Ted Colleton 2016-2017 Scholarship to Write something REAL

Niagara Region Right to Life proudly sponsors this scholarship: Open to senior highschool students (grades 11 & 12). This scholarship involves writing an essay of 1500 words on the theme described below.

3 awards:  $1500 ... $800 ... $500

Essay Theme:  In 2017 Canada will celebrate the 150th Year of Confederation.   Since 1867 there has been great technological progress, accompanied by a steady expansion of freedom in certain areas of social and economic life. Consider the contrasting views of the respective Prime Ministers of the day, Sir John A. Macdonald and Justin Trudeau on the issue of abortion:  Sir John A. Macdonald said that abortion “saps the very life blood of the nation” while Justin Trudeau considers it an inviolable human right.  With the above preamble in mind, compare Canada’s social policies at the time of Confederation with those of contemporary Canada with specific reference to the issue of abortion. Explain the dramatic changes and offer your opinion as to whether these changes can be reversed, and if so, explain how.
