Dr Leonie Herx: Without my conscience rights, I cannot be a good physician for my patients.

Dr Leonie Herx, the past President of the Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians and chair of the division of palliative medicine at Queen’s University.

I’ve been practising palliative medicine for 12 years.

Very easily, conscience is made to be about religion when actually its about my professional integrity as a physician who is trained.

Bishop in Philippines Tells Typhoon Victims Not to Lose Hope

A Catholic bishop has told the victims of recent typhoons that claimed lives and destroyed properties not to give up, reported CBCP News.

Bishop Joel Baylon of Legazpi, in a message issued Nov. 14, urged the survivors to face the devastation “with new hope and a firm resolve to rise from the ruins and build again”.

The bishop has admitted it’s hard to explain why such disasters happened but said that people are called to cling to faith.

Chemin Neuf: ‘A Life Without Risk Isn’t Christian,’ Was Pope’s Message

“A life without risk isn’t Christian,” warns Pope Francis in a video filmed by a French delegation of the Chemin Neuf [“New Way”] Community, which arrived in the Vatican on November 12, 2020. “The Lord will not leave you alone,” he also affirms.

On receiving Father Francois Michon, in charge of the Community, with its founder, Father Laurent Fabre, accompanied by Father Etienne Veto, the Pontiff expressed words of encouragement on the spot: “Brothers and sisters,” he said in the video posted on Twitter at the end of the day, I know that you call yourselves Chemin Neuf: I know that you are on the way.”

“To be on the way is to advance, it’s not to turn around, it’s not doing tourism, <and> it’s not to enter a labyrinth. But to be on the way means to advance, and there is a risk, there is always a risk. But a life without risk is not Christian,” he added.

Dr. Catherine Frazee – Justice Committee Parliamentary Hearing – Bill C-7 begs the question, why us, why only us?

Catherine Frazee, Professor Emerita, Ryerson University School of Disability Studies.

I speak today from the Mi’kma’ki the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. I am a settler here bound by treaties of peace and friendship, and mindful that we are, all of us, treaty people.

Madame Chair, I am sorry for any discomfort that my words may trigger. But with so little time I must speak frankly and without reserve.
