Canada is now discriminating against pro-life, pro-family employers. Tell them to stop!
The deadline to apply for the Canada Summer Jobs grant passed on February 9th. Nevertheless, public outcry over the liberal government's discriminatory attestation has continued. Churches, camps, community organizations, and businesses that disagree with the attestation on moral or religious grounds have all been denied funding - funding that they have received in previous years. Harsh criticism is being levelled both in the media and from opposition MPs.
On March 1st, a conservative motion was brought forth in the House of Commons challenging the attestation. This motion will be debated again on March 19th. We need to keep speaking out on this issue ahead of that debate. We have to keep the pressure on in the hopes that funding might be restored to those worthy groups that have been denied!
The Canadian federal government has now extended the deadline for the summer student job grants application to Friday, February 9th. That means we only have a few days left to get the government's attention! And a judge recently said that the anti-life, anti-family attestation must remain until a final decision is made in court later on. So far, the government has refused to budge, but 87 religious leaders have submitted a complaint.
Canadians should be alarmed. Signing this kind of attestation could be considered a blueprint for the future, conditioning eligibility for government jobs or the receipt of government benefits (pensions, healthcare, etc.) on conformity to the governing party's far-left views on abortion and sexuality.
Nevertheless, uproar is growing and backlash against this discriminatory policy is a real possibility. We need to keep the pressure on!
Can you urgently SIGN the petition, and SHARE it with your friends?
The Liberal Government has announced a new policy for employers receiving summer job grants for students: toe the line on abortion, same-sex marriage, and transgenderism—or else!
According to the policy adopted on December 19, 2017, to obtain grants under the Canada Summer Jobs Program employers must sign an affidavit affirming that:
Both the job and the organization’s core mandate respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as other rights. These include reproductive rights and the right to be free from discrimination on the basis of sex, religion, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.
The new policy excludes Christian employers and other employers with traditional views about life, marriage, and sex from obtaining grants to employ students for the summer.
This is despite the fact that millions of Canadians share these traditional views. Churches, faith-based charities, and all sorts of religiously affiliated groups that serve orphans, widows, migrants, and refugees are now being denied funding because of their religious beliefs.
Not only that, it creates an official policy of discrimination on the basis of political viewpoint—disfavoring those who disagree with the Liberal government's radical social agenda.
Different views than Justin Trudeau's Liberals? Then as an employer, you won't be able to apply for the Canada Summer Jobs Program, thus, no funding. pic.twitter.com/Fgdm0ZIjMA

This is just another dangerous example of how the government is discriminating against people of faith who affirm traditional views on life and sexual morality.
Tell the government that you won't stand for this new policy, and demand that they revoke it immediately. Sign the petition to send a message to the Hon. Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour! An email copy of the petition text with your signature is delivered to the Minister immediately upon signing.
