Tricia O’Connor is running for the Christian Heritage Party, which she has chosen in part because “I live by my Christian ideals, but also because I agree with their policies more than anything,” she says.
She has served her community as a board member for the Welland Multicultural and Heritage Museum to learn from the past, but her main concern is for “the upcoming generations in a globalist environment.”
One of her issues, she says, is other political parties coming down hard on criminals, but supporting abortion.
She says the country is “importing people to fund the pension plan” because there is a “missing generation of people” in the workforce. Protecting life, to her, is fundamental.
“Like all members of the CHP, I am unashamed of our Christian Heritage. In fact, I am reminded of why we have free health care in this country: a Baptist minister, Tommy Douglas, was elected to the House of Commons in 1935. It was his vision to see universal health care for every Canadian,” says O’Connor.
“Our country was founded upon the Judeo-Christian teachings of the Bible, and it is actually within our Charter of Rights in the preamble, that Canada is a nation under the Supremacy of God.”
CHP policies are based on those principles, she says. “This is what we want to see for all of Canada.”
Under Trudeau and prospectively under Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, she says, “Canadians will continue to export our dollars overseas to fund abortions in other countries as well. This is an outrage especially in light of what Mr. Trudeau had to say to our wounded veterans with regards to pensions: ‘We just don’t have the money.’”
The Christian Heritage Party was founded 30 years ago, and in this election has five candidates running in the Niagara Region, says O’Connor, calling it Canada’s only pro-life federal party.
O’Connor is an educator with a specialty in English as a second language, autism and behavioural psychology. She is a widow who raised her children alone, putting herself through university, earning two degrees. She has taught more than 4,000 students ranging from pre-kindergarten to adults.
Her priorities are:
• Life, from conception to natural death; and more protection of the environment, especially our forests, lakes and streams,
• Family: offering housing stability by building more housing units on a continual basis, making it easier for families to purchase homes with incentives for builders to offer sales to families and especially single-parent families.
• Freedom: with stricter law enforcement upon anyone who would attempt to intimidate or harm seniors as our populations ages.
