Bits & Pieces

Canada During a nomination hearing, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s first Supreme Court appointee, Justice Malcolm Rowe of Newfoundland and Labrador, elaborated on his comment in his application for the job that he believes judges make law rather than limit themselves to interpreting it, saying “it is our responsibility to encroach upon the authority of Parliament.” The Mail’s Sean Fine said the comments [...]

Donald Trump won the election. What now?

Donald Trump won the presidency on Nov. 9. Pro-lifers are watching to see if he fulfills his promise to appoint anti-Roe v. Wade judges. Against the odds and perhaps even the expectations of the Trump campaign (if friendly media reports are to be believed), real estate tycoon Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States. Despite making [...]

Breeding confusion

You probably haven’t heard of Bill 28, “An Act to Amend the Children’s Law Reform Act,” also known as the “All Families are Equal Act.” The Ontario government is ramming through this Orwellian bill that redefines family relationships. It was introduced on Sept. 29 and passed second reading and sent to the Standing Committee on Social Policy within a week for a [...]

The importance of abstinence

If we would ask “Who is the most important person in your life?” what would your response be? In today’s culture many would answer without hesitation, “myself.” In that scenario what would that person’s greatest desire be? What they want to do and have will be uppermost in their mind. A worship disorder has been created which satisfies the self. If the [...]

No conscience rights for euthanasia

National Affairs Rory Leishman The vise of oppression is closing ever so tightly on pro-life physicians in Canada that they are liable soon to be drummed out of the profession for steadfastly refusing to collaborate in the deliberate killing of patients. That seems to be just fine with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal colleagues. In the government’s recently [...]

Law Matters John Carpay Alberta’s education minister has launched a formal inquiry into two Edmonton-area Baptist schools, ostensibly to ensure a “welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) students.” This inquiry has its origins in Bill 10, passed in a matter of hours, without public consultation.

Progressive solecisms (Part II)

There is a certain intellectual consistency, at least, between the expedient fluidity of liberals’ positions on women, gays, and Islam, and their affectation that gender is a matter of private whim. For progressives, after all, neither words nor states of being are ever objectively fixed. Thus marriage is not a union between a man and a woman as determined by immemorial custom [...]

Light is Right Joe Campbell Disloyalty spoils everything. Look what it’s done to professional sports. I’m not talking about things like fixing games or using performance-enhancing chemicals. I’m talking about shredding bonds between players and fans. I don’t know about you, but when I get interested in a sport, I commit seriously to particular teams and players. Because of roster [...]

BC plans to skirt abortion pill rules

When Health Canada okayed the abortion drug Mifegymiso in 2015 for distribution this year, it imposed conditions, including that physicians only dispense the drug (and not a pharmacist), that they could only prescribe the drug after taking an online course, and that the aborting patient return for a follow-up. The conditions were requested by the manufacturer, Linepharma International Limited, due to safety [...]
