Conference on euthanasia at St-Simon Catholic Church --Photo: Facebook/Brigade Verte
A conference on euthanasia was organized in a Catholic church in Rimouski on November 6th, 2022, a Sunday afternoon.
A conference on "MAID" or "Medical Aid In Dying" was organized at St-Simon's church in Rimouski with the neurosurgeon and president of the Quebec Association for the Right to Die in Dignity (AQDMD)Dr. Georges l'Espérance. The conference was organized by La Brigade Verte de Saint-Simon which is a secular organization that describes itself as a "beautification project for the municipality of Saint-Simon-de-Rimouski", according to their Facebook page.

La Brigade Verte works on the embellishment of the exterior of the St-Simon church for example by planting roses around the cemetery. When asked about the group's participation in the organization of a conference on euthanasia in a Catholic church, one of the leaders, Ms. Chantale, explained: "We facilitated contacts between Mr. Beaudoin, the person in charge of the church, and Dr. l'Espérance, who is part of the brigade. It was to help the church so that there would be a little money coming in, as you know the churches in Quebec are struggling financially... all the contributions that people gave were for the church. This information was later confirmed in conversation with the head of the church and president of the Fabrique, Beaudoin Gagnon.1 reaction Read more
A cursory glance at social media tells us that the “news of the day” is Donald Trump’s official decision to run for the 2024 US presidency. In the past we’ve spoken at length about Trump—his obvious and very public flaws but also his significant contributions to the cause of Life, not least being his key Supreme Court appointments, which have proven decisive in allowing for the reversal of the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973, which had forced US states to allow the killing of babies before birth. Thanks to Trump, now states are free to outlaw abortion within their borders.
But today I don’t want to talk about the billionaires, like Trump, who run world affairs at the highest levels. I rather want to talk about us so-called “little people,” who seldom get “media coverage.” Specifically, I want to talk about YOU.
Each day is a “newsworthy” day for you because each day you decide whether to turn to God, or away from Him. Each day is a landmark, red-letter day, when the cameras of all the heavenly host are pointed at you, waiting for you to declare your “yes” to God’s will.
Each day may be your last.
Each day is an opportunity to ask yourself: am I making the most of my time, of my life? Am I living life to the fullest?
Each day is unique, as every life is unique. Each person has a calling. You may be called to care for a loved one at home. You may rear children. You may be a grandparent with most of your life behind you. Whatever your situation, it all depends on what you do, today. If God calls, will you say Yes or No?
You might think “Politics” is a dirty word, a synonym for “compromise” or “hypocrisy.” It may have become that, but in its essence, it is the opposite of those things. Politics is just love of neighbour, flowing from love of God.
Saying "Yes" to Godly Politics
A “yes” to God is a “yes” to Godly politics. But we’ve been told that there is no such thing as “Godly politics” and that people in positions of power and influence should leave their “religion” at the door. This is a lie from Hell. For how is one supposed to do good if one willingly chooses to ignore The One who is Goodness Himself?
Today is a new day, and I am inviting you to become a “politician.” By that I don’t mean that you should buy expensive suits and get your teeth whitened, your face tucked and your skin artificially tanned, to better appear on camera.
What I mean is that, if you are reading this, you could be very well be the type of person who could do some good in a position of responsibility and of service. And we need you! We at Quebec Life Coalition can pontificate about life, family and faith until the end of time, but unless you decide to say “yes,” we will be wasting our time.
There are many opportunities for Godly politicians. And we all already have “political experience” of some kind. A Godly politician, as I have said, is a person who loves God above all things, sees his fellow citizens with the eyes of God and therefore desires their well-being. Whether he be the boss of a towing company or a father in charge of a family, he is a type of politician because he has power and influence, and what he says and does can help or hinder the development of the humans under his care.
I haven’t yet spoken of elected office because I think that by rushing to this topic, I will not have conveyed my point: a politician’s purpose is not to be popular, loved or adulated, it is to lovingly serve his fellow citizens by using the power and influence at his disposal.
