15 Dec 2014 ARPA Canada clarifies CBC’s misleading headline

On October 2, 2014 nearly one hundred volunteers from across Canada gathered on Parliament Hill to plant 100,000 pink and blue flags for ARPA Canada's WeNeedaLAW.ca campaign. This was the largest anti-abortion display our country has ever seen. The flags, each one of them, represent one abortion every year in Canada. The display captured both national and international attention. You can view photos of the display here and on our Facebook page here. That was ten weeks ago. On Friday, December 12th, CBC ran a top story on the...

04 Jul 2014 ARPA Granted Intervenor Status in Supreme Court Euthanasia Case

With thankfulness to God, we are grateful to report that ARPA Canada has been granted standing as an intervenor in the Supreme Court of Canada case Carter et al v Attorney General of Canada, which will decide whether Canada's laws against euthanasia and assisted suicide will stand. As with the Loyola case, the Court is allowing us 10 pages of written arguments, and will decide later if we will also get to make oral arguments. This case will have a huge impact on the value of human life in Canadian law. Once a line is crossed where some human lives are deemed not worth living, then it is up to the subjective will of some to decide whether others meet their criteria or not.

21 May 2014 Response to Recent Reports Questioning ARPA’s Presence “In” Parliament

Updated July 29, 2014: see postscript Under the title of "the Granddaddy of Government Scandals," FreeThePressCanada has made the effort to connect ARPA Canada to Canada's Federal government. ARPA is cited a whopping 95 times in this report, all in an effort to uncover this "scandal" of Christians using their democratic freedom to communicate their views with their government officials. Unfortunately, the author didn't take the time to fact-check, nor even give us the courtesy of a phone call to clear up her big questions and allegations. If she had, it might have made for a rather boring report. Here are just a few corrections to the many factual errors in the report:
