These grants were made under the Canada Summer Jobs program which has specific criteria.
Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to help employers create summer job opportunities for students. It is designed to focus on local priorities, while helping both students and their communities.
Canada Summer Jobs:
• provides work experiences for students
• supports organizations, including those that provide important community services; and
• recognizes that local circumstances, community needs and priorities vary widely
Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to create summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.
Anti-choice gangs -- including fake clinics -- have been bilking it for years, but the ARCC report highlighted some of the biggest scammers.
So, let's have a look at what these people were training young people to do with our dough.
Here's Campaign Lie. (Scroll down to "Summer Student Internship.")
The summer internship program run by Campaign Life Coalition and The Interim Newspaper [Catholic rag] is designed to challenge and reward a select number of students with a unique opportunity to work full-time in the pro-life movement. This internship is designed to shape and form future leaders by providing them with an in-depth opportunity to become active in the largest and oldest pro-life organization in Canada.
Oh great. Canada, a feminist and pro-choice country, pays to have "future leaders" undermine the human rights of half its population.
Now the Fetal Gore Gang, aka Canadian Centre for Bioethical [ptui] Reform. For the click-averse, here is big chunk of its pitch in all it giddiness over shoving gory signs in peoples' faces.
Are you passionate for pre-born babies and want to spare them death from abortion? Do you want to do something to achieve that? Are you considering pro-life work as a career and need a discernment opportunity? If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions, you should consider CCBR's Summer Internship program—a life-saving and life-changing experience for you and those you impact!More leaders for a rights-denying movement.
CCBR's Summer Internship is an incredible opportunity to improve your personal conversation skills and help you grow as a leader in the rapidly expanding pro-life movement. By the end of the summer, you will be among the most well-trained and effective pro-life activists in the country.
There are two main areas of focus during the internship, namely training and activism. Training is provided by our team of cutting edge speakers, and will involve not only pro-life apologetics, but also pro-life strategy, leadership, fundraising, public speaking, conflict resolution, and team building. To supplement the presentations, we will also study various books and documentaries that will develop a holistic understanding of our culture and how we can end the killing of pre-born children.
The second area of focus—activism—will give you an opportunity to develop conversation and engagement skills while having a profound impact on the conscience of our nation. You will work on the front lines in projects such as the postcarding project, the banner project, “Choice” Chain, and more. Our public outreach has already impacted the lives of millions of Canadians, saving many lives and changing countless minds on the issue of abortion.
I found this bit amusing. "Salary: Your total salary for the summer will be $7,000 with payment received on a bi-weekly basis. You are responsible to fundraise $3,000 of that amount before the internship begins."
Translation: "We can scam the government for only so much. You'll have to pony up the rest."
So, we had been wondering what the fetus freaks were doing with our money. As we can see, they're making a mockery of a well-intentioned program for youth, cynically milking it to undermine Canadian Values (of the right kind, not the Kellie Leitch perversions.)
We must keep the pressure on Minister of Employment, Patty Hadju, and Minister for Youth, Feminist™ Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, to ensure these groups and none espousing similar ends EVER get another red cent of taxpayers' money. And also to audit the groups identified by ARCC to see what they actually did with the dough.

UPDATE: Fetus freaks finally react to yanking of federal funds to anti-choice scammers. Personalize it to Trudeau's action. Deny ARCC's critical work. Call it "politicizing a simple jobs program." Hahahahaha. Who did that now?
