Baby Daddy/Commandment-breaking Vic Toews is all about the miracle of life.
Conservative cabinet minister Vic Toews has been wrongly accused of disgraceful behaviourin referring to Louise Arbour’s performance as the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights as disgraceful.
And that is why Vic Toews was right to regard her conduct as disgraceful, even if he put it rudely.
It is no exaggeration to say that Toews had a difficult relationship with organized labour, a point which was repeatedly stressed in press reports from the period.
Toews was accused last week of tampering with a committee responsible for nominating candidates for judicial appointments.
Previously, Toews said some judges are out of touch with public concerns and he mused about an elected judiciary with term limits.
In a Free Press story Saturday about appointing three new judges, Toews said he went to the Treasury Board as soon as he received Chief Provincial Court Judge Judith Webster's request for three new judges.
Toews expressed serious concerns about the trial's outcome, and filed leave to appeal the case to the Supreme Court of Canada.
This particular case garnered a fair bit of media attention in Manitoba, and the criticism as regards funding is unquestionably relevant to the article -- at the same time, I didn't want to present the information in a sensational manner, or suggest that Toews was tied directly to the specifics of this particular case.
Some criticized the move but Toews denied wrongdoing.
My first sentence is not hyperbole or exaggeration: Toews was accused of misusing the powers of his office both times.
Some charged Toews had tainted the process.
Provencher MP Vic Toews said religious groups should not be singled out because of their moral position on homosexuality.
Toews said Manitoba's human rights law, which protects individuals from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, is a threat to Canadians' freedom of religion.
Toews had a difficult relationship with organized labour, and was sometimes accused of promoting anti-labour policies.
Toews denied that his bill was anti-labour, and argued that it provided greater autonomy to individual workers.
Fortunately, you retrieved what he initially had to say which led to the judge's comments: Toews said some judges are out of touch with public concerns and he mused about an elected judiciary with term limits.
Toews was accused of misusing the powers of his office on at least two occasions.
This announcement was not particularly noteworthy in and of itself, but questions soon arose as to how Toews had obtained the information as calls to the hotline were meant to be confidential and anonymous.
Toews was also forced to admit that the hotline itself had gone unanswered for several months.
A previous editor stated that the religion of Vic Toews was “Mennonite.
Therefore a more reliable citation is needed.
We have a quote from a reliable source saying "Toews is himself a Mennonite", a source where Toews is commenting in obvious discussion with the reporter.
If you don't think that's correct, produce a quote from a reliable, verifiable source that says "Toews is not a Mennonite.
Your incorrect quote is this: “Toews is himself a Mennonite.
I've also checked the list of Mennonites article and Toews is in the "connected to" section, so everything seems fine here now.
Toews is a member of the Conservative Party of Canada.
Toews was born to a Mennonite family in Filadelfia, Paraguay, and moved with his family to Manitoba in 1956.
Toews joined the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba in 1989, and ran for the party in the northeast Winnipeg division of Elmwood in the 1990 provincial election.
Toews was appointed to the cabinet of Premier Gary Filmon after the election, becoming Minister of Labour on May 9, 1995.
On January 6, 1997, Toews was promoted to Minister of Justice, Attorney General and Keeper of the Great Seal, with further responsibility for Constitutional Affairs.
Toews said that the proposal was "sensitive to the needs of the aboriginal community", and that it would reduce the number of repeat offenders.
During the fallout from this controversy, Toews was forced to admit that the hotline had gone unanswered for several months.
The Progressive Conservatives were defeated in the 1999 provincial election and Toews was personally defeated in Rossmere, losing to Harry Schellenberg by 294 votes.
After leaving provincial politics, Toews turned his attention to the federal scene and Canada's "unite-the-right" movement.
The Liberals won a national majority government, and Toews was appointed as Justice Critic in the opposition shadow cabinet.
Toews joined the new party, and was a Manitoba organizer in Stephen Harper's successful bid to become its first elected leader.
Toews received a $500 fine, and the charge remained on his record.
While Toews remains personally opposed to same-sex marriage, he later indicated that the Harper government would not revisit the issue again.
As Treasury Board President, Toews is responsible for overseeing the Federal Accountability Act, which was passed into law in 2006.
During a June 2008 parliamentary debate, Toews described Canadian jurist Louise Arbour, the retiring United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, as a "disgrace.
Liberal MP Martha Hall Findlay responded that Toews had taken Arbour's remarks "completely out of context", and described his comments as an "appalling" personal attack.
Toews was invited to speak at an event marking the 25th anniversary of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, but declined.
The Canadian media subsequently reported that Justice officials had prepared a briefing note on Schreiber the previous year, while Toews was still minister.
And lets face it, Toews is saying all of this because Harper is afraid to, kind of like with Ambrose and Kyoto.
However, what Toews is suggesting is adding another member to the committee, rather than using one of the existing member-at-large spots.
If I recall correctly, Toews is only adding a police representative as 1 or 5 members on these advisory committees.
As Globe readers will know, this attack on Toews has nothing whatsoever to do with his committees or their composition.
Is this example one that suggests the Vic Toews is right? Are Mary Ebert's suspicions warranted? Well, it depends on whether you believe Bonnie Croll's appointment was because of skill and merit, or because of connections.
Look what Vic Toews has sent out to his constituents.
Global News is reporting tonight that Vic Toews has flip-flopped on the Asper Stadium proposal.
Toews was demoted to the Treasury Board and immediately cloaked by invisibility, stewing in question period silence while his junior parliamentary secretary juggles tough questions on election financing irregularities.
Provencher MP Vic Toews has pleaded guilty to charges of overspending during the 1999 provincial election.
Toews has now admitted to breaking the law in Manitoba, which I think would at least cause him to question whether he should remain as justice critic, so I'm actually calling on Mr.
Toews says his actions weren't intentional, and since the offence is regulatory, not criminal, he does not need to give up his position as justice critic.
Vic Toews is currently in line for a federal judgeship.
