CANADIAN LABOUR CONGRESS INITIATES GAY ADVOCACY

OTTAWA, Jan 19 (LifeSiteNews) – Last Friday the Canadian Labour Congress launched a campaign to raise awareness in the workplace of “gay and lesbian rights.” The Congress is the national voice of the labour movement, but claims to speak for “all workers and their families, in Canada and beyond.”  Millions of unionized workers are forced to contribute to the Congress through their union dues including many who are diametrically opposed to the anti-family initiatives the Congress espouses. Among the campaign’s materials is a poster with the pictures of seven men and women and sporting the headline: “We’ll give you a […]

CANADIAN BABY DEARTH CAUSE OF UPCOMING ECONOMIC HARDSHIPS

OTTAWA, Jan 19 (LifeSiteNews) – A report on Canadian indebtedness issued last month by the Fraser Institute warns that the Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security, and healthcare have all been put in jeopardy thanks to the anti-natalist demographics seen in Canada since the 1960’s. The institute report explains that since Canada’s system is pay-as-you-go benefits of current retirees are financed by current workers.

According to the report, the unfunded liability of CPP and OAS alone is $1.1 […]

OTTAWA, Jan 18 (LifeSiteNews) – Late last month Statistics Canada reported that over the last ten years, violent crime has risen 77% among youth in Canada. The above research is at polar opposites with the American research report on crime released last fall indicating that crime was at it’s lowest in 20 years in the United States, and alleging that abortion may be the champion of the cause. Here in Canada, youth crime is up,  and significantly so. Abortion can therefore in no way be touted as having any kind of positive impact on Canadian society, as Dr. Henry Morgentaler […]
