Canada often gets attacked in the U.S. for its national health care system. Now here's another way in which our Neighbor to the North is a disappointment to political conservatives -- an event presented by the pro-Marriage Protection Amendment people :
CANADA: A Look at Minnesota’s Future Without the
Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment
What: The Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment is the only means available to prevent in Minnesota the very real consequences Canadians continue to face in the wake of losing their battle to preserve marriage as between one man and one woman several years ago.
Prominent Canadians and legal experts will discuss the negative consequences impacting Canada after its decision to redefine marriage. The consequences are far-reaching—from pre-kindergarten students, to clerics, to private and public employees—no aspect of society has been left unaffected.
The event will include a short press conference featuring The Most Reverend Terrence Prendergast and other Canadians who have personally been impacted by Canada’s redefinition of marriage. There will be an opportunity for press to interview speakers in the afternoon.
Who: Featuring The Most Reverend Terrence Prendergast, Archbishop of Ottawa, Ontario; Damien Goddard, former sportscaster from Ontario; Phil Lees,
founder of Public Education Advocates for Christian Equity; Albertos Polizogopoulos, lawyer and advocate; Dr. Steve Tourloukis, a Christian parent who initiated a case against his children’s school board; Jordan Lorence, senior counsel and senior vice-president of the Office of Strategic Initiatives for Alliance Defending Freedom; Eric Rossbach, Deputy General Counsel, Becket Fund for Religious Liberty
