TORONTO (LifeSiteNews) – A former Canadian Liberal MP has called for Fox News be banned in Canada 

Adam Vaughan claimed on social media that the American news network was the trucker Freedom Convoy’s “biggest amplifier” and a vessel for information geared towards the Conservative Party of Canada’s “base.”  

“Never ever forget that when @CPC_HQ MPs want to get to their base this is the show they lineup to get on: Fox News,” Vaughan tweeted. 

“(Fox News) was the convoy’s biggest amplifier. While folks talk about taking RT off the air… Fox News is just as corrosive… Maybe it should be returned to its country of origin.” 

Vaughan served as a Liberal MP for Toronto’s Spadina-Fort York riding from 2014 to 2021. 

His tweet included a video link to a segment with popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson, in which Carlson said that he is “totally opposed to these [Russia] sanctions and I don’t think that we should be at war with Russia.” 

“I think we should probably choose the side of Russia if we have to choose between Russia and Ukraine. That is my view,” Carlson added.

Joe Biden’s pick to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court is abortion defender D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black woman nominated to the nation's highest court ever.

By choosing Brown Jackson, Biden is fulfilling two campaign promises at the same time: first, to use every tool at his disposal to defend and promote the killing of the most innocent; and, second, to make the nation’s highest court more "diverse."

Of course, Biden could have achieved "diversity" by different means (and, as a "Catholic," he should have), but, as throughout the rest of tenure in office, he has chosen to pursue the deadly path of promoting abortion.

And, make no mistake: Planned Parenthood and NARAL are ecstatic about Brown Jackson.

SIGN and SHARE this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Unlike most previous nominees to the Supreme Court, Brown Jackson has a judicial history of supporting abortion - which should be enough to cause Senators to reject her.

In the 1990s, she wrote an amicus brief defending a Massachusetts law that banned protests outside of abortion clinics. Thankfully, the law was ruled unconstitutional in 2000, but it shows how Brown Jackson intends to use the law to silence free speech so that the killing can continue without protest.

Pro-lifers are unanimous in their opposition to Brown Jackson, while the pro-abortionists are undivided in their zeal for her nomination.

SIGN and SHARE this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Carrie Severino, president of the pro-life Judicial Crisis Network, warned of an imminent free speech threat, stating that in her "buffer-zone" amicus brief, Brown Jackson "repeatedly disparaged the peaceful and often prayerful clinic protesters as engaging in ‘in-your-face’ and ‘chaotic’ activity that somehow fell short of ‘pure speech.’"

And, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List stated her organization's opposition to Brown Jackson's nomination, saying: "She is on record opposing the free speech rights of pro-life advocates pleading to save lives outside abortion centers and supporting the false claim that abortion is ‘health care.’"

But, the country's top abortion groups are celebrating Brown Jackson’s appointment.

Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson wrote in a tweet addressed to Jackson: "We can’t wait to see the fantastic work you will do and will be here to support you along the way,"

And, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmaraju agreed.

"Judge Jackson … has a demonstrated record of defending and upholding our constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms — including reproductive freedom," Timmaraju said. "We are confident that she will be a voice for justice, equity, and freedom on the Court in the decades to come."

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Carlson also supported the Canadian Freedom Convoy and mentioned it many times on his show.  

Vaughan’s suggestion that Fox News be banned in Canada follows the decision of many Canadian cable and internet providers to cut off access to RT News.  

RT News and Sputnik are owned by the Russian Federation and operate news channels in many countries. They have come under scrutiny as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

Both Canada’s Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have said they support the removal of RT and other Russian TV channels from Canadian airwaves. 

Canada’s own state-funded Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and other mainstream media outlets were quick to condemn the Freedom Trucker Convoy, which ended after Trudeau used the Emergencies Act (EA) to clear out the protesters.
