OTTAWA, May 4 (LSN) – In another glaring example of the often identical philosophies of the three establishment political parties the Liberals, Progressive Conservatives, and NDP. Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chretien appointed former Ontario NDP socialist premier Bob Rae to a position with the Canadian Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC). Mr. Rae will be reviewing the performance of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, a task that will provide him access to much highly confidential information.

BATTLEFORD, Sask, May 4 (LSN) – Randy Kirkham, the original crown prosecutor in the case against Robert Latimer (the father who killed his disabled 12-year-old daughter in an alleged “mercy killing”) is facing charges today of obstruction of justice for his actions in the case he brought forward against Latimer.

The law does not require parental permission for abortions. It also for court-approved exemptions in some cases. In spite of such concessions, it appears the governor may veto the measure.
WASHINGTON, May 1 (LSN) – A bill was passed by the US Congress Thursday to enable 2,000 poor children in the District of Columbia to attend private or religious schools.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA, May 1 (LSN) – Most doctors in the state of Western Australia stopped committing abortions yesterday, protesting delays in efforts to liberalize the state’s abortion law. That law, while relatively strict on paper, had not been enforced for decades. Recent charges against two abortionists touched off a storm of controversy, with abortion supporters calling for repeal.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla, May 1 (LSN) – The Florida Senate approved a measure Wednesday to allow a pro-life specialty licence plate after an amazing effort by the pro-life group Choose Life Inc. The group collected over 10,000 signatures to support the measure and also raised the $30,000 (US) development fee required. The bright yellow plate includes a drawing of a smiling boy and girl with the logo “Choose Life.” Three fourths of the proceeds from the $20/year tags will go to the care of mothers and infants in need while the rest will go to support adoption services. The Florida House […]
