Do you have 2 minutes? Yes? Then contact your MP and tell them to vote no!

"A little-publicized Parliamentary motion by a Conservative Member of Parliament is attempting to undermine the new attestation requirement for the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program. Debated on March 1st in the House of Commons, the motion relies on a wrong interpretation of the attestation made in
bad faith.

...

The debate revealed not only that the Conservatives are exploiting the issue to attack the Liberal government, but that Conservative MPs are unnecessarily denying summer jobs to potentially thousands of students.

Conservative MP Karen Vecchio (Elgin-Middlesex-London) introduced the motion in Parliament on March 1.

It was debated for over two hours and will come to a vote on March 19."

"Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is defending his decision to appoint an MP who has not supported legalized abortions to sit as chair of the Commons committee of status on the women.

Liberals MPs, who have a majority on the committee, walked out of a meeting on Tuesday after Rachael Harder, the member of Parliament for Lethbridge, was named to the position. The status of women committee is one of the few Commons committees for which the Official Opposition appoints the chair."

"As well, the province says a physician’s referral will no longer be needed to obtain a surgical abortion at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax.

Kim Munroe, the Nova Scotia Health Authority’s director of ambulatory care, says the QEII has same-day appointments for any woman who requires an abortion.

“We are actually setting up a self-referral process as well, which will go hand-in-hand with this, but we currently provide same-day appointments for women who require an ...abortion service.”

Nova Scotia has been the only province in Canada that requires women to obtain a referral."

12 yr olds should be entitled to abortion care; that is not up for debate here.

The issue is that a 12 yr old girl who becomes pregnant should be referred to counselling, ESPECIALLY if she becomes pregnant again soon after.

Lawyer Lynn Moore doesn't believe anyone should be fired for the mishandling of a child abused by her stepfather — but hundreds should be hired.

"Lyndsey Butcher, executive director of the Shore Centre — formerly Planned Parenthood — said new legislation being drafted by Attorney General Yasir Naqvi is based on laws in other provinces, which mandate protesters must stay 50 metres away.

"Fifty metres only really pushes people ... across the street, and because patients are either walking into the clinic or are getting dropped off by taxis or by friends, they still tend to come into contact with protesters," Butcher said, noting a clinic in Toronto has a 150 metre rule and it seems to work really well."

A letter signed by eight advocacy groups is asking Ontario's Attorney General Yasir Naqvi to increase the safe zones around clinics and offices that offer abortion services from 50 metres — the norm in other provinces — to 150 metres.
