Rating Comments

Ivan's rating is being re-evaluated on the basis of conflicting positions that he purported to hold on the right to life, at different times in this election campaign.

On June 28, 2019 Ivan gave perfect answers to CLC's 2019 federal election questionnaire. On the basis of those answers, we rated him pro-life.

However, in a video interview posted September 11, 2019 Pak presented a stance in contradiction to his perfect survey responses. In the youtube video, he stated "I’m not a person who wants to take away the choices of women, they have the choice..". In the same video, he describes the pro-life position of criminalizing all abortion-killings as "one extreme", the pro-choice position of no abortion restrictions whatsoever as another "extreme", and says that he believes society should be "in the middle" of those two extremes.

Sadly, this is not a fully pro-life position. In fact, it is largely a pro-abortion position which holds that it should be legal to kill children in the womb depending on their size and level of development.
