As trans activists viciously attack school trustee, one gay Toronto doctor says that kids grow out of trans feelings

By Jonathon Van Maren As many of you will remember, back in November I wrote about the uproar surrounding a school trustee in Chilliwack, British Columbia. Barry Neufeld had the misfortune of not only opposing the promotion of transgenderism in schools—which is different than discriminating against kids, which is of course what he’s been accused…

President Donald Trump proclaims January 22 to be “National Sanctity of Human Life Day”

By Jonathon Van Maren On the heels of the Trump Administration’s move to protect the conscience rights of pro-life healthcare providers, the proclamation of January 16 to be “Religious Freedom Day,” and Donald Trump’s speech at the National March for Life, Donald Trump has now released a proclamation declaring January 22 to be “National Sanctity…

Condemnation of Trudeau’s “abortion attestation” for the Canada Summer Jobs program is nearly unanimous

By Jonathon Van Maren If someone had told me last year that Canadian editorial boards and media outlets right across the political spectrum and the country would be expressing nearly universal outrage at Justin Trudeau’s decision to insert an “abortion attestation” into the Canada Summer Jobs application, I wouldn’t have believed it.

A bit of searching led…

Canada’s state broadcaster admits that Trudeau is wrong–abortion is not a Charter right

By Jonathon Van Maren Canada’s state broadcaster, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, is known for being overtly left-wing. I’ve often had to cringe or glare at my radio while weaving through traffic, as some smarmy interviewer condescendingly demanded of some interviewee an explanation for some ideological heresy. During the debate on assisted suicide, it was accepted…

Poland defeats abortion legislation–and moves to ban aborting children with Down Syndrome

By Jonathon Van Maren While abortion activists hammer pro-life laws across Europe and attempt to defeat pro-life Ireland’s constitutional amendment protecting pre-born children, Poland continues to push back against any attack on children in the womb. Last week, Polish lawmakers repudiated another attempt to legalize the killing of pre-born children by defeating a draft bill…

Religious groups meet in Toronto to discuss response to Justin Trudeau’s ideological purity test

By Jonathon Van Maren While Justin Trudeau may hope the “kerfuffle” over his government’s decision to insert an “attestation” requirement demanding that applicant groups indicate their support for abortion into the Canada Summer Jobs application process will soon die down, the backlash may only continue to grow. Considering how many people showed up today at…
