Rating Comments: PC candidate Todd McCarthy gave perfect answers to CLC's 2011 Ontario election questionnaire.

In a potential confusing coincidence, the None of the Above Party candidate in this riding has exactly the same name with the same spelling as pro-life PC candidate Todd McCarthy. Voters are cautioned to pay particular attention to this unusual circumstance when marking their ballots at election time.

Votes, Surveys and Policy Decision Vote Score
Motion 36 - To expand OHIP coverage to include universal access to all prescription contraception.
This motion would have expanded the scope of the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) to cover the cost of all prescription contraceptives, including oral hormone pills, copper IUDs, implants and the abortifacient drug called Plan B. This motion was defeated on Nov. 30, 2023, by a vote of 61-23. The voting broke down along party lines with the Ontario PCs opposing this free, taxpayer-funded contraception plan, while the support for the scheme came from NDP and Liberal MPPs.

Will you protect the rights of parents to educate their children according to their faith in matters of moral principles and beliefs concerning abortion, contraception and homosexuality? Yes
Will you oppose euthanasia and instead support measures to promote "palliative care", the purpose of which is to alleviate pain, and enhance the quality of life for terminally ill patients and those with disabilities? *Euthanasia is the direct and intentional killing of a person by action or omission, with or without that person's consent, for what people mistakenly believe are compassionate reasons. Yes
