Yesterday pro-lifers across North America held Life Chain demonstrations, where for one hour groups ranging from 5 to 50 prayed in a public place for an end to abortion while holding signs saying "Jesus forgives and heals", "Abortion Kills Children" and "Adoption: A loving option".

Hundreds of demonstrations were held all over Canada; and for the first time, Quebec held demonstrations outside of Quebec City and Montreal, spreading out in 11 locations: 3 in downtown Montreal, 2 in Sherbrooke, and one in each of the following locations: Pointe-Claire (West Island of Montreal), Quebec City, Lévis (south of Quebec City), Drummondville, Rawdon, and Sainte-Marcelyne-de-Kildare.

The actions we undertake for faith, family and life in Quebec

I give thanks to God for all the work we've been doing lately on behalf of faith, family and life, from conception to natural death.

There's of course our participation in the fantastic child protection marches across Canada; the good fruits of these exceptional marches are still being harvested!

At the beginning of the month, we were also in Quebec City at the Conservative Party convention, where we were able to put forward a number of pro-family policies that will now have to inform the party's decision-makers on how to proceed in the next election.

The Conservative Party convention also saw the publication of a new French-language anti-abortion leaflet:

Entitled "Five reasons not to have an abortion", this leaflet can save lives! It's the first in a series of a dozen that we'll be putting together on a variety of subjects, including abortion, euthanasia (so-called "medical aid in dying"), marriage, faith, religion and the state, secularism... 

Finally, we're preparing for two upcoming events: the first is the "Life Chain" (see below), the pro-life, anti-abortion demonstrations that will take place this Sunday, October 1, in hundreds of locations across Canada, including a dozen in Quebec (see below).

The second is the 40 Days for Life vigil, which for Quebec this time will be held in Sherbrooke from today, 27 September, until 5 November 2023.

We're also starting the vital autumn 2023 fundraising campaign today. You know that we can only do our job with your loyal support! Please show your support by sending us a donation.

Our target is $12,000. I hope you can help us reach it by the end of our campaign on 18 October.

Meet the leader of the Christian Heritage Party in Montreal

You are invited to meet the leader of the Christian Heritage Party, Mr. Rod Taylor.

This Saturday, September 16th, 2023, Rod Taylor, leader of the Christian Heritage Party will be visiting our QLC offices in Montreal to meet with Quebec supporters.

As the only fully pro-life federal party in Canada, the CHP has an important part to play in making our country more pro-life and more in line with the teachings of Jesus Christ. Mr. Taylor lives in British Columbia and does not often come to Quebec. Take this opportunity to come and meet him and discuss what we can do to make Canada more pro-life.

As director of political operations for QLC, I will also be present to answer questions on an overall pro-life strategy for Quebec and how the CHP can help change the political atmosphere in Quebec.

Most of the presentation will be in English, but we will provide partial French live translations.

3pm, Saturday, September 16th, 2023, at 3330 rue Rivier, Montreal, H1W3Z9 (map here). For all questions, contact me at 438-882-6249 or [email protected]

A drag queen show in a Quebec church?

Perversity in our schools and now, in our churches?

Sadly, it's true: a parish council of the Sacré-Cœur-de-Jésus church in the Saguenay-area municipality also named "Sacré-Coeur" (Sacred-Heart) has reportedly given permission to the Festival du Fjord to schedule a Drag Queen performance in the church itself, a performace which the organizers reassure us will be "family-friendly" in content. Enough is enough. Why this determination to make everything ugly, to desecrate everything? A church is not a concert hall, still less a dubious cabaret where transvestites strut their stuff to please a half-drunk clientele.

We have a duty to make ourselves heard, to oppose such desecration of a sacred place.

That's why we've produced this petition, to convince the parish council to withdraw its permission to use its premises for profane and perverse purposes.

Please sign! >>


We invite you to our annual Corn Roast on Saturday, August 12, 2023, at 3330 rue Rivier, Montréal, H1W 3Z9 (behind Saint-Émile church); parking available on site; public transit, STM: Joliette metro, 3rd stop on bus no. 67.

