TORONTO, Feb 12 ( – With an Ontario election seeming imminent this spring, Ontario voters for whom life and family are the first priority are feeling deeply betrayed by the Tories.  Grassroots Ontarians are asking whether the Mike Harris Tories are more “progressive” than conservative. In the February issue of the Interim, Canada’s pro-life newspaper, the Tory track record for life and family is reviewed.

Steve Jalsevac, a Toronto director of Campaign Life Coalition, writes that while a good number of Tory MPPs are family-values oriented and want to have social conservative policies implemented, their general inexperience and timidity, and a consistently overbearing party leadership, have short-circuited all major social-conservative initiatives.
