The real We scandal: its support for abortion

The summer political news cycle was dominated a scandal that saw the Federal Liberals give money to the We Charity, which had paid speaking fees to members of the Trudeau family and provided travel to the family of then-finance minister Bill Morneau. In the Spring, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced $900-million in new funding for students who could not find summer work [...]

Pro-life candidates garner 35 per cent of first ballot support

CLC national president Jeff Gunnarson said the “pro-life candidates had stunning performances, representing a combined 35 per cent of the total vote on the first ballot.” He told The Interim that having “once again proved that pro-lifers are a large and important part of the Conservative coalition, Erin O’Toole needs to respect their views with more than lip service that social conservatives [...]

Analysis on the CPC election

Erin O’Toole defeated Peter MacKay, the presumptive front runner, on the third ballot. The leadership race for [...]

Over one third of Ontario’s English Catholic school boards support ‘Pride Month’

Eleven of Ontario’s 29 English Catholic school boards explicitly acknowledged June as “Pride Month,” even though “Pride” events are known for celebrating homosexuality, transsexualism, and other sexually deviant behaviors. The Catholic boards acknowledged “Pride Month” in the context of assurances that Catholic schools are inclusive and welcoming to all and often used the tagline: “We are all wonderfully made,” with an illustration [...]

UN, US in abortion conflict

Human rights groups chastise UN abortion advocacy Since Donald Trump became U.S. president in January 2017, he has vowed not to support the global abortion industry through American taxpayer funds. Since last October, his administration has ramped up its criticism of several United Nations efforts to promote abortion through various declarations and policies. Last year, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar [...]

Virtue of who you are, vote pro-life

Vote only for pro-life candidates I think it’s time we label voters like me and many other “social conservatives.” I would like to substitute the word virtue as the term used to describe a certain political type, a social conservative (socon). In my case, and my circle of friends, it is a much more accurate descriptor. We are virtue voters. A man/woman [...]

Candidates ignored euthanasia

Despite urgency of euthanasia, CPC front-runners do not address issue The Conservative leadership candidates have not focused closely on the issue of so-called Medical Aid in Dying, or MAiD (euthanasia), even though the government is debating the expansion of euthanasia through Bill C-7. The two supposed front-runners, Peter MacKay and Erin O'Toole have not addressed the issue. Derek Sloan vowed to "Extend the official review [...]

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 [...]
