And then there was this …

Canada The Superior Court of Quebec ruled that federal legislation that restricts euthanasia to those for whom a patient’s natural death was “reasonably foreseeable” was unconstitutional. Justice Christine Baudouin agreed with arguments that the restriction caused needless suffering for those who had pain but was not going to die imminently. Denying such patients assisted dying, Baudouin wrote, is “forcing them to endure [...]

Brazilian PM rails against inhuman ideologies

Jair Bolsonaro Editor’s Note: On Sept. 24, Brazilian President Jair Messias Bolsonaro addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations. This is an excerpt from that speech. Over the past few decades, we let ourselves be seduced by ideologies that sought not the truth, but absolute power.

With a little help from our enemies

Light is Right Joe Campbell When he said he was a convert, several who heard him turned away. Maybe they thought a convert was a cross between a convict and a pervert. “I converted to Catholicism a year ago,” he explained, as they dispersed. A cradle Catholic, I’ve always been interested in conversion stories. I asked about his. “I was [...]

Euthanasia unleashed

We have two stories in the “And then there was this” section at the back of the paper that demonstrate that it is impossible to hold the line on euthanasia. In Quebec, the Superior Court threw out the restriction that euthanasia be limited to those whose deaths are reasonably foreseeable. In British Columbia, the provincial College of Physicians and Surgeons ruled that [...]

Striving for excellence

Kirk Gibson's iconic 1988 World Series home run. Donald DeMarco writes is an example of one of the great joys of life. In sports, you either win or lose, but you cannot win unless you play the game. This axiom applies to life as well as to philosophy. One cannot succeed in life unless he puts aside the fear of [...]

How to vote pro-life

Andrew Scheer has been a disappointing Conservative leader. For pro-life and pro-family Canadians, he has not lived up to the promise of his stellar voting record as a long-time MP. Some pro-lifers were hoping that despite his repeated avowal to not reopen the abortion issue, he would allow the many pro-life members of the Conservative caucus and swelling ranks pro-life candidates in [...]

Don’t be these people this election

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke I had a hard time deciding what to write this column on because I’m not sure who bothers me more this election: “Pro-lifers” planning to vote Liberal/NDP/Green or pro-lifers insisting it’s “Conservative or bust.” I decided to write about both, in a “fun” exercise of considering which mindset is more infuriating. Let us look at Exhibit [...]

The real lesson of Trudeau’s blackface fiasco

Andrew Lawton It’s difficult to imagine a lot less worthy of compassion than politicians, by and large. Much as politics may sap the humanity out of some, they’re people nonetheless – with the same messy histories that the rest of us have. I found myself mildly sympathetic with Justin Trudeau when news broke of his penchant for donning blackface for much [...]
