In 2019, every UCP candidate campaigned on a platform that included a commitment to introduce recall legislation that would strengthen democracy and accountability in our province.

The Value of Life: C-7
Final votes recently took place on Liberal Bill C-7, an act that changes the laws around Medical Assistance in Dying (also known as assisted suicide or euthanasia). Before getting into some of the specifics of this bill, I wanted to emphasize how important it is to have respect when dealing with difficult issues like this.

As this column delves into some of the concerns I have raised, please know I respect that not everyone agrees.
