    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke Wednesday about a new requirement in the Canadian summer jobs grant application that groups must indicate support for “the right to access safe and legal abortions” to be included in the program. Trudeau defended the requirement and called groups opposed to abortion “not in line with where we are as a government, and quite frankly where we are as a society.”"If you're pro-life then you are ridiculed and insulted, but if you're pro-choice then you are praised," a student told Trudeau at a town hall at McMaster University and was greeted with applause.Trudeau replied...

    The Fight for 15 crowd is having more success in the Great White North than they’ve seen across much of the United States lately, with Ontario being the latest province to massively increase their minimum wage. What could possibly go wrong?As we’ve already seen repeatedly on our side of the border, quite a bit, actually. And as soon as the new mandatory minimum went into effect on January 1st, big employers of largely unskilled, lower wage workers responded in the only way available to them. They began cutting costs, starting with perks and benefits, but also reducing hours and even...

    He told The Canadian Press that his two daughters, who are 13 and 15, and his ex-wife were having breakfast with two friends — a man and his wife. The man had recently travelled overseas and brought back some tea from India. The relative did not know the name of the tea. That kicked off the “whole crazy spell,” he said. Mounties have said a man, woman and baby were forced against their will from a home in Leduc County into a BMW. Inside the car were five naked people. While the car was being driven, the abducted man, who...

    An Ottawa man has been charged after allegedly robbing a fast-food restaurant wielding a machete. Police say the "takeover-style robbery" happened last July at a restaurant on Bank Street, north of Hunt Club Road. They say two men broke into the restaurant just before 3 a.m. on July 7 while it was operating drive-through service only. One of the men was armed with a machete and confronted the employees; the other grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash. Police say 19-year-old Kaizen Ritch-O'Reilly turned himself in on Thursday. He's facing two counts each of robbery, forcible confinement and assault with a...

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has extended his condolences following the death of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, calling him a “legendary revolutionary and orator.” Castro’s death was announced on state television early Saturday. He was 90 years old. “It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving president,” Trudeau said in a statement issued later in the day, offering his “deepest condolences” on behalf of all Canadians. “We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader,” he said.

    It’s not long before the do-it-yourself abortion pill Mifegymiso will be available in Canada. Expected to be prescribed as early as this summer, the combination of two medications, taken a day or two apart, usually at home, is considered an effective way to end the life of pre-born children up to 7 weeks old. A recent article in the National Post presents the regulations around the pill, and the response. Pro-abortion groups are angry about the need for this medication to be prescribed by a physician, as well as the fact that doctors may choose to have the patient ingest...

    What if domestic animals — pets such as dogs and cats as well livestock like cows and chickens — were granted citizenship rights? That may sound like a crazy question, but Canadian philosopher Will Kymlicka thinks it's a critically important one. Kymlicka, a professor at Queen's University, is a well-regarded figure in modern political philosophy. He's also the author, along with writer Sue Donaldson, of Zoopolis, a book making the case for animal citizenship. Their basic premise is simple: animals are already part of our society, as pets and work animals, therefore we should formally recognize them as such. That's...

    One year ago, I had just finished the final leg in a 212km walk from Montreal, Quebec to Ottawa, Ontario. I was the youngest member in a team of 25 women who participated in the Back to Life Walk. The purpose of the walk was to empower women who have been personally affected by abortion in some way by giving them back their voices. Over the course of the 3-week journey, I had the privilege of getting to know the women and hearing their stories. Their stories opened my 16-year-old eyes to the reality that, because of abortion, women’s choices...

    TORONTO, March 11, 2014 ( – The thin veneer of Toronto’s annual homosexual parade, ostensibly promoted as "family friendly," has been further chipped away by a mainstream media columnist who insists that “in-your-face sexuality is the point of the damn thing." "Ultimately, there are worse things than seeing a penis flopping down Yonge Street," News Editor Lauren Strapagiel wrote in an article attacking the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) trustees who raised questions about the legality of public nudity at the pride parade.

    TORONTO, January 31, 2014 ( – The head of Ontario’s human rights commission is defending the right of ‘transgendered’ men to use women’s changing rooms in response to a woman’s complaint that she was ogled by a naked man who was sexually aroused at her local Y. In a letter to a Toronto Star ethics columnist earlier this month the woman complained that the man, who claimed to be transgendered, asked her uncomfortable questions, including if she "came here often." "I understand that gender is no longer judged solely by genitalia," the woman wrote to the Star, "but does a...

    PETERBOROUGH, Ontario, August 22, 2013 ( – A priest is considering pressing charges against an angry woman who drove him away from a public sidewalk during a pro-life demonstration with a jet of water from her garden hose. “Her husband turned on the hose, and she sprayed it on me,” Father Ron Meyer told “As pro-life people we put Jesus’ message of love and forgiveness into practice," he said. "But maybe there is a time to push back, so that [abortion activists] realize they can’t do whatever they want to us and get away with it.” Fr. Meyer, who...

    OTTAWA, Ontario, March 27, 2013 ( – Canada’s largest Evangelical network has slammed Manitoba’s proposed anti-bullying legislation (Bill 18), saying it would “violate the religious freedom of religious schools” by forcing them to promote sexual concepts contrary to the Bible. The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC) said in a press release today that the most up-to-date data paints a different picture of bullying in schools than what is often portrayed by mainstream media. “While we might think from the media coverage that children are most often bullied for reasons relating to sexual orientation or gender identity, students are actually most...

    – In what pro-life leaders are calling a stunning and unprecedented attack on religious freedom, Ontario’s Education Minister has apparently declared that Catholic schools can no longer teach that abortion is wrong. Laurel Broten, who serves under Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty, said Wednesday that Catholic schools are barred from teaching this core moral belief because Bill 13, the government’s controversial “anti-bullying” law, prohibits “misogyny.” “Taking away a woman’s right to choose could arguably be considered one of the most misogynistic actions that one could take,” she told the Canadian Press. “I don’t think there is a conflict between choosing Catholic...

    The Federal Court of Canada on Wednesday ordered Air Canada to pay $12,000 to Ottawa French-language rights crusader Michel Thibodeau in part because when he asked an English-speaking flight attendant for 7Up in May 12 of 2009, he got Sprite. Air Canada was also ordered to apologize to Mr. Thibodeau and his wife Lynda. It is Mr. Thibodeau’s second successful legal action against the airline and its subsidiaries. In 2000, he was refused service in French when he tried to order a 7Up from a unilingual English flight attendant on an Air Ontario flight from Montreal to Ottawa. Mr. Thibodeau...

The man had apparently tripped just as he left the store and seriously injured himself, but then was able to make...

    As recently as early January, Brock Lesnar was convinced he needed surgery to deal with a case of diverticulitis – a condition that essentially left a hole in his intestine and put his career as Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title holder in jeopardy. He might be out a year. Or it might be two. Or it might be forever. The story goes on to describe Lesnar's battle with diverticulitis, along with stating his opinion of the Canadian health care system. I took the paragraph out of the article to show you what he said of the Canadian health care...
