Dalton McGinty.

In December 1996 Catholic Insight reported that all seven candidates for the leadership of the Ontario Liberal Party--six of whom were Catholics--saw nothing wrong with public-financed killing of the unborn. As evidence we placed an appropriate quotation behind each name.

 radio's Metro morning with Andy Barry, at 7:15 a.m. the day after his election, December 2:

"It's quite true that I an a Roman Catholic but I can tell you that as a public representative I represent Protestants, Muslims, Jews Jews [from Judah], traditionally, descendants of Judah, the fourth son of Jacob, whose tribe, with that of his half brother Benjamin, made up the kingdom of Judah; historically, members of the worldwide community of adherents to Judaism. , atheists, Roman Catholics, half of whom by the way believe in a woman's right to choose.