Admission: $10

Program :

Noon - Corn on the cob
1 p.m. - Speeches
1:45 p.m. - Question period
3 p.m. - End of event and clean-up

The keynote address will be given by Dr. Paul Saba, a Montreal physician affiliated with Lachine Hospital, on issues surrounding respect for life. Dr. Saba is a well-known figure in the media and government, having taken a public stand in favor of respect for life from conception to natural death. He will address a number of topics, including his personal experience with the doctors who recommended abortion for his youngest child, and his fight against medical aid in dying, otherwise known as euthanasia. His presentation will begin around 1 p.m.

Being Active

Summer is here and the weather these past few days leave no doubt about that – sunny, hot, and humid.

While doing the daily outdoor vigil, I’m blessed not only by the morning freshness but also to stand in the shadow of a large skyscraper. Also, once the sun climbs above this building, I can cross over to the other side of the street where shade has yet to disappear. This second spot suffices for the balance of the morning vigil.

This morning’s vigil had some drama. Not long after my arrival, I noticed a young couple who had parked their car not far from where I stood, yet within the zone that I am prevented by law from crossing into. With bated breath, I watched them closely awaiting a moment they would look in my direction permitting me to show them my pregnant support sign. This moment never came. The couple eventually entered the building where the abortion facility has its offices. I was disappointed.

Yet I was consoled in three ways. First, I was joined by Mary. She faithfully comes weekly, staying for about an hour and reciting with me a variety of prayers.

Next Karen arrived, a local homeless person whom I have come to know over the years, She frequently asks for alms. This morning was no different. I told her that I would buy her some food were she to wait but another fifteen minutes, the time remaining in my daily vigil. I have stopped giving her cash as she has a history of substance abuse. She didn’t wait.

Finally, my initial disappointment was allayed by several well-wishers who affirmed our presence. While Mary and I were praying, a woman walked over to thank us and immediately thereafter a first gentleman and then a second acknowledged their support with a smile and a gesture as they continued their way.

I wish to thank you for your on-going support of this and other activities we do at the Quebec Life Coalition (QLC). If you wish to help us further, consider making a donation HERE.

On the topic of our activities, this past June we did a similar public testimony - a walking pilgrimage through the streets of downtown Montreal. Since its inception in 2017, we have hosted eight different pilgrimages, different in terms of path taken but alike in that each stopping near abortion facilities where prayers of reparation for the lives lost and the families wounded by abortion were done. Over the years, we have prayed outside thirteen abortion centres.

With approximately 30 000 abortions per year in Quebec alone, the task before us, the end abortion, is monumental. Yet, we take courage in knowing that the fight is not our own but that of Our Lord. We are mere instruments. In humility we subordinate ourselves to the Divine Will in varied ways and so when miracles happen, when women and the public change see the harm of abortion, we know that it is not of our own doing but His.

This summer we will also be active politically as four of us will attend the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) national convention planned for Quebec City the first week of September. We are planning to attend as delegates so as to vote in favour of pro-life policies into that party’s platform.

Why the Conservatives? The other federal policies – the Liberals, the New Democrats, the Bloc Québecois, are unmoved and unrepentant in their lack of defense for the protection of unborn life. And though only about 40% of the CPC membership is pro-life, we at the QLC are networking with other Canadian groups to bolster this number and vote in solid pro-life policies.

Lastly, we are not forgetful of being active recreationally. Our annual corn-on-the-cob is scheduled for Saturday, August 12, 2023. Open to all, this afternoon event – corn will be served beginning at noon and clean up will be begin around 3pm, has yet to disappoint.

As in years past, we have a guest speaker, Dr. Paul Saba, MD. The doctor is a public figure well known in his defense of life from conception to natural death.

Christ alone, who is Life itself, touches hearts, making them accept sacrifices which necessarily form part of a life in a society which respects every human being at every stage of its development.

Thank you for you ongoing support at building a culture of life.

