DISCRIMINATION CONTINUES: Tories deny pro-family funding

            On January 15, 1987 Secretary of State David Crombie (PC, Toronto Rosedale) refused REAL Women a sustaining grant for operations of an office and office staff.

Movie review: the mission

      If you have to crawl – or be carried – go and see The Mission a spectacular – thrilling – action-packed film with a spiritual message. Wrongly called an ‘epic film’ – shades of John Wayne – it’s a magnificent story of bravery and dedication – (and almost completely beyond the intelligence of some of our local critics who [...]

Parents versus the State

        It was truly ironic. During the Christmas season we celebrate the birth of a special Child, and many of us are blessed by having time to spend with family and friends. Just then, the nation’s newspapers covered the fight of the Alberta couple to save the life of their grandchild. As we all know, they lost that battle [...]

Book review: excavating The Desolate City

        It’s as plain as pie that, were the Catholic Church doing its job, we would not have abortion. Nor would the family be as it is, under attack. At least, attacks there may indeed be, and a terrible toll of casualties that increases as you move away from the Church, but very few among those inside the Church. [...]
