CLCY coordinator Alissa Golob and CCCB communications director Jonathon Van Maren will be speaking in 23 cities in total from coast to coast in nine provinces and the tour will end May 12 in Peterborough, Ont.
Their goal is to highlight Trudeau’s “extremist position” on abortion to activate grassroots pro-lifers to distribute a million pieces of literature in ridings across the country, mass phone calling, and election volunteering for pro-life candidates ahead of the October federal election. Last May, Trudeau announced that all candidates for the Liberal Party had to support abortion.
Golob said, “for the first time in Canadian history, we have the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada forcing his entire caucus to hold his personal views on abortion.” She said Trudeau “is ignoring and discriminating against the majority of Canadians who support abortion restrictions, by proclaiming they are not welcome to run for the Liberal Party of Canada.” She said that under Trudeau, the Liberal “pro-choice position is no-choice.”
Van Maren said, “we plan on revitalizing pro-lifers and begin the creation of a new pro-life consensus in Canada.”
Historically, Campaign Life Coalition has urged supporters to ignore party affiliation and back candidates regardless of party. For the first time, CLC has informed Canadian pro-lifers that Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party is unsupportable in the upcoming federal election.
The campaign can be followed on Twitter through the hashtag #No2Trudeau.
In March, the campaign moved east from Victoria, hitting Vancouver, Chilliwack, and Kelowna B.C.; Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta; Regina and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and the northern Ontario communities of Thunder Bay and Sault Ste. Marie.
Organizers reported good crowds in their first stops in western Canada.
In April it moves to southwestern Ontario and Atlantic Canada before returning to Ottawa and Peterborough in May.
