Trudeau stance undemocratic
To the Editor,
On May 8, as I was watching CTV News I heard Justin Trudeau declare that the Liberal Party will not accept candidates who harbour pro life views. This viewpoint did not surprise me. He supports abortion, same sex marriage, contraception, legalized marijuana, euthanasia, assisted suicide and use of swear words.
Justin Trudeau, the so called “Catholic” politician, and other “so called” Christian political officials continue to oppose the church’s most important teaching on the sanctity of human life and sexuality.
Justin Trudeau’s personal beliefs and his actions to not support pro life candidates in the Liberal party are not in alignment with the party itself or the Catholic church’s teaching.
Canada is a democratic country and individuals, pro life or pro choice, should be allowed to run and serve in parliament. It is unconstitutional and undemocratic to disavow someone from being a part of a political party simply because they oppose a highly controversial topic.
I would recommend that people, both in or outside of the Liberal party, not support Trudeau’s stance on not allowing people with different viewpoints to be a part of this political party.
