Rating Comments: In conversation with a CLC Leader, Philip was deemed to be pro-life and pro-family.

In June 2021, Philip rightly voted in favour of pro-life Bill C-233, introduced by Conservative MP Cathay Wagantall, to outlaw the horrific practice of sex-selective abortion, in which unborn babies are killed for no other reason than their sex.

Shockingly, in the same month, Philip voted in favour of the totalitarian, anti-family Bill C-6 which will jail parents for up to 5 years if they dare to affirm their gender-confused child in their biological sex. This is a stain on Philip's otherwise pro-life voting record.

CLC was disappointed to see this pro-life MP endorse the pro-abortion, 2020 Conservative Leadership candidate Erin O’Toole, especially when there were two strong pro-life candidates in the race, MP Derek Sloan and Dr. Leslyn Lewis, behind whom all pro-lifers needed to rally.

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.

Bill C-233 - 2nd Reading, to criminalize sex-selective abortion.
This principled bill, introduced by pro-life Conservative MP Cathay Wagantall, sought to protect all babies in the womb from being killed by abortion specifically because of their sex. Sex-selective abortion is typically committed in cultures that favour male children over female, and is a form of femicide. Despite support from 68% of Conservative Party MPs for this modicum of protection for the unborn, Bill C-233 was defeated on June 2, 2021 at 2nd Reading by a vote of 248 to 82, with all attending members of the rabidly pro-abortion Liberal, NDP, Green, and Bloc Québécois parties voting unanimously against it.

Bill C-10 - 3rd Reading, to establish totalitarian Internet Censorship
This legislation by the Justin Trudeau Liberals is reminiscent of the actions of past Communist and Nazi regimes to eradicate the free speech rights of the Party’s political or ideological opponents, and thus establish a total dictatorship. Bill C-10 would impose government censorship over the internet, allowing the Liberal government to censor any conservative or Christian speech with which Justin Trudeau disagrees. The Trudeau Liberals would achieve this by placing the entirety of the Canadian internet under the bureaucratic auspices of the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission). The CRTC will then regulate the internet’s content for diversity, prioritizing “Canadians from racialized communities and Canadians of diverse ethnocultural backgrounds, socio-economic statuses, abilities and disabilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and ages.” This would apply both to websites and social media posts. With the eager complicity of the NDP, Bloc Québécois, and Green parties, Bill C-10 passed 3rd Reading by 196 Yea votes to 112 Nay votes on June 22, 2021.

Bill C-6 - 3rd Reading, to criminalize parents, psychotherapy & spiritual guidance for unwanted sexual feelings
Vote on taking away the right of people who experience UNWANTED gender identity confusion or homosexual attraction to be able to obtain clinical therapy or pastoral counseling to help them live according to their faith or to overcome the unwanted sexual feelings. This unconstitutional bill also jails parents up to 5 years for providing body-affirming counselling to their sexually-confused children, or for discouraging a gay lifestyle in contradiction with the family’s religious faith. The totalitarian bill passed 3rd Reading by a vote of 263 to 63 on June 22, 2021.

Bill C-7 - 4th Reading, to expand euthanasia to target more vulnerable people
Vote on making it easier for patients to be killed by their doctors by expanding the definition of those eligible to access medical murder. Bill C-7 would eliminate even the "safeguard" of a waiting period prior to a euthanasia killing being carried out, and would reduce the number of witnesses required to observe a third party signing a euthanasia request from two witnesses to only one. In addition, Bill C-7 would not require the immediate consent of persons presently incapable of communicating but who had been previously approved for euthanasia; and would also make those whose death is not even reasonably foreseeable eligible to be killed if they experience what they subjectively consider to be "intolerable" physical or even psychological suffering. After the House of Commons passed Bill C-7 at 3rd Reading in December 2020, the Senate reviewed the bill and, incredibly, made the bill even worse by amending it to permit the killing of non-communicative patients who had previously given advance directives concerning euthanasia (even years before), and to allow the assisted suicide of people experiencing mental illness ALONE, without any physical health problem or ailment whatsoever. Although the final passage of the Bill in the House of Commons at 4th Reading rejected the terrible "advance directive" amendment by the Senate, it did accept the evil principle of assisted suicide for the mentally ill who are not dying or even experiencing any physical suffering. Bill C-7 brings the Trudeau Liberals' euthanasia fetish one step closer to suicide-on-demand. This death-liberalization bill passed 4th Reading by a vote of 180 to 149 on March 11, 2021.
