Over the last weeks the new government has been preparing for this day. Announcements have been made regarding the government's intentions on a variety of fronts including Canada's tax structure, the Syrian refugee immigration process, access to abortion in rural Canada, Canada's role in the fight against ISIS, the environment and more. All of these are important issues for us to be watching, praying over and sharing our views with our leaders about.

In today's communication we have highlighted a few of these important issues with action steps on what you can do to be a Godly influence over them. Please share this information with your networks & join us in being a voice for Godly values in our nation.


Please also join us in praying for our government on this day. Let us agree that God will grant the 42nd Parliament great wisdom & discernment to govern Canada. Let us also pray for a move of God's Spirit in Parliament & that our leaders would have a heart for the things that are dear the the Lord's.


CanadaSupportsIsrael

On November 26th Prime Minister Justin Trudeau voted against the Arab-sponsored resolutions at the UN which looked to delegitimize Israel. In an article by The Canadian Jewish News it was reported that the director of public policy for Israel and Jewish affairs stated, "Ottawa’s stance this time is bigger than just a symbolic show of support from Canada. This is a statement of support for the UN and for fairness for Israel.”

We encourage you to contact Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's office and thank him for his recent decision to continue to stand with Israel by voting against these motions.

AbortionAccessIncrease

Canada's new Health Minister, Jane Philpott, announced on November 17th that she will be striving towards increasing access to abortion in rural Canada.

The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada (ARCC) has given recommendations to the Government to do the following:

screen out pro-life doctors in medical school
increase surgical time for abortions in rural hospitals
give full funding for 'emergency contraceptives' and
remove all remaining restrictions on abortion in New Brunswick and PEI

No definite plan of action has been announced yet.

For more information please see the article below:

New Liberal health minister vows to expand abortion in small town Canada

Abortion access in Canada needs to be equalized, says health minister

The newly elected Liberal government have been strong in their support of a woman's right to choose with Prime Minster Justin Trudeau announcing last year that all Liberal MP's would have to vote along pro-choice party lines if the topic were to ever come up in the House of Commons. Click here to see article.

With abortion being legal up until full term in Canada and an estimated 100, 000 babies not making it past the womb because of abortion each year in Canada it is important that we continue to be a voice on this issue.

Thank you for considering what you can do.

SyrianRefugees

Canada has begun receiving the first Syrian refugees since the new government pledged to bring in a large number by the end of the year. The government has announced that 10,000 of the 25,000 refugees they have pledged to bring to Canada will all arrive by the end of the month. The rest are set to arrive by March 1st.

Over the past weeks there has been much discussion regarding the tension between showing compassion & support for the refugees while conducting the immigration process in an orderly and secure fashion. In response to this discussion we recorded a video interview with Pastor Matt Tapley of Lakemount Worship Centre. Please take a few minutes to watch the two videos below and share them with your friends.

HELPING PRACTICALLY

In addition we want to encourage us all to do what we can to show the love of Christ to the refugees as they arrive.