Only God knows the good. So, the politician must intimately know God and His will:
- Does God want babies killed in abortion?
- Does God want men parading as women to lecture to children about "converting" to the opposite sex?
- Does God want marriage to be travestied and vicious “alternate lifestyles” to be celebrated?
The politician, whether he be the head of a family, the president of a music club, the leader of a farm Co-op, the president of an electoral district association, by knowing God and doing His Will, spreads God’s truth, goodness, and beauty around him, using the means at his disposal.
Also, we live in a democracy. That means that many (but far from all) positions of power and influence are obtained by popular vote. Some of these positions are:
- School board trustee—those in charge of what children are taught in schools
- City councillors—those in charge of running cities, and spending city budgets on good rather than perverse things
- City mayors—those in charge of leading cities, and setting priorities for a city: is it “green” initiatives only, or is it Life and Family, under God?
- Provincial MPP, MNA, MHA, MLA, these are all acronyms which signify being a member of one’s provincial or territorial parliament or assembly. These elected officials are responsible for their “riding” or electoral district. Together, they run the provincial government. They have billions at their disposal to do good, or to spread evil. Provincial governments are responsible for education, the teaching of our children and the formation of the next generation. This is very important.
- Finally, we have members of our federal parliament. They also each represent a small parcel of Canadian territory called a “district” or riding, with roughly 100,000 souls living in them. Laws against killing babies in the womb or killing the aged and infirm in a hospital setting would be voted upon at the federal level, at the House of Commons in Ottawa.
Furthermore, elected officials very often are members of political parties, which themselves have many elected positions, such as President of electoral district associations. Also, candidates who run for elections are often first elected by the members of a given political party.
As you can see, there are many opportunities to serve. There is much to do. The question is, who will say “yes” and step up?
We are asking you today to consider serving your fellow citizens in a position of power and influence. Will you accept responsibility, and refuse to hide behind convenient excuses to avoid the pains and challenges that come with doing the right thing and angering the right people?
If you feel called, please click here. My colleagues or myself will contact you as soon as we can, to discuss how you could serve your fellow citizen. We want to help you help Canada move forward, from a place where babies are slaughtered at an industrial rate, and the sick and vulnerable euthanatized, to a place where life is valued at every step.
God bless you on this, the most important, most “newsworthy” day of your life. I hope to hear that you’ve said “yes” today to our call for help.
Yours for Life,
P.S.: We may be a Quebec-based organization, but if you live outside of Quebec, please don’t hesitate to answer our call anyway. We will get you in touch with a local faith-filled pro-life group that can guide you in the next steps to contributing your talent and time to the common good.

The CHSLD (long term care centers) and the government are being sued by the families of the abandoned seniors for $15M.
Finally, after two years and more of this drama that took place in the CHSLD due to the tyrannical sanitary measures imposed by the government, those responsible will have to answer in court. Groups such as Les Macarons de la dignité and our organization Quebec Life Campaign are working hard to reveal the truth about the hecatomb of 6700 victims who were abandoned during the pandemic between spring 2020 and 2021.
Yves Poirier of TVA nouvelles reports that "The lawsuit was filed in court last September, but it has now increased from $9M to $15M as two new families are claiming punitive damages."
A documentary was also produced on this subject by Sylvain Laforest which is titled "CHSLD - Je me souviens". It has been circulating on social networks since the end of September 2022. Could it have inspired more families to claim compensation? Would it have given the families of the victims the courage to honor their lives? The time has come for someone to be held accountable for all those neglected, abused and possibly euthanized lives.1 reaction Read more
Have we euthanized our seniors in long term care center (CHSLD) between the spring of 2020 and 2021?
The "CHSLD - Je me souviens" documentary ["Long term care centers - I remember"], about the hecatomb of nearly 6700 seniors in those residencies, has been circulating on social networks since September 30th, 2022.
The french group called "Macarons de la Dignité" organized a private screening of the film in September, which I attended and where I met the documentary director, Sylvain Laforest. We had a first interview during that evening.
