Party Leader Report Cards - From The Interim

Stephen Harper, Conservative Party Leader

Grade = C+

Answered the 1993 Campaign Life Coalition questionnaire as effectively "pro-choice" and he supports the party's policy convention decision committing a Conservative government to not bringing in legislation restricting abortion.

He voted for traditional marriage and allowed reconsideration of the same-sex" marriage" issue with a free vote, although it was defeated.

In 2010, the Conservative government launched a maternal health initiative for the G8 and held firm against political pressure from the opposition which tried to force abortion funding to be included. Beginning in 2010, the Conservative government ceased operational funding for International Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the world, although pro-abortion groups are still funding on a project-by-project basis. Opposes euthanasia.

While the other mainline party leaders have both banned pro-life Canadians from running as candidates in their parties, Stephen Harper has, at least for the time being, expressly stated that all Canadians with diverse points of view, are welcome under the Conservative tent.

Thomas Mulcair, NDP Leader

Grade = F

Unabashedly pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and has made public statements which suggest he supports legalizing euthanasia and assisted suicide.

Justin Trudeau, Liberal Leader

Grade = F

Liberal leader Justin Trudeau seems bent on moving his party to a more radical position on abortion and other moral issues.

He supports abortion-on-demand and believes it should be a "protected right". In May 2014, he announced, without consulting with his own caucus, that all future candidates must agree to vote in favour of abortion. He later suggested that even the few pro-life Liberal MPs who are currently elected, would have to violate their own consciences and vote in favour of an act they believe to be evil. 

Trudeau told a french-language radio broadcaster that he would consider separating Quebec from Canada if Stephen Harper were to ever restore the true definition of marriage, or make abortion illegal. One of Trudeau's main priorities is to make pot legal, a truly reckless policy given that marijuana is a gateway drug to harder drugs like heroine and crack.

Gilles Duceppe, Bloc Quebecois Leader

Grade = F

Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe supports abortion-on-demand, euthanasia, and same-sex "marriage." During the 2004 campaign that he would bring down a Conservative minority government (if one had been elected) if it tried to restrict abortion.

 

Rod Taylor, Christian Heritage Party Leader

Grade = A

Is unequivocally pro-life and supports the true definition of marriage. Supports pro-family tax policies.

 

Elizabeth May, Green Party Leader

Grade = F

Supports abortion and homosexual "marriage". She has repeatedly called for abortion to be included in maternal health initiatives abroad. In July 2015 she even signed onto an international declaration that called upon Canada to adopt a 2-child policy, similar to that enforced by the Chinese communist dictatorship where forced abortions and female gendercide are common.
