Langley City MP’s ‘No’ vote leaves pre-born children vulnerable

The president of United for Life BC had harsh criticism for Cloverdale-Langley City MP John Aldag for voting 'No' on Bill C225.

Dear Editor,

An open letter to Cloverdale-Langley City MP John Aldag:

I note that you voted ‘No’ on C225.

This is a grave disappointment to me, and I am sure to your Langley constituents.

During the election campaign, when asked at an all candidates meeting where you stood on the abortion issue, you stated that your own mother was “a card carrying member” of a pro-life organization.

I believe she, more than anyone, would find it difficult to understand how you could not find it in your heart to vote ‘Yes’ on this private members bill.

A vote which would simply have moved discussion of Bill C-225 to the committee stage.

C-225 was drafted to extend the Criminal Code protection to “wanted” pre-born children in Canada.

Your ‘No’ vote leaves them vulnerable to all degrees of violence with no sanction in our justice system.

Your ‘No’ vote was a direct statement to pregnant women that their wanted pregnancies are of no concern to you.

It is worthy to note that each and every single Liberal MP present in the house followed your lead and defeated this bill. That certainly makes it appear that you “toed the party line” on this vote.

If that is the case, then Langley truly does not have an MP representing their wishes.

Seventy per cent of Canadians favoured Mollies Law and you said ‘No.’

A sad day for Mollie, for Langley.

And for your mother.

John Hof, president, United for Life BC, Murrayville
