A Conservative Senator was accused this week of being a “bigot” simply for requesting adequate time to study and prepare speaking notes for debating Bill C-16, the Trudeau government’s “transgender rights” bill that we informed you about in a recent email.
The bill amends the Canadian Human Rights Act to add “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination, and also amends the Criminal Code to add “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the list of protections in the Code.
If C-16 is passed, individuals who disagree with or don’t subscribe to gender theory could face criminal charges. If passed, it will have an impact on freedom of speech, as well as having implications for families, children and parental rights.
Dr. Jordan Peterson, a University of Toronto professor has been sounding the alarm over this bill for several months now.
This bill was rushed through the House of Commons last fall without any public hearings. Now, attempts are being made to rush it through the Senate, via ugly mudslinging tactics like calling a Senator a bigot.
Senator Don Plett, who was the victim of the mudslinging, stated that, "We as an opposition, need to exercise our democratic right, and need to make sure things are done in the right way."
What can you do?
We need to ensure that there's true opposition to these politically correct, anti-family threats. We need politicians to speak up.
There’s a Federal Conservative Party of Canada Leadership campaign going on right now. On May 27th party members will vote to decide who will be their new leader. PAFE has met with some of the leadership candidates and we’ve been keeping a close eye on this race. There are a few candidates who are supportable.
The result of this federal race has serious implications for our families. Parental rights and the well-being of children are under attack in this country, and we need leaders who support our fight.
We strongly urge you to take out a membership for the Conservative Party of Canada so that you will be eligible to vote for a pro-parental rights and pro-family candidate. In order to be eligible to vote in this leadership contest, you must take out a membership by March 28th 2017.
