In Marois’ Montreal, the sound of English becomes an offence | Full Comment | National Post

    There are narrow-minded people everywhere. We ought to be cautious about taking a couple of incidents and making a hasty induction about an entire society.
    Twenty-five years ago, I was visiting a friend in an American city. The Franciscan friary where I was staying was in a troubled neighbourhood. My friend and I were walking in the neighbourhood in broad daylight. A young man, who appeared to be on drugs, accosted us and said, “What are you all doing in the ghetto? We don’t like white folks.” Am I to draw a general conclusion from the actions of this one man?
    I lived in Quebec City during the constitutional crisis of the early 1990’s, when, night after night, the francophone media flashed an image of anglophones in Ontario trampling the Quebec flag. Feelings were running high, but I never experienced an incident of a personal nature.
    For there to be social peace, cooler heads, to say nothing of justice, must prevail.

Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders.

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

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59. Check how the Members of Parliament voted at: On June 5, 2010, we are co-hosting the US/Canda Push-Back Seminar at the Radisson Gateway Hotel at the Seattle/Tacoma Airport. The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy.
