"the organization's core mandate respect individual human rights and labour laws and do not support discriminatory practices. These changes will help ensure that a young person in a job funded by the Government will work in an environment that respects the rights of all Canadians."
You are clearly of the opinion that as pro-life / Christian people, we "support discriminatory practices". Further you are also apparently of the opinion that we do not "respect the rights of all Canadians".
Do you have any idea how insulting that is to us?
Not only are your opinions patently false but the irony here is that you and your government--and your leader Justin Trudeau and I guess all Liberals for that matter since all Liberals are forced to tow the party line--discriminate against us and refuse to respect our Charter rights. In fact why is it that your government has the gall to use our Charter of Rights and Freedoms as a justification for this deplorable behaviour you engage in?
We respect the rights of all Canadians, before and after birth, whereas your government can only find it in their hardened hearts to support those people who have the good fortune to make it out of the womb in one piece and not ripped apart in a bloody mess of death.
What a terrible legacy your government will have once it finally leaves office: the most anti Charter rights government Canada has ever had and the most pro-abortion. This is embarrassing to all Canadians, to me, and to the world.

Dear Ms. Maloney:On behalf of the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, this email is in response to your correspondence regarding the recent change to the eligibility requirements for the 2018 Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program.The intent of the CSJ program has always been to provide young people with high quality, paid summer work opportunities, where they can gain valuable experience and earn money to help pay for school.As you are aware, the 2018 application asks organizations to confirm that both the job and the organization's core mandate respect individual human rights and labour laws and do not support discriminatory practices.These changes will help ensure that a young person in a job funded by the Government will work in an environment that respects the rights of all Canadians.To address questions from Canadians on eligibility, Employment and Social Development Canada published supplementary information on the CSJ web page at www.canada.ca/en/employment-so
cial-development/services/fund ing/canada-summer-jobs/supplem entary-information.html. You are encouraged to consult this information, which includes examples of core mandates and proposed jobs.As outlined in the supplementary information, an organization’s core mandate is the primary activities undertaken by the organization that reflect its ongoing services provided to the community. It is not the beliefs, nor the values of the organization. To respect individual human rights means that an organization’s primary activities and the job responsibilities do not seek to remove or actively undermine existing rights.Thank you for writing to share your views on this matter.Yours sincerely,Canada Summer JobsAn initiative of the Summer Work Experience ProgramEmployment and Social Development CanadaToll-free: 1-800-935-5555TTY: 1-800-926-9105
