Lack of courage on so-con issues leads to “unrest” at #CPC18

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

In addition to excluding the Rebel, we heard rumblings that social conservative voices were made to feel unwelcome at the Conservative Party convention in Halifax.


When Christian broadcaster, author and frequent guest of The Gunn Show, Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, dropped by Rebel’s hospitality suite, I took the opportunity to get her thoughts on how social conservatives inside the conference were feeling.

P.S. Watch all of The Rebel's footage from the 2018 CPC convention in Halifax HERE.

Yep. And Drive-By-Jimmy has polled each and every Canadian for those results. "

Ipsos regularly polls on the matter, and their results are pretty consistent indicating that their sample is decently representative. About 15% of Canadians identify as overtly pro-life.
“Look at abortion as an example. The lefties claim that the SCOC decided abortion should be unrestricted and that the “issue is settled”. No more discussion shall ever be allowed. But the problem is that is not what the SCOC said. That is the spin the lying left put on it.”

You can discuss it all you want… you could even try to pass restrictive legislation, and you are correct in that there is nothing about R vs Morgentaler that prevents legislation.

What the ruling DOES say, is that if they DO try to introduce legislation, a woman cannot be forced to bear a pregnancy against her will, and cannot be prosecuted for violating any regulation that tries to make her do that. Her right to self-determination (“security of person”) is greater than the state’s right to regulate it, and that feeds into a separate ruling ( Tremblay v Daigle) which states that the fetus is not legally a person so a security of person argument cannot be argued on its behalf – that case was predicated on a father trying to do just that to get a mother to bear a pregnancy against her will.

There’s a lesson here, I think, to pay attention to what you read because the devil’s in the details. Correct, Morgentaler doesn’t prevent legislation. What it does do, is prevent enforcement of any law you may try to impose, so it’s entirely a futile effort.

Yep.

Conservatives are already a smaller demographic in Canada, but social conservatives are a nothing demographic when you consider all of Canada and they are making the mistake of thinking that they are large and powerful voice.

That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Jimmy, the pendulum swings. Like the IPCC fake climate change the debate is not settled. This transgender crap taught schools needs discussion.

Here’s the deal, Philip. Lefties love to discuss issue until they perceive they have won. Then the cry is, “that’s been settled.” But it is never settled before that moment even if the the dominant position has been around for 10,000 years.

Look at abortion as an example. The lefties claim that the SCOC decided abortion should be unrestricted and that the “issue is settled”. No more discussion shall ever be allowed. But the problem is that is not what the SCOC said. That is the spin the lying left put on it.

Oh, Damn!! I forgot all about Andrew Stephenson. He/she/it/zer/zeb/zip/zabelbabin is always good for a laugh too. Sorry about that, Andrew. I didn’t mean to slight you. Your contribution to the hilarity factor on this site has been immeasurable. You keep doing what you’re doing as well. We all need the laugh.

SoCons still don’t seem to understand that although they’re very vocal, they’re not particularly numerous. Not an election winning platform.

I think the SoCons know that though, given the support for Bernier, who is a complete social liberal.

The teachers’ Federation works for the gov’t, who works for the U.N., Not for our children’s sake. SO glad Dougiee is keeping that promise to cease the anti-family, anti-morals, anti-Christian sex ed curriculum! To the troll, shut up. That curriculum of Wynne’s was designed by her and a convicted pedophile/child pornographer. Someone with a last name of Levine. As far as Mrs. Tyler Thompson and the CPC18 letdown and anger at spineless motions. I agree with her. I’m afraid Mr. Sheer is a nice fella but perhaps a globalist, dairy cartel controlled wolf in sheep clothing. Time to wake up Canada! Perhaps a better choice will emerge. Right now the CPC has lost my vote and I’m a member. I’m praying daily for help for our country.

It’s hard to keep track of all the trolls. Amy Lynn has been so dominant lately that I hadn’t even noticed that Jimmy Reece was posting. Sorry to have over-looked you Jimmy. I’ll pay closer attention from now on. Please keep doing what you’re doing. I love it. It’s hilarious.

Please refrain from feeding the trolls as it disrupts the narrative of the thread… In that respect the trolls win and ideas by the regular people on here are never exchanged.

I can smell the bullshit from here………….it smells like the usual lefty troll.

Jimmy Reece parents can teach their kids more if they wish, no one is stopping them.

Jimmy Reece parents were against the perverted sex ed. And teachers are union sheep.

You have my support, Laura-Lynn.

Political courage… Quite the contradiction in terms… If politicians need to be reminded of what courage is digg up the graves of the men and women who are called to fight on behalf of Canada against tyranny in two world wars and a host of other smaller conflicts including Korea Vietnam Grenada and tours all through the middle east . Brave men and women gave their lives so that these “pseudo-Warriors” could make the best of what people died for .!!
