Pro-life Catholic elected speaker of Canada’s Parliament
June 08, 2011
Andrew Scheer, a 32-year-old Catholic and father of four from Saskatchewan, has been elected the youngest speaker in the history of Canada’s Parliament.
Described by a Canadian pro-life newspaper as a “passionate social conservative” who is “unabashedly pro-life,” Scheer has spoken out against same-sex marriage. Scheer faced criticism from some of his colleagues in 2010 when he invited Opus Dei’s vicar for Canada to the Parliament’s restaurant.
