Donald Trump won the election. What now?

Donald Trump won the election. What now?

Donald Trump won the presidency on Nov. 9. Pro-lifers are watching to see if he fulfills his promise to appoint anti-Roe v. Wade judges. Against the odds and perhaps even the expectations of the Trump campaign (if friendly media reports are to be believed), real estate tycoon ... (Continue reading)

Ontario redefining family

Ontario redefining family

Gwen Landolt opposes Wynne government's redefining family relationships. Kathleen Wynne’s Liberal government introduced Bill 28, the “All Families Are Equal Act,” which, if passed, will legally redefine “mother” and “father” as “parent” to accommodate homosexual couples who adopt or conceive children through artificial means. REAL Women vice president Gwen Landolt criticized the Ontario government for “ramming through a revolutionary bill to completely restructure ‘family’ relationships ... (Continue reading)

Breeding confusion

You probably haven’t heard of Bill 28, “An Act to Amend the Children’s Law Reform Act,” also known as the “All Families are Equal Act.” The Ontario government is ramming through this Orwellian bill that redefines family relationships. It was introduced on Sept. 29 and passed second reading and sent to the Standing Committee on Social Policy within a week for a mere two days of consultations. There was little coverage in the media. Real Women said Bill 28 “turns on ... (Continue reading)

Federal trans rights bill passes second reading

On Oct. 19, the Liberal government’s Bill C-16, which will amend the Canadian Human Rights Act, making it illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender identity and expression, passed second reading in a 248-40 vote. C-16 also amends the Criminal Code’s hate crime laws to include gender identity and gender expression so that crimes thought to be motivated by prejudice against individuals who self-identify as transgender and transsexual can face additional punishment. Among the 38 Conservatives joining the Liberals, NDP, and ... (Continue reading)

Canadians oppose gambling expansion

According to a new poll, most Canadians do not want gambling to be expanded.

According to the poll, many ... (Continue reading)

The importance of abstinence

If we would ask “Who is the most important person in your life?” what would your response be? In today’s culture many would answer without hesitation, “myself.” In that scenario what would that person’s greatest desire be? What they want to do and have will be uppermost in their mind. A worship disorder has been created which satisfies the self. If the idol we serve is self it enslaves, dehumanizes, and destroys us. When this condition exists with a dating couple ...

The natural world doesn’t care about you

The natural world doesn’t care about you

I was born and raised a city kid; you have to go back to Scotland and Queen Victoria to find someone in my family who lived and worked in the country. Pavement and asphalt are my natural habitat, so it was with some unease that I bought my first pair of hiking shoes this year, in preparation for a trip to Ireland that involved climbing to the peak of ...

No conscience rights for euthanasia

No conscience rights for euthanasia

National Affairs Rory Leishman The vise of oppression is closing ever so tightly on pro-life physicians in Canada that they are liable soon to be drummed out of the profession for steadfastly refusing to collaborate in the deliberate killing of patients. That seems to be just fine with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal colleagues. In the government’s recently enacted euthanasia legislation, Bill C-14, they included no ...

Gay-Straight Alliances: the clash of religions

Gay-Straight Alliances: the clash of religions

Law Matters John Carpay Alberta’s education minister has launched a formal inquiry into two Edmonton-area Baptist schools, ostensibly to ensure a “welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) students.” This inquiry has its origins in Bill 10, passed in a matter of hours, without public consultation. This new law requires every school to set up and host a Gay-Straight Alliance ... (Continue reading)

Progressive solecisms (Part II)

There is a certain intellectual consistency, at least, between the expedient fluidity of liberals’ positions on women, gays, and Islam, and their affectation that gender is a matter of private whim. For progressives, after all, neither words nor states of being are ever objectively fixed. Thus marriage is not a union between a man and a woman as determined by immemorial custom or law, but a gauzy and malleable concept to be defined and re-defined in accordance with the evolving ...

Feds hold national accessibility law consultations

Carla Qualtrough, who serves as the Minister for Sport and Persons with Disabilities, is holding consultations as she prepares to draft Canada’s first national accessibility legislation. The creation of such a law is referenced in her 2015 mandate letter from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau outlining Qualtrough’s ministerial responsibilities. In September, Qualtrough was interviewed by Jonathan Charlton of the Saskatoon StarPhoenix. Asked about the purpose of the legislation, the minister explained that it would require “businesses, service providers, program deliverers within federal ... (Continue reading)

BC plans to skirt abortion pill rules

When Health Canada okayed the abortion drug Mifegymiso in 2015 for distribution this year, it imposed conditions, including that physicians only dispense the drug (and not a pharmacist), that they could only prescribe the drug after taking an online course, and that the aborting patient return for a follow-up. The conditions were requested by the manufacturer, Linepharma International Limited, due to safety concerns. These are standard conditions in most countries where the abortion pill is available, although France requires a ... (Continue reading)
