One Premier That Won't Be Missed

I'm talking, of course, about Dalton McGuinty. Nine years of runaway deficits and continuous destruction of religious freedoms and parental rights, is more than enough. Too bad he's not taking that Brothel Education Minister of his with him.

Now, as some speculate, McGuinty may seek the Federal Liberal leadership. Oh, that will be hilarious. We'll have Trudeau II (which also happens to be the media's new favorite instead of Michael Ignatieff,) versus a man who by all means can be regarded as Bob Rae II. Heck, if several low-profile candidates choose to join forces during the upcoming vote, we may even have Stephane Dion II. Bring in the pop corn :)

And another thing: Are we going to see some protest rallies against McGuinty's decision to prorogue the legislature until a new Liberal leader is elected? Any pickets and marches at Queen's Park? Signs featuring Ontario Parliament with a huge padlock on it? Attempts to reconvene despite the absence of the members of the governing party? Or is prorogation merely a routine parliamentary procedure, which is by no means undemocratic...? (As long as it's the Liberals who resort to it, of course.)

Ontario Catholic Schools Stripped Of Their Identity

As per Ontario’s Education Minister Laurel Broten, all Ontarians are equal and must be protected from bullying. But Catholics are apparently less equal, so bullying them is fine, especially in the name of "anti-bullying":
TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In what pro-life leaders are calling a stunning and unprecedented attack on religious freedom, Ontario’s Education Minister has apparently declared that Catholic schools can no longer teach that abortion is wrong.

Laurel Broten, who serves under Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty, said Wednesday that Catholic schools are barred from teaching this core moral belief because Bill 13, the government’s controversial “anti-bullying” law, prohibits “misogyny.”
In other words, not only Ontario Catholic schools must now allow perverse clubs on their premises, but they also can no longer teach the Catholic Church position on human life and fetal rights. So what exactly makes these schools "Catholic", may I ask?

Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) has launched a petition demanding the Minister's resignation and the rescindment of Bill 13. Consider signing it. However, unless McGuinty's government falls anytime soon and the PC wins the subsequent election, things are unlikely to change.

And another thing: As much as the recent development is outrageous, it was possible to see this coming, long before the bill 13 was drafted.
By the way, all of you who send your kids to the separate school system and voted for Dalton McGuinty, you can probably kiss the separate school system good bye. I give it 5 years, if that. – John Pacheco
This was written right after the 2007 election, when McGuinty and his internazi-sozi thugs won their second majority. It's been 5 years (almost to the day) and the government-funded Catholic school system is now Catholic in name only. Give it another 5 years or so - and it will share the fate of its long gone Protestant counterpart.

Abortion Debate Goes On

In the Parliament (no, the debate didn't end with the defeat of the Motion 312)...
The answer came almost immediately when B.C. Conservative MP Mark Warawa filed another motion: “That the House condemn discrimination against females occurring through sex-selective pregnancy termination.”
The fact that sex-selection abortion in Canada is occurring also raises what should be unthinkable questions for our society. To what extent, for example, is female feticide associated with creating a culture in which other abuses of women – such as “honour killings” – are tolerated? And how consistent are we in our approach in criminal law when we prohibit female genital mutilation but not the killing of an unborn girl just because she’s a girl?
...And even in the Supreme Court itself.
OTTAWA — Just a few weeks after Parliament debated a motion on when human life begins, the Supreme Court of Canada will hear an appeal that again raises the difficult issue of when a fetus is considered a human being under the law.

The case is one of more than two dozen appeals Canada’s top court will hear in a fall session dominated by issues of life and death, including a case about withdrawing life support and one about a baby abandoned in a store bathroom.

But the case of Ivana Levkovic, who was charged with, then acquitted of, concealing the dead body of a child, hearkens back to a divisive debate federal politicians recently held...
The defeated motion in Parliament, and the Levkovic case, deal with different parts of the Criminal Code, but both confront the question of when a human life begins.
Like it or not, the fetal rights debate is not going to go away. Not until the common sense triumphs and the self-evident truths that life begins at conception and that an unborn baby is a human, are acknowledged by our nation and enshrined in law.
