Liberal MP Blasts Trudeau: Breaks Rank with Government Ban on Summer Job Grants for Pro-Lifers

"Although MP Simms is the first to speak out against this, I'm sure there are more Liberals who don't align with Trudeau's radical abortion obsession and his mission to reduce pro-life Canadians to second-class citizens." -Jeff Gunnarson

(Canada)— [Lifesitenews.com] A Liberal MP has broken ranks with Canada's Trudeau government over its new rule that employers must sign an attestation supporting abortion and transgender rights in order to receive summer job grants.

Newfoundland Liberal MP Scott Simms told CBC Radio, Monday, the "attestation" requirement violates the religious rights of faith-based charities and non-profits groups.

Under a policy Employment Minister Patty Hajdu introduced in December, employers applying for Canada Summer Job grants must sign an attestation that "both the job and the organization's core mandate respect individual human rights in Canada ... these include reproductive rights."

The online application is void if the attestation is not checked off.

Simms supports abortion—as all Liberal MPs are required to do under Trudeau—and is not disputing his government's exclusion of pro-life groups from public funding.

But he says the attestation goes too far.

"The application is asking them to do something that they shouldn't be asked to do for the sake of a summer job for kids," he told the CBC.

Simms also faulted the Liberals for disdaining the convictions of faith-based groups by downplaying the attestation and trying to persuade them to just sign it.

"To me that's a lack of respect. If I was to say to someone, 'Look, don't worry about it, just tick the box or whatever'—some people have a core fundamental belief that they don't believe in this," Simms told CBC.

Campaign Life Coalition vice president Jeff Gunnarson said he hoped Simms' public opposition inspires others in the Liberal caucus.

"Although MP Simms is the first to speak out against this, I'm sure there are more Liberals who don't align with Trudeau's radical abortion obsession and his mission to reduce pro-life Canadians to second-class citizens," Gunnarson told LifeSiteNews...
