The 'religious right' in Canada

The National Post continues its series on conservatism in Canada with an essay by Lorne Gunter on Fighting Canada's secularist tide. It seems Christians in Canada are 20 years behind their counterparts south of the border in trying to influence the political process. Might they have something to learn from their American brothers and sisters in the faith? Gunter thinks so. On the other hand, our Westminster parliamentary/cabinet system may not offer an hospitable institutional setting for such activities. Adopting PR might be a place to start in rectifying this. The Globe and Mail is already in favour, though, last I heard, the Post is not.
