Canada demands pro-abortion, pro-LGBT loyalty oath for businesses


December 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The tolerance of Justin Trudeau and his progressive government has struck again, just in time for Christmas—and this time, it comes in the form of a demand that any organization seeking to apply for funding from the Canada Summer Jobs Program first give an “attestation” that they support an entire laundry list of far-left causes, including abortion, transgenderism, and the redefinition of marriage. This new ideological purity test will automatically exclude millions of Canadian Christians, Jews, Sikhs, and Muslims—essentially, anyone who differs from the government position on any “progressive” cause.

Earlier this year, the Trudeau government responded to a campaign by pro-choice bloggers and the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada by announcing that pro-life groups (including, for full disclosure, the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, where I serve as communications director) would no longer be eligible for funding under the Canada Summer Jobs Program. The program was intended to create jobs for students, and any business or non-profit could hire students between the ages of 15 and 30. But any organization that dissents from Canada’s abortion regime—which permits the procedure throughout all nine months of pregnancy—were no longer eligible due to their pro-life beliefs.

Trudeau and his government of social justice warriors have evidently decided that their initial decision didn’t go far enough, and have now expanded this ridiculous ideological purity test to include the demand for a de facto loyalty oath to a progressive manifesto. The Canada Summer Jobs Program used to simply be a government initiative to give students a short-term paying job—now, it’s simply a funnel for the Liberals to award cash to their friends and others who subscribe to their very specific set of ideological beliefs. The government laid out their position quite clearly:

In order to receive federal Canada job grants, employers must attest that:

  • both the job and the organization’s core mandate respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as other rights. These include reproductive rights and the right to be free from discrimination on the basis of sex, religion, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.

It’s worth noting that most charity work in Canada is done by religious groups and churches. From homeless shelters to food banks, religious Canadians of all stripes do much to make the lives of their less fortunate neighbors better. Unfortunately for them, they will now be denied access to this government program—because the same religious beliefs that spur on their essential work also renders them ineligible. Aside from the United Church of Canada—which is far too busy selling off its abandoned churches to hire students, anyway—very few faith-based non-profits will be able to hire students through this program.

Justin Trudeau has created a two-tiered system—if you believe in abortion-on-demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy, if you believe in the brand-new gender ideologies currently sweeping through our institutions—basically, if you believe that fundamental tenets of nearly every major faith tradition are false, hateful, and discriminatory—then you are eligible for government funding. But if you’re not willing to attest to the government that you believe precisely the same things that they do on every issue, you’re out of luck.

URGENT: Tell Justin Trudeau you oppose this attack on freedom of conscience. Sign the petition and send a postcard here!

It’s truly repulsive that Canada’s Liberal government would inform millions of Canadians that if their beliefs differ from the current dogmas of the state, that they are not permitted to access the same opportunities offered to others. The intolerance of Liberal tolerance is truly a sight to behold: If you’re Muslim, or Sikh, or Jewish, or Christian—your organization is welcome to apply to the Canada Summer Jobs Program. But first, you simply have to provide a statement declaring that you hold all of the same positions as Justin Trudeau.
