2016 was a milestone year for our Heritage Group Award Fund when it topped $100,000. Now, as of April 2018, we are at $114,908.

Have you read about the latest Justin Trudeau PR fiasco? When a young woman commented during a town hall meeting, “Maternal love is the love that’s going to change the future of mankind”, Trudeau promptly interjected, “We like to say ‘peoplekind’, not necessarily ‘mankind’. It’s more inclusive.”
Fox and Friends, one of President Trump’s favourite TV shows, was only one of many to pounce on our PM. British journalist Piers Morgan crowned Trudeau the “Chief PC Plonker” (PC for Politically Correct), and “a spineless virtue-signalling excuse for a feminist”. Australian columnist Rita Panahi called him the “Kim Kardashian of political leaders; an all-style, no-substance himbo with all the depth of a puddle.” Ouch…