Sylvain Laforest during the private screening of his documentary « CHSLD - Je me souviens »
Sylvain has directed more than a hundred documentaries for major broadcasting networks, then worked as a journalist for the news channel RT-France as well as in video journalism for Nous-TV St-Hyacinthe. Currently, he lives from the sale of his books and dedicates his time to projects that are close to his heart, such as the making of this documentary on abandoned seniors in Quebec's long term care centers.
The following is our second interview, which goes into more detail about the drama that occurred in Quebec's long term care residencies. Before our interview, Mr. Laforest insisted that I be on first-name terms with him.
Joanna: At what point did you realize that something was wrong with the long term care centers (CHSLD)?
Sylvain Laforest: As early as March 2020. By the way, I wrote a book in 2015 called « La déprogrammation » ["The Deprogramming"] in which I already talked about a pandemic, so when it started, I knew it was the operation they were launching. However, I didn't think it would last as long as it did. When I saw the hecatomb that was being caused in the senior residencies, I began to ask around to find out what was going on and I saw that it was the government that was putting in place measures that were absolutely grotesque and that were certain to make victims, because they were talking about a lack of care from the start.
When a government encourages panic rather than problem solving, you see, already that it is in a mode of system destruction.
Joanna: How did you find the people for the testimonies of the documentary "CHSLD - Je me souviens"?
S.L: It was the Macarons de la Dignité gang that approached me. At first, it was to promote them. Then they proposed to interview people about what happened and to build a promotional campaign from that. So, I said to them "If I can get these people to come and do interviews, I can do long interviews and make a documentary", so I suggested some names. I approached Robert Béliveau and Lucie Mandeville. Alain Roy was proposed to me and Claude Laferrière, he is a well-known lawyer who was already denouncing a lot. The anonymous nurse came forward when I made the call for the general public to come and witness through their personal stories.
I wanted to touch on several areas. With Lucie Mandeville, I had the psychological aspect, with Dr. Béliveau, I had the medical aspect, and so on. I have made 115 documentaries so far and I'm very used to structuring those. The other documentaries I have done were for the mainstream media.
Joanna: Can we conclude today that the surge in deaths that have been called "coronavirus-related" that are counted up to date in long term care centers in Quebec is completely false?
S.L: What they have done with their measures is that they have accelerated the deaths of people who would have survived another year or two. People go to long term care residencies at the end of life, they are already very fragile. In order for the pandemic (which is ultimately the flu) to look like a pandemic, they had to cause some sort of mortality peak. False cases, false emergencies, you can create them statistically, but deaths, you can't. Either people die, or people don't die. When people die, you inflate the statistics.
If you look at the statistics, the deaths that occurred in the spring of 2020, it's how the first wave was created. But if you compare the spring of 2020, with the year 2021 and 2022, it balances out. So these are people for whom we have accelerated their death. We can observe the same stratagy everywhere, in Italy, France, the State of New York, etc.
This first false wave was created with a lack of care.
The documentary makes us realize that simply denying access to these people’s natural family caregivers is the end for them. What's the point of going on living if you can't even see the people you love anymore? The people who are your last link to life...
You can't just lie about the statistics and hope to create a wave from the common flu.1 reaction Read more
The Santa Claus parade is coming to Montreal. This November 19, young and old alike will line the streets of the city to watch a procession of reindeer, elves, Santa Claus and … a drag queen? If for you “one of these things is not like the other”, then you may want to check out our petition to the Montreal Downtown Business Development Corporation (MDBDC), organizers of the annual Santa Claus Parade in downtown Montreal.
They seem to think that after two years of forced confinement, Montreal families will want to come back to an abandoned Montreal downtown core to watch a winter-themed LGBT pride parade featuring “Barbada”, the city’s “lovable” drag queen, who stirred controversy earlier in the year by touring the city’s children’s libraries with his “drag queen story hours”.
