MP Leslyn Lewis
Conservative Party | Haldimand - Norfolk, ON
CLC rating: Pro-life
In 2020, Ms. Lewis ran for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada and achieved a high degree of success, gaining well over 30% of the popular vote at one point during the leadership balloting process.
In April 2021, Ms. Lewis tweeted her strong support for Bill C-233 (sponsored by pro-life CPC MP Cathay Wagantall), to outlaw "sex-selective" abortion, that is, the killing of unborn children solely on the basis of their sex, and often targeting girls. (see Quotes tab).
Note: The voting score calculation is not weighted to account for relative differences in importance of various bills or issues. Here is Leslyn Lewis's voting record relating to life and family issues:
|Votes, Surveys and Policy Decision||Vote||Score|
|Motion 41 - a second attempt to end coercive federal Covid vaccine mandates
This pro-freedom Motion, made by Conservative Party MP Michael Barrett, called on the Trudeau Liberal government to immediately lift all federal vaccine mandates, which have resulted in the termination of thousands of federally regulated employees, restrictions on the rights of Canadians to travel freely, and impediments to the free flow of goods across the Canadian border. This principled, scientifically-based, and freedom-defending Motion was tragically defeated on March 24, 2022 by a vote of 212 against to 117 in favour.
|Bill C-11, to apply censorship & total government control over the internet, 3rd reading
This bill was written to end free speech on the internet, and to give the Trudeau Liberals soviet-style, authoritarian control over the information Canadians are allowed to read, see and hear. It places all internet and social media content under the bureaucratic control of the biased, far-left CRTC (Candian Radio-television & Telecommunications Commission). This law gives the agency the power to take down content that Liberals don't like, ban users who post it, and enforce algorithms that move Marxist left-wing content to the top of search results and suggested social media posts, thus cementing the power of government to indoctrinate the public, to bury Liberal scandals and keep corruption out of sight of Canadians, and even to influence elections to favour the Liberals. Christian, pro-life and conservative content will certainly be supressed and, in many cases, automatically blocked by algorithms. Bill C-11 passed on June 21, 2022 by a vote of 208 Yeas to 117 Nays.
|Motion to end coercive vaccine mandates
This pro-freedom Motion, introduced by the Conservative Party's Interim Leader Candice Bergen, called on the Trudeau Liberal government to table a plan for ending its punitive, unscientific, and cruel Covid restrictions - including the mandating of abortion-tainted Covid vaccines - by February 28, 2022. Shamefully, the Motion was defeated on February 14, 2022 by a vote of 185 against to 151 in favour.
|Emergencies Act: To grant Justin Trudeau totalitarian, police state powers so that he could shut down a peaceful protest against unconstitutional federal mandates forcing Canadians to take abortion-tainted COVID injections, regardless of conscientious objections.
The Emergencies Act (i.e. martial law), was used to shut down a peaceful freedom protest by blue collar workers in Ottawa. Trudeau seized the bank accounts of hundreds of peaceful protesters without due process, arrested them, and ordered police action which saw protestors trampled by horses, shot with rubber bullets, beaten with batons, and pepper sprayed while peacefully demanding the return of their rights and freedoms after 2 years of government oppression. Sadly, it passed by a vote of 185 to 151 on February 21, 2022.
Here are quotes from Leslyn Lewis on various life and family issues:
Expressing her principled revulsion at the horror of "sex-selective" abortion, which is the killing of unborn children solely because of their sex, and often targeting girls: "How can someone claim to be a feminist and support sex selective abortion? There is clear evidence that baby girls are targeted in the womb just because they are the “wrong sex”. We cannot continue to justify the misogynistic practices of sex selective abortion in Canada." [Twitter posting, @LeslynLewis, April 14, 2021]
