OTTAWA, September 26, 2006 ( – The budgets of some of the most wasteful and at the same time biased Canadian government funded programs have been slashed by the new Conservative Government. Three organizations which have been overtly pushing for same-sex marriage have been denied millions of tax-dollars they have been receiving for years under the previous Liberal government.

In an announcement of over two billion dollars in reduction of waste spending, the Conservative Government has included five million dollars in “administrative reductions to Status of Women Canada”, a $5.6 million dollar saving in eliminating the Court Challenges Program, and another $4.2 million dollars in cuts to the Law Commission of Canada. has reported frequently about the abuses of these three organizations. The Court Challenges Program has been the engine with which homosexual activists altered laws in Canada on marriage. (see coverage: ). The Law Commission of Canada also endorsed same sex marriage in 2002 (see coverage: )Âand even suggested that the legal privileges of all marriage should be eliminated. ÂStatus of Women Canada, has pushed both abortion and same-sex marriage (see coverage: )

  In a recent column, Canadian news columnist Link Byefield noted thatÂbetween 1994 and 1997,Âthe Court Challenges program “bankrolled 24 gay-lesbian cases and 23 feminist cases. More recently, it has expanded its activity to finance legal attacks on the parental right to spank children.”

Thousands of Canadians have raised their concerns to their Members of Parliament regarding the waste of taxpayer dollars funding these totally one-sided and ideological organizations.

Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) has repeatedly urged its membership across Canada to demand that public funding to these biased programs be cut. Jim Hughes, National President of CLC congratulated the Conservative Government on the move.Â

“I’m happy to see them doing something that is a common sense solution to a problem that has existed for a long time,” Hughes told Speaking of the end of the Court Challenges program he said, “I think its excellent, wonderful that taxpayers are not going to have to shell out for this. If someone wants to take something to court they can do it at their own expense. For too many years it has been solely at the disposal of the left wing in political struggles and I’m happy to see it come to an end. It is a small step toward restoring democracy in Canada.”

REAL Women Canada, a conservative women’s group said in a press release today that they were “especially pleased” at the cut to Status of Women.“This is a good start, and we hope that the Status of Women will eventually be eliminated entirely, since it does not represent ‘women’, but only represents the ideology of feminists,” said the group. “The Status of Women was established in 1973 under Prime Minister Trudeau and over the years, it has funded feminist groups to serve as agents of change, never recognizing that other women have different views and have no wish to be represented by these feminist organizations.”
