CPC MP Roxanne James RIPS UP LETTER Sent By Gay Constituent Of Scarborough Centre. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
On August 29th, Roxanne James posted news that if re-elected the Conservative party would make adoption more accessible by increasing the Adoption Expense Tax Credit to $20,000.
In a Facebook post (below), James says, “There is no higher calling than raising a child – and no greater reward. Every year, thousands of Canadian families are transformed as they bring adopted children into their hearts and lives.”
The announcement prompted Scarborough Centre resident Michel Foucault to ask James a candid question in the comment section of her post.
UPDATE Foucault not only did not get a response from Ms. James, but he also had his question deleted and, according to him, was banned from her Facebook page all together.
MP James seems to forget she works for SCARBOROUGH CENTRE. Her constituents ALL OF THEM. But just like the last four years, she has completely turned her back on the LGBT community in Scarbough Centre.
Which prompted the Green Party candidate for Scarborough Centre, Lindsay Thompson, to tweet her support for the LGBT community in Scarborough Centre.
Here for you in Scarborough Centre! is Roxanne James’ campaign slogan. As Michel Foucault’s experience has proved, that slogan might need some tweaking.

Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper promises tax relief 4 families who adopt. Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James supports that, but for straight couples only. She says gay people who adopt kids is “TROUBLING” & puts kids “AT RISK”

The decision of the Supreme Court in M v. H to redefine “spouse” causes me great concern. This will mean that 90 laws in Ontario and another 55 federally will have to be rewritten. It means that same-sex marriage will be a reality at City Hall, and most troubling of all, homosexuals will be able to adopt children. What kind of crazy society are we living in that would allow a few unelected judges to decide that it’s perfectly acceptable for children to grow up without a mother or a father? It is not acceptable to me to put children purposely at risk to satisfy the special interests of a tiny minority. Our members of Parliament must be counted onto stand up to the court. Marriage and family are critical institutions to our society and are worth defending. Our MPPs must use the notwithstanding clause and reject this court decision.
