Canada In the article “Confessions of a social constructionist” (Quillette, Sept. 17), Canadian historian Christopher Dummitt admits that he made up certain parts of his doctoral thesis (sometime after 2002), and published a book and articles on his “findings” that “identity was a social construction. And that identity was all about power.” That is, gender is based solely in culture. He says that no one in the university questioned his thesis or suggested that he read countervailing evidence. He ... (Continue reading)

Canada The Superior Court of Quebec ruled that federal legislation that restricts euthanasia to those for whom a patient’s natural death was “reasonably foreseeable” was unconstitutional. Justice Christine Baudouin agreed with arguments that the restriction caused needless suffering for those who had pain but was not going to die imminently. Denying such patients assisted dying, Baudouin wrote, is “forcing them to endure harsh physical and psychological suffering” and therefore “the court has no hesitation in concluding that the requirement ...

Canada The Canadian magazine Toronto Lifecelebrates the lives of Torontonians and showcases all the good things that Toronto has to offer—from the cultural mosaic that makes up the city to music, art, cuisine and so much more. So a certain July 29 article didn’t seem to fit the magazine’s thrust: “I threw my grandmother an assisted suicide party.” On the other hand, it was treated as a joyous event with all the makings of a wedding, or… bar mitzvah ...

Canada If there is one reason why Justin Trudeau and his Liberal cohorts should be turfed from government, it is abortion. Not only does one have to be pro-abortion to run as a Liberal candidate, but abortion seems to ooze from the very pores of this Liberal government. Recently, Mike Pence, Vice President of the United States, was in Ottawa meeting with Prime Minister Trudeau. Trudeau took the opportunity to scold America for its pro-life stance – including informing ... (Continue reading)

Canada On May 9, the Canadian Pediatric Society (CPS) issued a paper calling for “Universal access to no-cost contraception for youth in Canada.” Claiming “access to contraception” is a “basic human right,” the CPS pointed to estimates that there are nearly 60,000 unintended pregnancies among women 25 and under in Canada and claimed that preventing those pregnancies would save money even after accounting for the $157 million price-tag of universal contraception for kids. CPS said that there would be ... (Continue reading)

Canada Conservative MP David Anderson (Cypress Hills-Grassland) introduced a bill that would make it a crime to intimidate health care workers to force them to directly or indirectly take part in euthanasia. The Protection of Freedom of Conscience Act, or Bill C-418, is expected to be debated in Parliament May 29, and Campaign Life Coalition is asking Canadians to get behind the private member’s bill that was tabled by Anderson last fall. If passed, C-418 would also make it ... (Continue reading)

Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is at it again. He is giving $30 million Canadian tax dollars over the next five years to developing countries to push his homosexual and gender identity agenda. Global Affairs Canada, through Minister of International Development Marie-Claude Bibeau, said Canada “is committed to advocating for the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirited (LGBTQ2) and intersex persons and partnering with LGBTQ2 communities to address the barriers to equality that continue to limit ...

Canada By a 1996 agreement, St. Martha’s Catholic Hospital in Antigonish, N.S., was taken over by the Eastern Regional Health Board, but continued to be staffed by the Sisters of St. Martha. The sisters, the board, and the N.S. Health Department signed an agreement to ensure the hospital’s Catholic identity and values would be preserved. The agreement expressly forbids “assisting” suicide and abortion at St. Martha’s. The agreement also forbids any assessment of a patient ... (Continue reading)

Canada The BBC World News reported that, “Canada has become a hot destination for parents-to-be looking for ‘altruistic surrogates’ – women who give birth to babies they are not genetically related to.” Canadian legislation makes it easy for “intended” parents to obtain legal parenthood of a surrogate baby. Canadian fertility consulting agencies match up couples (usually infertile couples, same-sex male couples and singles) wanting a child, with a woman who will carry a fertilized egg (not her own) to ...

Canada Canadian International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau told a family planning conference in Kigali, Rwanda, that developing countries, especially in Africa, must do more to offer “family planning services” including contraception and abortion, in order to combat poverty. The Trudeau government maintains that breaking down “barriers” are necessary for “women and girls to develop their full potential.” She complained that while some countries’ delegates will talk about contraception and abortion at conferences they do not follow-up ...

Canada Canada’s Supreme Court authorised the practice of euthanasia, or medical-assistance-in-dying, in 2016 with the following exceptions forbidden by law: euthanasia for “mature minors,” i.e. those under the age of 18; psychiatric patients; and those whose illness falls beyond the ability of capacity to make an informed decision (for example, those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease). The Trudeau government tasked the Council of Canadian Academies to look into these three contentious exceptions and report to Parliament by the end of ... (Continue reading)

Canada Doug Ford, Ontario’s new Progressive Conservative Premier has announced that the province’s colleges and universities have until January 2019 to have in place a free-speech policy or face funding cuts. “Colleges and universities should be places where students exchange different ideas and opinions in open and respectful debate,” he stated. The Canadian Federation of Students slammed the move as “an unprecedented overstep” by the government into campus activities, ignoring the fact that many students have been shut out ...

Canada Convicted child-killer Robert Latimer is seeking clemency for the 1993 murder of his daughter, Tracy. Latimer has asked Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould for a pardon of his second-degree conviction. Tracy was living with cerebral palsy when he poisoned her by attaching a hose from the exhaust of his truck to the cab, where she died in the family garage from carbon monoxide poisoning. Latimer argues that now that euthanasia is legal, any record of his crime should be ... (Continue reading)
