A few days ago, we reported on fake clinics, aka crisis pregnancy centres, getting government funding.
We wondered what programs these lying liars could possibly qualify for.
So we went looking.
It's tremendously tedious but possible.
One has to search by department or agency.
We went to Service Canada looking for organizations that have received funding and found this or the downloadable/searchable PDF.
Golly gee, in 2015 the Canada Summer Jobs program gave our money to four fake clinics in Alberta.
• Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre: $12,782 (2 jobs)
• Lethbridge Pregnancy Care Centre: $5,817 (1 job)
• Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre Society: $6,038 (1 job)
• Cochrane Pregnancy Care Centre: $3,766 (1 job).
Congratulations, Canadian taxpayers. You/we funded five students just in Alberta just in one year to learn to lie to and manipulate pregnant people at religious fake clinics.
We looked further. The Calgary fake clinic has been receiving federal money to fund summer jobs every year since at least 2010, starting then at $11,000, going up to the present $12,782 (inflation?).
But we're just getting started.
We have identified 22 other fake clinics taking federal money to create summer jobs, some, like the Calgary gang, for several years.
We'll be delving into those in future posts, as time allows. (We do have to make a living. No taxpaying chumps are funding this research.)
