Side-by-Side Candidate Comparison in the Riding of Chatham-Kent - Leamington

Rating Comments

John gave perfect answers to CLC's 2019 federal election questionnaire.

Rating Comments

Mr. Epp's responses to CLC's 2019 federal election questionnaire were inconclusive but contained some pro-life leanings.

Rating Comments

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.

During the 2019 federal election cycle, Mr. Vercouteren reversed his previously-held pro-life position, stating through a Green Party spokeswoman that he is now in favour of the prenatal killing of children through abortion (see Quotes tab).

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)".
