TORONTO, July 3, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Liberal leader who shocked Canadians last year by declaring he would break up the country to keep same-sex “marriage” in Quebec made good on his commitment to homosexual activism over the weekend as he pulled out all the stops for Toronto’s annual Gay Pride parade.

“The Liberal Party believes that the advancement of LGBTTQ rights is a priority and we hope you will join us in continuing this vital work,” declared Justin Trudeau in a video marking Sunday’s parade.

Toronto District School Board opens its first co-ed washroom

TORONTO, June 18, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – An "alternative" school dedicated to "equity" issues has opened the Toronto District School Board’s first co-ed washroom.

Intended primarily for students identifying as “transgender,” the washroom was set up after a petition by grade 8 students that cited last year’s passage of Bill 33, which enshrined protections based on "gender identity" and “gender expression” in Ontario.

Most of the major newspapers in Toronto wrote stories this week about the sexually explicit poster placed in a grade 7 classroom for almost 7 months. 

The poster is the product of ACT (Aids Committee of Toronto) and it leads children to their website where they will find "Youth Programs - Sex A to Z" (WARNING: this link contains graphic content). This material is so vile that I cannot even describe most of it and it is funded by Scotiabank.

National Post Editorial Board: Stephen Harper, Canada's pro-choice activist-in-chief

A 2011 Environics poll found that 92% of Canadian respondents opposed sex-selective abortion on moral grounds. A 2012 Angus Reid poll found that about two-thirds of respondents (about half of them women) favoured laws prohibiting sex-selective abortion. While most Canadians oppose laws that would prohibit abortion entirely, a majority recognizes that killing a fetus for no other reason than its sex is wrong.

On Wednesday (March 20), legislation that aims to protect transgender people from discrimination took a big step toward becoming law. The House of Commons passed Bill C-279 by a vote of 149-137 at third reading, sending it on to the Senate.

Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca NDP MP Randall Garrison’s private member’s bill would add gender identity and gender expression to the prohibited grounds of discrimination in the Canadian Human Rights Act. It would also amend the Criminal Code to outlaw hate speech that advocates genocide against groups distinguished by gender, and to allow evidence that a crime was motivated by hate based on gender to be taken into account during sentencing.
