Conservative MP Marilyn Gladu introduced Bill C-369 in the House of Commons on Tuesday, a bill that if passed, would have December recognized as “Christian Heritage Month.”

Gladu has been the Conservative Member of Parliament for Sarnia—Lambton since 2015.

The bill states that “the month of December marks significant events and celebrations in the Christian calendar, from the beginning of Advent to the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.”

In addition, the preamble of the bill points out, “according to Statistics Canada’s 2021 Census of Population, Christianity is the largest religion in Canada, with over half of Canadians identifying as Christian.”

Gladu’s motion comes just weeks after the Conservatives proposed a motion calling for all political parties to condemn the nationwide attack on churches in Canada since 2021. 

That motion was denied by NDP and Liberal MPs, with one saying doing so might “trigger” Indigenous Canadians. 

Liberal-NDP refuse to condemn church burnings

At least 83 churches have been burned to the ground or vandalized in Canada since the Tk’emlups Nation in Kamloops, BC made misleading claims about finding 215 unmarked graves in May 2021. 

To date, no bodies have been found in unmarked graves on the grounds of former residential schools in Canada.

During an Indigenous and Northern Affairs Committee meeting in October, Conservative MP Arnold Viersen proposed that all politicians “condemn the arson attacks of over 80 churches across Canada.” 

Viersen further called for the committee to “reaffirm freedom of religion and assembly and call on those responsible for these attacks to be brought to justice,” as reported by True North.

But the request was too controversial for Liberal and NDP MPs at the committee, who voted to shut down the motion rather than proceed with it.
