Canada’s Bishops Remind Voters of Principles

Offer 5 Points From Catholic Moral, Social Teaching

With the federal election campaign underway in Canada, the Commission for Justice and Peace of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has issued a guide inviting Catholics to vote with discernment.

The “2015 Federal Election Guide” offers some basic principles drawn from Catholic moral and social teaching to help voters analyze and evaluate public policies and programs.

The election will be held Oct. 19, to elect members to the House of Commons of the 42nd Parliament.

The guide includes five principles, with points to better understand the application of each one.

The principles include respect for human life, building a just society, the person and the family, Canada in the world, and a healthy society in a healthy environment.
