TORONTO, October 1, 2003 ( – The Canada Family Action Coalition has decided against issuing a voter’s guide in the Ontario election.  The group told LifeSite today that the reason is simply because we have concluded that at this point in Ontario’s history there are no significant differences in the major parties regarding family related policy.”  Brian Rushfeldt, executive director of CFAC said, “A voter guide would not show much. It would perhaps show the Family Coalition Party (which has nothing to do with our CFAC organization) has policies that are very Family friendly.”  In a letter to supporters, CFAC notes, “Indeed, the leaders of the NDP and the Liberals have indicated strong support for legalizing homosexual ‘marriage’ and for other aspects of the homosexual agenda. And, while Tory Premier Ernie Eves has recently mouthed words of discontent with re-defining marriage, he is personally responsible for the current change in the law in Ontario. It was Premier Eves who refused to appeal the June 10 Appeal Court ruling to the Supreme Court of Canada, and it was his cabinet minister Norm Sterling who enthusiastically announced the province would forge ahead with registering homosexual ‘marriages’ conducted in the province.”  Most of the parties in the race are (with the notable exception of the Family Coalition Party), in CFAC’s view, “indistinguishable on many other issues as well, including funding for abortion clinics and abortions; funding for daycare: funding for special interest groups, and support for the out of control Ontario Human Rights commission.”  CFAC concludes by encouraging their supporters to “look very closely at which party does represent a pro-family, pro-life position on its policies before you make your X tomorrow.”  Campaign Life Coalition, the provincial and national pro-life political organization, while agreeing that the major parties are similar in their disdain for life and family, takes a different approach. It is urging voters to cast a ballot for individual candidates, where available, who support life and family policies regardless of their party and leaders views. As well, CLC strongly endorses the Family Coalition Party as the only pro-life, pro-family party.
