Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson
People’s Party of Canada
Two years ago, I was living the dream life. I was a national daily television broadcaster for The 700 Club Canada.
I was travelling and speaking at leadership conferences. I loved my husband and three grown children … life was perfect in beautiful British Columbia.
Then it turned upside down when a mother told me about the SOGI resources (sexual orientation and gender identity) going into all the schools. This agenda involved teaching little kids they could be a different gender inside their heads than they were in their bodies.
I decided to do a show on it and quickly found myself targeted by LGBTQ activists. They called my work incessantly, and the CRTC, all the TV channels I was on and all the advertisers, requesting that I be off the air.
They called me horrible names and sent death threats. I was eventually released from my job with the realization that our world was being overtaken by those who demand that we must bow to their ideology or face the furnace of social terrorism. I decided I would not bow.
I put my name forward to run with the Conservative Party of Canada, the only party I had ever voted for. They were the ones who upheld our values and stood against the tyranny of our changing humanistic world, right?
Well, not the case. They rejected me from two ridings, saying they did not want any controversy over the politically correct gender teachings in school. I was stunned. If the CPC does not defend our principles, not to mention science and common sense, then who does?
Maxime Bernier became the one who would stand up against the CBC and CTV as they grilled him over choosing me as a candidate. Max defended me, saying I was guaranteed my beliefs according to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I had never seen this kind of courage in a leader in Canada. He stood for the people.
As one of the very first candidates for the PPC, I faced off against NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh in Burnaby South. I campaigned hard on our platform in an NDP entrenched riding, with a five-month-old party, and brought in an astounding 11 per cent.
Max Bernier is the only one saying he will use Section 92 (10) to impose pipelines now.
The Conservative party says it is putting in an “energy corridor,” but that will take eight to 10 years, if you ask MP Blaine Calkins for details, with no pipeline laid.
Max is the only leader who says the equalization formula must be changed to be less generous to Quebec (in both French and English) and must be made fair for Albertans.
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer recently stated 350,000 immigrants per year was “reasonable.”
Our numbers are 100,000 to 150,000 capped. We will pull out of all UN initiatives, including the money-grabbing Paris Climate Accord. We will stop all foreign aid and corporate welfare, using that money to help Canadians. Scheer will reduce foreign aid by 25 per cent and will continue to fund abortions worldwide.
On abortion, Scheer and MP Lisa Raitt, deputy leader of the CPC, have now taken the stand they will “block and oppose” all legislation by backbenchers for the protection of the preborn. This is no longer a conservative party.
Please see my bill to end late-term abortion at www.preborn.ca. Scheer said in the past two weeks, he supports more legislation for the protection of the LGBTQ.
The People’s Party of Canada will not support elevating one group over another. We are Canadian. We are all protected. We believe radical Islam is a threat to our nation, and we are not politically correct.
