PEI parish bans Liberal nomination meeting.

Following parishioner-based concerns, the parish of St. Joachim in Vernon, PEI, has banned Liberal MP Lawrence MacAulay's riding association from hosting its nomination meeting in the parish hall. MacAulay was a pro-lifer in the past and the Liberal representative of Cardigan, PEI, for twenty-six years. He has now flip-flopped and agreed to Justin Trudeau's decree that only pro-abortion candidates are welcome to run for the Liberal Party. In rejecting his pro-life stance and agreeing to vote "prochoice," should the issue come up in the House of Commons, Mr. MacAulay is putting political gain ahead of moral right and defence of the unborn.
