Editor’s Note: On March 9, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau delivered a speech at a McGill Institute for the Study of Canada event in Toronto, titled, “Canadian Liberty and the Politics of Fear.” The media focused on his comparison of the Conservative government’s attitude toward Muslims with Canadian immigration policy in the 1930s and ‘40s that turned back Jewish refugees from Europe.

SCC assisted suicide decision is irresponsible and dangerous

SCC assisted suicide decision  is irresponsible and dangerous

Alex Schadenberg The Supreme Court of Canada has made an activist decision by giving physicians the right in law to cause the death of people by euthanasia and assisted suicide. The Court has made an irresponsible decision, what is more, by using imprecise and subjective language, leaving many issues to be determined by Parliament; without objective criteria the decision sets a dangerous precedent that, if unchecked, will lead to ...

Consider the evidence: Gloria Taylor, the now deceased person who initiated the Carter case, was ... (Continue reading)

Data from the General Social Survey, which involves interviews with 57,000 American adults between 1972 and 2002, showed that having an additional sibling (up to a maximum of seven) gave additional protection from future divorce, ...

Death wish

“Fear not,” Dingwall said, when I complained about the Supreme Court’s invalidation of the law against physician-assisted suicide. “What do you mean ‘fear not’?” I replied. “The learned judges are turning compliant doctors into legally approved merchants of death.” “They turned into that when the unlearned politicians legalized limited abortion and the Supreme Court removed the limits.” “In both cases,” I conceded, “the Court ruled that the existing laws violated the right to life, liberty and security of the person. However, by doubling ... (Continue reading)

Conscience rights under assault in Ontario, Saskatchewan

The Supreme Court’s doctor-assisted suicide decision gives greater urgency to the concerns of physicians who are fighting to maintain conscience rights in Ontario and Saskatchewan. Feb. 20 was the deadline for feedback to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario on a draft policy -- “Professional Obligations and Human Rights” -- proposing to force Ontario physicians to refer for and potentially even carry out abortions, prescriptions for contraceptives, and assisted suicide. The deadline for feedback to the College of Physicians ... (Continue reading)

Grade-by-grade breakdown of Wynne’s graphic new sex-ed program

While the Ontario Liberal government under lesbian Premier Kathleen Wynne would have parents believe its newly unveiled sex-ed program is an unbiased presentation of fact, a detailed look at what kids in grades 1-8 are expected to learn reveals something entirely different. The 2015 Health and Physical Education program states in its earliest pages that sexual health “is more than simply teaching young people about the anatomy and physiology of ... (Continue reading)

The pornification of Hollywood

The pornification of Hollywood

When Fifty Shades of Grey made the transition from best-selling novel to box office smash movie – on Valentine’s Day, no less – we were given another opportunity to watch the border between the mainstream movie industry and its pornographic cousin evaporate into further irrelevance. For anyone living in blissful isolation for the last couple of years, Fifty Shades began life as the first part of a trilogy written by ... (Continue reading)

Planned Parenthood to teach ‘safe sexting’

Planned Parenthood Ottawa is holding workshops to instruct teens in safe sexting. “If you tell youth not to do it, simply that it’s illegal, they hear, ‘don’t get caught,’ and it doesn’t help them understand the actual risks involved in sexting,” said Lauren Dobson-Hughes, president of PP Ottawa, to Maclean’s. “We would rather youth talk about consent in an age-appropriate way, throughout their lives, so they understand that sharing a picture without someone’s consent isn’t right.” Sexting is the sending of sexually ...

L-G-B-T, X-Y-Zee, now I know my ABCs

Sanders, Wynne and sex ed. When Mark Steyn alluded to Kathleen Wynne’s renewed attempt to smuggle her radical “sex education” curriculum into the elementary school classroom (I’d call it a hidden agenda, but only conservatives have hidden agendas), Indigo CEO Heather Reisman nearly fell off her hostess chair. Interrupting her interview with Steyn on his new book, Canada’s self-proclaimed Reader-in-Chief protested, “I’ve never heard of that.” ... (Continue reading)
