Political correctness is a cancer in our Canadian fabric.
OTTAWA, Ontario (PRWEB) March 24, 2015
On Wednesday, March 25, faith leaders will gather at Parliament to address the issue of freedom of religion and conscience in Canada, and call upon the Canadian government to defend the rights of churches, schools and communities domestically. The press conference, which will be held at 10:30 a.m. EST at Parliament’s Charles Lynch Room, will be followed by a Q&A session with the media in attendance.
Participants will include One Free World International founder Majed El Shafie; Charles McVety, Institute for Canadian Values; Andre Schutten, legal counsel with the Association for Reformed Political Action (ARPA) Canada; Bill Prankard, President of Bill Prankard Evangelistic Association; and Lia Milousis, MY Canada Association.
“Political correctness is a cancer in our Canadian fabric,” says El Shafie. “I was imprisoned and tortured in Egypt for my Christian beliefs, and I was given a chance at freedom when I came to Canada years ago. I don’t want that freedom taken away from me.”
Schutten shares El Shafie’s concern: “As a Christian lawyer heavily involved in religious freedom issues in Canada, I can say that across this country at the regulatory, municipal, provincial and federal level, laws and regulations continue to be passed that restrict or curtail the religious freedom of Canadians.”
