OTTAWA, September 30, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Campaign Life Coalition (CLC), Canada’s National Pro-Life Political organization, has announced that on Monday Oct. 4 at 9 a.m. it will protest the swearing in of newly appointed Supreme Court judges Louise Charron and Rosalie Abella. In a press release, CLC notes that the event will be a “protest of the selection of radical Justices Abella and Charron by people concerned about increasing judicial activism, and the threats that these judges pose to the Supreme Court and Canada’s legal system.” Mr. Jim Hughes, National President of Campaign Life Coalition said “that we fear that both Louise Charron and Rosalie Abella will apply their own ideological biases which are decidedly left of center”.
The CLC release adds, “The Supreme Court is not impartial and does not respect Parliamentary democracy. It does not represent ordinary Canadians, and, instead, has caused the disempowerment of ordinary Canadians. The Supreme Court should be shed of its lawmaking role.” The organizations is urging other Canadians to join in the protest event.
