Apparently the Ontario Trillium Foundation revoked the funds to the Pregnancy Options and Support Centre in Sarnia because Trillium:
"had an issue with the principles that were driving the umbrella organization: CAPPS.” and because "their revised policy now explicitly prohibits the funding of activities that seek to limit the legal rights and activities of Ontarians."Trillium did this based on the word of one anonymous blogger.
What did this anonymous blogger tell Trillium to make them do this? What was the source of the information they used to base their decision to revoke the funds? Was the information vetted as valid, substantiated and factual? Because if it was, the grant money would not have been rescinded.
As a taxpayer funded Ontario group who dispenses with our money, one hopes that such serious decisions to revoke already granted funds is not based on information that in and of itself is grossly inaccurate.
Anyone who knows anything, knows that the Canadian Association of Pregnancy Support Services (CAPSS) would never seek "to limit the legal rights and activities of Ontarians." Except perhaps a cowardly anonymous blogger who has made their mission in life to destroy these CPCs whose work is to support women in crisis pregnancy situations. Maybe the anonymous blogger doesn't like women.
As I've already said, my guess is that Trillium probably received a copy of the National Enquirer-esque Scholarly Document (NESD) penned by pro-abortion Joyce Arthur called Exposing Crisis Pregnancy Centres in BC. A report that was replete with inaccuracies, hearsay and fiction.
Which is kind of ironic, when you remember that Arthur received a cool $27,400 for that piece of nonsense (that never was vetted as valid, substantiated and factual) from Status of Woman Canada. Money that she also never publicly acknowledged receiving, contrary to the rules of these grants.
I've now asked Trillium to tell me what they used to base their revocation of these funds. I've also asked them to read Brian Norton's own rebuttal of Arthur's report.
Trillium needs to base their funding decisions on hard facts and not on fairy tales concocted by people without a name.
Oh. And I also signed my letter with my real name.
