The No Longer Great White North

I have always been fond of our neighbor to the north, in part perhaps because my favorite TV show in high school was the incomparable SCTV, still, to my mind, the best and most intelligent comedy program ever on television.  But today’s Canada is a far more sinister place than the one gently lampooned by the alter egos of Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, Bob and Doug McKenzie. 

Today I came across a story in the Catholic press reporting that Canada has bestowed its highest honor, the Order of Canada, on Henry Morgentaler, a man who has made his living by personally killing tens of thousands of innocent unborn human beings.  Morgentaler was responsible for the legal challenge that resulted in the overturning of Canada’s abortion law, leading to perhaps the most liberal abortion law in the West.  All this butchery has made Morgentaler a rich man:  Morgentaler earns millions of dollars from his abortion clinics.

In addition to the fame he has garnered by killing unborn children, Morgentaler is also famous in Canada for being a strident atheist.  Indeed, Morgentaler was awarded the Order of Canada “for his commitment to increased health care options for women, his determined efforts to influence Canadian public policy and his leadership in humanist [read “atheist”] and civil liberties organizations.”  Any country that would give its highest honor to a man such as Morgentaler truly deserves to be known as Soviet Canuckistan.
