CLC rating: Pro-life, pro-family

SupportableLight Rating

Rating Comments: Derek has been an outspoken and courageous advocate for the sanctity of life, family values, free speech and religious freedom since he became a Conservative MP in the 2019 federal election.

As a contestant in the 2020 Conservative Party of Canada Leadership race, Derek ran on explicitly pro-life and pro-family platform. He was fraudulently booted from the Conservative caucus by then-party leader Erin O'Toole, based on trumped up charges.

In December 2021, Derek became the leader of the Ontario Party in order to bring socially conservative values back to provincial politics in the June 2022 Ontario provincial election. As well was being party leader, Derek is also the Ontario Party candidate in the riding of Hastings-Lennox and Addington, which is the same ridng he held as a federal MP.

Question Response
Do you acknowledge that human life begins at conception (fertilization)? Yes (based on federal questionnaire responses)
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? Yes (based on federal questionnaire responses)
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? Yes (based on federal questionnaire responses)
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.
Yes (based on federal questionnaire responses)
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? Yes (based on federal questionnaire responses)
