Second Liberal MP denounces Summer Jobs abortion-rights clause, says it misrepresents the Charter

OTTAWA — In a letter to an employer in his Ontario riding, a Liberal MP says his own government is wrongly invoking the Charter of Rights and Freedoms on its controversial Canada Summer Jobs attestation, and calls the whole thing “regrettable” and a “lamentable state of affairs.”

The newly added clause requires applicants for the grant program to declare their core mandate respects “the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms,” and goes on to specifically mention reproductive rights, which means access to abortions.

Justin believes he was fated to lead. He is delusional, he is a fool and that makes him dangerous. This is governance by insult.
