Ontario government set to ban pro-life speech

Yasir Naqvi Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi announced on May 29 that the Liberal government plans to table a bill in the fall in order to legislate “bubble zones” that would ban pro-life demonstrations and sidewalk counseling near any abortion facility. Most abortion facilities have a legal injunction preventing pro-life activity within 30 feet of their facilities, but the so-called temporary injunction, which expired in December 2016, affects only ...

Brad Wall to invoke notwithstanding clause to restore democracy

Brad Wall to invoke notwithstanding clause to restore democracy

Thanks to judicial distortion of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms over the past 30 years, freedom of religion in Canada has come under such severe restriction that an otherwise law-abiding, and conscientious citizen could now lose his livelihood or even end up in jail simply for steadfastly upholding the traditional principles of Judeo-Christian morality. Faithful bakers, florists, printers and Christian organizations like the Knights of Columbus are well ... (Continue reading)

Permanent adolescence

Permanent adolescence

Sasse tells the amusing story of when he was president of Midland University he came across a large half-decorated 20-foot Christmas tree on campus. None of the students tasked with decorating could be bothered to look for a ladder to complete the job. He said “this day’s failures wasn’t at all about lacking brains” but rather the absence of will and ownership and “experience or interest in seeing tasks ... (Continue reading)

Pro-lifers, socons impact CPC leadership race

Andrew Scheer wins the Conservative Party Leadership. When 141,000 ballots were counted on May 27 at the Toronto Congress Center and the results reported for the 14 candidates seeking the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada, it was obvious the push by Canadian pro-life and pro-family groups to get their supporters to purchase a membership to the party to back the social conservative ...

Dismaying Dutch disregard for life

Dismaying Dutch disregard for life

Rory Leishman National Affairs How could the Netherlands, a country which heroically resisted the Nazi euthanasia program during the Second World War, now embrace one of the most extensive regimes of legalized euthanasia in the Western world? Most people in the Netherlands would resent such a question: They insist that there is no moral equivalence between the current Dutch model of voluntary euthanasia and the evil Nazi program, ...

The cultured life

The cultured life

Culture is one of those words – like marriage, society, science, family and gender - that we use a lot these days. And like those words, if you stopped the argument where it’s being used, it’s unlikely that everyone using it would share the same definition. I’m sure this has been the case for at least a generation now, but I’ve slowly come to the realization that, the longer this situation persists, the less likely it is that, in some ...

Trost, Lemieux for CPC leader

Trost, Lemieux for CPC leader

Since last fall, The Interim has encouraged its readers to sign up for the Conservative Party leadership because there were two candidates running that deserved the support of Canadian pro-lifers: MP Brad Trost and former MP Pierre Lemieux. As this paper has noted several times, there have been pro-life candidates for leadership before, but never has a candidate for the Conservatives -- or the legacy parties from ... (Continue reading)

‘Phobias’ kill our freedom of expression

‘Phobias’ kill our freedom  of expression

Law Matters John Carpay Like homophobia, Islamophobia is a dangerous word. Both words are dangerous because they are ambiguous. Uncertainty about the meaning of words makes it impossible to have honest discussion and debate. Without honest debate, democracy and society function poorly. Undermining the citizen’s ability to communicate with others results in misunderstanding and fear. Dictionaries define “phobia” as “an extreme or irrational fear” and as a mild ...

Justin Trudeau announces $650 million for global abortion, contraception

Justin Trudeau announces $650 million for global abortion, contraception

The Liberal government used March 8, International Women’s Day, to announce it would use $650 million in Canadian taxpayer money to fund so-called sexual and reproductive health services in the developing world, including abortion and abortion lobbying. In January, President Donald Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy that prohibits U.S. foreign aid money from going to any organization that carries out or supports abortion in the developing world. Groups like ... (Continue reading)

Weaponized aid

Weaponized aid

Pierre Trudeau Last month, Prime Minster Justin Trudeau announced that $650 million of Canada’s foreign aid budget would be directed to support “sexual and reproductive health programs.” The specific amount of Trudeau’s pledge will go some way to fill the gap created by President Trump’s recent reinstitution of the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits U.S. aid from funding abortion overseas. Of course, this unsubtle slight of America’s laudable policy ... (Continue reading)
