In 1969, the Trudeau government removed abortion from the Criminal Code. This action has led to the deaths of over six million unborn Canadians. In 2016, the present Trudeau government legalized the killing (euthanasia) of the elderly, handicapped, depressed etc. and gave individual Canadians the legal right to assisted suicide.

In 2018, this same government will legalize marijuana, totally ignoring - among the other serious side effects - the research that shows the deadly side effects this drug has on the mental and physical health and development of young people. It is a proven fact the continued use of marijuana leads to the use of hard drugs.

This fall of 2017, Trudeau’s justice minister plans to remove Section 176 from the Criminal Code. This law lists the specific protections given to religious leaders, their places of worship and the gatherings of persons therein.

People of all faiths and beliefs should be very concerned about the removal of Section 176 from the Criminal Code because it has the very real potential to open the door to the loss of freedom of religion and conscience.
