TORONTO, Ontario, January 20, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – After holding a secret vote, the majority of Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MPs voted today to toss pro-life MP and former CPC leadership candidate Derek Sloan from the caucus, due to what party leader Erin O’Toole said was an acceptance of a $131 donation from a “well-known white supremacist.”
In an email sent to his followers this afternoon, Sloan confirmed reports that the party had indeed, in a majority secret vote, decided to oust him.
“Today, spurred on by O’Toole, a vote was held by my CPC caucus colleagues, and they have just decided to expel me. What does this mean? I will now sit as an independent MP in the House of Commons. I will still vote, debate, and represent true conservative values and policies,” wrote Sloan.
Sloan urged his followers to “not cancel” their CPC membership and to “not cancel your delegate spot.”
He then went on to say that no matter how “callous and misguided” the actions of O’Toole and the MPs who voted him out were, “We have much work to do in the next two months as we prepare for the policy convention in March.”
“Throughout the next few weeks, there will be ‘virtual delegate selection meetings’ where you will be able to vote for you riding’s delegate who will represent you and vote on your behalf at convention,” said Sloan.
“I would like you to help vote for the most conservative delegates possible. To do this you must remain as a party member. Even if the CPC emails you today, offering for you to drop out and cancel your membership, do not do it!”
On Monday, CPC leader Erin O’Toole announced he had “initiated the process” to remove Sloan from the caucus via the Reform Act, due to what he says was an acceptance of a $131 donation from a “well-known white supremacist” named Paul Fromm to the Conservative Party of Canada in August 2020.
A recent Press Progress report had previously noted that an individual named Paul Fromm had donated a total of $131 to the CPC in August 2020.
The CPC “confirmed” to Press Progress that the money was directed to Sloan’s leadership campaign. O’Toole said he was “outraged” at the news of Fromm’s donation and promised an investigation into the matter.
Fromm, whose donation came under the alias Frederick P. Fromm, as Sloan says he discovered, is described as a white supremacist tied to the “neo-Nazi” label.
It was later in the day after the Press Progress report was published that O’Toole sent out his statement saying he had started the process to remove Sloan.
Sloan immediately fought back with a response, saying in a Facebook video, the CPC’s top brass “picked a fight with the wrong person.”
Sloan also sent out a detailed statement late Monday, in which he noted Fromm used an alias when he donated, was a member of the CPC, and voted in the leadership race.
In his statement, posted before his Facebook video, Sloan said Fromm had used an alternate name when he donated, was a member of the CPC, and voted in the leadership race.
PETITION UPDATE (2/25/2021) -
Not only has the federal Senate in Canada not come to the aid of vulnerable people threatened by the passage of Euthanasia Bill C-7, they have actually voted to make matters worse by EXPANDING provision of euthanasia beyond what C-7 had originally intended.
The bill will now go back to Parliament, where the Senate's amendments can be accepted or rejected.
Please READ LifeSiteNews' analysis of the Trudeau Liberals' latest salvo in their all-out push to expand euthanasia in Canada: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/canada-senate-passes-euthanasia-bill-expanding-categories-of-the-killable
Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition. Thank you.
PETITION UPDATE (12/9/2020)
On December 3, 2020, the Concurrence at report stage of Bill C-7 passed with 213 yeas and 103 nays, with a total of 316 votes.
Bill C-7 would expand already existing provisions for assisted suicide. It would "repeal the provision that requires a person’s natural death be reasonably foreseeable."
The Bill is currently in its Third Reading in the House of Commons and will move on to the Senate if it passes.
We are obliged to help people who are suffering, especially the vulnerable, and that’s why we must oppose Bill C-7.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition. Then, please contact your MP and tell them to vote NO on Bill C-7. You can find your MP and their contact information HERE.
We are obliged to help people who are suffering, not kill them.
But, that's exactly what the existing euthanasia law - the so-called "medical assistance in dying (MAiD)" provision - allows.
And, right now, the Trudeau Liberals are pushing for making death even more accessible to our most vulnerable citizens by tabling Bill C-7 in Parliament.
Please SIGN this petition and call for Canada's Members of Parliament to REJECT more euthanasia in Bill C-7, and, instead, provide for more homecare, palliative care, and mental health support.
Bill C-7 would expand existing provisions for assisted-suicide by removing the requirement that a person's natural death be reasonably foreseeable to qualify for MAiD.
Simply put: under C-7, people who are not terminally ill can be killed by MAiD!
This is outrageous, as it puts people with disabilities, the elderly, the young, and those who cannot consent (if they had already agreed to MAiD) at serious risk.
Please CLICK HERE to learn more about Bill C-7 and how it would put those vulnerable people more at risk, and allow for more death and more killing.
Then, please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition.
Our elected Members of Parliament should be discussing how to help our disabled, elderly and young people with greater provision for homecare, palliative care, and mental health support, rather than encouraging our most vulnerable to kill themselves with our government's help and endorsement.
Nothing could be more foul and malicious.
And, while it's true that Trudeau's Minister of Justice is sponsoring this atrocious Bill, 40 Conservative Party politicians supported him in the vote on the Bill's Second Reading in late October.
We list these 40 Conservative MPs below, so that, after signing this petition, you can politely and respectfully contact them to let them know you want them to REJECT the expansion of MAiD (which, again, will mean more death and more killing), and to EMBRACE life-affirming provisions, like more funding for homecare, palliative care, and mental health support for our most vulnerable citizens.

Sloan added that he learned “for the first time” about Fromm’s $131 donation in the late afternoon Monday and that upon further investigation, he discovered that “it was clear the donation was made using the name Frederick P Fromm.”
Elections Canada stipulates that the disclosure of a donor name is required only for contributions over $200, meaning that the only entities likely to have known about Fromm’s donation would be Sloan or the CPC.
The Reform Act was passed in 2015, and while it technically it allows for MPs to have a freer vote in the House of Commons, it states that to expel an MP from the caucus, at least 20 percent of the party members must first agree to trigger a review. A majority M.P. vote is then required.
The CPC caucus vote took place this morning, with the majority of MPs voting Sloan out in a secret vote.
In his email today, Sloan said that “of course” there were “undemocratic forces within our Party” who wanted to see “good, democratic, conservatives purged from this convention process.”
He urged his followers to “not let them. That is exactly what Erin O’Toole wants.”
“No matter how ugly — how undemocratic — the events of the last two days have been, always remember, the Party is not the personal property of Erin O’Toole; the CPC belongs to you — the grassroots of the Party. I encourage you to use your voice, to stand up, and represent true conservative values with this convention.”
The CPC elected pro-abortion O’Toole, who professes to be Catholic, as the new leader of the party early in August. Sloan came in fourth place behind Leslyn Lewis and Peter MacKay.
On Tuesday, Canada’s Liberal party Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he is “pleased” that O’Toole has “finally decided to take leadership” and moved to boot out pro-life CPC MP Derek Sloan from the party.
According to earlier reports, many CPC MPs were reportedly looking to back pro-life CPC MP Derek Sloan.
Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) had asked its supporters to “flood” their Conservative MPs and party HQ with a demand that they vote no in removing Sloan from the party, and to “respectfully request that Erin O’Toole walk back this disgraceful attack on Sloan.”
They are also asking their members not to “quit” the CPC or the upcoming policy convention.
