservative policy convention in Vancouver May 26-28 was that the Tories became a modern, inclusive party because it accepted same-sex “marriage.” The social conservatives were defeated, if not outright vanquished, according to some pundits. That is a gross over-simplification of a more complex story, in which pro-life and pro-family delegates saw both victories and defeats in a number of policy, constitutional, and ...

No to C-14

No to C-14

National Post columnist Robyn Urback said the fact that neither side ... (Continue reading)

Waking up from the ‘American Dream’

Waking up from the ‘American Dream’

"The children are our future” is probably among the most sententious phrases you can utter in politics, a sure tell that the person using it has no plan that will immediately have an impact on the children – yours or anyone else’s – or the future. So it’s reasonable to raise an eyebrow at a book that makes some dire claims about the dim prospects of future generations if ... (Continue reading)
