Every year, more than $40 billion is made off of the exploitation of children, women, and men for sex and labour around the world. Two million are exploited in the commercial sex trade globally every year and less than 1% of these victims are rescued. Here in Canada, we have already seen a number of human trafficking arrests made in the first few weeks of 2017:
– Thunder Bay Police charge two with human trafficking
– Late senator’s grandson admits to human trafficking
– Ont. man and boy charged with human trafficking after woman allegedly assaulted
In light of these heartbreaking statistics and reports, we are eager to share with you about a powerful new film aimed at bringing awareness to the world-wide issue of human trafficking. She Has a Name is based on a real-life event from 2008 and tells the story of two young victims forced into sex slavery and who face unimaginable circumstances…[Click here to read the full article].
On Jan 15th over 70 countries came together to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and reaffirm the viewpoint that a negotiated two-state solution is the only way to achieve enduring peace. Neither Israel or Palestine were present at the conference to determine their fate.
The summit concluded with a statement backed by all 70 countries present, calling on Israel and the Palestinians to restate their commitment to a “two-state solution” to peace and for both sides to refrain from unilateral actions which could interfere with peace talks.

Have you ever watched the news or looked around you in Canada and wondered the following:
“What can I do to make a difference on important moral issues in Canada?”
“How can I help pass a stronger Canada onto my children?”
“Where do I start when it comes to huge issues like human trafficking, abortion, assisted suicide, the national debt, etc.?”
“Does my effort really make a difference?…What is the MOST EFFECTIVE way to make a difference?”
“As a pastor or Christian leader, how can I encourage those in my sphere to make an impact?”

Israel has been in the international spotlight following the UN’s anti-Israel resolution in late December. Interestingly, the UN refers to the Temple Mount and Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, solely by their Islamic names in the resolution. It is also concerning that the U.N. General Assembly adopted 24 resolutions in 2016; 20 of which were anti-Israel resolutions. (The others were for North Korea, Syria, Iran and Russia.)
PARIS “PEACE” CONFERENCE

MEDIA STORM OVER LATE-TERM ABORTION
Fuel has been thrown on the abortion debate in Canada as news of a baby aborted at 35 weeks was reported this week.
Advocates on both sides of the debate exploded with shock; some horrified that a child capable of survival outside the womb could be targeted because of his/her special needs; and shockingly, some up in arms that such a late-term request could possibly merit delay and refusal from two Montreal hospitals…

Last week, MY Canada’s 16th delegation took to Parliament Hill to meet with MPs and Senators. The mission of the 21 young adults was to thank & honour them for their dedication and hard work, to pray with them, to share our hearts on a number of issues and ask them to advance Godly legislation for Canada. Some of the issues the team spoke to our leaders concerning included pornography, abortion, gendercide, assisted suicide, palliative care, First Nations issues, and the gender identity bill (also termed the “bathroom bill”).
We want to say a wholehearted THANK YOU to each person who sowed financially, prayed and encouraged the team! It made a huge difference. Here is the good report…[Click here to read the full article].

Freedom of speech, religion and conscience are continuously being challenged. With the passage of Bill C-14 and legalization of assisted suicide this year, one very important freedom has been largely overlooked: the freedom of conscience protection of medical professionals.
‘Safeguards’ protecting the freedom of conscience of doctors, nurses, and pharmacists who conscientiously object to assisted suicide are insufficient. We must stand up and speak out in defence of the freedom of medical professionals to refuse to participate.
Stephen Woodworth, recent MP and Director of the Democracy Defence Initiative, is leading the charge to stand for the protection of conscience rights for medical professionals by holding a rally on November 30th…[Click here to read the full article].
BILL C-16 PASSES THROUGH HOUSE OF COMMONS
Sadly, MPs voted to pass federal Bill C-16 this past Friday, bringing us closer to men being permitted in all female spaces in Canada and potentially forcing Canadians to use pronouns such as “Ze”, “Zir”, “Xe”, and “Xim”.
This bill has been rushed through the legislative process; After being introduced on May 17th, Bill C-16 passed easily through a vote in the House of Commons on October 18th and went on to be studied by the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights…[Click here to read the full article].
In just 10 days our next delegation will head to Parliament to impact our national leaders. This year’s team is vibrant and has already booked over 60 sit down meetings with MPs and Senators (we expect even more to be booked in the next 10 days)!
In these meetings the young adults will speak to our leaders about important issues like freedom of religion/conscience in Canada, first nations issues, parental rights, Canada’s relationship to Israel, assisted suicide, porn, abortion and more. (Scroll down to see pictures of meetings from previous delegations.)
We expect the team to have a great impact on our leaders as they ask them to stand for Biblical values and pray for them in their Parliamentary offices.
We are writing today because we need your help…[Click here to read the full article].
TWU WINS AGAINST BC LAW SOCIETY
Trinity Western University is celebrating a big win in British Columbia as the provincial Court of Appeals has upheld a previous Supreme Court decision to support the University.
As many of you know, TWU has been battling law societies in B.C., Ontario and Nova Scotia that refused to give accreditation to the school’s future law graduates because of the community covenant agreement that TWU students sign, which includes the pledge to reserve sexual intimacy for marriage between a man and woman.
Thus, this case has become as much about the defence of diversity, pluralism and freedom in Canada as it is about the school or its graduates…[Click here to read the full article].
This day is a powerful day.
It is the day we remember those who have given their lives in the past, and those who are giving their lives in the present, for our security and freedom.
Please join us in praying for our beloved war vets, soldiers and their families today.

HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY TO ELECT PRO-LIFE CPC PARTY LEADER
The Leader of a political party has immense influence over a number of factors, including the party’s platform, policy, and caucus, and personally approves each and every party election candidate.
The opportunity to elect a new leader to one of Canada’s primary federal parties only comes once every 12-15 years. Such an opportunity is coming to us in the Spring of 2017 when the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) will elect its new party leader!..[Click here to read the full article].
UNITED STATES ELECTIONS HAPPENING NOV. 8TH
On November 8th, the U.S. will be electing their next president, as well as the United States Congress, House of Representatives and Senate. This is a hugely significant event for our closest neighbours and will have tremendous impact on Canada and many other nations around the world.
In fact, many have said that these are the most important US elections ever.
Among other key matters, and perhaps most significantly, the next President of the United States will elect 3-4 new Supreme Court Justices…[Click here to read the full article].
WEDNESDAY’S VOTE ON BILL C-225:
It is with great disappointment that we report that Cassie and Molly’s Law was voted down in the House of Commons Wednesday night and Bill C-225 is now considered “dead”.
The final vote was 209 nays to 76 votes in support of sending the Bill to the committee stage to be studied and revised. The entire Liberal, NDP and Bloc parties voted against the bill, as did three Conservative Party members, including CPC leadership candidate Michael Chong…

“BATHROOM BILL” TO BE DEBATED THIS WEEK
The government has scheduled a second reading of Bill C-16 for Tuesday, October 18th. Introduced in May, Bill C-16 would add the terms ‘gender identity’ and ‘gender expression’ to the Canadian Human Rights Act and Criminal Code, and make it illegal to discriminate on the basis of these two categories.
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
This bill will put a large number of Canadians in danger. Males of any age will have the legal right to share the same bathrooms and change rooms used by our young daughters…
