Big Brother is watching, but Big Brother doesn’t want you to know what he sees, or at least not in Ontario.
The provincial government has refused to release statistical information on publicly funded abortions in the province. Politicians who trumpet the mantra that abortion should be safe, legal and rare don’t want to be transparent about just how often the procedure takes place and how rare it is.
This position is being challenged in court, and surprisingly to me the case against the province is being supported by the Ontario Civil Liberties Association, an organization I usually think of as synonymous with attacks on traditions, not supporting them. I guess this case is obvious, even to them.
I wonder what it is the province wants to hide?
