OTTAWA, September 22, 2003 ( – The voting is finished, delegates to the Liberal Leadership election have cast their votes for Paul Martin to take over as Liberal Leader and thus Prime Minister replacing Jean Chretien.  Results will be formally announced at the November Leadership convention but the vote is already cast and the overwhelming majority supported Martin over contender Sheila Copps.  Martin has recently been a huge disappointment for pro-family Canadians because of his votes in favour of the homosexual activist hate crime law amendment and against the motion to protect the traditional definition of marriage.  Moreover, Martin has brought on controversial one-worlder and population control advocate Maurice Strong as a top advisor.  On the life issues, Martin views do not appear much different from those of the current pro-abortion Prime Minister.  See related LifeSite coverage:  Top Contender For Next Canadian Prime Minister Will Legislate Homosexual ‘Marriage’ Canada’s Heir-Apparent Prime Minister Courts One-Worlder Maurice Strong for Advisor Liberal party problems presents possibilities for pro-lifers   See the National Post coverage of the Martin vote:
