Pro-life candidates garner 35 per cent of first ballot support

CLC national president Jeff Gunnarson said the “pro-life candidates had stunning performances, representing a combined 35 per cent of the total vote on the first ballot.” He told The Interim that having “once again proved that pro-lifers are a large and important part of the Conservative coalition, Erin O’Toole needs to respect their views with more than lip service that social conservatives [...]

Analysis on the CPC election

Social conservatives prove to be MacKay's albatross The two pro-life candidates, Leslyn Lewis and Derek Sloan, won more than a third of the points in the first ballot, more than twice the support than the two pro-life candidates—Pierre Lemieux and Brad Trost— won in 2017. Erin O’Toole defeated Peter MacKay, the presumptive front runner, on the third ballot. The leadership race for [...]

Now What?

After what seemed like an eternity – both the seven-month campaign and the six-hour wait for the results to be announced on August 23 – the outcome of the Conservative leadership campaign should not have been a surprise, even if some of us were. The “natural” strengths of Peter MacKay never materialized as he did not win Quebec as expected, his victories [...]

CPC Leadership

French debate During the June 17 French-language debate, Conservative Party leadership contender Erin O’Toole said, “As a prime minister, I will defend the rights of people including women to choose for themselves when it comes to abortion. And if you hear anything to the contrary tonight, it will be a lie.” Puzzlingly, this answer came in response to a question about national [...]

Coronavirus-related pro-life stories

Canadian abortionists respond to covid-19 On March 18, Global Newsreported on how various work environments were impacted by the coronavirus; one was a Toronto abortuary. Jane Gerster reported on the “seemingly never-ending list of cancellations and closures,” noting that “The situation changes almost hourly.” She sought out human interest stories on how the widespread closure “is already changing people’s lives nationwide,” including [...]

Conservative leadership race features two pro-lifers

Décarie was barred, Karahalios disqualified With a week to go before the deadline to become a verified candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada, three Campaign Life Coalition-endorsed candidates met the threshold of $300,000 and 3000 signatures to qualify. A fourth, Richard Décarie, had been barred three weeks earlier from running by the Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC). Décarie [...]

Get even, not mad

One pro-lifer barred from running One pro-lifer disqualified Two pro-lifers still in the race Granting that there is time for righteous anger and that revenge is not particularly ennobling, our advice to pro-lifers disgusted that various bodies of the Conservative Party have prevented two pro-life, pro-family candidates from becoming verified candidates for the CPC leadership, is to stay engaged and show the [...]

Dismount the O’Toole train

On Super Tuesday II, I was watching the left-wing YouTube channel The Young Turks while primary results rolled in and I sat up when political pundit Krystal Ball joined the hosts. For some much-needed background, The Young Turks co-founder Cenk Uygur is also one of the founders of Justice Democrats, a political action committee committed to getting “progressives” like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria [...]

Décarie barred from Conservative leadership race

Richard Décarie   The Conservative Party of Canada's Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC) has informed pro-life and pro-family candidate Richard Décarie he is not allowed to contest the party's leadership. In February, Décarie told CTV's Evan Solomon that he did not refer to people as LGBQT, which he labeled a liberal term, saying he looks at every person as an [...]

Pro-life leadership contenders need our support

We have been stressing the need for every pro-lifer to take out a membership in the Conservative Party of Canada in order to vote for the pro-life and pro-family candidates running for its leadership. As we went to press, at least three Campaign Life Coalition-endorsed candidates were accepted by the party as approved candidates – Derek Sloan, Leslyn Lewis, and Jim Karahalios. [...]

CPC leadership race begins

After Andrew Scheer announced he was resigning as Conservative Party of Canada leader, the party scrambled to set up a leadership race, cancelling the leadership review and postponing the policy convention scheduled for May in Toronto. The leadership convention will be held June 27 in Toronto – the same day as the local gay pride parade – and the policy convention has [...]

Pro-lifers and the Conservative Party

Unlike some media that looked back at the 2010s to comment on the decade’s meaning, we did not do any retrospective articles or commentary when the calendar flipped on January first to begin the 2020s. But with a federal Conservative Party leadership race underway, we look back at recent political history and the impact of pro-life and pro-family Canadians in the various [...]

The Conservatives and The Interim

We often hear from readers that this paper seems too supportive of the Conservative Party. Campaign Life Coalition hears from their supporters that they are in the bag for the Tories. We appreciate why it seems this way, but it is not true. We are not partisan. We are pro-life. Unfortunately, in Canadian politics today the only major party that allows pro-life [...]
