11.16.2017 – Nov. 16th, 2017 – Thank you!! An Update on MYC’s Parliamentary Delegation and Special Thanks For Your Support

Last week, MY Canada’s 17th delegation took to Parliament Hill in the nation’s capital to meet with Canadian MPs and Senators. Our mission was to thank and honour them for their hard work on behalf of Canadians, to share our hearts on a number of issues, and to ask them to work to advance godly legislation in the nation.

Some of the issues the team spoke to our leaders about this year include pornography, gender-selective abortion, informed consent for women considering abortion, the legalization of marijuana, government spending & national debt, freedom of conscience, religion and speech, and more.

In total, the team of 16 young adults had 57 sit-down meetings with Parliamentarians and hosted 25+ Members of Parliament plus staff at our parliamentary reception. It was a busy and impactful week!…[Click here to read the full article].

11.11.2017 – Nov. 11th, 2017 – Victory! Religious Freedom Protected in Canada // Section 176 of the Criminal Code Preserved

MY Canada’s National Director, Faytene Grasseschi, visited the Honourable Rob Nicholson’s office in Ottawa on Tuesday, November 7th to talk about Bill C-51 and its implications for religious leaders and gatherings if section 176 was removed from the Criminal Code, as proposed in Bill C-51.

Following this informative meeting, we sent out an urgent alert requesting prayer for the Committee of Justice and Human Rights meeting taking place on Wednesday afternoon. Committee members would be making decisions about Bill C-51, particularly in regards to clause 14 as it deals with section 176 of the Criminal Code: whether to keep explicit protections for religious leaders and gatherings currently found in the Criminal Code…[Click here to read the full article].

11.08.2017 – Nov. 8th, 2017 – URGENT ALERT: Committee Meeting on Bill C-51 (Section 176) Happening Today! Please Pray.

The MY Canada young adult delegation is on Parliament Hill this week with a full schedule of meetings with MPs and Senators, asking them to stand for godly values. Thank you for praying & we are excited to send you a report on everything that is happening!

We just heard in one of our meetings that section 176 of Bill C-51 which deals with the removal of protections of religious leaders and gatherings is to be discussed in committee today. A number of MPs expressed hope that this part of the proposed legislation could be dropped at this afternoon’s meeting, leaving section 176 of the Criminal Code in tact and the religious protections it embodies in place.

This is incredibly hopeful news!…[Click here to read the full article].

10.27.2017 – Oct. 27th, 2017 – Happy International Religious Freedom Day!

Today, MY Canada and millions across Canada and the World recognize International Religious Freedom Day.

We thank God for the religious freedom we enjoy here in Canada. We also recognize that there is much work to be done to protect religious freedom here at home and to fight for it around the world.

Please join us in e-mailing Members of Parliament today and asking them to continue to fight for religious freedom in Canada and abroad.

In just 3 days our next national delegation will go to Parliament to meet with 65+ of our Parliamentarians to ask them to stand for Godly values in Canada. We need your help.

10.26.2017 – Oct. 26th, 2017 – Anti-Free Speech Ontario Bill 163 Passes // Bans Sidewalk Counselling Outside of Abortion Clinics

It was a sad day for freedom of speech, expression and assembly in Ontario yesterday with the passing of ON Bill 163.

Bill 163, which was fast-tracked through the legislature, creates so-called “safe zones” of 50-150 metres around the province’s 8 abortion clinics and the homes of abortionists and clinic staff. Peaceful pro-life protesting and counselling women against abortion will now be banned within these areas.

The Bill was put forward by Liberal ON Attorney General Yasir Naqvi, but it was the Ontario Conservatives who unsuccessfully proposed passing the bill immediately after it was introduced with no debate or committee hearings. The bill received all-party support at third vote yesterday, October 26th…[Click here to read the full article].

In these meetings the young adults will speak to our leaders about important issues like freedom of religion/conscience in Canada, religious discrimination in the nation, Canada’s relationship to Israel, pornography, abortion, the legalization of marijuana, 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.

“Islamophobia motion” M-103 is still in the committee stage and continues to be studied in the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage.

In meetings last month, motion sponsor MP Iqra Khalid kept her statements broad and indicated that her motion was intended to cover a study on religious discrimination in general. Another witness, however, introduced some concerning considerations such as potential censorship of the media and the prosecution of individuals when “things go too far” in engaging in Islamophobia.

10.02.2017 – Oct. 2nd, 2017 – Time-Sensitive Call to Action // We Need Your Help to #StandwithRachael

Last week we updated you on proceedings in the Commons Committee on the Status of Women (FEWO) when Liberal committee members walked out of the meeting in protest of a pro-life MP – Rachael Harder – being named Chair.

