Trudeau opin­ion on abor­tion ir­rel­e­vant

Irish Examiner - - Opinion -

I have never writ­ten to a news­pa­per be­fore, but Taoiseach Leo Varad­kar’s visit to Canada, and the sub­se­quent re­ports of his dis­cus­sion with that coun­try’s prime min­is­ter, Justin Trudeau, have com­pelled me to do so. If the pri­mary pur­pose of Varad­kar’s visit was to pro­mote Ire­land’s trade and in­dus­try, why did he join the Mon­treal Gay Pride pa­rade and take ad­vice from Mr Trudeau on abor­tion. Ire­land was a Chris­tian coun­try when Canada was pop­u­lated only by na­tive In­di­ans.

And the vast ma­jor­ity of our peo­ple still wish to con­tinue our tra­di­tions and re­li­gion.

Mr Varad­kar has al­ready an­nounced his own “moral stand­ing”, but has no author­ity to lead this coun­try down that road.

It is time for the silent ma­jor­ity to say stop, be­fore it is too late. Brian Fla­herty
