  • If Abortion is So Great, Why Are These Women So Devastated?

    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 (LifeSiteNews.com) – 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," Canada.com 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 (LifeSiteNews.com) – 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...

"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 (LifeSiteNews.com) – 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...

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...

Paramedics found the injured man all the way over at Southgate Road near Bank Street, about 1.5 km away.

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.

    NEW WESTMINSTER, British Columbia - A pig farmer accused of being Canada's worst serial killer was found guilty Sunday of six counts of second-degree murder, which carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison. The verdict ended the trial of Robert 'Willie' Pickton on the first six of 26 murder charges in the deaths of women, most of them prostitutes and drug addicts from a seedy Vancouver neighborhood. Pickton, 58, was tried for the killings of Mona Wilson, Sereena Abotsway, Marnie Frey, Brenda Wolfe, Andrea Joesbury and Georgina Papin. The defense acknowledged that their remains were found on Pickton's farm...

    TORONTO (CP) - Ontario youth will be learning more about global warming and climate change by watching the film "An Inconvenient Truth." Al Gore's Academy Award-winning film has been donated to hundreds of schools through a partnership between the province and the Tides Canada Foundation. Ontario Environment Minister Laurel Broten says the former U.S. vice-president's film will inspire students to "reduce their environment impact." British Columbia was the first jurisdiction in North America to have the film distributed in schools when they received the DVDs in April. Tides Canada Foundation director Tim Draimin says the film helps viewers think about...

    OTTAWA - The Quebec Ministry of Education has told unlicensed Christian evangelical schools that they must teach Darwin's theory of evolution and sex education or close their doors after a school board in the Outaouais region complained the provincial curriculum was not being followed. "Quebec children are legally required to follow the provincial curriculum ... but these evangelical schools teach their own courses on creationism and sexuality that don't follow the Quebec curriculum," said Pierre Daoust, director-general of the Commission Scolaire au Coeur-des-Vallees in Thurso, Que. Mr. Daoust's complaint sparked the province-wide investigation. Quebec law requires school boards to assure...

    Prime Minister Paul Martin is set to propose what Liberals are billing as a "total ban" on handguns today, in an election-campaign bid to show his party talking tough on gun crime, especially in Toronto. Liberal sources say that the proposed ban, to be announced by Martin today in Toronto, will be sweeping — only police and select security officers would be allowed to carry handguns. More money, on top of the $1.9 million announced in November, will also be promised for community policing in areas afflicted by gun violence, the sources said. Less than a month ago, Martin stood...

On Thursday, the province's highest court reserved its decision on a human rights case that has the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the Canadian Religious Freedom Alliance backing Regina resident Hugh Owens' fight to enter the political and controversial moral debate on gay rights by citing sacred scripture. "For the Christian community this is definitely a freedom of religion issue,'' said Alliance lawyer Janet Epp Buckingham. "The Bible is Censored,'' and "The Bible Considered...

    n Eagan man's conservative blog has become the talk of Canada, where a publication ban left many people hungry for news of a government scandal. Edward Morrissey, 42, began posting allegations of corruption in the Canadian Liberal Party late Saturday on his Captain's Quarters blog, a web log, which he runs as a hobby. It defies a ban, instituted by a federal judge, Justice John Gomery, that severely limits what Canadians can publish about the investigation into allegations of money laundering and kickbacks in a government program from the 1990s. The scandal dominated national politics for a year and led...

    MONTREAL — Canada's highest court gave its blessing to homosexual "marriage" yesterday, but protected religious organizations from being forced to sanction same-sex unions. The long-awaited decision permits the ruling Liberal Party to proceed with legislation to legalize the unions, making Canada the third nation to recognize homosexual unions, after with the Netherlands and Belgium. It's unlikely that Canadian "marriages" will be recognized as legal anywhere in the United States, including Massachusetts, which allows same-sex "marriage," but only for its residents or same-sex couples who plan to live in Massachusetts. A U.S. federal court already has ruled that Canadian same-sex "marriages"...

    We are engaged in the hottest political debate of our time; that is, whether marriage should be redefined to include same-sex couples or other alternatives. Everything from morality, legal benefits, the impact on children, public schools, government and private businesses have been discussed in the media. Incredibly, almost no attention has been focused on the very real threats to our civil and religious liberties. Specifically, the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status given to thousands of churches, nursing homes, schools, ministries, universities and radio stations may be at risk if an organization "discriminates" against a legally protected status, such as same-sex marriage.

    Same Sex Marriage is the Battle, not the War Advocates of same sex marriage have been preparing their arguments for years. The public ignored the issue as a fringe movement that would never make significant headway, so many religious and political leaders were caught off guard when a series of court rulings rapidly made it a hot public issue. It is no surprise then that much of the reasoning used in the political arena to oppose gay marriage has been disappointing and less effective than desired.

    Sometimes, protesters prove their opponents' point. In Canada last month, a dozen masked men wearing military camouflage burst into a Christian meeting at a Calgary, Alberta, hotel. They beat sticks together, hoisted signs, and roared slogans, drowning out a speech by Rev. Tristan Emmanuel on "Christophobia" and the actions taken against Christians for their unpopular views on homosexuality. "Haters!" screamed the self-proclaimed "Gay Militia" into the faces of men and women who had been meeting peacefully. "Bigots! ... What you are doing is a hate crime!" The raucous invasion lasted 10 to 15 minutes, said Jim Blake, regional director of...

    A bill introduced by Canadian parliament member Svend Robinson that would make free speech against homosexuals a crime passed in the House of Commons. The "Chill Bill," or C-250, passed by a vote of 140-110 on Wednesday despite objections from the religious community that religious speech would be limited by the law if they speak out against homosexuality. If it becomes law, then the "Chill Bill," which is also known as the "Bible As Hate Literature" bill, would ban speech that would be used in condemnation of homosexuality or homosexual acts. This is similar to the anti-hate speech law in...
