28 Mar 2017 Canada Must Start Monitoring “Medically Assisted Dying”

Take Action: Send an EasyMail letter to share your concerns with your MP and MPP    When the Supreme Court of Canada legalized assisted suicide in Carter (2015), it allayed concerns about abuse by quoting the words of the trial judge, who said the risks of legalized assisted suicide can be minimized (not eliminated) through a “carefully designed system that imposes strict limits that are scrupulously monitored and enforced.” Put another way, only through a carefully designed system that is “scrupulously monitored and enforced” can the inherent risks of a legalized assisted suicide regime...

23 Jan 2017 Help stop harmful Federal Bill C-16 ‘Transgender Rights’ in the Senate

Read our first post about Bill C-16 'Transgender Rights' here. Bill C-16, introduced by the Liberal government, seeks to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act to outlaw discrimination on the basis of “gender identity” and “gender expression”. If passed, C-16 will also amend the Criminal Code to prohibit “hate propaganda” about people based on their gender identity or gender expression. If you came to one of our tour presentations this past fall, you will understand why this bill may have good intentions but will cause lasting harm. In fact, the people it...

06 Jan 2017 Bill 89 Pushes Gender Ideology in Child Services

Take Action: Use one of the three EasyMail letters to share your concerns about Bill 89 with your MPP Ontario's Family Law Revolution Continues Ontario's Bill 89, will (if passed) replace the Child and Family Services Act, which governs child protection, foster care, and adoption services. The “Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act” was introduced shortly after the legislature passed Bill 28, the so-called “All Families Are Equal Act”, and reflects similar ideological leanings. Bill 89 requires child protection, foster, adoption service providers, and judges to take into account and respect a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship,...

14 Dec 2016 Bill S-206: The Bill to Ban Spanking

Bill S-206, “An Act to amend the Criminal Code (protection of children against standard child-rearing violence)”, will, if passed, remove a provision of the Criminal Code (section 43) that permits parents to use limited, minor physical force for disciplinary purposes. This section of the Criminal Code as interpreted by the Supreme Court of Canada only permits disciplinary force that is sober and reasoned, addresses actual behaviour, and is intended to restrain, control, or express symbolic disapproval of a child’s behaviour. Further, the child must have the capacity to understand and benefit...

26 Oct 2016 Palliative Care: A more dignified option

Support C-277 Last year the Supreme Court of Canada overturned hundreds of years of legal, medical, and moral precedent, when it struck down the Criminal Code prohibitions on assisted suicide in the Carter case.  The Supreme Court gave Parliament the task of creating a system in which some people may kill others in some circumstances. On June 17, Bill C-14 became law after bouncing back and forth between the Senate and House of Commons. This law formally legalized euthanasia and assisted suicide in Canada. While the law was being crafted, we were able to engage with this policy debate in a huge way. With your help and by God’s grace, our message resulted in some positive changes to the law and helped mitigate the evil that was being endorsed by many Canadians.
