Charity takes government to court over Summer Jobs discrimination

JCFF president John Carpay says the Liberals are still compelling ideological agreement with the government. A registered charity running summer camps for youth has filed court applications against the federal government after the charity’s applications for 2019 Canada Summer Jobs grants were denied. The charity, BCM (Canada) International, is a registered charitable organization, which runs two summer camps providing recreational [...]

What do you say when no one listens?

A group of male pro-lifers arrived on the campus of Penn State University recently to dialogue with students about what is truly the most important moral issue of our time. The results were mixed. However, a few female students rigidly maintained that men have no business talking about abortion. Therefore, dialogue between men and women, in their minds, on the subject of [...]

Court action exposes GSAs as ideological clubs

Law Matters John Carpay In March of 2015, Alberta’s Progressive Conservative government rushed a bill through the legislature in a matter of hours, requiring every school in Alberta to set up a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) at a student’s request. Politicians promised the public that GSAs would merely be peer support groups, not political clubs that advocate for an ideology. Four years [...]

Saskatchewan, Manitoba fund abortion pill

Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the last two provinces that were not funding Mifegymiso, the Canadian brand name for a combination of Mifepristone (RU-486), caved in June to pressure from pro-abortion activists. On June 3, Manitoba’s status of woman minister Rochelle Squires announced her Progressive Conservative government would expand access to Mifegymiso. Manitoba already pays for the two-drug combination when it is dispensed at [...]

The scandal of raking in tax dollars

The pro-abortion groups which actively worked to ban pro-life groups from receiving the Canada Summer Jobs Program strongly benefited from that same Canada Summer Jobs Program. And they benefited from lots of other government funding as well. Last year Joyce Arthur reported that pro-life groups had received $1.8 million in funding for the Canada Summer Jobs Program over eight years. That’s a [...]

Despite backlash, Instagram a forum for abortion debate

A widely shared meme on Instagram during the debate on pro-life bills in Georgia and Alabama in May. Social media is a platform that continues to grow and change the way people interact with one another. Social networking services enable users to interact with people more rapidly and on a larger scale. Instagram is a photo and video-sharing service where [...]

Handling ‘heart issues’

Occasionally, no rational argument will convince someone of the pro-life position, and maybe this is because their resistance to it comes from the heart and not the head. Experience will aid in your ability to identify when it’s a “heart issue.” The person you’re talking to could be very upset or highly irrational, or constantly returning to one particular circumstance or excuse. [...]

How to talk about abortion

Reassessing the purpose If given the chance, pro-lifers will jump at the opportunity to talk about abortion with fellow pro-lifers. Conversations with pro-choicers are often intimidating though. There are many reasons why an awareness that the pro-life position is not politically correct, or a fear of upsetting someone over this emotionally charged issue. A big factor is the pressure that comes with thinking [...]

How to not talk about abortion

In a 1976 issue of Esquire magazine, the late surgeon and writer, Richard Selzer, wrote about his experience of witnessing an abortion. He sets the scene: a professional doctor in his 40s, at ease in hospitals, and unfazed by the remedies and rites of the ailing body, he has asked to see a procedure which, like all right-thinking, university-town-dwellers, he notionally supports. What [...]

Chernobyl exposes insanity, brutality of Soviet regime

HBO’s miniseries Chernobyl arrived for streaming at a crucial moment for the company, just as the hangover from the end of Game of Throneswas starting to ebb. They needed a hit, and they got it with a five-hour story about the 1986 explosion at a nuclear power plant in the Soviet Ukraine. “Chernobyl is a thorough historical analysis,” wrote Sophie Gilbert in The Atlantic, [...]

Free speech and faith

Laying Down the Lawton Never doubt a group of politicians’ ability to find a cure that’s worse than the problem it is attempting to solve. This is truer than ever when it comes to the government’s efforts to curb online hate. Wishing to combat bigotry is a noble endeavour, but it isn’t the role of the state. Certainly not at [...]
