We are joined today by two stalwarts of the pro-life movement, both from the Ottawa office of CLC (Campaign Life Coalition). Debbie Duval is the National Capital Organizer and Hanna Kepka is in charge of Government Relations for CLC. They and their team worked with many others to organize the recent 2021 National March for Life in Ottawa. Rod and Peter discuss with them the state of pro-life politics and some of the bills currently before Parliament.
Rod and Peter are joined by Ontario President Jim Enos and Acacia Group lawyer John Sikkema to discuss developments in the judicial review case between the City of Guelph and Guelph Right to Life. CHP Canada has intervenor status in this case based on our previous judicial victory in the City of Hamilton. In both cases, the cities attempted to eliminate ads placed in transit system ad spaces that convey policy opinions contrary to those held by the cities. CHP won its case in Hamilton and hopes that the Guelph decision will also be in favour of free speech.

Natalie Sonnen brings us up to date on Bill C-7, the Government move to extend euthanasia and assisted suicide to more groups of vulnerable people in Canada; if passed by the Senate, C-7 will remove the few safeguards which were included in Canada’s first MAiD legislation less than five years ago.

Leading Influence’s Founder and National Director Tim Schindel joins Rod Taylor and Peter Vogel to talk about the stresses and strains common to elected Members of Parliament and Provincial Legislators and how he and his team minister to elected officials in non-partisan recognition of the deep spiritual needs of all people, including those in places of influence and power.