Sincerely Yours,

A Pro-Life Society is a Non-Liberal, Religious Society

Protests at the Supreme Court of the United States on the day Roe vs Wade was overturned.
"2022.06.24 Roe v Wade Overturned – SCOTUS, Washington, DC USA 175 143227" by Ted Eytan is licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0

By Georges Buscemi, President of Campagne Québec-Vie

Last year’s reversal of the Roe vs. Wade decision in the U.S. may have prompted some to believe that a tectonic shift was underway in favour of the protection of unborn life in the U.S. and around the world. However, this stunning pro-life victory, which abolishes any so-called “right” to abortion in the U.S. and grants states the right to limit—or liberalize—abortion as they see fit, as epochal as it may be, should motivate pro-lifers to deepen their view of the battle against abortion, if they wish to make any long-term progress. For, as I have argued elsewhere, the fight over abortion is symptomatic of a deeper cultural battle between two opposing worldviews: the first an a-religious “liberal” worldview, and the second a non-liberal, religious worldview. While the fall of Roe is good news for the pro-life side, the ultimate defeat of abortion will depend on each country’s success, on both an individual and societal level, at rejecting the “pro-choice” or liberal worldview and adopting the religious one.

My diagnosis seems to have been at least partially confirmed by a recent Pew Research Center study on Global Attitudes to Abortion and Religion. Published on June 20, this international survey of 24 countries in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia, first reveals a disturbing truth, that favourable attitudes towards legal abortion predominate in Europe and North America. In Canada, for example, over 75% of the population agrees that abortion should be legal in all or most cases, whereas 17% wishes it were illegal. In the UK, 84% of the population favours legal abortion and 14% opposes it, while in the U.S., 62% believe that abortion should remain legal in all or most cases, whereas 36% say the opposite. In certain European countries, the situation is far more dire: in Sweden, for example, an overwhelming 95% of the population thinks abortion should be legal in all or most cases, with a barely measurable remnant of 2 or 3 percent thinking otherwise.

But what I consider the most interesting part of this study is its demonstration that attitudes to abortion are very closely related to attitudes towards religion. This study shows that in country after country, with very few exceptions, religious adherence (or lack thereof) precisely predicts whether the country will be disposed or not to legalizing abortion. In Indonesia, for example, where 97% of the country’s 274 million people deem religion to be “very” important, fully 83% think that abortion should be illegal in all or most cases. Conversely, in the land of Ikea (Sweden) where 95% agree that abortion should be legal in all or most cases, a corresponding 74% believe religion to be not at all or not too important to them. In other words, the more religious, the more pro-life and conversely, the more a-religious, the more “pro-choice” or favourable to legal abortion.

Saint John the Baptist, the Fall of Roe, and the Fall of Rome

Today in Quebec is Saint John the Baptist Day. Over a century ago, in 1908, Pope Pius X had declared the saint Patron of all Franco-Canadians. Several decades later, the Quebec government would declare June 24 a holiday for all Quebecers.

Saint John the Baptist Day

We read in Luke 1:39–45 that John was sanctified in the womb when his mother, Elisabeth, was visited by the Blessed Virgin Mary, a relative, who carried in her womb Jesus Christ, God incarnate, as an unborn child.

John was known to live in complete poverty in the desert, to wear clothes made of camel hair and eat locusts and wild honey, enjoining his followers to “Make straight the way of the Lord”, that is, to prepare their hearts to the coming of a humble and meek Saviour. As the embodiment of the prophets of old and precursor to the Messiah, John had a special mission: he was to complete the preparation of Israel for the coming of its Christ (its “anointed”), the Son of God.

As it was for the people of Israel, in every soul today that accepts truth, there must be a “precursor” event, a “making straight”—a repentance—which allows that soul to accept the truth when it comes knocking.

At Quebec Life Coalition, we endeavour to carry out the work of Saint John the Baptist in Quebec today, enjoining Quebecers to repent of their sins against Life and Family and make room in their hardened hearts for God. Compared to our opponents, we too are extremely poor. Like John the Baptist, we preach with hoarse voices in a modern spiritual desert.

The Fall of Roe

June 24, 2023, is also the first-year anniversary of the fall of Roe v. Wade, a 1973 U.S. supreme court decision that had opened the gates to abortion in the world’s most influential country, costing over 60 million lives since, in the U.S. alone. With last year’s June 24th Supreme Court decision to reverse Roe, abortion would no longer be imposed on all 50 U.S. states: each state may henceforth legislate on abortion as it pleases. Many have nearly banned the deadly practice.

