And, right on cue ...


... while PMSHithead is in Switzerland the grip he keeps on a muzzled Contempt Party caucus is not as tight, so Con MP and fundamentalist religious pastor Maurice Vellacott barges into view, revealing yet another facet of the CPC hidden agenda on abortion.

Vellacott's test balloon is this turgid media release about the recent CTV investigative series on pregnancy crisis centres in BC.

Note the quote marks he uses to frame the word investigation throughout this alleged "exposé". Does he expose the fact he is he is a founding Board Member of *Real Choices* Crisis Pregnancy Centre in Saskatoon ... ^NOT.

Vellacott's personal politics have been scrutinized by DJ! - here and here. In 2008 he introduced C-537, a private member's Bill that anticipated the re-criminalization of abortion and birth control - by adding to the Criminal Code an amendment facilitating the prosecution of organizations and individuals whenever any zygote, embryo and fetus fetishist feels threatened or persecuted for their beliefs.

Charter Rights actually provide for the protection of such religious notions so Vellacott's bill was really an anti-abortion tactic disguised as pious interventionist meddling.

Links to Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of the CTV series - an outstanding piece of investigative journalism that is objective and not blinkered by Vellacott's religious dogma as well as his ludicrous claim that "thousands" of women have told him that they were coerced into submitting to a medical intervention to terminate their pregnancies.

Vellacott is quite a piece of work. He set up a defence fund for the "starlight tours" cops in Saskatoon, and is also, not to put too fine a point upon it, a bit of a pig.

Actually, it's mentioned in the very first sentence of the press release that Vellacott is a founding board member of a crisis pregnancy center in Saskatoon. So much for reading the press releases you can be so caustic about.

And did you get any further than the first sentence, Anonymous? I mean, eight pages of duplicitous drivel that Kady O'Malley said was the longest press release she'd ever seen.

Watch this space. Tomorrow, I'm taking on his scholarly *cough* sources.

I'd forgotten that Vellacott was one of the more virulent misogynists who savaged Belinda Stronach.
