LATIMER JURY-TAMPERING TRIAL CONTINUES

BATTLEFORD, Sask., May 13 (LSN) – Randy Kirkham, the crown prosecutor in the original Robert Latimer trial, testified in his own defence in court yesterday. He said he did not intend that police should question potential jurors directly on relevant issues, but merely to ensure unbiased selections, as is common practice in jury selection. Kirkham, who is suspected of stacking the jury against Latimer, also told the court that he was alarmed to find out that one RCMP officer had questioned jurors using a set of questions intended for police reports only.  Kirkham said he did know of three potential […]

MANITOBA TEEN PREGNANCY STRATEGY QUESTIONED

WINNIPEG, May 13 (LSN) – Manitoba Family Services Minister Bonnie Mitchelson announced the provincial government will spend $370,000 over the next three years in an effort to reduce teen pregnancies.

Further, one might infer from the ministry “fact sheet” on the plan […]

NGO’S SHOWN TO BE EXTREMIST ANTI-FAMILY ZEALOTS

GENEVA, May 12 (LSN) – A report released Friday by the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (CAFHRI) indicates many of the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which collaborate with the United Nations hold views which most people would consider extremist and anti-family.  CAFHRI quoted several feminist speakers meeting in conjunction with the 54th Session of the UN Commission on Human Rights to illustrate the point. Valsa Verghese of Change International said that within the family, a “woman’s freedom and dignity is eroded on a daily basis.” Miriam Outara from Anti-Slavery International argued that “one of the greatest violations of women’s rights […]

OTTAWA, May 12 (LSN) – Statistics from the Ottawa-Carleton Children’s Aid Society (CAS) show that two thirds of the child abuse accusations resulting from custody cases are false.

GOVERNMENT-REGULATED EMBRYO SCREENING UNDERWAY IN BRITAIN

LONDON, May 11 (LSN) – In Britain, the first children screened as embryos by the government’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority have been brought to term. The Independent reported last week that 50 children have been born having survived the scrutiny of scientists prior to being implanted in their mothers’ wombs.  Pro-lifers are alarmed at the blatant eugenics behind the process; but Dr David King, editor of Genethics News, predicts that embryos screening will teach people that “having children is a serious matter which must not be left to chance…[and]…that children have a right to the best genetic chance in […]

SCIENTISTS SAY GLOBAL WARMING DUE TO SUN, NOT PEOPLE

LONDON, May 22 (LSN) – Scientists at the Danish Meteorological Institute have found evidence to support their claim that global warming is due to changes in solar activity, rather than “greenhouse gases”  created by human use of fossil fuels, as the standard environmentalist theory goes. Scientists at the European Particle-Physics Centre in Geneva say that the Danish theory could be tested in two years.  Despite the fact that the “greenhouse gas” theory is disputed in many quarters, many nations have agreed to a drastic reduction in the use of fossil fuels. So far, 34 countries, including Canada, have signed the […]
