Survey not yet sent to candidate, so his views on life & family issues are still unknown.

Rating Comments

Poilievre used to be known as a solid pro-life, pro-family MP. However, he abandoned these fundamental principles when in January 2020, he expressed to La Presse in an interview, his full throated disagreement with the natural definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Poilievre also gave the impression to the La Presse reporter that if elected Leader of the Conservative Party, he would allow backbench MPs to bring forward pro-life private members bills, but, disgracefully, he would also ensure the defeat of any such pro-life private member' bill or motion. (see quotes tab).

In a subsequent interview with the Toronto Star, a Poilievre spokesperson clarified that Pierre would allow MPs to vote their conscience on abortion-related private members bills, but that they would not be "adopted" by his government, and that he would personally vote against any such bills.

CLC's candidate rating standards hold that any politician who votes against pro-life initiatives is pro-abortion, no matter what they claim to be in their interior "personal belief".

In abandoning his support for natural marriage and the sanctity of life, Poilievre has also betrayed his Catholic faith, and placed himself outside the moral boundaries of the Church.

Official party policy is pro-abortion and anti-traditional marriage. In fact, Trudeau's new candidate selection process, instituted May 7, 2014, forbids any pro-life Canadians from running as Liberal Party candidates. The only way they would be allowed to run, is if they promise to vote in favour of abortion whenever such legislation comes up.

Green Party policy is officially pro-abortion & pro-homosexualist. A press release by Party Leader Elizabeth May said she supports abortion on-demand. May also did a a video interview in which she said abortion "is not a morally wrong decision by any means". The previous Green leader, Jim Harris, stated: "The Green Party is in favour of gay marriage and a woman's right to choose (on abortion)".
