CLC rating: Pro-life, pro-family
Rating Comments: In June 2021, this MP rightly voted in favour of pro-life Bill C-233, introduced by Conservative MP Cathay Wagantall, to outlaw the horrific practice of sex-selective abortion, in which unborn babies are killed for no other reason than their sex.

Also in June 2021, this principled MP voted against Justin Trudeau’s parental prosecution bill, C-6, which seeks to put parents in jail up to 5 years if they dare to affirm their gender-confused child in their biological sex.

MP Williamson has a perfect voting record on life & family issues as an MP.

Votes, Surveys and Policy Decision Vote Score
Bill C36, third reading: To protect exploited persons from prostitution by criminalizing pimps and the purchase of human beings for sex.
After the black-robed activists who sit on the bench of the Supreme Court of Canada struck down our Criminal Code prohibitions against prostitution, the Conservative government put forward this new legislation, modelled on the successful nordic law, to protect women from prostitution and the degradation of communities. The bill passed by a vote of 156 to 124. It is shameful that 124 Members of Parliament voted to protect the evil, exploitative practice of prostitution. [October 6, 2014]

Bill C-6 - 2nd Reading, to criminalize parents, psychotherapy & spiritual guidance for unwanted sexual feelings
Vote on taking away the right of people who experience UNWANTED gender identity confusion or homosexual attraction to be able to obtain clinical therapy or pastoral counseling to help them live according to their faith or to overcome the unwanted sexual feelings. This unconstitutional bill also jails parents up to 5 years for providing body-affirming counselling to their sexually-confused children, or for discouraging a gay lifestyle in contradiction with the family’s religious faith. The totalitarian bill passed 2nd Reading by a vote of 305 to 7 on October 28, 2020.
Absent --
Bill C-233 - 2nd Reading, to criminalize sex-selective abortion.
This principled bill, introduced by pro-life Conservative MP Cathay Wagantall, sought to protect all babies in the womb from being killed by abortion specifically because of their sex. Sex-selective abortion is typically committed in cultures that favour male children over female, and is a form of femicide. Despite support from 68% of Conservative Party MPs for this modicum of protection for the unborn, Bill C-233 was defeated on June 2, 2021 at 2nd Reading by a vote of 248 to 82, with all attending members of the rabidly pro-abortion Liberal, NDP, Green, and Bloc Québécois parties voting unanimously against it.

Bill C-6 - 3rd Reading, to criminalize parents, psychotherapy & spiritual guidance for unwanted sexual feelings
Vote on taking away the right of people who experience UNWANTED gender identity confusion or homosexual attraction to be able to obtain clinical therapy or pastoral counseling to help them live according to their faith or to overcome the unwanted sexual feelings. This unconstitutional bill also jails parents up to 5 years for providing body-affirming counselling to their sexually-confused children, or for discouraging a gay lifestyle in contradiction with the family’s religious faith. The totalitarian bill passed 3rd Reading by a vote of 263 to 63 on June 22, 2021.
Opposed ok
Bill C-7 - 2nd Reading, to expand euthanasia to target more vulnerable people
Vote on making it easier for patients to be killed by their doctors by expanding the definition of those eligible to access medical murder. Bill C-7 would eliminate even the "safeguard" of a waiting period prior to a euthanasia killing being carried out, and would reduce the number of witnesses required to observe a third party signing a euthanasia request from two witnesses to only one. In addition, Bill C-7 would not require the immediate consent of persons presently incapable of communicating but who had been previously approved for euthanasia; and would also make those whose death is not even reasonably foreseeable eligible to be killed if they experience what they subjectively consider to be "intolerable" physical or even psychological suffering. This death-liberalization bill passed 2nd Reading by a vote of 246 to 78 on October 29, 2020.

