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 […]

MANITOBA FIGHTS PROSTITUTION – PUSHERS AND USERS TO LOSE CARS

WINNIPEG, May 8 (LSN) – Manitoba’s Justice Minister Vic Toews announced Thursday that the provincial government is putting forward legislation to allow police to seize a vehicle used in connection with prostitution. First-time offending “johns” will have a chance to attend a “john school” rather than lose their cars.  Vehicles seized under the legislation will be sold, and the proceeds used to help people avoid falling into a life of prostitution. Mr Toews predicts the law will take effect by year’s end.

OTTAWA, May 8 (LSN) – On Wednesday the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) called on Canadians for “comments on a broad and fundamental review of all of its policies affecting Canadian television programming,” according to a CRTC press release. The government’s media control agency is holding public hearings beginning September 23 to “examine how all the elements of the Canadian broadcasting system can cooperate to produce more high-quality programming that attracts Canadian audiences and is exportable to world markets.”  Pro-family Canadians have long argued that there is a demand for more wholesome programming on Canadian airwaves; and it appears […]

OTTAWA, May 8 (LSN) – A prominent gay activist group, Equality for Gays and Lesbians Everywhere (EGALE), announced yesterday the commencement of a government-funded survey of Canada’s “gays,  lesbians and bisexuals,” in order to find evidence of “discrimination.” The survey will be sent to 40,000 people of EGALE’s choosing, and is expected to cost Canadian taxpayers almost $400,000.  At a press conference to launch the project, Secretary of State for Multiculturalism and the Status of Women Hedy Fry explained the government’s interest in the study. “If we’re going to look where there are barriers to equality, where there is discrimination, […]

CHINA’S ONE-CHILD POLICY CREATES HOST OF SOCIAL ILLS

BEIJING, May 7 (LSN) – Since the World Bank put pressure on Mao Tse Tsung to cut the population of China in the early ‘80s, the country has pursued a ruthless “one-child policy,” resulting in widespread and well documented human rights abuses, including forced sterilizations and forced abortions.  Apart from such gross injustices, the policy has also caused demographic and social problems. Guo Xiang,  a professor at the China University of Political Science and Law, is quoted in London’s Electronic Telegraph today as saying that many children in China are now so spoiled that their grasp on reality is dangerously […]

LIBERALS SHUT DOWN DEBATE ON PARENTS’ RIGHTS

OTTAWA, May 7 (LSN) – Representatives of the Liberals, the Conservatives, and the NDP spoke against a parents’ rights motion in the House of Commons on Monday, and the Liberal government shut down debate entirely, by refusing to allow the motion to come to a vote.  MP Garry Breitkreuz (Reform, Yorkton-Melville) proposed a motion recognizing the natural right of parents to direct the upbringing of their children, and the obligation of the State to refrain from interfering in family life and taking over parental authority. The motion, M-33, was motivated by widespread concern about recent anti-family initiatives inspired by the […]

LIBERALS THWART PRO-FAMILY TAX CHANGES

OTTAWA, May 7 (LSN) – The federal Liberal government has thwarted a popular and sorely-needed pro-  family measure proposed by one of its own backbenchers. Last Thursday, the government-controlled committee dealing with private members’ business put a stop to Paul Szabo’s Bill C-244, which would have permitted income splitting between spouses in single-income families. The measure was designed to help end unfair tax discrimination against families with stay-at-home moms.  In recent years, the Chretien government has stacked the committee on private members’ business with its own people. Pro-life observers believe the move is an extension of the Liberals’ repeated public […]
