Summer jobs depend on agreeing with state religion

Summer jobs depend on agreeing with state religion

Law Matters John Carpay The fascist disease of ideological coercion continues to spread in Canada’s body politic. For a charity to receive federal government funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program, the charity must now express agreement with Canada’s state religion, including support for legal abortion, transgenderism, and LGBTQ ideology. The Canada Summer Jobs program exists to create summer employment for students, and to make it financially attractive for ... (Continue reading)

An ideological litmus-test

An ideological litmus-test

At America’s founding, the moral character of slavery was not in doubt. The contradiction of self-evident truths of man’s God-given rights being held in tandem with an iniquitous institution that violated those right by treating people as property was a scandal even then. Laws proposing slavery’s eventual abolition were discussed, and bans on slavery in new territories were proposed; its eventual elimination was a universal goal. The contradiction, however, ...

The rape exception

When the story broke that several Saskatchewan Party leadership contenders were pro-life, the reaction focused on the fact that Ken Cheveldayoff did not have an exception for rape. Within 24 hours, the presumptive frontrunner in the race to replace Brad Wall was backing down from his principled pro-life position. Of course, he said, he supported a “woman’s right to choose” in “circumstances where abortion is necessary.” Not surprisingly, he pointed to an exception for rape: “let me be very clear ...

The Crown raises questions about British monarchy

The Crown raises questions about British monarchy

If you go by an article published in the UK’s Independent last year, the anti-monarchist movement in that country isn’t very healthy. The story begins with five men handing out pamphlets in Leeds city centre on a rainy Saturday. (The canvasser who has their folding table is late, apparently.) They remain polite in the face of hostility from weekend shoppers with royalist sympathies, and one of the die-hard republicans ... (Continue reading)

Meet Sheilah Martin, the newest judicial activist

National Affairs Rory Leishman Madam Justice Sheilah Martin, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s latest pick for the Supreme Court of Canada, will probably be just as bad as – if not worse than – former Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and all the other judicial activists on the Court who have treated the 1982 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as a mandate for unelected judges to dictate public ...

A word to the pragmatists

A word to the pragmatists

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke There are many reasons why the content of Bill 163, the so-called “Safe Access to Abortion Services Act” and its passage through the Ontario legislature are lamentable. I could go on and on, as many have about the restriction of free speech, the absolute and intentional mischaracterization of pro-lifers, the harms that will result to both women and their unborn children, the Progressive ...

What Happened by Hillary Clinton (Simon & Schuster, $39.99, 494 pages) What Happened is Hillary Clinton’s account of the election debacle of 2016.