MP Rachael Harder is a strong young woman in politics with a promising career ahead of her. She is also a woman of faith who is pro-life. Because of her pro-life beliefs, Ms. Harder is being held back from this incredible career opportunity for which she is an excellent candidate.

MYC National Director, Faytene Grasseschi, Responds:

Our National Director, like so many of us, was shocked by last week’s proceedings and took to Facebook Live to share her thoughts on the protest…[Click here to read the full article].

Social media and news outlets have been buzzing following Tuesday’s proceedings in the Commons Committee on the Status of Women, one of the few committees for which the Official Opposition appoints the Chair.

When Andrew Scheer nominated MP Rachael Harder – the CPC’s Shadow Minister on the Status of Women – to the position, the Liberal MP committee members walked out of the meeting and vowed not to return until an alternate Chair was named.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he supports the Liberal MPs’ decision to walk out of the meeting, while Andrew Scheer defends his position to nominate Rachael Harder…[Click here to read the full article].

Some national e-mail communications are harder for us to write than others. This is one of those harder ones.

As many of you will already know, early this week Canada said good-bye to one of it’s greatest leaders, David Mainse. Not only was he a remarkable general of the faith for our nation, but he was also one of our dearest friends and spiritual fathers.

Though he has only been gone a few days, we already miss him so much.

David Mainse was a constant encouragement to us, both personally and publicly. He attended, spoke at and lead prayer at many of TheCRYs over the years. He also graciously interviewed us many times on 100 Huntley St – both to help us mobilize the nation in prayer and to encourage our activism work at Parliament…[Click here to read the full article].

Parliamentarians are back in Ottawa this week as fall session resumed for Members of Parliament on Monday (Sept. 18th) and for Senators today (Sept. 19th).

This is an exciting time of year and a critical time for us to engage our Members of Parliament regarding some very key bills and issues that will be discussed, studied and voted on this fall.

These are a few of the current bills and issues we are tracking and – most importantly – what you can do about them:

Bill C-51: The government’s Bill C-51 aims to “clean up” the Criminal Code by removing legislation that is viewed as obsolete or redundant. Included in the proposed clean up is the removal of Section 176 which essentially removes the only provision in the CC that directly protects the rights of individuals to freely practice their religion…[Click here to read the full article].

09.13.2017 – Sept. 13th, 2017 – Victory for Mary Wagner! No Additional Jail Time for the Pro-Life Hero

MY Canada celebrates the news that pro-life hero Mary Wagner has walked free after her September 12th sentencing hearing.

Mary has spent more than 5 years in prison altogether for her crime of trying to persuade women to choose life for their pre-born babies. Her most recent arrest happened December 12th, 2016 at the Bloor West Village Women’s Clinic.

The Crown had asked for 18 months jail time after she was found guilty of one count of mischief and two counts of breach of probation last month. Ultimately, Justice Rick Libman sentenced Mary to 30 months of probation and 50 hours of community service – but no more jail time!…[Click here to read the full article].

Pro-life advocate Mary Wagner has spent 5 years in jail and is facing up to 18 months more for her efforts to counsel women to choose life for their pre-born babies.

Ms. Wagner was arrested at the Bloor West Village Women’s Clinic on December 12th, 2016. Earlier this month, Justice Eric N. Libman found Ms. Wagner guilty of mischief and breach of probation.

Sentencing will take place on September 12th but in the meantime, Justice Libman has said he would accept character references to take into consideration in his decision.

08.21.2017 – Aug. 21st, 2017 – New StatsCan Report: Changes to the Traditional Family in Canada

The typical household in Canada is changing.

Statistics Canada recently released a new series of data showing that the typical Canadian household no longer consists of a traditional family made up of one mother and father and their children.

Instead, the most common type of household now consists of a single person living alone (28.2 percent of all households). The data also shows the lowest level of households with children on record. The number of families with common-law and same-sex partnerships also showed an increase.

Good news from the report is that married couples still make up the majority of couples in 2016. Click here to read the newly-released Statistics Canada report…[Click here to read the full article].

08.18.2017 – Aug. 18th, 2017 – Wave of Asylum Seekers Landing in Quebec this Summer // How Should We Respond?

As most of you already know, a wave of asylum seekers have jumped the Canadian border from the U.S. in recent weeks without passing through an official border crossing and have landed in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, QC.

It is estimated that close to 7,000 individuals have crossed into Quebec in the last 6 weeks alone, most of whom are originally from Haiti. Haitians in particular are crossing in significant numbers in response to the announcement that their Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in the U.S. is set to expire in January 2018.

