U of Guelph's CSA backs down on pro-life ban

The University of Guelph's CSA has quietly decided to return to reason... they have re-granted status to the pro-life student club on campus.

Good to see this reversal of their earlier and poorly thought out decision. Of course, they still have several other issues to deal with, such as their support of the attacks on General Hiller, or their fundraising for the legal defence of criminal activity... but it's good to see them taking baby steps towards sanity.

    unfortunately the unviversity of victoria has had this same policy this year forbidding a pro life club while supporting a marijuana club with student fees.

    So it's better to have children born to unloving mothers or families unable to provide them with a stable upbringing? A life of misery ensues, they'll likely even become Conservatives or bible thumps like you. NO THANKS.

    CC,

    Found your blog and enjoyed reading your posts, esp. the recent one about PM Harper and the Conservatives. I am an American in South Carolina and also a Canadian political observer (I interened in your Parliament five years ago through a college exchange program and have been interested ever since). I am a conservative (small-c here in the states) even though I interned in a Liberal MP office. We have a lot of conservative blogs and talk radio stations here in the US and I wanted to see if anythig similar existed in Canada - and I came upon your blog! Anyway, geat job, and if you ever want to discuss conservative politics in the US or Canada...feel free to drop me a line.

    I don't understand Christian support of the Conservatives??? Sure they're happy to have the support at the voting booth, and some Pro-Life MPs in caucus are good for optics.

    But the PMO sets the agenda and Harper has made it perfectly clear he intends to nothing about social conservative issues.

    Better the CHP for those who want Christian issues brought to the table...it beats being pandered to.

    Meh... doesn't bother me.

    I don't support the CHP for three reasons... one, they have no hope of ever getting an MP elected. Two, supporting them may prevent some right-leaning MP's from getting elected. And three, I don't agree with mixing religion and politics... if you can believe I actually said that. (partly because I don't want politics diluting my faith, partly because I think a political party should represent ALL the people, not just those of one faith)

    Out of your 3 reasons listed, the first two could be addressed with electoral reform.

    As for the third, we'll have to agree because of my stance on the separation of church and state.

    Which is a shame, really. I can't help but think that they bring something relevant to the table. But I have been unable to vote for them because they mix religion and politics.

    Despite all that, they are Canada's 6th largest political party. Betcha didn't know that, did ya?
