TORONTO, Canada, October 25, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Campaign Life Coalition has posted a last minute resource for voters in Ontario's municipal elections. Special web pages are now available for CLC's candidate ratings for Ontario Mayors and City Councillors.

The announcement by the national pro-life organization explained that this election cycle, it did not target every city in Ontario, due to limited resources, but “we focused instead on the cities which are known to fund Planned Parenthood with taxpayer dollars”. 

CLC's announcement included the following Ontario cities: 
– Hamilton  
– Ottawa  
– Toronto  
– Waterloo Region  
– plus the Mayors of the City of Cambridge, City of Kitchener, Township of North Dumfries and City of Waterloo, who automatically get seats on Waterloo Regional Council.

CLC explained its strategic focus on these cities by saying that Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the world and its founder, Margaret Sanger was a racist and eugenicist who spoke of eliminating “undesirables” from society.

“For obvious reasons, pro-life voters do not want their money being funnelled towards an organization that so runs against their core values. That is the question we put towards candidates”, stated the CLC announcement.