Some might consider these “drag queens” to be “lighthearted” and “fun”, but there’s a sinister side to this trend. Via these “funny and eccentric” characters, every other day in our schools and libraries, children are being conditioned into believing that men can be women, and women can be men. These lies, repeated over and over, have dire consequences on the mental and physical health of our children. In the US, as many as 121,882 children between the ages of 6 and 17 were diagnosed with gender dysphoria or confusion about their sex, between 2017 and 2021. Tragically, many of these children have gone on to undertake dangerous and irreversible hormone therapy and surgeries, which will mark them forever.
I for one have had it with every single cultural event being appropriated by LGBT ideologues and turned into a child-indoctrination session for their anti-family movement. If you, like me, would just like to have an event or two represent traditional family values, then sign and share our petition today:
p.s. You don’t have to be from Montreal to sign this petition. Montreal, and the province of Quebec in general, is like a laboratory for the rest of Canada. If they try something “progressive” and subversive here without it encountering any resistance, then they won’t hesitate to export it to the rest of the country and beyond. So please sign, wherever you are from. Let’s work together to protect our kids and stop this “drag queen” trend from ruining childhoods and Christmas itself!

A transvestite will be present as the ''Star Fairy'' at this year's Montreal Santa Claus Parade.
After two years of cancellation due to the pandemic, Barbada, a transvestite, will be present at the Santa Claus Parade on St-Catherine Street in the Quartier des spectacles, on November 19th, starting at 11 am. The event is organized by Montréal Centre-Ville, a non-profit organization with nearly 5,000 member businesses.
This year marks the 70th edition of the Santa Claus Parade, but it is the first time that a transvestite will participate in it. According to the Montreal Downtown website, this is an annual tradition for more than 400,000 spectators, and the event will also be aired on the TVA network on Sunday, November 20th at 4 p.m. According to organizers, this is the largest holiday event in Quebec.
"The Santa Claus Parade is a great family tradition that has been going on for 70 years in downtown Montreal. It inaugurates the winter season, which we hope will be just as exceptional as the summer we just had. Whether it's to welcome Santa Claus, spend a holiday with family, gather with colleagues or start holiday shopping, downtown is still the place to be for all Quebecers," said Glenn Castanheira, Executive Director of Montréal Centre-Ville.
Since the announcement of drag queen Barbada's participation in the Montreal Santa Claus parade on November 19th downtown, the outrage was evident on social networks and is spreading, according to Frédérique de Simone of the Journal de Montréal.1 reaction Read more
A nurse at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal informed Quebec Life Coalition that late-term abortions, i.e. at 21 weeks gestation or more, are performed on a "weekly" basis at this famous Montreal hospital.
According to the hospital's website, the hospital was founded in 1934 and is considered a teaching hospital that is one of the largest and busiest acute care hospitals in the province.
A nurse at the hospital, who wishes to remain anonymous, contacted us after realizing that an abortion had taken place in her workplace at 24 weeks of pregnancy for the eugenic reason of having Down syndrome.
"I work at the Jewish General Hospital as a nurse. Last week, I discovered that there was a woman 24 weeks pregnant with a child with Down syndrome who was in the case room for a "therapeutic abortion". I was devastated to see such a late-term abortion take place at my workplace. Because I was so upset, I asked Brian [Vice President of Quebec Life Coalition - ed.] to pray for this child and his mother. Unfortunately, the abortion took place and I still pray that the woman will realize the atrocity that happened and seek healing through God's mercy" shares the nurse.
"I saw another "therapeutic abortion" on the schedule this week at 33 weeks, it happened again, I never realized before how often they take place" - Photo: Unsplash
She adds, "I had heard before that abortions take place at the hospital where I work, obviously, but for the most part I was under the impression that they take place at a less advanced stage, at less weeks, not to say it's better, but the procedure is much less complicated at less weeks. I thought the hospital did them up to 8 weeks, but I learned through a colleague that late-stage abortions also take place in the case room and that we have to respect that..."
She also sadly added, "I saw another therapeutic abortion on the schedule this week at 33 weeks, it happened again, I never realized previously how often they happen."
