Canadian Coalition Launches Lawsuit Against Federal Government Over Summer Jobs Attestation
The Canada Summer Jobs Program offers money to groups that hire students for summer positions. In a break from previous years, it now requires participating organizations to sign an attestation that their "core mandate" agrees with a variety of left-wing positions, including a "right" to abortion - regardless of whether the organization is involved in political advocacy against abortion. A coalition of Canadian companies and a Christian student ministry are taking Justin Trudeau's Liberal government to court over its requirement that they declare support for legal abortion and other political stances in order to participate in the country's summer jobs program.
