Why I will rank half my ballot

The Interim recently published an online opinion piece from former MP Brad Trost, titled, “Why I will rank my full ballot” (as well as my Campaign Life Coalition blogpost on the Conservative Party of Canada leadership race). As Trost considers Campaign Life Coalition a friend, so we consider him a friend. As I alluded to in my blog about the CPC leadership [...]

Only Sloan and Lewis

Only Sloan and Lewis deserve pro-life support Leslyn Lewis and Derek Sloan true conservatives for life. The only debates of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) leadership race took place last Wednesday in French and last Thursday in English. If you’re a Conservative Party member, you’ve likely been bombarded with emails from all four candidates’ campaigns over the past few [...]

Why I will rank my full ballot

Brad Trost former Conservative Member of Parliament My friends at Campaign Life Coalition believe that social conservative members of the Conservative Party should abdicate their responsibility to fully participate in the current federal leadership to chose the next Conservative Leader and in this, I believe them to be wrong. In all of Canada’s history prime ministers have really only come [...]

Fads, fallacies, and flags

Commentary St. Jerome’s University, in Waterloo, Ont., and purportedly a Catholic institution, has decided to fly the LGBTQ flag on its campus to celebrate “Pride” month. Interim President Scott Kline, whose term began on July 1, 2019, defended the action as a way of sending the message that “all are welcome in this place.” The immediate reaction to the move has shown [...]

And then there was this …

Canada The May edition of REALITY, the publication of REAL Women, reported that the Quebec feminist group, Federation des femmes du Quebec (FFQ), which had its federal funding withdrawn by the Harper government in 2010, has been funded once again since Justin Trudeau’s Liberals regained power. They have given FFQ $1,986,270. REALITYreports that in January, the Canadian Press reported that FFQ has [...]

Religious freedom

"Separation of church and state!” “Canada is a secular country!” “We can’t let religion dictate policy!” I’m sure we’ve all heard variations of these, if not the phrases verbatim, at various points in our lives. Indeed, the mere suggestion that a course of action may have a moral element seems to trigger knee-jerk reactions along these veins. There’s some truth to them, [...]

Beware COVID-19 misinformation

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke At the beginning of the year, it was fellow pro-lifers – more than anyone else – who were warning me about COVID-19. As recently as last month, these same pro-lifers were up in arms about the devastation the Chinese Communist Party had wreaked upon the world. Then, inexplicably, sometime between then and now, many (but not [...]

Lockdown musings and the future normal

Amusements Rick McGinnis It has been more than eight weeks now since we were told not to leave the house. At this point I’m not sure if I’m more dumbfounded that this even happened, or that the majority of the world, at least for the sake of appearances, agreed so placidly (at first) to put their lives on hold. If [...]

The nuclear option

Light is Right Joe Campbell Looking distraught, my friend Bidwell confessed that he misses Mass on Sundays. “Occasionally?” I asked. “Repeatedly,” he replied. “Well, don’t confess it to me,” I said. ”Confess it to your pastor.” “Oh,” Bidwell said, “he and the bishop are well aware that I and many others in the parish miss Sunday Mass.” “I thought you [...]

Canada approves trials of unethical coronavirus vaccine

A vaccine watchdog group has raised concerns about Health Canada approving a human clinical trial for a Chinese coronavirus vaccine that uses aborted fetal cell lines in its development. The vaccine, Ad5-nCoV, was discovered by Chinese scientists and is scheduled imminent testing in Canada. The vaccine Ad5-nCoV uses the HEK293 cell line that is derived from aborted fetal cells. The HEK293 cell [...]

Wade, made a deathbed confession that her conversion to pro-life [...]

Suicide and Mental Illness

Italian psychiatrist raises doubts about assisted suicide and mental illness Bernardo Carpiniello reports that psychiatrists raise serious clinical concerns in approving euthanasia for mentally ill patients. Bernardo Carpiniello of the Department of Medical Sciences and Public Health-Unit of Psychiatry at the University of Cagliari, Italy, published an article in the Journal of the Italian Society of Psychiatrywarning about the dangers [...]

Prevention and promotion?

It is madness, if you will excuse the expression, to extend Canada’s already-permissive euthanasia/assisted suicide regime to the mentally ill. As we have recently reported in these pages, the Trudeau government’s Bill C-7 eliminates what modest restrictions existed in their 2016 euthanasia law, including that death be imminent. While claiming that C-7 does not allow mental illness as a reason to access [...]
