Trudeau states aborting a baby due to gender is a Charter right

Trudeau’s political career has just crashed and burned after repeatedly answering Sun News’ Marissa Semkiw’s questions about sex-selection abortions as a Charter protected right:

MARISSA SEMKIW: A woman comes to you. She says she’s pregnant with a girl and she wants to terminate the life of the child because it’s a girl. What would you say to her?

JUSTIN TRUDEAU: My position has been very clear. The Liberal Party is the party standing up for people’s rights. And the Liberal Party will always be the party of the Charter. So we will continue to stand up for people’s rights and not legislate them away.

MARISSA SEMKIW: So to be clear, you wouldn’t discourage her from having an abortion because it’s a girl?

JUSTIN TRUDEAU: My role as the leader of the Liberal Party is to make sure that Canadian legislation respects peoples rights and that’s what I will continue to do.

MARISSA SEMKIW: Yesterday you said you were happy with the status quo on abortion. But right now the status quo is that it’s perfectly fine to abort a child because it’s a girl. Do you have no qualms with that?

JUSTIN TRUDEAU: I will leave discussions like that between a woman and the health professionals that she encounters. I don’t think the government should be in the business of legislating away people’s rights. And that’s why the Liberal Party is steadfast in this position. (see here)

The Liberals will never form government with Trudeau as leader now.

CBC didn’t notice protester on probation at Enbridge pipeline blockade?

After watching a Sun News segment where host Ezra Levant and reporter Marissa Semkiw exposed professional anti-oil protester Trish Mills being at the latest Enbridge blockade while on probation for the same offence (see here), it got me wondering if the CBC (who Semkiw mentioned interviewing the protesters earlier) reported her being there as well.

And the answer (as if you were holding your breath) is no – even though Mills is certainly  shown in one of the photos posted on the CBC story:

Since there is no reporter’s byline included in the story (see here) I asked Hamilton CBC reporter Samantha Craggs who the reporter was.

Craggs did an interview with Mills after Mills was let off with a slap on the wrist for participating in the previous Enbridge blockade so is obviously familiar with the entire story:

Three other charges related to a skirmish during her August court appearance — assaulting a peace officer, obstructing a peace officer and causing a disturbance — were dropped.

It’s “the most lenient sentence” possible, said Justice Bernd Zabel, who heard Mills’s guilty plea Tuesday.

Under a conditional discharge, Mill will have no criminal record if she follows the terms of her probation. If Mills reoffends, the judge warned, she won’t get off so lightly.

 “This is a break you only get once from the courts,” he said. “If you come back before us in the future, you will not receive the same consideration.” (see here)

I also sent the same tweet to her Hamilton station’s official Twitter account and will update if I hear back.
