CLC rating: Pro-abortion, anti-free speech
Rating Comments: In a betrayal of our constitutional right to free speech, freedom of assembly, and the right to protest, Wilson voted in favour a draconian Liberal bill to establish "No Free Speech Zones" around all Ontario abortion facilities.

The unconstitutional Bill 163, which became law, bans pro-life witness and free speech on taxpayer-owned, public sidewalks within a radius of up to 150 metres of every abortuary in Ontario. It will put peaceful, pro-life sidewalk counsellors and demonstrators in jail for 6 months, along with the possibility of a $5000 fine for the first "offense". This law will directly result in the deaths of many more preborn children who could have been saved by pro-life sidewalk counsellors, as so many thousands have been over the years.

In 1995 Jim supported restoring parental rights over minor children getting abortions, as well as informed consent laws to make women aware of the potential health risks of abortion. Since that time however, Jim has not publicly supported any pro-life activities.

Jim has also publicly stated his erroneous belief that the Canada Health Act requires the provinces to fund the killing of preborn children as a "medical necessity". That's a surprising belief given he was once the Health Minister. He ought to know better because that claim is totally false. In fact, the Canada Health Act never says that abortion is medically necessary, nor that abortion must be insured. MPPs unequivocally have the power to defund medically unnecessary, elective abortions, so Wilson is just plain wrong.

Wilson has also been caught making false claims about opposition to the Wynne/Levin sex-ed curriculum by his own constituents, suggesting there's no significant opposition. In October 2015, he stated publicly that he has only ever received 3 emails from constituents opposed to the radical sex curriculum. That's not true at all. CLC is aware of at least 24 different emails sent to Wilson, by his Simcoe-Grey constituents. We're aware of that because his constituents either forwarded the emails to us or BCC'd us on the communication! Is MPP Wilson lying? Or maybe his office staff has been censoring his emails? What makes his assertion even more dubious is the fact that a protest was held on September 2, 2015 OUTSIDE HIS CONSTITUENCY OFFICE. In fact, the local organizer requested that MPP Wilson be present on that day so they could deliver a short speech to him outlining their concerns with the curriculum. The rally's Team Leader reported: "I have been told by the staff member at Jim Wilsons office that neither Jim Wilson, nor any staff member would be present at the rally". Even the local newspaper covered the protest at MPP Wilson's office, here, http://tinyurl.com/oy7npzn . Therefore, the MPP's claim that there's no opposition to the curriculum in his riding is a bizarre statement to make. How many protests take place outside his office? Very few we'd imagine, highlighting the fact that this is an important issue to his constituents indeed. Not only that, but constituents felt it was insulting that the MPP refused to let even a staff representative come outside during the rally, to hear the parental concerns.

Here is Jim Wilson's voting record relating to life and family issues:

Votes, Surveys and Policy Decision Vote Score
Bill 13, 3rd reading, which radically sexualized the school curriculum and forced all Catholic & Public schools to accept homosexual-activist clubs
Officially called The Accepting Schools Act, this bill which became law, forced Catholic schools to accepts student gay pride clubs known as GSAs, even over the objection and constitutional rights of Ontario's Catholic bishops. The law also injected radical sexual theories into the curriculum to be taught at the earliest grades. These sexual theories include "gender identity", the disputed notion that a child’s gender is not necessarily connected to their physical anatomy and that it’s perfectly normal for little boys to think they’re little girls; and the 6-gender theory which teaches children that there are 6 diffeerent genders (LGBTTIQ theory), not just male & female. All this was done under the deceptive ruse that these changes were necessary to reduce bullying and punish bullies. The bill also embeds a biased, anti-Christian slur into the curriculum designed to label all people of faith who adhere to traditional biblical norms of human sexuality as if they were "hateful" or "bigoted". Unfortunately, this bill was passed on June 4, 2013 by a vote of 65 to 36, despite parental protests that took place in the streets, at Queens Park and outside MPP consituency offices.
No ok
Bill 77, 2nd reading, to make it illegal for psychologists and therapists to be able to provide help to individuals who experience unwanted same-sex attraction or unwanted gender identity confusion, even if the patient is desperately seeking that therapy.
Bill 17, "The Affirming Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Act, 2015", introduced by New Democratic Party MPP Cheri DiNovo, a minister of the United Church of Canada, bans “any practice that seeks to change or direct the sexual orientation or gender identity of a patient under 18 years of age, including efforts to change or direct the patient’s behaviour or gender expression.” This Bill would prohibit “change” therapy, a form of cognitive psychotherapy that treats unwanted feelings through exploratory conversations between therapist and client intended to understand the childhood causes of the unwanted feelings. In justifying her sweeping Bill, DiNovo declared, “We will not tolerate questionable practices that attempt to suppress people’s true identities,” thus presuming by rhetoric alone that homosexual impulses reveal, rather than undermine, a person's "true identity". [2nd reading passed 52 to 0 on April 2, 2015]
Absent or abstained --
Bill 13, 2nd reading, the so-called "Accepting Schools Act" which sexualized the school curriculum and forced homosexual-activist clubs on Catholic and Public schools
This bill which ultimately became law, forced Catholic schools to accepts student gay pride clubs known as GSAs, even over the objection and constitutional rights of Ontario's Catholic bishops. The law also injected radical sexual theories into the curriculum to be taught at the earliest grades. These sexual theories include "gender identity", the disputed notion that a child’s gender is not necessarily connected to their physical anatomy and that it’s perfectly normal for little boys to think they’re little girls; and the 6-gender LGBTTIQ theory which teaches children that there are 6 different genders, not just male & female.

