Our Mission

The mission of ARPA Canada is to educate, equip, and encourage Reformed Christians to political action and to bring a biblical perspective to our civil authorities. ARPA Canada exists because we care. We care about our nation, our communities, our families, and our freedoms. Most of all, we care about what God says is good and right. Jesus Christ told us that the greatest commandment is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” and to “Love your neighbour as yourself.” How do we show love? By living our lives in devotion to Him.

On #LighthouseNews this week, two interviews touching on two recent Supreme Court of Canada rulings.

ARPA’s Director of Law and Policy, André Schutten - who appeared as an intervener in the TWU case - analyzes the ruling.

ARPA lawyer John Sikkema had appeared as an intervener in the Wall case, gives some analysis of that ruling.

Seems ridiculous that the governing bodies would be able to use "public perception" concerns to withhold accreditation--elitist, discriminatory, misleading as to the quality of the program....and it's just not true. Can the public even recall who gives the accreditation? Maybe a bit more for a law school but would the public ever hold them in less esteem because they follow sound procedure and bestow the accreditation-no, I don't think so...just the opposite. Interesting on the "optional" covenant. You'd probably disappoint and disillusion some students, whether they remember, hold it against you 😉 whether you have to discuss it much--not sure. This drastic court change is a big concern, isn't it.
