Pro-life leadership contenders need our support

Pro-life leadership contenders need our support

We have been stressing the need for every pro-lifer to take out a membership in the Conservative Party of Canada in order to vote for the pro-life and pro-family candidates running for its leadership. As we went to press, at least three Campaign Life Coalition-endorsed candidates were accepted by the party as approved candidates – Derek Sloan, Leslyn Lewis, and Jim Karahalios. A fourth, Richard Décarie, was awaiting approval ... (Continue reading)

Décarie barred from Conservative leadership race

Décarie barred from Conservative leadership race

Richard Décarie   The Conservative Party of Canada's Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC) has informed pro-life and pro-family candidate Richard Décarie he is not allowed to contest the party's leadership. In February, Décarie told CTV's Evan Solomon that he did not refer to people as LGBQT, which he labeled a liberal term, saying he looks at every person as an individual, not as a member of an invented term. He was criticized ... (Continue reading)

CPC leadership race begins

CPC leadership race begins

After Andrew Scheer announced he was resigning as Conservative Party of Canada leader, the party scrambled to set up a leadership race, cancelling the leadership review and postponing the policy convention scheduled for May in Toronto. The leadership convention will be held June 27 in Toronto – the same day as the local gay pride parade – and the policy convention has been rescheduled for November and moved to Quebec City. ...

Pro-lifers and the Conservative Party

Pro-lifers and the Conservative Party

Unlike some media that looked back at the 2010s to comment on the decade’s meaning, we did not do any retrospective articles or commentary when the calendar flipped on January first to begin the 2020s. But with a federal Conservative Party leadership race underway, we look back at recent political history and the impact of pro-life and pro-family Canadians in the various leadership races and think that the 2010s ...

The Conservatives and The Interim

We often hear from readers that this paper seems too supportive of the Conservative Party. Campaign Life Coalition hears from their supporters that they are in the bag for the Tories. We appreciate why it seems this way, but it is not true. We are not partisan. We are pro-life. Unfortunately, in Canadian politics today the only major party that allows pro-life and pro-family Canadians to get involved in policy debates, local nominations, and leadership campaigns is the federal Conservative ...

Richard Décarie, first pro-lifer in 2020 Conservative leadership race

Québec strategist who helped Harper unite the right in 2003, under attack for comments on LGBTQ Richard Décarie has been pilloried for his socially conservative stances.

Did the Conservatives lose because of Scheer’s position on moral issues?

Did the Conservatives lose because of Scheer’s position on moral issues?

Andrew Scheer MP Immediately following the Oct. 21 election, there was criticism of Andrew Scheer’s leadership from the usual suspects – the Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal media, opposition parties, and elite in the parasitic industries of government relations, public relations, and political strategy. The criticism was as predictable in its specifics as it was in its sources: the Conservative Party needed a leader who would worship at the altar of Diversity ... (Continue reading)

Social conservatism and the federal election

Laying Down the Lawton Andrew Lawton It’s hard to recall an election in which social issues were brought to the surface as often as they were in this year’s federal election. Of course, this didn’t come from social conservatives, but rather from scads of progressive politicians trying to embarrass and humiliate Conservative candidates for holding the apparently unconscionable belief that, erm, life should be protected. Monsters! I lost ... (Continue reading)

Pro-life gains despite ‘disappointing’ Trudeau re-election Analysis

Pro-life gains despite ‘disappointing’ Trudeau re-election Analysis

The Liberals will return as government, albeit with a reduced large minority of 157 seats, down from 184 in 2015. The Conservatives gained roughly a half million votes and won the popular vote 34.4 per cent to 33.1 for the Liberals, yet won just 121 seats, up from 99 four years ago. The Bloc more than tripled their seat total, winning 32 of Quebec’s 78 seats, up from 10 ... (Continue reading)

Andrew Scheer must go

Andrew Scheer must go

Andrew Scheer Many in the pro-life, pro-family community are disappointed, but not surprised with the results of the Oct. 21 federal election. While there were well over 140 pro-life candidates, most were Christian Heritage Party and People’s Party of Canada candidates with little chance of winning. But even if every pro-life candidate won, there would not be a pro-life majority in Parliament, where 170 seats are required for a ... (Continue reading)

Election notebook

Green Party candidate repudiates pro-life position October 1 Mark Vercouteren, Green Party candidate in Chatham-Kent-Leamington, stated he supported abortion after it was reported he had previously indicated he was pro-life in Campaign Life Coalition questionnaires from previous elections, including the 2018 provincial election. He said he “doesn’t remember” signing the questionnaire.

Scheer says he will ‘ensure’ abortion issue is not reopened

Scheer says he will ‘ensure’  abortion issue is not reopened

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer says he will 'oppose' any effort to reopen the abortion issue by Tory backbenchers. In late August, Ralph Goodale, the Liberal Minister for Public Safety, tweeted video from 2004 in which Scheer spoke against homosexual “marriage” in the House of Commons. Goodale said, “the Conservative Party leader should now end ... (Continue reading)

Don’t be these people this election

Don’t be these people this election

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke I had a hard time deciding what to write this column on because I’m not sure who bothers me more this election: “Pro-lifers” planning to vote Liberal/NDP/Green or pro-lifers insisting it’s “Conservative or bust.” I decided to write about both, in a “fun” exercise of considering which mindset is more infuriating. Let us look at Exhibit A. The Liberal, New Democrat, and Green parties ... (Continue reading)
