Nov. 2 Mr. Ted White (North Vancouver, Ref.) introduced Bill C-293, an act to amend the Income Tax Act (political activities by charities receiving public funds). This private member’s bill would disqualify from charitable status corporations, trusts and organizations that have received discretionary funding from the public money of Canada or a province if they give direct or indirect support or endorsement to parties or candidates for election at the federal level. While pro-life charities such as Human Life International and Alliance for Life Canada have been de-registered, pro-abortion political groups such as Planned Parenthood still enjoy charitable status.  (Parliament of Canada)
