Received these links from my friend Maryke for the March for Life 2019. EWTN televised the whole event, which I hadn't been aware of. The taping includes Stephanie Gray, the producers from Gosnell and Abby Johnson.

Below is the EWTN coverage of the March.

Stephanie Gray speaks around 17 minutes

The producers of Gosnell can be found around 1:29

Positive news on Freedom of Speech Charter Challenge

The Catholic Civil Rights League has joined Fr. Tony Van Hee in his constitutional challenge to Ontario's bubble zone law, Bill 163, Safe Access to Abortion Service Act.

As well, Dr. Jordan Peterson mentioned Fr. Tony's case in his June 10th newsletter when he referenced the recent article in the Ottawa Citizen on Fr. Tony's case:


Charged priest uses charter freedoms in strike at abortion bubble-zone law

"He is 83, tiny and, in the eyes of the law, a threat."
JBP: "Bubble Zone." Where the laws of the Dominion no longer apply?
It does seem to be the case as sad as that seems--that Canadians are forced to go to court to protect their freedom of speech rights.

As we already know, Fr. Tony's text for his signs were inspired from Jordan Peterson's talk at the Ottawa Public Library on March 11 or 12, 2017.

Here is something Fr. Tony wrote about his work for the Interim back in 1996. It is still applicable today:
"Randall Terry, founder and leader of Operation Rescue, prisoner for Christ and the child in the womb, along with Joan Andrews Bell, Linda Gibbons and all pro-life prisoners of a conscience, are such powerful witnesses.
A small but essential key to such outstanding service, however, is simply showing up “for work” each day.
If I’m not in my place when the right moment [comes] along, God has to wait for another right moment. 
As Mother Teresa said, I’m not asked to be successful, but to be faithful. “Paul plants, Apollo waters, but God gives the increase.” Faith, fidelity, courage, perseverance, are my part.”
"O my Jesus, You do not give a reward for the successful performance of a work, but for the good will and the labor undertaken. Therefore, I am completely at peace, even if all my undertakings and efforts should be thwarted or should come to naught. If I do all that is in my power, the rest is not my business. And therefore the greatest storms do not disturb the depths of my peace; the will of God dwells in my conscience." [Divine Mercy In My Soul, the Diary of St Faustina Kowalska, Marian Press, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, #952.]"

Dear Justin Trudeau you don't speak for us and never will

Dear Justin Trudeau,

When you met with Vice President Mike Pence this week you continued your compulsive habit of embarrassing Canadians. From my friend Jonathon Van Maren:
"His [Trudeau's] arrogance was on full display this week when he attempted to shoehorn a discussion on abortion into a meeting with Vice President Mike Pence on NAFTA and issues related to China. Trudeau was concerned about American “backsliding” on the issue and claimed that “Canadians” are also very concerned about it, even though this projection is primarily a figment of his imagination, where everyone constantly agrees with him. 
Trudeau is simply hoping to make abortion an election issue, and thus he pretended that the Vice President is able to address concerns about laws passed by state legislators, when in reality he was virtue-signalling to his base. Their exchange at a post-meeting press conference on Thursday, where Trudeau expressed his opposition to “anti-choice laws” and Pence reaffirmed his commitment to “the right to life,” was cringe-worthy on both a diplomatic and a human level."
And you continued to embarrass us when you said:
"There was a significant amount of concern amongst Canadians on the new anti-choice laws being passed in the American states and highlights the fact that Canadians and the government will always be a strong defender of women's rights and a woman's right to choose."
I am a Canadian. Stop saying you speak for me on abortion. You don't.

And the American pro-life people to whom you refer to, and their pro-life laws, are just that: pro-life. As are all Canadian pro-life people. If you insist on telling us that you speak for us when you do not, at least have the common courtesy and respect to call us what we are: pro-life. Your pro-abortion bias is catching up with you when you follow the dictates of leading Canadian pro-abortion advocate Joyce Arthur in calling us "anti-choice". 

This is rude behaviour and it is tiring. Stop it. 

For the record? Mike Pence is a hero for his and President Trump's support for the right to life. You could learn something from him.

I know you won't be our Prime Minister much longer, but in the meantime start showing some respect for pro-life Canadians. As the Prime Minister of Canada, you owe us at least that.
