HAMILTON, Ontario (LifeSiteNews) — Canada’s national pro-life organization Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) warned that a radical pro-LGBT bill banning so-called “conversion therapy” in all its forms could lead to parents and pastors being jailed.

Bill C-4 was passed without debate last Wednesday with sweeping bipartisan support, after Conservative Party of Canada Member of Parliament Rob Moore successfully motioned to have the bill “fast-tracked” to the Senate.

In essence, Bill C-4 would punish anyone helping children or others with gender confusion or unwanted same-sex attraction with jail time of up to five years.

In a new video titled, “Trudeau Liberals admit ‘conversion therapy’ ban can put parents & pastors in jail,” CLC showed past video clips of Trudeau ministers speaking about previous iterations of Bill C-4.

CLC linked what Liberal party ministers have said in the past about its attempts at so called “conversion therapy” legislation, to what could happen today should Bill C-4 become law.

On March 9, 2020, then Justice Minister David Lametti was asked by reporters if the first attempt at a conversion therapy ban with Bill C-8 “would make it illegal for religious leaders to condemn homosexuality.”

Lametti responded that “a legitimate conversation with an open end in helping someone to explore their sexuality” is “absolutely necessary as people move forward in life, whether it’s a guidance counselor, whether it’s a religious leader, whether it’s a parent, I’m a parent.”

CLC noted that Lametti lumped parents into his answer, saying that “now we know that parents speaking to their children will be in the same boat as pastors and priests.”

Lametti continued in his March 9, 2020, answer: “If it’s open-ended and it is exploratory, then it is. It is not covered by this legislation. What is covered by this legislation are practices that attempt to change one’s sexual orientation towards a predefined goal and so on.”

CLC noted that Lametti’s additional comments sounded “like an admission that it will indeed become illegal for religious leaders and parents to condemn homosexuality.”

Bill C-4 is the Liberals’ third attempt at a “conversion therapy” ban via legislation. It is a new reiteration of Bill C-6, which the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tried to pass previously. However, C-6 was dropped along with all others after a federal election was called.

Bill C-6 was identical to Bill C-8, which was the Liberals’ first attempt at a “conversion therapy” bill. Bill C-8 was also dropped, along with all other bills, when Trudeau prorogued Parliament in August 2020.

CLC noted in its video that then-Minister of Diversity, Inclusion, and Youth, Bardish Chagger, said about then-Bill C-6 that “there are young people feeling a lot of pressure and this legislation, actually, hopefully provide some relief from that pressure, is it turned the tables in the conversation because the person who is imposing that pressure now will have, well, the law will be able to take care of that issue.”

CLC said about this answer, “Did she (Chagger) just admit that mom and dad can be prosecuted if their child perceives pressure on the issues of gender identity, gender expression and homosexuality? It sure sounded like it.”

The dangerous ideas of Critical Race Theory (CRT) are being forced on students in public schools around the country.

This is wrong and parents have had enough! It's time to join them in saying "STOP!" to this harmful and racist propaganda.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which says "No to CRT" in public schools, and "Yes to parents' right" to strongly protest CRT.

But, what is CRT anyway and why is it so dangerous?

Critical Race Theory is a hateful system of indoctrination which teaches that one race is either superior or inferior to another race, and that the United States is inherently racist.

CRT is dangerous and hateful precisely because it teaches children who are not white to despise and envy white children simply because of their skin color. And, as a result, it also teaches white children to despise themselves simply because of the color of their skin.

CRT also erroneously teaches that American society is inherently racist, and that different, detrimental policies (like reparations for slavery and race-based pay scales) should be imposed on the population to redistribute wealth from whites to non-whites.

This type of racist/marxist propaganda should have NO place in public, taxpayer-funded schools!

And, thankfully, American parents of EVERY COLOR are raising their voices and ballots against it!

Indeed, parents understand the destructive ramifications of CRT and, despite outrageous threats from Biden's Justice Department to prosecute them, they have been strongly protesting CRT at school board meetings across the country!

And now, in the first test of its kind, a candidate who was campaigning hard against CRT just won the governorship of Virginia in a huge upset victory.

That's great news, but we now need to contact every state legislature about this crucial educational issue.

And, we need to DEMAND that they BAN Critical Race Theory from every public school in their states - both primary and high schools, and colleges!

Whereas advocates of CRT seem more intent on vengence than on teaching children of every race to respect everybody, regardless of skin color, American parents of every race understand that it is not the color of one's skin that matters, but the content of one's character (to paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr.).

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition asking all state legislatures to BAN Crititical Race Theory from public schools in their respective states.

Thank you!

Toward the end of its video, CLC noted, “Now you know why many call Justin Trudeau’s Bill C-4 ‘the parental prosecution bill.’”

If Bill C-4 passes the senate, which CLC says could happen as early as Tuesday, it would be illegal in Canada for anyone to try and reverse a person’s orientation from homosexual to heterosexual.

It would also be illegal to try and “repress or reduce” a homosexual or transsexual behavior or tendency in a person, even if it is an adult wanting help.

The text of Bill C-4 defines the term “conversion therapy” in the broadest sense, and those who go against the bill could face a maximum penalty of up to five years in prison.

Bill C-4 defines “conversion therapy” as “any practice, treatment or service designed to: change a person’s sexual orientation to heterosexual; change a person’s gender identity to cisgender; change a person’s gender expression so that it conforms to the sex assigned to the person at birth; repress or reduce non-heterosexual attraction or sexual behaviour; repress a person’s non-cisgender gender identity; or repress or reduce a person’s gender expression that does not conform to the sex assigned to the person at birth.”

CLC’s Political Operations Director Jack Fonseca called Bill C-4 a “parental prosecution bill.”

“There are no protections whatsoever in the bill for faith leaders who, for example, discourage a gender-confused person from identifying as transgender and who try to help them be at peace with the male or female body in which they were born,” said Fonseca.

CLC hosts the website stoptheban.ca which it says includes “powerful video testimonies from people, including Canadians who’ve been helped and even their lives saved by spiritual guidance, pastoral care and professional talk therapy from a licensed professional.”
