EDMONTON, Apr 21 (LSN) – The Canada Family Action Coalition (CFAC) issued a press release last week denouncing the Alberta government for relinquishing its governing powers to the un-elected Supreme Court. CFAC noted that the Alberta government has spent over $95,000 in propaganda in the past couple of weeks defending the Supreme Court decision in the Vriend case to force the province to include “sexual orientation” in their human rights code, giving active homosexuals special protection against discrimination.  CFAC president Roy Beyer revealed that Premier Ralph Klein’s “deadline” of seven days within which he had to use the provincial notwithstanding clause was Klein’s own creation. “The people of Alberta can still decide through their elected representatives, to use the ‘notwithstanding clause’ next week, next month, next year or even after the next election,” Mr. Beyer said. Thus CFAC has encouraged pro-family Albertans to keep up the pressure on elected representatives in the province to guard against the judicial activism of the Supreme Court by using the notwithstanding clause.
