Canada Day - Not such a great celebration.

Canada's Really Big - Doesn't that make you proud?


We celebrated Canada Day by attending fireworks last night. Goderich has always held their fireworks the night BEFORE Canada Day, and for many years we have made the trip to the Harbour and settled on the Main Beach in order to enjoy the sights and sounds.

My parents taught me to be proud of this land called Canada. Long before it was fashionable to celebrate "Dominion Day" with anything more than a subdued picnic with family at a local park, my parents instilled in me a sense of ownership. This was MY country. I was to defend it, as others had before me. My uncle died during the Second World War, and I believed that his sacrifice was a virtuous one, because it stopped the progression of evil in the form of Hitler's Nazis. Now, I wonder about that.

Canada Day 2008 is one I would rather not celebrate. In spite of a clear majority of Canadians who feel that abortion is not something we want to encourage, a committee decided that on this Canada Day, Dr. Henry Morgentaler was to be awarded the Order of Canada. Morgentaler crusaded and succeeded in changing Canada’s abortion law and is responsible for the death of countless thousands of unborn children.

March 1973: Morgentaler announces that he has successfully performed over 5,000 abortions. Doesn't this make you wonder how many babies have died because of this man in the past 35 years?

Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

July 2008: Morgentaler receives the Order of Canada. Doesn't this make you wonder if there's anything at all left to celebrate on Canada Day? Sadly, I guess the only thing left to be proud of is that Canada's really big.

Proverbs 28:4 Those who forsake the law, praise the wicked.

What a sad day, indeed! Your verses were well chosen.

As a non-Canadian I was not educated on what the Order of Canada is and in researching tonight I find in the description these statements:
*(The Order of Canada) "recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation."

Outstanding achievement of an abortionist??? I am sickened. Service to the nation??? Heaven help a nation who considers the murder of babies a service.

*"Their contributions are varied, yet they have all enriched the lives of others and made a difference to this country."

The only lives "enriched" are those collecting the (dirty) money from the unspeakable acts against humanity. I grieve for the "difference" that man has made in Canada and the world.

*The Order of Canada’s motto is DESIDERANTES MELIOREM PATRIAM (They desire a better country).

So sad. What is there to say? Canada is certainly NOT a better country from the contribution of that individual. I can't begin to believe that man is the "best" they could come up with for the award. Shouldn't have even been near the running.

Sad day, indeed.

Every child he aborted will be given a whip for him when he dies, to be used for eternity. It's very sad that evil is given an award.

As a fellow Canadian, I am sickened by this. It honestly boggles my mind that Canada is choosing to honour this man (??)
