Time for change in Ottawa-Vanier

The following quotes regarding abortion were made by Liberal leader Justin Trudeau:
It’s not for any government to legislate what happens – what a woman chooses to do with her body."
(Justin Trudeau doesn't understand basic biology: a fetus is not part of a woman's body, it is a separate human being.)

I have made it clear that future candidates need to be completely understanding that they will be expected to vote pro-choice on any bills.”

(Justin Trudeau discriminates against pro-life persons.)

"Since 1988, the Supreme Court of Canada has affirmed that a woman's right to choose in this matter is part of her fundamental rights and freedoms. And the Liberal party is the party of the Charter. And Canadians need to count on the fact that Liberals, with our votes, will defend women's rights and Charter rights."

(Justin Trudeau doesn't understand the Canadian Charter of rights and freedoms or the
1988 Morgentaler decision. There is no Charter right to abortion and the Supreme Court never recognized a Charter right to abortion. See

As someone who was raised Roman Catholic, and who attended a Jesuit school, I understand that it is difficult for people of deep faith to set their beliefs aside in order to serve Canadians who may not share those beliefs.”

(Justin Trudeau expects Catholics to set aside their beliefs in order to qualify for public office. Does he expect Muslims or Jews, or those of any other religious faith to set their beliefs aside too? And do Catholics have to set aside just their beliefs about abortion? What about other beliefs Catholics hold like duty to help the poor, to respect and be good stewards of God's creation, to minister to the sick, etc. Do Catholics have to set aside those beliefs too? Why does Justin's belief system (that abortion is a "woman's right") trump the belief system of others?)

But for me, this is what liberalism is all about. It is the idea that private belief, while it ought to be valued and respected, is fundamentally different from public duty.”

(Justin Trudeau thinks private belief is different from public duty. Do we really want to put our trust in someone to be Prime Minister of Canada when he can so easily park his conscience at the door?

Say no to Justin Trudeau

Say no to Mauril Belanger