Bill C-7 - 4th Reading, to expand euthanasia to target more vulnerable people
Vote on making it easier for patients to be killed by their doctors by expanding the definition of those eligible to access medical murder. Bill C-7 would eliminate even the "safeguard" of a waiting period prior to a euthanasia killing being carried out, and would reduce the number of witnesses required to observe a third party signing a euthanasia request from two witnesses to only one. In addition, Bill C-7 would not require the immediate consent of persons presently incapable of communicating but who had been previously approved for euthanasia; and would also make those whose death is not even reasonably foreseeable eligible to be killed if they experience what they subjectively consider to be "intolerable" physical or even psychological suffering. After the House of Commons passed Bill C-7 at 3rd Reading in December 2020, the Senate reviewed the bill and, incredibly, made the bill even worse by amending it to permit the killing of non-communicative patients who had previously given advance directives concerning euthanasia (even years before), and to allow the assisted suicide of people experiencing mental illness ALONE, without any physical health problem or ailment whatsoever. Although the final passage of the Bill in the House of Commons at 4th Reading rejected the terrible "advance directive" amendment by the Senate, it did accept the evil principle of assisted suicide for the mentally ill who are not dying or even experiencing any physical suffering. Bill C-7 brings the Trudeau Liberals' euthanasia fetish one step closer to suicide-on-demand. This death-liberalization bill passed 4th Reading by a vote of 180 to 149 on March 11, 2021.
Opposed ok
Bill C-10 - 3rd Reading, to establish totalitarian Internet Censorship
This legislation by the Justin Trudeau Liberals is reminiscent of the actions of past Communist and Nazi regimes to eradicate the free speech rights of the Party’s political or ideological opponents, and thus establish a total dictatorship. Bill C-10 would impose government censorship over the internet, allowing the Liberal government to censor any conservative or Christian speech with which Justin Trudeau disagrees. The Trudeau Liberals would achieve this by placing the entirety of the Canadian internet under the bureaucratic auspices of the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission). The CRTC will then regulate the internet’s content for diversity, prioritizing “Canadians from racialized communities and Canadians of diverse ethnocultural backgrounds, socio-economic statuses, abilities and disabilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and ages.” This would apply both to websites and social media posts. With the eager complicity of the NDP, Bloc Québécois, and Green parties, Bill C-10 passed 3rd Reading by 196 Yea votes to 112 Nay votes on June 22, 2021.
Opposed ok
Bill C-304, 2nd Reading - to repeal the censorship provision (Sect 13) of the Canadian Human Rights Act
This clause enables Human Rights Tribunals to abuse their power by acting as 'thought police' to opress freedom of speech and freedom of conscience. They usually target Christians who hold to biblical moral teachings, especially in the area of homosexuality. For example, the Catholic Bishop of Calgary was dragged before an HRC kangaroo court for merely issuing a pastoral letter in which he reiterated his Church's teaching against homosexual conduct. This vote passed 158-131. (Feb 15, 2012 )
Yes ok
Bill C279 - 2nd reading, to add "gender identity" and "gender expression" to the Human Rights Act and Criminal Code.
This radical private members bill by NDP Randal Garrison would invent a counterfeit right to "gender expression" and "gender identity" in the Canadian Human Rights Act. Dubbed "the bathroom bill" by critics, this change in law would put women and young girls at greater risk from bathroom attacks by sexual predators and from peeping toms. It will create a legal right for men who identify as the opposite sex, to use female washrooms and change rooms - a form of "gender expression". Critics point out this radical departure from social norms will provide a convenient excuse for male sexual predators to get in close quarters with potential female victims by cross-dressing or pretending to be "transgendered". It would also create a legal nightmare for businesses and Christian charities that would be required to allow staff to cross-dress in the work place. Furthermore, this would harm youth by cooperating with mental illness and encouraging sexually-confused young men to perceive themselves as women, and vice versa. It will also open the door for radical activists to insist that transgenderism & transsexualism must be inserted in school curriculum and taught in classrooms as something that is normal, natural and healthy. [Vote June 6, 2012 - passed 150 to 132]
No ok
Motion 312: Studying Canada's 400 Year Old Definition of Human Being
Motion 312 (sponsored by MP Stephen Woodworth) called for parliament to review Subsection 223(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada which states that a child becomes a human being only at the moment of complete birth.
