OTTAWA, September 23, 2004 ( – has learned that Conservative Senator Noel Kinsella has been chosen as Leader of the Opposition in the Senate.  The appointment is being seen as a “slap in the face” to small ‘c’ conservative members of the party recently created from a merger of the Progressive Conservative and Canadian Alliance parties.  Like disgraced former NDP MP Svend Robinson, Kinsella has been a political champion of nearly every anti-moral cause related to life, family and freedom.  Brian Rushfeldt of the Canada Family Action Coalition told that the move was a “slap in the face for true conservatives.”  When informed of the selection Rushfeldt said sarcastically, “Oh now that’s a good choice, can we get any more Liberal?”  He added, “Why are we calling them Red Tories? They are not Red Tories. They are Liberals – through and through in almost every way.”  Like Svend Robinson, his NDP counterpart in the House of Commons, Kinsella has been a leader in introducing bills granting special rights for homosexuals.  EGALE, the homosexual activist group behind the homosexual ‘marriage’ movement praised Kinsella for his work to change the Human Rights Act to place homosexuality on par with race in the human rights act. ( )  In fact, Kinsella and Robinson played tag team in Parliament by introducing their pet homosexual hate crime legislation C-250 at both levels.  During the C-250 debate Kinsella was said to be responsible for the fast-tracked navigation of the bill through the Senate.  Moreover, Kinsella thwarted efforts by other Conservative Senators calling for more public hearings on the bill. ( )  Like Svend Robinson in the House of Commons, Kinsella has been a major supporter of legalizing euthanasia and assisted suicide.  Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition told he was “concerned about his appointment due to his support for euthanasia in the past.”  To express concerns:  Mr. Stephen Harper, M.P.  (Conservative – Party Leader)  Calgary Southwest, Alberta A203, 1600 – 90th Avenue S.W.  Calgary, Alberta T2V 5A8 Tel.: (403) 253-7990 Fax: (403) 253-8203 E-Mail: [email protected]
