Cardinal Turcotte

I wish to support the Archbishop of Montreal, Cardinal Turcotte, for his return of the prestigious Order of Canada as a protest to the awarding of the Order to an abortionist, Dr. Henry Morgentaler. I understand that many good people have opinions on abortion that differ from mine; I view abortion as the killing of an unborn child, a murder that is usually done for convenience. However, the awarding of Canada's highest honor should not have been made to an abortionist. It is deeply offensive to a large part of the Canadian public and to their religious beliefs. This is an example of the political element in Canada not using good sense and making the Queen and the Governor-General look bad.

As the heir of English-speaking Canada's founder, Sir William Alexander (First Earl of Stirling and Viscount of Canada), and as hereditary Governor & Lord Lieutenant of Canada I do not make comments on Canadian honours, but I am making an exception in this case.

God bless you Cardinal Turcotte for standing up for your faith.
