In their May 2019 throne speech, the UCP promised to table family law amendments in 2020. The previous NDP government had passed legislation that included very concerning language that must be corrected and improved. The new Child, Youth, and Family Enhancement Act inserted gender identity ideology into the law for child and family services, removed foundational language about the family, and removed important safeguards that restrained government intervention.
We believe that marriage (and, by extension, the family) was the first institution that God created (Genesis 2:18, 24-25). Chronologically, the family supersedes the state, the church, and any other institution in society. For that reason, Christians often call the family the “basic unit” or “basic institution” of society. Yet the importance of the family is crumbling all around us.
