MP Rick Perkins
Conservative Party, South Shore - St. Margarets, NS
During the meeting, MP Perkins seemed incapable of understanding why Canadians need to be protected from the Trudeau Liberals' ever-expanding euthanasia regime. In fact, under euthanasia expansion Bill C-7, which passed in March 2021, the largely-symbolic "safeguard" of a waiting period prior to a euthanasia killing being carried out was eliminated, and the number of witnesses required to observe a third party signing a euthanasia request was reduced. In addition, Bill C-7 allowed the assisted suicide of people experiencing mental illness ALONE, without any physical health problem or ailment whatsoever.
MP Perkins also failed to grasp the scientifically irrefutable fact that human life begins at conception.
Here is Rick Perkins's voting record relating to life and family issues:
|Votes, Surveys and Policy Decision||Vote||Score|
|Motion 41 - a second attempt to end coercive federal Covid vaccine mandates
This pro-freedom Motion, made by Conservative Party MP Michael Barrett, called on the Trudeau Liberal government to immediately lift all federal vaccine mandates, which have resulted in the termination of thousands of federally regulated employees, restrictions on the rights of Canadians to travel freely, and impediments to the free flow of goods across the Canadian border. This principled, scientifically-based, and freedom-defending Motion was tragically defeated on March 24, 2022 by a vote of 212 against to 117 in favour.
|Bill C-11, to apply censorship & total government control over the internet, 3rd reading
This bill was written to end free speech on the internet, and to give the Trudeau Liberals soviet-style, authoritarian control over the information Canadians are allowed to read, see and hear. It places all internet and social media content under the bureaucratic control of the biased, far-left CRTC (Candian Radio-television & Telecommunications Commission). This law gives the agency the power to take down content that Liberals don't like, ban users who post it, and enforce algorithms that move Marxist left-wing content to the top of search results and suggested social media posts, thus cementing the power of government to indoctrinate the public, to bury Liberal scandals and keep corruption out of sight of Canadians, and even to influence elections to favour the Liberals. Christian, pro-life and conservative content will certainly be supressed and, in many cases, automatically blocked by algorithms. Bill C-11 passed on June 21, 2022 by a vote of 208 Yeas to 117 Nays.
|Bill C-311 - 2nd Reading, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (violence against pregnant women)
A principled bill introduced by stalwart pro-life Conservative MP Cathay Wagantall, C-311 sought to establish in law that knowingly assaulting a pregnant woman and causing physical or emotional harm to a pregnant woman are to be considered aggravating circumstances for sentencing purposes. This modest protection for pregnant women and acknowledgement of their special status as expectant mothers was supported by the entire Conservavite caucus, but was defeated along predictable party lines by Justin Trudeau's pro-abortion Liberal government and the other left-wing parties at 2nd reading on June 14, 2023 by a vote of 205 - 113.
|Opposition Motion: Opioid Crisis - Motion calling on the Trudeau Liberal government to reverse it's hard-drug decriminalization experiment in BC and instead fund addiction treatment and recovery programs.
This sensible and compassionate Opposition Motion, sponsored by Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre, called on the Justin Trudeau Liberal government to reverse it's disastrous 2022 policy that decriminalized all hard drugs in the province of British Columbia. Under the Liberal scheme, there are now no arrests, charges or seizures for personal possession of up to 2.5 grams of highly-addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin, or for potentially lethal opioids like fentanyl. The resulting increase in opioid deaths seems not to have deterred the Trudeau Liberals from continuing to push their "safe injection" ideology, as they have committed another $74 million to further entrench and intensify their experimental program. Sadly, this rational and laudable Conservative Motion was defeated on May 29, 2023 by a completely partisan vote of 209 - 113, with only the Conservatives suppporting the Motion, while the Liberals and all the other left-wing parties - NDP, Bloc Quebecois, and Green - opposed it.
|Absent or abstained||--|
|Motion to end coercive vaccine mandates
This pro-freedom Motion, introduced by the Conservative Party's Interim Leader Candice Bergen, called on the Trudeau Liberal government to table a plan for ending its punitive, unscientific, and cruel Covid restrictions - including the mandating of abortion-tainted Covid vaccines - by February 28, 2022. Shamefully, the Motion was defeated on February 14, 2022 by a vote of 185 against to 151 in favour.
|Emergencies Act: To grant Justin Trudeau totalitarian, police state powers so that he could shut down a peaceful protest against unconstitutional federal mandates forcing Canadians to take abortion-tainted COVID injections, regardless of conscientious objections.
The Emergencies Act (i.e. martial law), was used to shut down a peaceful freedom protest by blue collar workers in Ottawa. Trudeau seized the bank accounts of hundreds of peaceful protesters without due process, arrested them, and ordered police action which saw protestors trampled by horses, shot with rubber bullets, beaten with batons, and pepper sprayed while peacefully demanding the return of their rights and freedoms after 2 years of government oppression. Sadly, it passed by a vote of 185 to 151 on February 21, 2022.