According to the “Safe Third-Country Agreement” if someone is making an asylum claim in the U.S., they cannot make the same claim in Canada. In spite of this, a number of individuals and families have taken to travelling to the U.S.-Canada border by taxi and walking over on foot…[Click here to read the full article].

Canadian Pastor Hyeon Soo Lim has been released from a North Korean labour camp more than two and a half years after being imprisoned, despite being sentenced to a life of hard labour. The news reached Canada and Pastor Lim’s Mississauga, Ontario church early Wednesday morning.

Pastor Lim was released on “sick bail,” a humanitarian act by North Korean government, and is reportedly in poor health and needing medication to treat high blood pressure.

We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who prayed with us for Pastor Lim’s release and who signed and shared the petition. This is a tremendous answer to prayer.

BREAKTHROUGH: Freedom of Abortion Information:
We are thrilled to share that our friends at ARPA Canada along with pro-life blogger Patricia Maloney have been successful in their legal battle against the Government of Ontario over the freedom of access to abortion information in the province.

Previously, abortion information and statistics had been exempted from the Freedom of Information Act. This meant that abortion providers were not required to report their statistics and therefore the information was not available to the public…[Click here to read the full article].

07.19.2017 – July 19th, 2017 – The Push Towards Legalizing Marijuana In Canada – C-45

As promised during the 2015 election campaign, the Liberal government introduced a bill to legalize marijuana in Canada with Bill C-45, the “Cannabis Act.” Under Bill C-45, Canada would be the first G7 country to legalize cannabis for recreational use nation-wide.

A national system for marijuana regulation is expected to be put in place no later than July 1st, 2018. However, this bill is already moving quickly through the House of Commons and passed second reading vote on June 8th with 200 votes in support and 76 votes against.

07.12.2017 – July 12th, 2017 – Bill C-51 and How it Could Affect Church Services and Religious Gatherings

Last month, Minister of Justice Jody Wilson-Raybould tabled bill C-51, a bill which would have an impact on the religious freedom of Christians and other groups in Canada.

One positive focus of the bill is to update Canada’s sexual assault laws and offer greater protection for alleged sexual assault victims. But the bill also seeks to remove a number of sections of the Criminal Code that are viewed as obsolete or redundant, often referred to as “zombie laws.”

The area of concern is Clause 25 of Bill C-51 which proposes to remove a section of the Criminal Code that offers protection from any individual who:…[Click here to read the full article].

The Senate passed transgender Bill C-16 on June 15th with a vote of 67 in support and 11 opposed. The bill now only needs royal assent in the House of Commons before “gender identity” and “gender expression” officially become part of the Human Rights and Criminal Codes.

We know that many of you have been praying and contacting Members of Parliament and Senators regarding this bill. We sincerely thank you and want you to know that your prayers, phone calls and e-mails did make a difference.

Thanking Those who Stood for Righteousness
There are a few key players who have stood bravely against this bill since its introduction and who have faced significant backlash through e-mail and social media because of it. These include Senator Don Plett, who in many ways led the charge against the bill in the Senate, and UofT Professor Jordan Peterson…[Click here to read the full article].

06.15.2017 – June 15th, 2017 – Final Report on Pornography Motion M-47 & Next Steps We Can Take

The Standing Committee on Health has tabled their report based on motion M-47, the study of the harmful effects of violent sexually-explicit material.

There were strong indications that the report would be an excellent starting point on how to address the problem of pornography in Canada. However, in response to the report, motion sponsor MP Arnold Viersen has expressed disappointment that:

▪ Only two paragraphs of the report are devoted to looking at the impact of violent pornography on public health.
▪ The report is silent on academic research that violent and degrading pornography contributes to rape culture, objectifies women and subjects them to violent acts, desensitizes viewers to violence against women, is used to groom children for sexual abuse, etc…[Click here to read the full article].

We have just heard that Bill C-16 is scheduled for third vote in the Senate tomorrow, June 15th. If the bill passes, it will go on to receive royal assent and become law in Canada, allowing biological males into women’s washrooms, making it discrimination to speak out against the transgender lifestyle, and even potentially forcing Canadians to use new, made-up pronouns when speaking to or about individuals who identify as “transgender”.

Here is what we can do in these final hours before the vote:

The Standing Committee on Health plans to table a report within the next few days based on the many presentations it has heard and the evidence it has found during its study on the public health effects of violent pornography.

