Outside of watching the occasional hockey game or purchase of maple syrup, most Americans pay little attention to Canada.
We may know of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s colorful socks, but little of how unpopular he is among his constituency. We may discuss the single-payer health care system, but are unfamiliar with the government’s disrespect for religious liberty of our neighbors to the north.
Faithful patriots in this country who are concerned by the attacks on free exercise of religion in America should also be concerned by the similar attacks on liberty echoing within Canada, a country with strong protections for religious liberty in its Charter for Rights and Freedom.
In light of the immense trade between our two countries, we must determine if religious intolerance is an intangible export that has escaped our notice.
