  • Liberal leader Justin Trudeau says only Pro-Choice welcome in the Party

    Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says all candidates running for nomination to represent the Liberal Party in 2015 will have to support the party's pro-choice position, but that the same rule does not apply to sitting MPs.

    "I have made it clear that future candidates need to be completely understanding that they will be expected to vote pro-choice on any bills," Trudeau said Wednesday following his party's weekly caucus meeting in Ottawa.

    So Justin will not let people with different views on abortion in his party. So much for classical liberal values of tolerance.

    To be fair, if I was starting a political party, I would be pretty upfront about not wanting pro-choice candidates running under the banner. Maybe that makes me intolerant.

      He is going to lose some people, I hope.

      Many Libs, even if they are stupid enough to have elected The Shiny Pony as their leader, are anti-abortion.

      And, so much for doing what your constituents want instead of what the leader tells you to do.

      I really hate this country sometimes.

        Why did they make this loser party leader in the first place? Does he have anything to his name, other than his actual name?
        "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

        There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

          As I said, they are stupid.

            But do you consider tolerance one of your defining qualities?

              It's just baffling how Justin has now closed off his party to any vote on abortion. Abortion has been in legal limbo since the supreme court struck down the abortion provision in the criminal code. Right now Canada has no abortion law
              A lot of Canadians want some form of restrictions on abortion. Are the Liberals going to vote to keeps the status quo on all legislation. Are they going to vote no on late term restrictions or banning sex selection abortion.
              I guess we will see who in the liberal party will stick to their conviction.

                I wouldn't say I have ever hated my country, but there have been times I've been pretty durn disappointed in her leadership.

                  I know what you are saying. But the leadership and the people who elect them are what make up the country. And I don't really hate the people and the leadership, but I do hate the results of their sinful ways.

                      Yes, but I don't think that has to extend to tolerating evil.