Unfortunately, this bill was passed on June 4, 2013 by a vote of 65 to 36, despite parental protests that took place in the streets at Queens Park and outside MPP consituency offices. [2nd reading passed 66 to 33 on May 3, 2013]
No ok
Bill 150, to eliminate voter fraud in internal party elections, second reading
This bill, officially called the ‘Ensuring Transparency and Integrity in Political Party Elections Act’, aimed to eliminate the voter fraud, ballot-box stuffing, falsified ballots and other rigging of votes that has been commonplace in the PC Party of Ontario with respect to candidate nomination elections, Party President and Executive Committee votes, wherein the party establishment cheats in order to rig the vote for its preferred candidate, or to block candidates they do not like. Those who oppose this bill can only object because they wish to continue conducting voter fraud. Passed 2nd reading Dec 12, 2019 by a vote 95-0.
Absent or abstained --
Bill 28, 3rd reading, which banned the words “mother” and “father” from Ontario law and socially-engineered the family such that children can now have up to 4 legal parents, none of them blood-related
Bill 28, third reading: Styled with the deceptive, slogan-like title "All Families Are Equal Act", this Marxist-inspired bill radically redefines society’s understanding of what a ‘family’ is. It undermines the parent-child relationship between natural parents and their biological offspring. The Liberal government bill erases the words “mother” and “father” from all provincial laws and government records, including birth certificates, and will thus have a harmful trickledown effect of purging the use of “mother” and “father” from our collective vocabulary throughout the rest of society, including but not limited to school curriculum, charities, and employer “speech codes”. In a stunning piece of social engineering that will produce immense harm to children, the bill also creates situations in which children can have 4 or more legal parents. Another foreseeable, adverse effect of legalizing 4-parent situations for children, is that it will help bring about the legalization of polygamy. [Passed 79-0 with 28 abstentions, Nov 29/16]
Yes bad
Bill 84, 3rd reading, to legalize the form of homicide known as euthanasia, and to falsely redefine it as a form of ‘medical treatment’ within Ontario’s health care system
Euphemistically named the "Medical Assistance in Dying Statute Law Amendment Act, 2017", Bill 84 codifies the Ontario Liberal government's abandonment of medical professionals who are being coerced by the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons (OCPS) into complicity with assisted suicide killings. The OCPS is forcing physicians who conscientiously object to this homicidal practice to make "effective referrals" for assisted suicide, meaning that if a physician is unwilling to kill his patient, he must refer that patient to a physician who is willing to do the killing, while the Ontario Liberal government does nothing to protect the conscientious physician from such coercion. [Passed 61-26 with 20 abstained or absent, May 9/17]
No ok
Bill 129, 2nd reading, to protect the conscience rights of health care workers from being compelled to participate in euthanasia and other practices they deem to be unethical
The "Regulated Health Professions Amendment Act (Freedom of Conscience in Health Care), 2017" was introduced by PC MPP Jeff Yurek. This well-meaning bill aimed to strike a balance between the Wynne Liberals' Bill 84 (euphemistically named "Medical Assistance in Dying Statute Law Amendment Act, 2017") which regulates the practice of medical homicide in Ontario, on the one hand, and the conscience rights of healthcare professionals who refuse to put their patients to death, on the other. The defeat at 2nd reading of Bill 129 illustrates the Wynne Liberals' insideous determination to give free reign to the pro-assisted suicide Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons, which is forcing Ontario physicians, regardless of their conscientious beliefs, to be complicit in the homicidal practice of Assisted Suicide through making "effective referrals". This means if a physician is unwilling to kill his patient, he must refer that patient to a physician who is willing to do the killing. [Defeated 23-39 with 44 abstained or absent, May 9/17]
Yes ok
Bill 89, 2nd reading, to give Children’s Aid agencies the power to ban Christian and other faith-based couples from adopting children, and the additional power to seize biological children from parents who disagree with LGBT and transgender ideologies.
Bill 89, introduced by Liberal MPP Michael Coteau, Minister of Children and Youth Services, under the disarming title of "Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017", actually gives the Ontario government and its “child protection” agencies, sweeping new powers to scrutinize and investigate families for having a Christian world view with regards to traditional marriage & human sexuality, and for not bowing down to the LGBT ideological agenda. Bill 89 empowers government agencies to seize children from their parents - using the pretense of serving the "best interests, protection and well-being of children" - if the parents refuse to affirm a homosexual “orientation” or the delusion that a child’s "gender" is opposite to their real, biological sex . This totalitarian bill would also subject potential adoptive or fostering parents to interrogations regarding their attitudes on LGBT ideology, as a litmus test for their suitability to become parents, leading to the disqualification of those who won't conform to the state's leftist world view. [Passed 83-0 with 23 abstained or absent, March 9/17]

