Pro-life MPs bid adieu

Earlier this week Rob Anders and Garry Breitkreuz, pro-life Conservative MPs who are not running for re-election, made statements in the House of Commons saying good-bye to colleagues and thanking supporters. There are two excerpts worth highlighting. Yesterday, Breitkreuz (Yorkton-Melville) said: I will give members an idea of what has moulded my career here. I became a Christian when I was in university. It was a huge struggle for me. I was challenged to scratch below the ... (Continue reading)

NDP priorities: eliminating people in developing world

The Ottawa Citizen reports, "An NDP government would lift the ban on Canadian foreign aid dollars being used for safe abortions in the world’s poorest countries, Tom Mulcair will announce Tuesday." In 2010, the Conservative government initiated a maternal health program that did not fund abortions in the developing world. The so-called Muskoka Initiative funded nutrition programs, sanitation infrastructure, and safe obstetrics so mothers can deliver their babies healthy and alive. The focus on the maternal health program ... (Continue reading)

Traditionalism in Canada 50 years after Lament for a Nation

Traditionalism in Canada 50 years after Lament for a Nation

2015 is the 50th Anniversary of George Grant’s Lament for a Nation: The Defeat of Canadian Nationalism, probably Grant’s best known and most accessible book. One could sharply ask today – is there still really a place for Grantian-type traditionalism in current-day Canada? First of all, it should be remembered that Grant’s profound and subtle definition of conservatism is very remote from what is its more common definition today, as ... (Continue reading)

Anti-sex ed rally at Queen’s Park

It's nice to see that the CBC's Mike Crawley says that a half-hour before the 11 am start the crowd "is rather large already" for the anti-sex ed rally at Queen's Park today. Last time several reporters claimed dozens when it was in fact hundreds of protesters. Liberal MPPs, including Premier Kathleen Wynne, have faced numerous protests over the government's radical plan to "update" the province's early sex-ed curriculum, and unless the government withdraws its proposal and works with ...

Did Justin Trudeau really say abortion is Canada’s greatest achievement

So I saw Paul Tuns' link to Justin Trudeau's speech last week on "Canadian Liberty" and the Liberal Leader was conspicuous, as he usually is, in talking about liberty or Charter values, without being specific. Liberty is just this thing he invokes, because Liberals need to be about Liberty, he says. There is an exception to his lack of specificity, and that's abortion. Justin Trudeau thinks that abortion is a really good thing. In fact, Justin Trudeau believes ... (Continue reading)

Liberals want rushed debate on assisted suicide before election

What the Trudeau Liberals are doing makes no sense. The Canadian Press reports that federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau wants the Conservative government to make clear how it plans to respond to the Supreme Court's decision on assisted-suicide before October's scheduled election.Earlier this month, the Supreme Court of Canada threw out the Criminal Code prohibitions on euthanasia and assisted-suicide and told Parliament it has one year to create a new law. If Parliament does not create a new law, there will ... (Continue reading)

What you can do about the Supreme Court assisted-suicide decision?

On February 6, the Supreme Court of Canada threw out the Criminal Code prohibition on euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide. Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, says his organization wants the Canadian government to invoke the notwithstanding clause and urges citizens to contact their MPs to request they stand up for vulnerable Canadians. He includes a list of talking points: People with disabilities oppose assisted suicide. Assisted suicide debate masks disability prejudice. Assisted suicide has devalued the ... (Continue reading)

Pro-life former Liberal MPs to Trudeau: rescind anti-life edict

Yesterday, seven former Liberal Members of Parliament sent an open letter to Justin Trudeau regarding his edict earlier this year that pro-lifers cannot even run for a Liberal Party nomination. We reprint the letter below. Trudeau responded to the letter with a tweet: "The days when old men get to decide what a woman does with her body are long gone. Times have changed for the better. #LPC defends rights." Here is the open letter: Dear ... (Continue reading)

CLC petitions Trudeau to reverse abortion position

Campaign Life Coalition has launched a website with a petition and social media campaign to "Demand Justin Repeal This Policy of Exclusion, Intolerance & Discrimination" -- the policy, of course, being Justin Trudeau's diktat that all Liberal candidates in the future must be "pro-choice." The Toronto Sun has a story on CLC's campaign, reporting, "Canada's largest anti-abortion group says that for democracy to flourish, pluralistic views and diversity of voices must be permitted on issues of conscience in ...

Canada’s Catholic bishops and Justin Trudeau

As usual Liberal Party activist Adam Goldenberg doesn't get it. He says in the Globe and Mail that Justin Trudeau is right to demand a pro-abortion litmus test on candidates for the Liberal Party and religious leaders are wrong: It’s one thing for clergy to express their views on a policy issue, but it’s quite another for them to assert that their parishioners have no choice but to listen to them. Want to live in a country where ... (Continue reading)

Liberal Party endorses euthanasi

This past weekend the Liberal Party of Canada adopted a resolution at its biennial policy convention calling for decriminalization of euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide in a vote by show of hands.
