This is real political correctness - Canada requires 'core mandate' of organisations to be pro-abortion to access summer jobs grant

The term political correctness is tossed around casually to cover anything and everything these days (even people who are not rude or don't use bad language versus those who are rude or do use bad language) but here's a proper example of it - a government imposing the requirement to accept a single political position in order to qualify for a government programme.

I can understand the requirement that organisations be expected to respect human rights, but abortion isn't a human right.

However the Canadian government is elevating it to the level of a human right - requiring organisations that want to apply for government grants for summer jobs to have support for abortion as part of their 'core mandate'.

Isn't this just social engineering, using the stick of punishing those who don't have the same opinion of abortion as the current Canadian government does? The message is obvious - believe what we believe or you don't qualify for handouts.

I wonder sometimes if Canada is one big social experiment run by the seppos.

It's easy to dismiss a guilt trip as just that; when people realize that the one accusing you of bigotry is in fact a bigot themselves. That's what.
Okay. So they're bigots.

Now what? They're still making the laws.

Russia used to be militantly athiest and totalitarian, and the west was still considered Christian.

Now the west is atheist and increasingly totalitarian, and Russia reverted towards Christianity

Eastern Europe will save Christendom. The West will collapse under the weight of it's own degeneracy.

As usual with governments the Canadian government is saying that, but it's not in line with what the organisations are asked to sign - an attestation that they do agree with abortion.

The Trudeau government is great at getting things backwards - instead of asking about the bad thing that they have defined (that the core mandate of an organisation IS about opposing abortion) - they are asking for organisations to attest that their core mandate agrees with access to abortion.

The core mandates of most organisations say nothing about abortion, yet the Trudeau government is asking any organisation that wants one of these grants to attest that they do agree with abortion as part of their core mandate.

It's madness.

Trudeau and his ministers are waffling about this now - that there’s a difference between a group founded solely to oppose abortions and a religious group that happens to hold pro-life beliefs - but the latter sorts of groups are still required to sign that pro-abortion attestation.

But clearly that hasn't worked or people wouldn't be whining about political correctness.
Why shouldn't people complain about governments defining 1 specific political belief to be correct, and all others to be incorrect?

That's a positive aspect of democracy. It is tolerant. While one may disagree with one's opponents one accepts the result of the ballot. The other viewpoint is tolerated and respected as the will of the majority. It does not entail having to believe or accept the other position or give up campaigning for one own view.

One does not have to tolerate creeds or view point they agree with, only ones they disagree with. So while I disagree with your view point, even deem it bigoted, I believe you are entitled to it and your right to express it should be tolerated by those who disagree with it.

said it enough times, Trudeau is a monster, a fascist moron intent on destroying Canada from within, these fascists are laughing at how easy it is to get away with enforcing their ideology upon the people via sneaky, sly programs disguised as human rights sh1te, 1930s Germany only slicker,
