B.C. inmates attempt to form first prison labour union in Canada - The Globe and Mail

EXCUSE ME??? This too could be another sign of the approaching abyss. Folks, there's being progressive. There's being enlightened. And then there's being STUPID!!! If this is allowed, it will rank as one Canada's greatest 'D'Oh' (Homer Simpson) moment in recent memory. Anyone interested in laying down a bet as to whether or not our equally progressive and enlightened courts is going to rule on this one (because you know that eventually the SCC will probably have to rule on the case).

  1. This is in my back yard, so you know I'm watching this very, very closely! And like you, I'm finding it hard to believe that anyone took the opening bid to form a union seriously! But I try not to underestimate the power of human stupidity...

    What are they gonna do with it if they get it? Strike for higher wages? Better working conditions? More benefits? More vacation time? Can't wait to see that picket line when they're all under lockdown. And just how do they propose to collect dues?

    And then there's gonna be the issue of prisoners who don't want to join a union. Can't wait for the first lawsuit over that, too...

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
