The Canada Summer Jobs program is a grant program intended to support employers in hiring secondary and post-secondary students so they can gain valuable work experience. The Liberal government in Canada, though, has been getting lots of media attention after making it a requirement for applicants to sign off on the attestation stating both the job and the mandate of the applying organization must respect, among other things, reproductive rights (read rights to abortion). Many pro-life and church groups are calling this discriminatory as it forces them to violate their conscience, effectively barring them from the grant on the basis of their beliefs. Andy and Steve are back this week to share their thoughts on this controversy.
