Did you get a letter from “Concerned Conservatives Ontario”?

The vote for a new leader of the Ontario PC Party began today and will end on Thursday.

Did you receive a letter this week from a group calling itself Concerned Conservatives Ontario? I received two. They are overtly pushing Christine Elliott. 

This is very fishy. I’m not on any political mailing lists nor am I a member of any party except the Ontario PCs since about a month ago. Since becoming a member, I’ve received letters from the party and from each candidate. That’s fine. But how did Concerned Conservatives Ontario get access to the membership database to send me these letters? 

From what I can tell, I’m not the only one to receive them.

Even more fishy is that the letters have no return address nor any contact info inside. They’re completely anonymous so that the originators can’t be caught. 

They’re clearly targeting uninformed social conservatives because the letters focus on issues like abortion, same-sex “marriage” and the sex-ed curriculum, while trying to portray Elliott as the strongest candidate on all these issues! Complete misinformation garbage.

Please let me know if you also received letters from Concerned Conservatives Ontario.

Raise a stink on Twitter, Facebook and any social media at your disposal.

Email Patrick Brown so he’s aware of the shenanigans going on.

Ottawa election : Consider Edward Conway in Somerset Ward

It can be really hard to choose a candidate for City Council. In Somerset Ward, which covers downtown Ottawa, we have 11 candidates running. That’s right, 11 options. And none of them are the incumbent. Brutal. What to do?

I don’t have much info on them. Life and family issues are not as prominent in municipal elections given the narrower powers of city governments. But they’re still very important.

I just read that Edward Conway is the only person at the all-candidates debate who declared opposition to a safe injection site in Ottawa, modelled after Vancouver’s site. That’s good.

Three of the 11 candidates are homosexuals and LGBT activists (downtown Ottawa is very left leaning). Denis Schryburt is a gay man and also a gay-community activist. Jeff Morrison is also gay  and a longtime advocate for the gay community. Catherine McKenney is a lesbian married to another woman. She has been active with the NDP in the past. Those values are too far at odds with mine for me to consider voting for them.

So until I hear something else, I’m voting for Edward Conway.

If you have info to share, please pass it along.

The Skinny On The Street Is That Justin Trudeau Is No Longer Receiving Communion

Big Blue Wave picked up on a story about Boy Wonder, Justin Trudeau, and his adolescent rebellion against his putative Catholic faith wherein he has no problem in being a pro-abort thug and imposing abortion over his MPs’ consciences.  In true liberal fashion, no liberal is concerned with this.  Carry on Justin, you’re being a fine thug for us. Keep up the good work.

The article in questions digs up past comments made by Auxiliary Bishop Christian Riesbeck :

Ottawa’s Auxiliary Bishop Christian Riesbeck has warned that there is a possibility that Canon Law 915 could be enforced against Justin Trudeau to deny him Holy Communion if he does not back off his decision to ban pro-life candidates from running for nominations to represent the Liberal Party of Canada in the next federal election. Canon Law states that those who are “obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion. “Out of concern for safeguarding the reverence that is due Our Lord in the Eucharist and to avoid scandal, one could possibly apply this norm even in the case of a pro-abortion Catholic politician who is extremely vocal about his position.” With an election looming on the horizon, Trudeau may find that there is more at stake to winning elections than simply glad-handing on the barbecue circuit or wowing the crowds with his dance moves at Pride parades, and that neither his celebrity status nor famous legacy buy him a free pass as a Catholic from the Church’s moral authority.

There’s no new comment here from +Riesbeck. It’s just old stuff. But, what is new is the first comment from the article in the combox by a guy who attends his parish in Montreal. This is what he said:

“…the argument is, I think academic, on the several occasions I have been with him at Mass, he did not receive communion.”

Now this is very interesting. Did the Boy Wonder choose out of his own volition to refrain from receiving Communion, or did his bishop or Bishop Riesbeck school him on what is expected of him?

It’s very possible that a compromise was reached:  “Justin, bud, this is your choice:  either refrain from receiving holy communion or the religious shtick you’ve been selling about being a good Catholic is going to be challenged by us.  Take your pick.”  This is, of course, speculation on my part, but it is very possible.

Regardless of what went down, this is some news which we should be spreading far and wide.  Some smart reporter out there should ask him to confirm whether he is receiving Communion or not.  And, if he isn’t, boy does the fun begin then!  Some crackerjack, ignoramus reporter could start the ball rolling with a question like this, for instance:

Uh, Justin, why aren’t you receiving Communion?  What could be the matter? Isn’t that kind of serious?  Doesn’t that mean yer goin’ to hell, er’ somethin’?

Pierre Trudeau Wouldn’t Make the Modern Liberal Party

“You know, at some point you are killing life in the foetus in self-defence – of what?  Of the mother’s health or her happiness or of her social rights or her privilege as a human being?  I think she should have to answer for it and explain.  Now, whether it should be to three doctors or one doctor or to a priest or a bishop or to her mother-in-law is a question you might want to argue …. You do have a right over your own body – it is your body.  But the foetus is not your body; it’s someone else’s body.  And if you kill it, you’ll have to explain.”

The Rt. Hon. Pierre E. Trudeau, PC, QC, MP Prime Minister of Canada The Montreal Star, Thursday, May 25, 1972

Poor, Pierre, he wouldn’t make the cut in the new Liberal Party. His son would kick him out.  Progressives eventually eat their own.

Hamilton Catholic School Board To Send Letter of Protest re: Justin Trudeau’s Abortion Stance

Board chairperson Pat Daly said he proposed writing a letter “of concerned protest” against Trudeau’s stance.

“Obviously that’s something that is of great concern to our board,” he said. “The trustees were unanimous in their support.”

He noted the letter would be sent on behalf of the board, but also all students and staff within the system who work hard to promote a “culture of life.”

Its website says the board’s Culture of Life committee aims to “support and enhance the education of students about issues around the beginning and end of life – particularly abortion and euthanasia.”

Two questions for the Ottawa Catholic School Board :

1. Shouldn’t they also write a letter of protest to Trudeau? After all, Archbishop Prendergast and Bishop Riesbeck have made a big deal of it, to their credit. They’ve also provided all the political cover required.

2. Does the OCSB have a Culture of Life committee or equivalent? I didn’t find one on the list posted on their website, although I understand that list may not be exhaustive. Seems like we could do more.

Justin Trudeau’s ‘Bozo eruption’

“I’ve had umpteen conversations with so many people about this. It’s driving me crazy,” he is heard saying in the audio recording obtained by CTV News.

“I initially thought it was a bozo eruption; that he didn’t actually think about what he said,” McKay said after he was asked about the abortion issue.

“But even more disturbing is that his brain trust might have actually thought about this, and if they did … it scares the hell out of me. If you don’t know this is a toxic issue for a population then you have no political sense whatsoever.” (Source)

Couldn’t have said it better myself.
