From Lifesite, the wording to be introduced in Parliament this week:
That this house call on the government to introduce legislation to restore the traditional definition of marriage without affecting civil unions, and while respecting existing same sex marriages.
Also, from the same source:
OTTAWA, Canada, December 1, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Status of Women Canada will lose the majority of its offices by April 1, 2007, the Conservative government said Wednesday, in a follow-through to the program of funding cuts announced in this fall’s budget.
Of course not all women's groups oppose the shut-down. REAL Women's Gwen Landolt gives the move a big thumbs up:
"Status of Women is a make-work project for radical feminism,” said Gwen Landolt, national vice-president of REAL Women, in an interview with LifeSiteNews.com.
“All these women were on the government pay to promote an ideology, not to promote women. The vast majority of women today are competent, capable, industrious and are quite able to participate in the economic, social and cultural life of Canada on their own initiative.”
I always like to quote Gwen Landolt, because it gives me an excuse to reference this old post, which covers a speech she gave in 2003, where Gwen accused homosexual activists of supporting abortion rights as a means of instituting One World Government via the United Nations.
