TORONTO, January 20, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Canada's newly appointed Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland’s riding association announced on the Liberal Party’s website that it would take part in the pro-abortion, anti-Trump Women’s March on Saturday in Toronto.

But the Liberal Party deleted the announcement after The Rebel reported on it.

According to a screen shot posted by The Rebel, the University-Rosedale Federal Liberal Association stated that it was joining the January 21 march at Queen’s Park “to protest against the rise in acts of hate and discrimination across North America since November.”

“We will meet at 11:30 a.m. on the sidewalk outside the University of Toronto Law School (78 Queen’s Park Crescent) and walk over together to Queen's Park at 11:45 a.m.,” it announced

If the University-Rosedale Federal Liberal Association goes ahead with the protest, it will be rallying against President Trump just after Freeland attends the inauguration as part of the Canadian delegation, The Rebel pointed out.

It asked: “Do you think it’s appropriate for Canada’s Foreign Minister to be attending Trump’s inauguration and representing Canada while her campaign team protests him?”"

Campaign Life Coalition’s Jack Fonseca says no.

“This blunder is further evidence that Trudeau is a walking, talking disaster for Canada,” he observed. “Very poor judgment indeed.”
