By John-Henry Westen   YELLOWKNIFE, NWT, May 25, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Supreme Court of the Northwest Territories (NWT) ruled Wednesday that the Yellowknife Catholic School Board may not refuse non-Catholics to sit as trustees governing the board.   The issue brings to the fore the increasing trend to deny Catholics in Canada their rights to Catholic education supported by the education tax dollars of Catholic rate-payers.  Already in Newfoundland and Quebec the right to Catholic schooling supported by education taxes from Catholics has been removed.   In the current case, Justice J.E. Richard of the NWT Supreme Court ruled […]

By John Jalsevac GENEVA, Switzerland, May 24, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Yesterday, May 23, the 60th annual World Health Assembly (WHA) came to a close. The WHA is self-described as “the supreme decision-making body of the World Health Organization.” It meets in Geneva in May each year, and is attended by delegations from the 193 Member States. Given that the new Director-General of the WHO, Dr. Margaret Chan, has explicitly stated that her emphasis as director of the powerful organization will be on “the health of women and of the people of Africa,” pro-life and pro-family advocates have keenly observed the […]
