Training Against the Evils of Capitalism

The younger generation of today has grown up in a world in which in school and press the spirit of commercial enterprise has been represented as disreputable and the making of profit as immoral, where to employ a hundred people is represented as exploitation but to command the same number as honorable. Older people may regard this as an exaggeration of the present state of affairs, but the daily experience of the university teacher leaves little doubt that, as a result of anticapitalist propaganda, values have already altered far in advance of the change in institutions which has so far taken place. The question is whether, by changing our institutions to satisfy the new demands, we shall not unwittingly destroy values which we still rate higher.

The Refusal of Conscience in Justin Trudeau’s Government

As expected, I received a rejection letter from Service Canada for an application for Canada Summer Jobs. This is the first time funding for our organization has been rejected. We have received funding since 2009.

The reason for this rejection is that as a Christian church, we reject human abortion and the marriage rights of those who of the same sex.

The 2018 application required a signed attestation that reads:

“Both the job and the organization’s core mandate respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as other rights. These include reproductive rights and the right to be free from discrimination on the basis of sex, religion, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.”

Below is a screenshot of the repairs I made to the application I submitted. I marked over the words in bold above:

Yesterday I received an email from Service Canada:

Your application must be resubmitted because the attestation cannot be altered or modified. The “I attest” box must be checked and the application signed.  You can resubmit the last page only, which contains the requested jobs, the attestation and the signature.”

So, this year we will not receive a Canada Summer Jobs grant because of a conscientious objection to sodomy and the murder of infants. Bad idea for the Government of Canada: Ontario has just raised the minimum wage 22% on January first, and now has lost 59,000 jobs since then, mostly part-time.

This is unconstitutional and against the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Follow this blog until it’s deemed illegal.

“Are You in Danger?”

One of the requirements employers must fulfill when hiring Canada Summer Jobs students is to make certain each student reads a pamphlet, “Are You in Danger?” which is a short instruction manual on employee safety. Each employee is made aware in this pamphlet of their need to be aware of dangers on the job.

It seems that besides exposure to paint fumes or toxic workplace cleaners, the Trudeau government is worried that the youngsters (ages 15-30) will be exposed to bad ideas. In the Prime Minister’s own words:

Additionally, these changes help prevent youth (as young as 15 years of age) from being exposed to employment within organizations that may promote positions that are contrary to the values enshrined in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and associated case law. This change helps to ensure that youth job opportunities funded by the Government of Canada take place in an environment that respects the rights of all Canadians.”

So now, the beliefs of the Christian church, all 2000 years of it, is a toxin, which must be kept from unsuspecting youth. Youth must never know the truth about abortion.
