Toronto, March 12, 2015- Campaign Life Coalition Youth (CLCY) and the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR) are launching the biggest pro-life campaign in the history of Canada against Liberal leader Justin Trudeau and what they call his “extremist position” on abortion. The #NO2Trudeau Campaign kicks off at the University of Victoria tomorrow, the first stop in a nation-wide speaking tour that will cross nine provinces from coast to coast with the goal of activating grassroots activists to distribute one million pieces of literature in ridings across the country, mass phone calling, and election volunteering.
“For the first time in Canadian history, we have the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada forcing his entire caucus to hold his personal views on abortion” said Alissa Golob, Youth Coordinator for CLC and one of the campaign’s main organizers. “Not only that, but Justin Trudeau is ignoring and discriminating against the majority of Canadians who support abortion restrictions, by proclaiming they are not welcome to run for the Liberal Party of Canada.”
“We plan on revitalizing pro-lifers and begin the creation of a new pro-life consensus in Canada,” said Jonathon Van Maren, Communications Director for CCBR and the campaign’s co-organizer. “Around 100,000 pre-born human beings are decapitated, dismembered, and disembowelled each year in our country. We’ve found that when we expose the injustice of abortion as well as a politician’s stance on the issue, people change their position.”
CLC Youth and CCBR urge all pro-life Canadians to join the #No2Trudeau launch and join them in campaigning against Justin Trudeau in this year’s federal election.
