And then there was this …

Canada Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has announced new funding of $8.9 million for international abortion organizations. As outlined in this column last month, Trudeau’s core government “foreign policy” was revealed as a threefold, interconnected, abortion platform: feminism and the rights of women and girls; the right to safe and accessible abortion; and, promotion of LGBTQ rights. In addition, Canada’s deputy minister proudly [...]

COVID-19 double standards

Law Matters John Carpay In April, Ontario Premier Doug Ford denounced people who were protesting against the lockdown as “absolutely irresponsible, selfish, reckless, law-breaking yahoos.” In Alberta, lone protester Cody Haller was arrested and dragged out of the Alberta legislature grounds by sheriffs on May 11 and slapped with a $1200 ticket. The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is representing [...]

Evil spirits

Light is Right Joe Campbell Of course I believe in ghosts. I’ve been one. So have most writers who detoured through public relations on the way to more honourable callings. Chances are they’ve ghostwritten letters, speeches, articles, even books, not to mention jokes, apologies, eulogies, and marriage proposals. In public relations, things are not as they seem. For some years, [...]

Conservative judicial activism?

National Affairs Rory Leishman Should morally enlightened judges strike down any statute that sanctions pornography, abortion, or euthanasia? The late, great Antonin Scalia did not think so. As a devout Catholic, he clearly understood that pornography, abortion, and euthanasia are unmitigated evils, yet as one of the most learned judges ever to serve on the Supreme Court of the United [...]

Revolution

Andrew Lawton Australian wildfires. A global pandemic. Murder hornets (if you don’t know, don’t ask). Could a revolution be next among 2020’s offerings? I don’t, but that doesn’t mean things aren’t changing. After a police officer was filmed with his knee on George Floyd’s neck during an arrest in Minneapolis – an arrest that proved fatal for Floyd – a [...]

Moving

As I have noted in previous issues, we are putting this paper together remotely, from our homes. Since I returned from a brief vacation to the U.S. in early March, I’ve been in quarantine with my family. A few days after we returned, the country underwent quarantine to battle the spread of the coronavirus. The fact is, I probably prefer working from [...]

Taxpayer-funded abortion group suggests banning National March for Life

The federally funded Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights has hinted it is time to shut down Campaign Life Coalition’s annual National March for Life. Sandeep Prasad, executive director of Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights, and Rev. Alba Onofrio, director of Soulforce, co-wrote at rabble.ca, a left-wing website that the National March for Life is “the largest demonstration against [...]

Trudeau government adjusts COVID-19 relief loan eligibility

The Trudeau government updated eligibility requirements for a COVID-19 emergency relief business loan to explicitly recognize the legal rights of religious groups after LifeSiteNews reported on the matter and 5,082 people signed a LifeSiteNews petition requesting what the government ended up doing. LifeSiteNews reported in April that Canada’s Liberal government was forcing businesses, non-profits, and registered charities that applied for the Canada Emergency Business [...]

Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter supports abortion, LGBTQ+ agenda Following the death of George Floyd – he died after being arrested for allegedly using a counterfeit $20 bill and the arresting officer, Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck and back for nearly nine minutes – there were protests, first in Minneapolis and later across the United States and around the globe, organized by Black [...]

A fractured universalism

The pandemic lockdowns had not been lifted before riots broke out across America, unrest which then spread throughout the Western world. Sparked by the stomach-churning video of a black man being suffocated by a white cop, the fires of outrage which led to these riots have since cooled, and have now become smoldering piles of suspicion. In corporate, academic, political, and celebrity [...]

CPC Leadership

French debate During the June 17 French-language debate, Conservative Party leadership contender Erin O’Toole said, “As a prime minister, I will defend the rights of people including women to choose for themselves when it comes to abortion. And if you hear anything to the contrary tonight, it will be a lie.” Puzzlingly, this answer came in response to a question about national [...]

When police stop seeing persons

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke In early 2016, an Arizona police officer yelled highly confusing commands at a sobbing and terrified Daniel Shaver (who, as it turns out, was unarmed), warning him that if he made a mistake, he might die, and die he did. For the sake of this column, I rewatched the video of this incident, witnessing his body [...]

Why I will rank half my ballot

The Interim recently published an online opinion piece from former MP Brad Trost, titled, “Why I will rank my full ballot” (as well as my Campaign Life Coalition blogpost on the Conservative Party of Canada leadership race). As Trost considers Campaign Life Coalition a friend, so we consider him a friend. As I alluded to in my blog about the CPC leadership [...]

Only Sloan and Lewis

Only Sloan and Lewis deserve pro-life support Leslyn Lewis and Derek Sloan true conservatives for life. The only debates of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) leadership race took place last Wednesday in French and last Thursday in English. If you’re a Conservative Party member, you’ve likely been bombarded with emails from all four candidates’ campaigns over the past few [...]
