Updated Information About ARPA’s Upcoming Events in BC & Ontario
Grace & Truth in Canadian Politics and Launch of the Stand up For Freedom Canada Campaign
Christ exemplified a message of both grace and truth. How can we apply this to Canadian politics? This presentation by ARPA Canada’s director Mark Penninga will include interviews with Canadian leaders to apply these principles to specific issues of the day.
The events will feature the launch of the Stand Up for Freedom Canada! campaign. Over the past decade we have seen examples of Christians, even within our own churches, who are brought before human rights commissions for writing, saying or doing something that they believe is right but that others believe is discriminatory or even hateful. ARPA Canada has been preparing a large new campaign with the purpose of educating the public about Canada’s human rights commissions and how they are increasingly replacing our fundamental freedoms (speech, conscience, religion etc) with a new set of demands that they call “human rights.”
BC Speakers: Mark Penninga with Neil Dykstra (a board member of ARPA Canada and editor of a leading internet blog on this issue)
Ontario Speakers: Mark Penninga with André Schutten (BA Hons, LLB – Tues, Wed, Thurs) and Scott Brockie (Christian businessman whose landmark HRC case first exposed others to the problems of the commissions – Monday and Friday).