Though a great cry of victory and celebration could be heard on the pro-life side on the day of the fall of Roe, a media-amplified cry of rage was also heard. In Quebec, decision makers and cultural elites were already plotting on how to prevent the pro-life victory from spilling over into the resolutely “pro-choice” province. Recently, Martine Biron, minister in charge of women’s affairs, has pledged to do all in her power to “enshrine” “abortion rights” in Quebec.

The Fall of Rome

Each soul is made for God. Like a tree that would withdraw its roots from the moist soil, a soul that withdraws from the grace of God and curls up on itself, content with its own thoughts and fancies, will soon dry up. A society of such individuals cannot but become a spiritual and moral desert. As deep calls to deep (Psalm 42:7), emptiness calls forth more emptiness (Matthew 25:29), and our modern societies, by spurning repentance and denying room for God are only shutting themselves into an ironclad globalist system that will serve as a stepping stool for the anti-Christ. Denying Christ, they will have anti-Christ.

On this Saint John the Baptist Day, whatever the course our society takes, let us choose Life. Let us repent of our sins, make way for Christ, and enjoin others to do the same. For our true home is not the earthly Rome, but the Heavenly Jerusalem.

God bless,

Georges Buscemi, President

Our fight against the depopulation agenda

Our movement, Quebec Life Coalition, was founded in 1989 by Gilles Grondin, a former Canadian diplomat. He had been hired by Campaign Life Coalition, a pan-Canadian pro-life group, to attend United Nations international conferences. It was well known, even at that time, that certain players among the international elite had put in place a programme to reduce the world’s population, and that these plans had to be thwarted by uniting pro-life countries on an international scale. In addition, Mr. Grondin had widely circulated document NSSM 200, produced by the US National Security Council in 1974 (declassified in the late 1980s), which advocated reducing the population of developing countries to guarantee easy access to their natural resources and thus maintain US hegemony.

Quebec Life Coalition has always understood that abortion and other attacks on human life are part of hidden agendas set up on a global scale and financed to the tune of billions. We also understand that, ultimately, these attacks on life are the manifestation of evil spiritual powers, and their ultimate defeat can only be achieved by spiritual means.

Our work is therefore one of patient restoration of souls and societies to foster a culture of faith, family and life, from conception to natural death. We accomplish this work in various ways:

  1. "Pregnant and Worried” help line (1-855-871-4442);
  2. Regular broadcasts on Théovox
  3. News site ( and presence on social networks (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube);
  4. Monthly publication of our paper newsletter;
  5. QLC conferences;
  6. Events and prayer vigils, including:
  7. Participation in politics at the federal, provincial, municipal and school board levels;
  8. Lobbying at the United Nations and other international bodies;
  9. Legal action, e.g. legal action against the 50-metre no-go zone around abortion centres in Quebec;
  10. Regular meetings and calls with other members of the pro-life movement in Canada and elsewhere in the world;

We have our work cut out for us in Quebec. As you can see, we’re working hard on many fronts. We’re doing what we can, but our material resources come from you. Please help us develop a pro-life opposition to stand up to the pro-abortion establishment in this province. Help us today.

If you’ve already donated to our summer fundraising campaign—and many have—thank you from the bottom of my heart. To date, we have raised $5584. But we only have 6 days to raise the difference, i.e. $6,416. Please give generously to help us reach our goal.

God bless you,

News on that cancelled "pro-life" event in Quebec City

Christian group Harvest Ministries, which was kicked out of the Quebec City Convention Centre by Tourism Minister Caroline Proulx for being too pro-life for her, has finally found a new location in Old Quebec for its prayer event to be held this week.

However, the organisers have decided not to make the new location public, so as not to aggravate a situation that is already bordering on madness. We are, after all, in a soft, anti-life, anti-Christian dictatorship. Anyone interested in joining this event can contact the organizers directly at [email protected] or by telephone 236-420-1716.

Fortunately, not everyone agrees with the Legault government's censorship of pro-life views. Our petition against this censorship of pro-lifers in Quebec has passed the 8,000-signature mark.

