(Campaign Life Coalition) – On December 1, Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party proved once again that it is a veritable hate group against Christians. The Liberals introduced the second reading of Bill C-4 which aims to criminalize so-called “conversion therapy.”
The true goal of the bill however, is to make it illegal to share biblical teaching or moral guidance about transgenderism and homosexuality, whether you’re a religious leader or loving parents.
C-4 will make the expression of these Christian sexual teachings illegal, whether they are from a pulpit to warn believers about the consequences of sin, or in the intimacy of a family home as a private conversation between parents and their gender-confused child.
Also on December 1, Erin O’Toole proved yet again that he’s nothing more than a Liberal in sheep’s clothing and bears no resemblance whatsoever to either a real conservative or a genuine Leader of the Opposition. To everyone’s shock, the Conservatives, her Majesty’s loyal opposition, whose job it is to “oppose” the Liberal government, refused to do any opposing!
Instead, O’Toole had his Justice Critic, Rob Moore, introduce a motion to skip parliamentary democracy and deem Bill C-4 to have “unanimous consent” from all Members of Parliament [MP’s] so that it could pass straight to the Senate.
And that’s precisely what happened.
There was no second reading…
No committee study…
No witnesses to testify about potential harms of the bill…
No third reading vote…
It went straight from Trudeau’s election platform to the floor of the Senate.
Not one single Conservative MP stood up to vote against unanimous consent, and so force the normal parliamentary debates and votes to happen. Not even the pro-life MPs who were sitting in the House.
Now it’s up to the chamber of sober second thought to decide whether parents and religious leaders should be criminalized.
Obviously, the 60 or so Conservative MPs who voted against the previous version of Bill C-4 were threatened or intimidated into letting it pass.
No doubt, the specter of being kicked out of the Conservative caucus – just like O’Toole did to Senator Denise Batters, Derek Sloan MP – and the suspension of CPC National Councillor Bert Chen (driven by O’Toole), hung like the sword of Damocles over their heads.
But fear of getting punished by O’Toole is no excuse for holding one’s tongue and fast-tracking what is arguably one of the most dangerous and unconstitutional pieces of proposed legislation ever seen in Canada.
This abandonment of parliamentary democracy is a sign of Mr. Trudeau moving closer to having the dictatorial power he has long admired and desired.
More and more, it seems our government now functions like this: Trudeau issues an edict, the government-funded journalists in the mainstream media demonize anyone who might oppose Trudeau’s agenda, and then the frightened and intimidated Conservative “opposition” rubber stamps Dear Leader’s diktat into law.
This has to change, but it will require replacing O’Toole as Conservative Party Leader. If you want to help remove O’Toole, sign this petition at membersvote.ca.
The Knights of Columbus in Quebec have apparently begun to pressurize and bully unvaccinated council members and officers who decline to take the COVID jab.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the Quebec Knights of Columbus, urging the Catholic men's fraternal organization to reverse course and stop penalizing Knights who refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.
According to a letter obtained by LifeSiteNews, the leaders of the Quebec State Council of the Knights have seemingly implemented the following restrictions on unvaccinated members: 1) Effective immediately, unvaccinated knights shall be refused access to meeting and social venues; and, 2) Effective November 15th, any officer not "fully vaccinated" shall be relieved of his duties.
If true (and, there is no reason to believe it is not accurate), this Quebec Knights' policy is not only deeply flawed, but also deeply disturbing.
Indeed, the Catholic Church teaches that a Catholic may use his or her conscience to decide to licitly refuse vaccination.
And, while the Church is allowing Catholics to take these unethical vaccines because of the lack of an ethically produced and tested vaccine, it must noted that the Church IS AGAINST FORCED VACCINATION and vaccine mandates.
Therefore, it is difficult to fathom how a Catholic organization can penalize (and, in effect, try to coerce) Catholics to accept vaccines which have many morally and medically troubling aspects.
To start with, all COVID vaccines available to Knights Quebecois were either developed or tested using aborted fetal cell lines! This very fact should militate against penalizing Knights who cannot accept these jabs, in good conscience, as morally repugnant per se.
And, there are at least three other serious issues with the vaccines, namely:
- The vaccines are, themselves, unsafe. The WHO has already reported over 2.1M injuries related to COVID jabs, worldwide.
- The vaccines do not effectively stop transmission, and, in fact, probably facilitate transmission by allowing a vaccinated person to carry a large viral load which they can then spread to vaccinated and unvaccinated, alike.
