UPDATE:ALERT- Vote on Conservative Motion to Rectify the Liberal Discrimination on the Summer Jobs Program – Held on March 19, 2018

UPDATE: ALERT                                                                                       March 22, 2018

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ordered all Liberal MP’s to vote against the Conservative Motion which rectified the Liberal government’s discriminatory Summer Jobs Program. The latter required all organizations, including faith-based ones, to attest to their support for the Liberal agenda on abortion and transgenderism before receiving funding for summer student employment. The vote was taken on Monday, March 19, 2018.

The Corrective Conservative Motion reads as follows:

“That, in the opinion of the House, organizations that engage in non-political non-activist work, such as feeding the homeless, helping refugees, and giving kids an opportunity to go to camp, should be able to access Canada Summer Jobs funding regardless of their private convictions and regardless of whether or not they choose to sign the application attestation.”

The vote was 207 against the motion and 93 in support of the motion.

It is important to take note of how the individual MP’s voted on this motion, as the vote will be a critical factor in the October, 2019 federal election.

Summary of Vote

Liberal MP John McKay (Scarborough—Guildwood, ON) did not vote on the motion, but was in the House of Commons that day. MP Scott Simms (Coast of Bays—Central—Notre Dame, NL) was the only Liberal member who voted for the motion. MP David Christopherson (Hamilton Centre, ON) was the only NDP member who voted for the motion. Green Party Member, Elizabeth May voted for the motion. Three Bloc MPs voted in favour of the motion. No Conservative member voted against the motion.

The Discrimination Must Stop

We cannot let this matter die. If Trudeau can discriminate against faith-based organizations in the Summer Jobs Program, he will do so with other government programs which re-distribute tax dollars.

Although you must be tired of writing letters and contacting your MP, it is the most effective way to keep this issue alive. If this discrimination appears to be forgotten or constituents appear to be resigned to the status quo, then it is far less likely that the Liberals will change this unacceptable policy.

Please write to your MP’s, thanking them for their support of the motion or expressing your concern that your MP voted against the motion.

MPs must realize that this issue will not die.
