14 Nov 2011 Dozens Gather on Steps of BC Supreme Court to Oppose Euthanasia

Well over a dozen ARPA readers joined a much larger group on the steps of the BC Supreme Court this morning, facing a multitude of TV cameras and reporters, to send a loud and clear message that Canada must close the door to state-sanctioned death by means of euthanasia and assisted suicide. The group assembled in response to the opening day of hearings in a case that has the potential to strike down Canada's laws against assisted suicide. Garett Vane, a member of Langley ARPA and one of the organizers of the demonstration, noted that he was impressed by the turnout of both the media and the many citizens who braved the cold to hold signs. "There is no doubt that this case is a big news story" he commented. "The press showed up already before 5:30 am." The demonstration was organized by the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, which also has intervenor status in the case. At the time of writing this article, there were already over 100 news stories on the topic, according to Google News.

01 Feb 2011 Event: A Battle Requires Warriors, Not Couch Potatoes

Thursday, Feb 17th at 7:30 pm in the Grand Valley CanRC  Facebook Event Page The political decisions being made in Ottawa and Toronto can protect your basic freedoms or create a climate of fear where some subjects may not be talked about. They can encourage parental-based education of our youth or inculcate humanism and promote alternative sexual lifestyles. They can promote environmental stewardship or pantheistic environmentalism. They can encourage families and children or devalue the aged and weak. Will we watch our society make these choices from the sidelines, or will we put on our spiritual armour and engage in these important decisions?