The witnesses, including survivors, experts and representatives from women’s shelters, have presented overwhelming evidence on the negative impact of pornography including:

MP Marilyn Gladu took to Facebook Live earlier this week to share the exciting news that her private members’ bill C-277 was unanimously supported in the House of Commons. The bill now moves to the Senate for debate and voting.

Bill C-277, “an act providing for the development of a framework on palliative care in Canada,” calls on the ministry of health to work with palliative care professionals and provincial leaders in health to implement nation-wide palliative care standards. Especially now that assisted suicide is legal in Canada, Canadians deserve real choice and the option of choosing life when it comes to end-of-life care.

On May 18th, transgender “Bathroom Bill” C-16 passed the Senate committee stage following two weeks of hearings without any amendments or observations.

Bill C-16 will now face third and final vote in the Senate before it could potentially receive royal assent to become part of Canadian law.

This legislation 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, essentially allowing biological males the legal right to access girls’ washrooms/change rooms and forcing the use of a wide range of made-up pronouns such as “ze”, “zhe,” and “zir” for transgender individuals…[Click here to read the full article].

This event draws tens of thousands of people to our nation’s capital of Ottawa each year to be a public witness for life and to call on our government to implement legislation that protects the pre-born in Canada.

04.28.2017 – Apr. 28th, 2017 – New Report Proves Gender-Selective Abortions in Canada. Find out how You can Help Protect Baby Girls.

This week, another medical study proving that gendercide is happening in Canada was released.

Gendercide is the systematic practice of using sex-selective abortion to kill female babies in the womb simply because they are girls.

This week’s study provides more evidence of sex-selective abortions in Canada and also explains a few specific patterns that can be observed:

▪ The gender imbalance is most apparent when looking at children born to Indo-Canadian women.
▪ The strongest representation of women are those whose mother tongue is Punjabi.
▪ The imbalance persists no matter how long the women from India have lived in Canada…[Click here to read the full article].

04.13.2017 – Apr. 13th, 2017 – A Tragic Reminder: Still No Legal Protection for Canada’s Youngest Victims of Crime

The debate over pre-born victims of crime in Canada has tragically come to the forefront once again as the nation learned of the murder of 27-year-old Arianna Goberdhan and her pre-born baby in Pickering, Ontario this past weekend.

According to current Canadian law, a homicide has only been committed against a child if the child dies after becoming a human being; And the definition of when a child becomes human is only after he or she has fully proceeded from the body of its mother.

This means that although Arianna’s husband is facing charges for her death, he will not face charges for the death of his baby – just hours or days away from delivery – for which he is just as responsible.

This tragic news has once again forced Canadians to re-examine the obvious gap in Canadian law in addressing and defending pre-born victims of crime…[Click here to read the full article].

04.11.2017 – Apr. 11th, 2017 – Special Ontario Alert: Help Support the Freedom of Conscience of Healthcare Professionals to Refrain from Participating in Assisted Suicide

As of June 2016 assisted suicide became legal in Canada and provinces are now required to create provincial laws to reflect the new federal legislation, Bill C-16.

Ontario has put forward its proposal in the form of Bill 84. Unlike other provinces however, Ontario’s bill does not include conscience protection for physicians and medical professionals.

The single regulator of the medical profession in Ontario, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), is forcing doctors to ignore their conscience or to act in violation of it in their new policy on doctor conscience rights. Bill 84 does nothing to appropriately respond to the CSPO policy that doctors must provide effective referrals for assisted suicide if they refuse to perform the ’service’ themselves…[Click here to read the full article].

Prior to the motion’s first hour of debate last month, MP David Anderson put forward an opposition motion nearly identical to M-103. However, while M-103 mentions only the religion of Islam by name, Anderson’s motion called for the House to “condemn all forms of systemic racism, religious intolerance, and discrimination of Muslims, Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Hindus, and other religious communities.” Anderson also removed the undefined term “Islamophobia” from Khalid’s M-103[Click here to read the full article].

The next few days are critical as the Canadian government makes final decisions regarding the international abortion fund.

On March 2nd – this Thursday – Ministers and representatives from Canada will gather with other nations in Belgium to move forward on the international abortion fund. The “She Decides” Conference was planned within days of President Trump’s decision to ban US foreign aid and taxpayer money from going toward abortion internationally.

Through taxes, Canadians who are conscientiously or morally opposed to abortion already fund 100,000 annual abortions taking place within Canada and send millions of dollars towards funding abortion internationally. Canada’s participation in this fund will therefore be in addition to all this…[Click here to read the full article].

Just yesterday we sent an e-mail to you regarding the plight of the Yazidi people and featured an interview our director, Faytene Grasseschi, had just filmed with MP Michelle Rempel regarding the crisis.

