Protect our religious freedoms

“If it wasn’t for lawyers, we wouldn’t need lawyers,” is a humorous saying, and also somewhat factual.

Many Canadian citizens, if not all, have had to involve a lawyer in some aspect of their personal and/or business lifetime. For some, the experience was good, for others it proved awful.

Are lawyers trustworthy? Surely, some are, some are not.

Did you know that hundreds of prominent lawyers and corporate executives from across Canada have joined a club called Legal Leaders For Diversity? These lawyers and executives are employed by 70 prominent companies, some of which you and I may be doing business with right here in Red Deer.

So what are these misguided lawyers and executives up to?

Well, in short, they have banded together to launch an assault on freedom of religion in Canada specifically Christian religion.

Let me explain in more detail what is happening.

Trinity Western University (TWU) is a faith-based Christian university located in B.C.’s lower mainland. It is expanding and has applied to the Law Society of Upper Canada for accreditation for its new law school, which is to begin classes in September 2016. Unfortunately, there is a massive fight underway to stop TWU in their tracks before it can establish the law school. This insidious fight is being led for the above-mentioned club.
