On the road by air

As my business occasionally takes me to different parts of Canada, recently I have begun to contact various pro-life groups in the cities I visit. In August, for example, I was in Calgary and in Edmonton (two days each), and in September, business took my partner and I to Vancouver for a week. I cannot speak too highly of the kindness and generosity extended by those I have contacted. Everywhere, people gave ... (Continue reading)

The Manitoba League for Life organized their signature campaign in six weeks. A preliminary advertisement describing the drive resulted in signed coupons and donations arriving in the League's office at over 1,000 a day.

The R.E.A.L. Women of Canada Realistic, Equal, Active, for Life

On Mother's Day this year we celebrated the birth of a special Canadian baby. Small but vocal, like all newborns, this child represents the true women's movement. This pro-family, pro-life national women's organization, the R.E.A.L. Women of Canada, was conceived by a group of women who could no longer tolerate the way the majority is being represented. Together with the media, the various women's groups who purport to speak for the women of this country in fact only speak for small ... (Continue reading)
