We told you about this bizarre new requirement to get a summer jobs grant in Canada.
Basically, this grant program is a subsidy for small companies, or non-profits, to hire young people for the summer.
But there's a pecking order. Employers already had to say what race job candidates are, or what languages they speak.
And then, as we reported, the Trudeau Liberals added that companies and organizations had to swear they agree with Trudeau on moral issues, especially on "reproductive rights" —meaning abortion.
Our docile national media doesn’t much mind, but some religious leaders do. Catholic bishops across Canada are instructing their followers not to sign the attestation.
So this week, the Liberals put out what they call a "clarification" on the subject. Tonight I'll walk you through it, as they torture words like "mandate" and "respect" in weird ways.
This "clarification" was obviously written by people who have never a.) gone to a church or b.) run a company.
In other words, Liberals.
If I were a religious summer camp, or any other organization, I’d say: don’t take the money. The time it takes you to fill out all the forms, the invasiveness of it all — use that time to run your actual business and be free.
There are other things in life besides money. Freedom is important, and so is the rule of law, and limited government. They’re at risk.
I care — and I hope you do too.
NEXT: "It's like Trudeau ranks pro-lifers as worse than jihadists":
That's Edmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter's take on this issue, and tonight he joins me to talk about whether or not the prime minister's attitude will backfire on the Liberals.
THEN: New Brunswick PC MLA Brian Macdonald comes on to talk about the Nova Scotia fracking ban, which is costing his province dearly in terms of jobs and revenue.
