|Stephen Woodworth speaks at Christ the Redeemer Parish hall June 1.|
"We have entered a new era in Canada when fundamental freedoms, which our ancestors defended with their lives, are under attack by civil authorities," he said.Woodworth spoke at Christ the Redeemer Parish hall in West Vancouver yesterday, raising issues including abortion, assisted suicide, and Trinity Western University's fight to open a law school.
"As someone who grew up within memory of Nazi tyranny, and in the shadow of the totalitarian Soviet Union, where civil authorities penalized the free practice of religion, ordered citizens to ignore their consciences, invented facts, and ruthlessly shut down opposition voices, I want Canadians to know that the undeclared war on democracy in Canada today threatens not just its immediate victims, but each and every one of us."
In the last two weeks, he's spoken to groups in Langley, Prince George, Vanderhof, Telkwa, Terrace, and Vancouver. His next, and last stop before crossing into Alberta, will be in Abbotsford, in the Magnolia Room of the Garden Park Tower, 2825 Clearbrook Road.