I was on Nomos-TV today for an over 2-hour discussion on the pro-life struggle in Quebec. Among other things, we discussed Minister Martine Biron's plan to make the so-called "right" to abortion (which is not a right) "immutable" in Quebec. It's in French only, unfortunately. But you can click here if you understand French.

Georges Buscemi on Nomos-TV: "Interview with Georges Buscemi -- The Pro-Life Battle in Quebec"

You can also watch my latest interview on Théovox last Thursday, the last programme before the summer break. In this French-language interview, we talked about the admirable resistance of parents against LGBT ideology (QI2S+...) in Canadian schools.

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to our summer fundraiser. We've raised a total of $3,728 but still have an uphill battle to raise $8,272 in 8 days. If you haven't had a chance yet, please donate today.

Through our interviews, videos, writings and actions, we must continue to develop a space in Quebec society for pro-life, pro-family and pro-God discourse. For too long, the revolution against God and nature has controlled almost the entire field. With your help, we can resist. To help us develop a pro-life opposition that will stand up to the pro-abortion establishment in Quebec, please give what you can today.

We fellow pro-lifers have to band together

The pro-lifers who organized an event in Quebec City need our help!

As you probably have heard, B.C.-based Harvest ministry’s plans to put on a 10-day event at Quebec City’s Convention Centre was shot down by an unprecedented intervention by Quebec Minister of Tourism Caroline Proulx, who decided by fiat that the group renting the government-owned facility was too pro-life for her.

Her colleague, Minister of Women’s affairs Martine Biron, concurred. She’s busy trying to find ways to “enshrine” the right to abortion in Quebec. You can understand why Proulx found it difficult to tolerate pro-life Christians using her facilities while her colleague was labouring to keep killing babies in the womb legal and perfectly acceptable in the minds of Quebecers.

As a representative of Quebec’s pro-life community, I was interviewed by Radio Canada (French CBC) on what I thought about this state censorship of pro-lifers. My interviewer was trying to downplay the impact this censorship would have on Haverst ministry and pro-lifers in general, saying that there were many other places we could gather for pro-life events. My answer was immediate: this move by the government would have a profound chilling effect, warning anyone who would accept to host pro-lifers that they would pay a heavy price for doing so. 

QLC President Georges Buscemi being interviewed by French CBC about the censorship of pro-lifers in Quebec. (Click here for video—French only)

Let’s be clear: Even though the government only literally owns three (albeit very important) conference centres and large venues—the Quebec Convention Centre, the Montreal Convention Centre, and the Olympic Stadium complex—the Quebec government has its tentacles everywhere. They basically have a stake in every business, in the form of subsidies or other advantages it grants to these. Take media, for example: without government advertising, many media outlets would not survive in their current form. Is it a surprise that they fall over each other to dutifully parrot government talking points? They know who butters their bread.

In other words, and this I made clear to the suspiciously naive CBC reporter, that not only will Harvest be kicked out of government facilities, but they will find it very, very difficult to find a substitute home for their event, given that all the other venue owners will be afraid to make a stand for Life or even for free expression, over and against the wishes of the Quebec government.

Lo and behold, this is exactly what is happening. Harvest Ministries has yet to find a substitute location for even a paired-down version of their event. Whereas they had originally hoped to welcome about 1000 people a day for 10 days starting June 22, they now are looking to host about 200–300 people a day. But no venue will have them as of this writing.

Therefore, if you or anyone you know may have contacts in Quebec City, who know of a location to house such an event for 200–300 people, please let us know by answering this email! We fellow pro-lifers have to band together in the face of government persecution!

Finally, we are in the midst of our summer fundraiser. We are looking to raise $12,000 in 2 weeks. Our last email was successful, and we warmly thank all donors. But we still have $10,568 to raise in 10 days. If you haven’t yet had the chance, please donate today.

We must continue growing to form a loyal opposition to this disloyal, bullying government. They have had full control of the playing field for too long. They need to be resisted. But this cannot happen without your help. To help us develop a pro-life opposition to stand up to the pro-abortion establishment in this province, please give what you can today.

God bless,
