Last month, we told you the news that no mainstream media had covered:
That the Liberal government was now forcing any Canadian company that wanted to participate in the government’s summer jobs program to swear a moral statement, saying they believed in the Liberal Party’s interpretation of social and religious values.
In other words:
Do you agree with Trudeau on moral questions?
That’s illegal, by the way. It's discrimination based on religion, according to the first right listed in our Charter. The government can’t make you say anything you don’t want to say.
But tonight I'll read you what the Canadian government website says now, regarding "Funding: Canada Summer Jobs – Eligibility,” including:
"To be eligible, the core mandate of the organization must respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (Charter) as well as other rights. These include reproductive rights..."
In the first place, the words "reproductive rights" aren’t in the Charter.
Furthermore, no-one has to “respect” any ideology; we just have to obey the law. And the Charter is a law that applies only to the government, not to citizens.
But of course, “reproductive rights” is a euphemism — abortion is the opposite of reproduction. That's what they’re trying to say here: every organization and person in the country has to say they "respect" abortions.
Imagine if Harper had required every Canadian to pledge support for criminal justice reform. Or if Trump demanded every American pledge support for the Second Amendment.
It’s unthinkable to compel someone to stand up and say such a thing.
Unthinkable, except in our increasingly unfree country...
NEXT: Our friend, lawyer John Carpay from the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, comes on to talk about the Centre's latest case:
That of a Chilliwack school trustee being taken to a human rights commission by CUPE, for criticizing BC's "Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity" curriculum.
THEN: After the Trump administration partially reduced funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), the Middle East Forum said it would donate $1 million to the controversial agency — but on one condition.
Dr. Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum joins me to explain:
This donation, you see, requires UNRWA to end the automatic registering in perpetuity of new "Palestinian" "refugees."
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