No ok
Bill 163, 2nd reading, to create unconstitutional, 'No Free Speech Zones' on public sidewalks near abortion facilities, and to criminalize life-saving, peaceful, pro-life witness
This unconstitutional bill by the Kathleen Wynne Liberal government aims to violate our fundamental rights to freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, and the right to protest. It creates "No Free Speech Bubble Zones" across Ontario, of between 50-150 metres outside every abortuary and hospital where children are killed in-utero. Pro-life Canadians who pray peacefully outside the killing centres, or who hold a sign - even silentely, or who offer pregnant women a pamphlet with scientific facts about prenatal development, will be considered serious criminals and face 6 months in prison plus up to a $5000 fine for the first offence, with a second offence escalating to 1 year in prison plus $10,000 fine that is clearly to intimidate Canadians with financial ruin. Sadly, second reading passed by a vote of 85 Ayes to 1 Nay, on October 17, 2017, with shameful support by the alleged "Opposition", the "pretend conservative" Patrick Brown PC's.

Jim Wilson

Here are quotes from Jim Wilson on various life and family issues:

On bill 109 which robbed parents of rightful authority over their children by lowering the age of consent for medical treatment to 14 years old:  "Keep your hands off our children....To establish in law an age of consent which permits and will encourage a child to go outside the family and to act independently of his or her parents, especially in matters which pertain directly to the family as an institution ... is to undermine the responsibilities and to attack the rights of the family." [Ontario Hansard, Dec. 7, 1992]

Presented a petition against proposed anti-family legislation:  "'Bill 45 will change the meaning of the words 'spouse' and 'marital status' by removing the words 'of the opposite sex.' This will redefine the family as we know it. We believe that there will be an enormous negative impact on our society, both morally and economically, over the long term if fundamental institutions such as marriage are redefined to accommodate homosexual special-interest groups... Therefore, we request that the House refrain from passing Bill 45.' I have signed that petition." [Ontario Hansard, Apr. 14, 1994]

On the right of Catholic hospitals to govern according to Catholic principles:  "Catholic hospitals feel their future existence is jeopardized by proposed changes to governance of hospitals and the desire to democratize hospital boards is simply a ploy by the government to put its philosophical stamp on hospitals." [Ontario Hansard, debate during a Public Hospitals Act proposed by the ruling NDP government, Jun. 17, 1992]

On the Ontario Liberal government's radical Sex-Ed curriculum:  "After the Minister of Research and Innovation said that parents opposed to sex ed being taught to their six-year-olds were homophobes, both the Premier and the Minister of Education refused to say that he was wrong. Will the Minister of Education finally stand up today and condemn the comments from the Minister of Research and Innovation?" [Ontario Hansard, Mar. 9, 2011]

On the correlation between breast cancer and abortion:  "I am grateful to you for taking the time to write me and for making me aware of Dr. Joel Brind's important research which suggests that the increase of abortions has caused a noticeable increase in breast cancer cases worldwide. I certainly agree with your assertion that women have a right to be informed of this late-breaking research and that more studies need to be undertaken to shed light on Dr. Brind's findings." [Letter to Alliance For Life, Dec 21, 1993]
