About CHP Canada Who are the people of the CHP? We’re your neighbours, and we want the same things you want: safe communities, a strong economy, and a good future for our children and grandchildren. We come from all parts of the nation, and from all walks of life. Why a specifically Christian political party? The CHP was not started because there were no Christians in the other parties — there are. However, party discipline in Ottawa is so restrictive that Christian members of Parliament in the major parties are not permitted to bring their deepest convictions into parliamentary...

Trump chips away at liberal U.S. appeals court majorities Aided by fellow Republicans in the Senate, President Donald Trump is rapidly filling vacancies on U.S. appeals courts, moving some that had liberal majorities closer to conservative control in an ideological shift that could benefit his administration. These 13 courts wield considerable power, usually providing the last word on rulings appealed from lower courts on disputes involving federal law. Their rulings can be challenged before the U.S. Supreme Court, but most such appeals are turned away because the top court typically hears fewer than 100 cases annually. Eleven of the...

Can Andrew Scheer lead conservatives to success? Maxime Bernier was cruising to victory in the 2017 Tory leadership contest. Then Andrew Scheer aligned with dairy and poultry farmers, which – along with a quiet nod to social conservatives – created a narrow path to victory. Mr. Bernier, who had called for an end to agricultural cartels while advocating for enhanced personal responsibility and greater freedoms, led on the first 12 of 13 ballots. Mr. Scheer shrewdly cozied up with the agricultural lobby to win. But in the aftermath, he needed to find some common ground with Mr. Bernier, who...

California becomes first state to require women to be on corporate board The measure requires at least one female director on each board of California-based corporations by the end of next year. Companies would need up to three female directors by the end of 2021, depending on the number of board seats. The Democratic governor referenced the objections and legal concerns that the law has raised. “I don’t minimize the potential flaws that indeed may prove fatal to its ultimate implementation,” Brown wrote in a signing statement. “Nevertheless, recent events in Washington, D.C. – and beyond – make it...

Shut Up and Sing: Celebrity and Politics Don’t Mix The last couple of weeks our friends over at the Drudge Report have highlighted stories on musicians taking on the Bush Administration over the war in Iraq.

Evansville Trump rally got Ford Center’s largest-ever crowd Thursday night’s Trump rally drew the Ford Center’s largest crowd ever, according to manager VenuWorks. The turnout: 11,500 people, with another 2,000 unable to get in. Meanwhile, the Evansville Police Department issued its official estimate of the crowd protesting President Trump outside the arena – 500 to 600 people at its peak. Scott Schoenike, executive director of Ford Center manager VenuWorks, said the absence of chairs and the use of a relatively small stage were the keys to squeezing in 11,500 people. The $120 million, 290,000-square foot facility has 9,200 fixed...
