08.18.2016 – August 18th, 2016 – BIG Changes Coming to Canada’s Electoral Process? Help Us Call on Government to Give All Canadians a Say with a Referendum

 

Electoral ReformELECTORAL REFORM COMING TO CANADA

As part of his election campaign, Justin Trudeau pledged that 2015 would be Canada’s last federal election under the first-past-the-post (FPTP) system.

Throughout the summer months, an all-party Special Committee on Electoral Reform (ERRE) has been busy meeting to determine how Canadians will elect their government; Examining the various types of voting systems, considering the addition of online and/or mandatory voting, hearing and questioning witnesses, welcoming input from the public and discussing the idea of lowering the voting age to 16.

Many options are being explored. However, the Liberal government refuses to put this to a referendum, despite the fact that a referendum is the most robust, inclusive consultation process at our disposal….[Click here to read the full article].

08.08.2016 – August 8th, 2016 – TWU Law School Update: Celebrating A Big Victory in Nova Scotia, and the Battle for Freedom of Religion Continues in Ontario and BC

TWUUpdateTrinity Western University continues to contend for its constitutional freedoms of association, conscience, religion and expression currently being challenged by law societies in British Columbia, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. Prior to this year, Appeals Courts ruled in favour of TWU in B.C. and Nova Scotia, and against TWU in Ontario. These decisions were recently appealed in each province and it seems the battle is headed to the Supreme Court in the near future.

TWU’S ONTARIO DEFEAT
The Ontario Court of Appeals ruled on June 29th that the province’s law society was reasonable in their decision to withhold accreditation from TWU students. The court acknowledged that TWU’s freedom of religion WAS infringed upon but ruled that it was justified! Not only is this disappointing but also deeply concerning as it demonstrates that our Chartered freedom of religion has become secondary to the demands of the LGBTQ community in Ontario….[Click here to read the full article].

Trinity Western University (TWU) is continuing to struggle for the right to have its proposed law school recognized and future graduates permitted to practice law in all provinces.

Testimonies were presented in BC and Ontario Courts of Appeals this week in attempt to determine whether the law societies have infringed upon the religious freedom of the Christian university by refusing to recognize credentials simply because of the religious beliefs of the school and the students who go there.

TWU requires that all staff and students sign a Community Covenant Agreement which includes the understanding of sexual intimacy being reserved for marriage between one man and one woman. Governing law societies in BC, Nova Scotia and Ontario have refused to grant potential law graduates of TWU the accreditation required to practice law in the provinces, claiming that the university promotes discrimination against the LGBT community…[Click here to read the full article].

Senate4SUPREME COURT’S CARTER RULING: LAW OF THE LAND

Parliament has missed the Supreme Court’s deadline and assisted suicide officially became legal throughout Canada on Tuesday, June 7th. Since Bill C-14 is still in the Senate after being passed in the House of Commons, the Supreme Court’s ruling in Carter stands. It is now up to the provinces to determine how this ruling will be applied.

BILL C-14 IN THE SENATE:
The Senate’s Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee has chosen to forgo the usual procedure of recommending amendments to the Senate. This means that all Senators will be welcome to propose amendments.

By all accounts, it appears the bill could be put to a Senate vote by the end of this week at the earliest…[Click here to read the full article].

The bill now faces study, potential amendments, and votes in the Senate, and if amended will return again to the House for voting.

This is very encouraging!!

05.18.2016 – May 18th, 2016 – Update: The Senate Could Be the Game Changer for Assisted Suicide & Join Us At Parliament June 1st for Important Rally

SenateGameChangerCTV News reported yesterday that Senators are saying that they will NOT pass the assisted suicide legislation (C-14) by the June 6th deadline. This could be great news.

There will NOT be a legislative void:
If the bill is not passed by the June 6th deadline, it could signal that the Senate may be the game changer on this issue. A slower process means that more time will be given to look at the legislation critically and allow for important debate.

Some have raised the concern that if C-14 is not passed by June 6th it will leave a legislative void and mean “anything goes” for assisted suicide in Canada. This is not true. If Bill C-14 does not pass by June 6th then the Supreme Court ruling will stand which only allows assisted suicide for “consenting adults with unbearable pain”. These parameters are actually more restrictive than C-14…[Click here to read the full article].

05.16.2016 – May 16th, 2016 – Report on a Successful March for Life and Update on Cassie and Molly’s Law Following First Hour of Debate in House of Commons

MarchforLife2016Last Thursday, the 19th annual March for Life took place in Ottawa. The event was hugely successful with an estimated 22,000 people in attendance, including a number of Members of Parliament, Senators and their families.

The primary focus was on the lack of any laws surrounding abortion in Canada with an added focus on the upcoming legislation on assisted suicide. Participants were also made aware of recent news that Canada will soon once again be funding abortions in developing countries.

This year’s overwhelming message, however, was one of encouragement for Canada’s pro-life movement as a whole to become even more politically active in the fight for the protection of our youngest, most vulnerable citizens and of the sick and elderly most at risk because of legalized assisted suicide…[Click here to read the full article].

05.11.2016 – May 11th, 2016 – Update on Assisted Suicide and Call for Continued Prayer and Fasting to See C-14 Defeated

rallyFirstly, we want to say a sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the three-day fast May 7-9th to pray for the defeat of the assisted suicide bill (C-14). As we pray and fast we are filling the bowls of intercession in heaven on this issue and believe that God’s is hearing.

UPDATE ON THE FINAL READING VOTE:
Though our Parliamentary sources expected the vote to potentially take place yesterday, May 10th, the final debate and vote has not yet happened. The bill is still in committee and expected to return to the floor of the House of Commons any day for this final vote.

The good news about this is that it gives us more time to pray, get the word out to our friends and family about the bill & to contact our MPs. Please keep praying, sharing and contacting our leaders. If C-14 passes the House of Commons, it will be debated and voted on in the Senate within the coming days/weeks.

All this means: we need to keep at it!… [Click here to read the full article].

04.22.2016 – Apr. 22nd, 2016 – Assisted Suicide Campaign Making an Impact (Please Join In), Gendercide Exposed In Canada & Apply to Meet with Alberta’s Government Leaders with MYC

The Canadian Medical Association Journal recently published two heartbreaking studies that prove gendercide is occurring in Canada as there is a higher than normal ratio of male to female babies being born. The gender imbalance increases significantly if the family already has existing female children. Basically, the study proves that some families abort baby girls until they have their preferred son.

The report states that this most often occurs among women who were born in India and who may have been taught culturally to consider baby girls as having less value than baby boys. It is wonderful that there are laws preventing women from having gender-selection abortions in India. However, this law DOES NOT EXIST in Canada…[Click here to read the full article].

04.14.2016 – Apr. 14th, 2016 – Breaking News: Assisted Suicide Bill Tabled Today – The Good News, The Bad News & An Important Call to Action

AssistedSuicideUpdateEarlier today the Federal Government tabled Bill C-14 the much anticipated legislation on physician assisted suicide.

The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada summarized the bill in this way, “The legislation would allow euthanasia and assisted suicide for persons who are 18 years or older, with a serious and incurable illness, disease or disability, in an advanced state of irreversible decline and for whom death is reasonably foreseeable.”

There is good news and bad news in this.

THE GOOD NEWS:

The good news is that the legislation did not apply some of the controversial recommendations of the Parliamentary committee such as access to assisted suicide for mature minors. Thank you to all of you who signed up to send postcards and wrote, called or visited your MPs regarding this issue. It is clear your efforts made a difference here….[Click here to read the full article].
