Listen to this week’s radio commentary below:
The more things change, the more they stay the same. When we left Ottawa in December, the Liberals had just announced that the Canada student Summer Jobs Program would not be open to anyone who would not sign an ‘attestation’, pledging to support this Liberal government’s values.
When the Canadian public rebelled, the Liberals supposedly backed up, with Justin Trudeau saying no organization would be punished. But he continues to require the declaration be signed and now it has been added to other government programs.
Exclusion in every society begins in small ways. For a century, Canadians have worked towards inclusion and acceptance. When the Liberals got elected, they were obligated to protect all Canadians’ rights.
They are failing – they are specializing in dividing Canadians, and it is ironic that the one who is always throwing around the word ‘equality’ is the same one who has initiated the exclusion of Canadians based not on anything they have done, but on their beliefs. This is not a good road to start down.