After our interview, the nurse reported to me that according to her co-worker, these "procedures" occur on a weekly basis.
She concluded, "What I find frightening is that this child was aborted at 24 weeks at the hospital where I work while we have an excellent intensive care unit and we have so many babies at 24 or 27 weeks who are living because of this intensive care that we provide! So it's stupefying. If the patient wants to keep the baby, we do everything we can to keep the baby alive. We put it in an incubator, we give it oxygen and even a tube to feed it. We do so many interventions because the mother wants to keep the child. But, if the mother suddenly decides she wants an abortion (at 21 weeks or more), that's what we end up doing.

Samuel David at 9 months old with the 3 other children and his family
Catherina David is a stay at home mom of four kids who contacted us to share the beautiful testimony of her youngest child, Samuel David. She reached out to us at first for prayer and support on her pregnancy journey. Today, she wants to share with us, in detail, how her story unveiled. She discovered she was pregnant at almost 9 weeks into her pregnancy while she was moving from Quebec to Ontario.
She was very excited and happy about her new pregnancy initially. Her doctor asked her to do an additional test when she was 5 months pregnant, through which she learned that her baby had trisomy 21 (Down syndrome).
After having delivered three perfectly healthy children, it was certainly a big shock to her. She admits that she was devastated and didn't know how to react. She cried the whole day when she found out the news, and then the whole week after it.
When she met with her doctor after learning the news, he said to her “I leave it up to you whether you want to keep the baby, if you want to continue the pregnancy or if you want to terminate it we will make it as easy as possible for you, but you will have to go to the hospital and have a regular childbirth delivery”.
She went to the Jewish General hospital for the abortion, before she decided to change her mind and keep the baby. Catherina, was guided by her faith and a dream she believes was from God that helped her resist the temptation to end the life of her child.1 reaction Read more
Thank you to everyone who has so far signed our petition against child euthanasia in Canada. Reminder: Once again Quebec is initiating the next step in Canada's race to the abyss. Dr. Louis Roy, representing the Quebec College of Physicians before the House of Commons Special Joint Committee on "Medical Assistance in Dying", recently proposed the euthanasia of infants with "severe malformations" and "severe and serious syndromes". You can read the rest of this sordid story here.
If you know someone who could sign, or haven't yet done so yourself, please read and share this petition now, as we are trying to get over 1000 signatures. And we haven't finished pushing back against this insane idea of killing handicapped babies. On top of this petition, we will soon be postcarding around Montreal, where the College of Physicians is headquartered, to inform the local population about the dark plans being hatched right in their midst.
So once again, I urge you to sign our petition against the euthanasia of infants and to have it signed around you. Let's say NO to the killing of so-called imperfect children.

The 40 Days for Life in Sherbrooke
This fall, hundreds of communities across North America and several Canadian cities simultaneously organized a 40 Days for Life campaign from September 28 to November 6, 2022.
This fall, hundreds of communities across North America and several Canadian cities simultaneously organized a 40 Days for Life campaign from September 28 to November 6, 2022.
The 40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:
- 40 days of prayer and fasting to end abortion
- 40 days of peaceful vigil
- 40 days of community awareness
I was present in Sherbrooke on the 31st day to report on this event. Brian Jenkins, who is the leader of the team, was on place to give me a warm welcome. This man spends 12 hours a day outside, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. during the 40 days, as an advocate for life. He takes a break at noon, during which Mr. Gerard replaces him, for the entire length of the 40-day vigil. The vigil participants vary from day to day, but Brian and Gerard are present daily.
By law, Brian and the other participants must not be within 50 meters of a facility where abortions take place, in this case the CLSC Belvédère (Local Community Services Center). So far, there have been no counter-demonstrators, whereas last year a pro-choice group of 100 people gathered against 3-4 people who were doing the vigil. Gerard shares with me that the Sherbrooke police supported the vigil participants last year, and since then they have been supported by the Sherbrooke authorities. Brian has a working relationship with the police of Sherbrooke and can count on them for their help to maintain their safety.