- It is unwise to take and promote vaccines which have not undergone sufficient testing (animal, and otherwise), and which have no track record for possible long-term negative complications. Whereas most vaccines have taken between six and ten years to be fully tested and approved, these COVID jabs have only been given for less than a year -- and so, we do not know what the long-term effects will be.
With these issues in mind, please SIGN and SHARE this petition which calls on the Quebec Knights of Columbus State Council to reverse the draconian restrictions being placed against unvaccinated Knights.
The Quebec Knights of Columbus should be prepared to make reasonable accommodations for those members and officers who have decided to refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.
After signing, please take a few minutes to contact the Quebec Knights of Columbus to politely, but firmly, ask them to reverse this decision which could seriously impinge on their fellow Knights' ability to follow their consciences in relation to taking a COVID vaccine.

Parents and pastors can be jailed up to 5 years
There were many reasons for MPs to allow debate on this bill. Not only does it take away the right of adults who no longer wish to identify as LGBT to get the type of clinical therapy or spiritual counselling that they want for themselves, as there are even graver reasons.
For me, the most alarming aspect of C-4 is that it can put parents in jail for up to five years if they dare to affirm their gender-confused child in the body he or she was born.
Imagine the following scenario which, unfortunately, is all too realistic these days. Six-year-old Johnny’s “progressive teacher” indoctrinates the classroom with a series of gender identity lessons. Little Johnny comes home and tells his parents he wants to wear a dress and make-up to school tomorrow.
They gently say “no” and affirm him in his biological, God-given sex. The bill’s definition of “Conversion Therapy” is broad enough to include exactly this kind of scenario. Parents can face a fiver in prison for this common sense parenting.
Bill C-4 will make it illegal for mothers and fathers to prevent their underage daughters from taking puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.
These powerful drugs can produce sterility and have irreversible effects that children simply don’t have the mental capacity or power of long-term judgment to be able to truly give informed consent to such procedures.
In fact, the fear of being prosecuted will cause virtually all medical and psychological professionals to offer only one solution to families that come to them for help with a gender-confused child: identify as transgender and begin puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.
No psychiatrist or psychologist will have the courage to counsel the child’s parents with the wait-and-see approach that was used until recently by most professionals, in order that children can grow out of their transgender delusions. Even if known risk factors for gender dysphoria are present, such as sexual abuse or autism, they will not have the courage to counsel against transgender identification.
Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that as many as 98% of gender-confused boys and 88% of gender-confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.(1) In other words, if you just leave the kids alone, most of them will grow out of the delusion of being trapped in the wrong body.
We know that C-4 is targeting parents not only because the open-ended text of the bill is so overbroad that it can only have been deliberately designed to catch normal parenting, but also because Justice Minister David Lametti and Minister Bardish Chagger admitted it on camera.
Watch this video compilation that CLC put together of the Ministers’ responses to journalists, as proof:
It’s undeniable, from the Liberal government’s own lips, that Bill C-4 is really a parental prosecution bill. The true goal of the conversion therapy ban is to enable law enforcement and para-legal agencies to reach into the home and the church.
Even if law enforcement doesn’t choose to lock up the parents in jail, there are other ways to ruin their lives. The law would give Children’s Aid Societies the excuse to separate the child from his or her parents, charging that they are practicing a form of “conversion therapy” and that their traditional parenting represents “torture.”
Boogey man of ‘torture’ distracts attention from their real goal
The Trudeau Liberals know full well that the “discredited practice” to which they keep pointing – of forcibly confining and electroshocking homosexuals – is just a boogey man to distract from the bills real objective: namely, to put the government between parents and their children, and to silence religious leaders in their ability to preach biblical truths about sexuality.
The Liberals know full well that electroshocking of homosexuals has not taken place for almost 50 years. It simply doesn’t happen. It’s a fake argument to get the public to buy-in and to avert attention from the real goal of criminalizing parents and pastors.
If banning procedures from 50 years ago was the government’s real concern, they would’ve used precise language and a narrow definition that criminalized only electroshocking of gays, the use of nauseating chemicals and the use of forcible confinement and violence in the application of those techniques (which aren’t used any more, anywhere in Canada).
Testimonies of ex-trans and ex-gays ignored
The MPs who supported Bill C-4 have ignored the testimonials of people who were helped and even saved from suicide, thanks to what the Bill C-4 is falsely defining as “conversion therapy.”
Campaign Life Coalition had compiled a video series of ex-trans and ex-gays who share how spiritual counselling and clinical therapy helped and healed them. Check out these short testimonials at our stoptheban.ca website.
