Calvary Grace Church was informed this AM that its application for Canada Summer Jobs funding would not be considered, as we had crossed out part of the application (sending an explanatory letter) and the federal government’s position is that the application’s required abortion-affirming attestation “cannot be altered or modified.” In response I wrote an email to Minister Patty Hajdu, Prime Minister Trudeau, and the Leader of the Opposition Andrew Scheer.

Mark your calendars.
