Candidate, Belinda Karahalios
New Blue Party | Cambridge, ON
CLC rating: Pro-life, pro-family
In July 2020, Belinda was kicked out of the Ontario PC Party by Premier Doug Ford after she courageously voted against a government bill that extends its emergency powers by up to two years to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Karahalios felt the bill represented an "unnecessary overreach" of her own PC government's legislative power, and she was willing to pay the price to follow her conscience and protect the interests of her constituents.
Since being expelled from the PC Party, Karahalios continues to serve her constituents as the first sitting MPP from the recently-formed New Blue Party of Ontario.

|Votes, Surveys and Policy Decision
|Bill 150, to eliminate voter fraud in internal party elections, second reading
This bill, officially called the ‘Ensuring Transparency and Integrity in Political Party Elections Act’, aimed to eliminate the voter fraud, ballot-box stuffing, falsified ballots and other rigging of votes that has been commonplace in the PC Party of Ontario with respect to candidate nomination elections, Party President and Executive Committee votes, wherein the party establishment cheats in order to rig the vote for its preferred candidate, or to block candidates they do not like. Those who oppose this bill can only object because they wish to continue conducting voter fraud. Passed 2nd reading Dec 12, 2019 by a vote 95-0.
|Bill 12, Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations in the Education and Healthcare Sectors, second reading
This bill was crafted to compel workers in the education and healthcare fields to submit to being injected with the abortion-tainted Covid-19 vaccines even against their will, or suffer discriminatory measures from their employers, which could have led to unemployment and poverty. This coercive bill to force people to choose between their conscience and their livelihood amounts to a legislative attack on democacy in Ontario. Defeated at 2nd reading on October 21, 2021 by a vote of 34-16.
|Bill 3, An Act to prohibit harassment based on enforcement or adoption of public health measures relating to COVID-19, second reading
This tyrannical bill, introduced by Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath, aimed to muzzle and punish the free speech of Ontarians who refuse to kowtow to the increasingly harsh and unscientific Covid public health decrees. The bill would create as-yet undefined and arbitrarily-designated "safe zones" in which any suggestion of alternative views or evidence that contradicts the government-enforced Covid mandate narrative could result in crippling fines of up to $25,000. With this bill, the NDP, along with the sole Ontario Green Party MPP, has revealed its savage attack on free speech and dissenting views in the public square and is showing ever-clearer signs of its socialist ideological pedigree of top-down totalitarian government. This Orwellian bill was defeated at 2nd Reading on Nov. 4, 2021 by a vote 46 to 20.
|Bill 67, to impose marxist, Critical Race Theory on schools, 2nd reading
This radical, socially-divisive bill seeks to impose on Ontario's schools what is known as 'Critical Race Theory', a modern-day version of the class warfare strategy developed by Carl Marx, the father of communism - an ideology responsible for the mass murder of up to 180 million people throughout history. In classic Marxism, socialists or communists seized control of society by exploiting existing tensions between rich & poor to divide and create conflict in society, painting one side as oppressed (poor) and the other as oppressor (rich), and then calling for violent revolution to overthrow the oppressor, with the Marxists supposedly bringing liberation, but ultimately becoming new dictators once in power. Likewise, in modern day 'Critical Race Theory', existing or even invented racial tensions are exploited to paint one race as oppressor (descendants of white Europeans) and others as oppressed (non-whites), and to call for various forms of discrimination, degradation and vilification against the oppressor class, in the name of 'social justice' or 'anti-racism', with the agitators of the conflict accumulating vast political power in the process. This dystopian bill passed 2nd reading by a vote of 72 yeas to 1 nay on March 3, 2022.

Here are the answers for the questionnaire as provided by Belinda Karahalios on 2018.
|Do you acknowledge that human life begins at conception (fertilization)?
|Are there any circumstances under which you believe a woman should have access to abortion? If yes, please explain.
*A surgical or medical intervention, designed to prevent the death of the mother (e.g. In the case of tubal pregnancy or cervical cancer) but which results in the unintended and undesired death of the pre-born child, is not an abortion.
|Would you support measures to delist medically unnecessary, elective abortions from the list of insured services covered by OHIP?
|Do you agree women have the right to be thoroughly informed about the serious health consequences of abortion, the development of the child in the womb and the alternatives to abortion?
|Would you vote in favor of repealing the Ontario "bubble zone" censorship law? This unconstitutional law criminalizes peaceful pro-life expression, including silent prayer, on taxpayer-owned public sidewalks within 50 metres (or more) of any abortion facility.
|Will you protect parental rights in education by working to ensure that traditionally principled parents are given advance notice of, and the ability to withdraw their children from, classroom lessons and presentations dealing with abortion, contraception, homosexuality, and transgenderism?
|Would you support efforts to repeal the age-inappropriate, graphic, sex-ed curriculum which is currently being taught throughout Ontario schools?
|If elected, will you vote to reject laws that would expand euthanasia and assisted-suicide and instead, promote palliative care, the purpose of which is to alleviate pain, and enhance the quality of life until natural death for terminally ill patients, and for those with disabilities?
*Euthanasia is the direct and intentional killing of a person by action or omission, with or without the consent of that person, for what people mistakenly believe are compassionate reasons.
|Will you support legislation to protect the right of health care workers who refuse to participate in procedures which are in violation of their religious or conscientious beliefs?