In that interview Michelle explained to us that though the government had promised to prioritize these vulnerable refugees that they had not yet given any indication that a single Yazidi had made it to Canada.

BREAKING NEWS GOOD REPORT!

Last fall the government passed a motion prioritizing getting refugees from this very vulnerable minority group to Canada. At that time the government gave themselves a 4 month window. This window ends this week and as far as we know no government sponsored refugees of the Yazidi people have yet come to Canada.

02.13.2017 – Feb. 13th, 2017 – Time-Sensitive Call to Action & Update // Canada Moves Towards Putting MORE Money Towards Abortion

We recently shared about Canada’s consideration of a partnership to invest millions MORE in international abortion. This was a response to President Trump’s ban on funding foreign abortions.

To be clear, Canadians who are conscientiously opposed to abortion are already forced to participate in it through our taxes; over 100,000 annual tax-funded abortions within Canada and millions of dollars already going towards funding abortions internationally. The funding in question now would be in addition to all this.

According to reports, Canada may very well be planning to move ahead with being part of this initiative.

We can still change this through our prayers and action…[Click here to read the full article].

02.09.2017 – Feb. 9th, 2017 – Motion On Islamophobia Set For Vote Next Week

Members of Parliament are set to vote on an “Islamophobia” motion next week at a time when emotions are high following the United States immigration ‘pause’ and the horrific Quebec mosque shooting that tragically left 6 Canadians killed.

Liberal MP Iqra Khalid’s Motion M-103 is called “Systemic Racism and Religious Discrimination” but it does not refer to discrimination towards all religions; only towards Islam. It calls on the Heritage Committee to study how to eliminate “Islamophobia” and could result in recommended laws to achieve this goal.

M-103 seeks additional protection for Muslims and therefore favours one religion above all others. It could prepare the way for the criminalization of “Islamophobia” and challenge rational criticism of an entire religion…[Click here to read the full article].

Yazidi women and girls have been increasingly raped, traded and sold as sex slaves amongst ISIS fighters in recent years. They are Iraq’s (and amongst the world’s) most persecuted minority group.

Parliament voted unanimously last October in support of MP Michelle Rempel’s motion to acknowledge this genocide against the Yazidi people and to welcome Yazidi women and children to safety in Canada within 120 days. The government would not commit to a specific number of Yazidis to be welcomed but government officials hinted in November that they would only target 50 women and girls for safe asylum, a move that CPC interim-leader Rona Ambrose called “a token effort”.

Why Pray 150?
Canada is turning 150 on July 1, 2017. Biblically every 50th year is a jubilee – a time for freedom and deliverance. Before entering the promised land the people of God were exhorted to consecrate (prepare) themselves for this important time of shift and inheritance. In the same way we believe that the lead up to Canada’s 150th birthday is an important time for us to prepare spiritually as a nation for all the Lord wants to do in the next season of our national history. One of the primary ways we can prepare is through prayer and fasting…[Click here to read the full article].

Last week, President Trump signed an executive order to stop US funding of international abortions. We were grateful for this action because it will save lives.

Unfortunately in response to President Trump’s action our own Prime Minister is taking the exact opposite tone and considering beefing up Canada’s funding of international abortion. Click here to read more.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Cabinet Ministers have indicated they are strongly considering joining forces with Denmark and 15-20 other countries in establishing a $600 million fund to cover abortions no longer funded by the US.

Canadians who conscientiously object to the killing of the unborn are already forced to participate abortion against their will because of the more than 100,000 tax funded abortions which take place in Canada every year…[Click here to read full article].

These are exciting times on the life front. Within the past week, President Trump signed an executive order banning government funding of foreign abortions and the House of Representatives voted to ban taxpayer funding of abortion.

January 25th, 2017

It is now legal for Canadian medical practitioners to help patients die by assisted suicide even though palliative care is not yet an available option for all Canadians facing terminal illness. If assisted suicide is available for Canadians then palliative care simply must be as well. It should have been made available first!

There are only about 200 hospices across Canada and only 16-33% of Canadians who die currently have access to hospice, palliative and end-of-life care services. (More info).

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.

josiahthankyou
THANK YOU!
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].

11.28.2016 – Nov. 28th, 2016 – Upcoming Events & Important Dates Across Canada

nov-30-rally

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.

twuupdateTWU 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].

In a recent mission to identify Iraq’s most vulnerable and persecuted individuals, a coalition including Rev. Majed El Shafie of OFWI and MPs Rachael Harder & Hon.
