Catholic church reconsiders fitness for receiving Communion

LifeSiteNews.com Special to The Interim Prime Minister Paul Martin has presided over the passage of some of the most socially destructive legislation in Canada’s history and continues vocally to insist on his status as a “strong” Catholic. The recent visit of Mexican President Vincente Fox provided him with yet another occasion to appropriate the title, despite the fact he spearheaded the homosexual [...]

UNFPA shills for feminism UN agency releases report in Toronto calling for more abortion

Tony Gosgnach The Interim The alleged importance of “sexual and reproductive health” and “gender equality” to the alleviation of world poverty was a point constantly hammered home like a mantra when the release of the annual State of the World Population Report by the United Nations Fund for Population was heralded at a press conference in Toronto Oct. 12. Paddy Torsney, parliamentary [...]

Unhealthy health care

First of a two-part series Tony Gosgnach The Interim Every year, it takes up a huge chunk of federal and provincial budgets, is thought to kill 24,000 born people – and another 100,000 or so pre-born persons - and is rife with fraud to the tune of up to $10 billion. What is it? Why, the Canadian medical system, of course. At [...]

Don’t fight secularism with secular methods

Commentary by Rev. Tristan Emmanuel Special to The Interim Lorne Gunter’s recent article, “Fighting Canada’s Secular Tide,” which appeared in the National Post, is an interesting, and at points bang-on, analysis of the present challenge that faces social conservatives, but as the headline suggests, in the final analysis, he misses the point. You don’t fight secularism with an exclusively secular method. The [...]

Don’t believe the stem cell hype

Paul Tuns and John-Henry Westen The Interim U.S. researchers and a sycophantic mainstream media are trumpeting the latest embryonic stem cell “discovery” – stem cells that are derived ethically from embryos. According to the scientific magazine Nature, Massachusetts-based biotech firm Advanced Cell Technology has developed a procedure that removes single cells from early-stage embryos without always killing the embryo. Blastomere separation – [...]

Liberals team with Bloc to keep low age of consent

Peter Stock The Interim In late September, when the Paul Martin Liberals defeated yet another effort in Parliament by Conservative MPs to raise the age of sexual consent from 14 years to 16, it came as little surprise to battle-weary child-protection advocates. Despite repeated demands and growing pressure from the attorney-generals of every province, numerous police associations, anti-child prostitution advocates and pro-family [...]

Breaking News Press gallery targets Interim columnist

As we put the November issue to bed, we have learned that there is a move afoot among his fellow scribes to have The Interim’s Queen’s Park columnist, Frank Kennedy, removed from the press gallery of the Ontario legislature. The complaint against Frank, who has held an associate (part-time) membership since 1990, is that he distributed pro-life literature through the mailboxes of [...]

Even NDP merits a look

Bev Desjarlais quit the NDP and chose to sit as an independent MP after being ousted from the party for being the only member of her caucus to vote against same-sex “marriage.” In the nomination contest in her riding of Churchill (Manitoba), NDP leader Jack Layton supported Niki Ashton, a recent university graduate, who subsquently defeated Desjarlais. Most political observers believe Layton’s [...]

Turning knowledge into action

It is too-common, although understandable, that many pro-lifers are suffering from abortion or same-sex “marriage” fatigue. Informed social conservatives and people of faith have been barraged by news, debates and other information about redefining marriage to include homosexual couples over the past few years. Many pro-lifers have been reading not only The Interim, but our daily online service, LifeSiteNews.com, and other pro-life [...]

Bits ‘n’ Pieces

Canada The Canadian Abortion Rights Action League is changing its name to the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada. In October, CARAL officially closed its Ottawa doors, only to reopen under its new name. CARAL’s website explained: “Now that abortion is just one of the many reproductive services available to women, CARAL has closed its doors and discontinued its activities” ... Svend Robinson, the openly [...]

Who wrecked Canada

A rogue’s gallery: The Interim recently invited its readers* to nominate those who have most helped lead the moral assault on Canada. Here are the results. * The preponderance of Liberals on this list reflects the response of Interim readers and not the newspaper or its editorial advisory board. We were surprised that readers did not suggest, for example, former Prime Minister [...]
