- Religious Freedom
Last Wednesday, we got another glimpse of the intolerance and viciousness that is at the heart of far too many left-wingers in this country.
Each year there is a pro-life march in Ottawa and the City of Ottawa has issued the requisite ‘pro-life proclamation’.
This year, Ottawa city also approved the raising of the pro-life flag at city hall – as they do with so many causes, however popular or obscure.
Well, that got the attention of some who could not have their beliefs challenged. Several city councillors wrote a poorly worded and factually incorrect letter attacking the flag raising and intimidated the city administration into removing the flag.
Isn’t this becoming all too common? An onslaught from the left, screaming and yelling that something is intolerable just because they don’t agree with it.
The strength of our democracy is that Canadians have freedom to hold their opinions and to express them, especially if we disagree.
Intimidation such as we saw in Ottawa last week is unacceptable and needs to be condemned far more strongly than a group of people who were peacefully trying to highlight important pro-life issues.
