OTTAWA, TORONTO — A well-known evangelical crusader is claiming credit for the federal government's move to deny tax credits to TV and film productions that contain graphic sex and violence or other offensive content.

Charles McVety, president of the Canada Family Action Coalition, said his lobbying efforts included discussions with Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day and Justice Minister Rob Nicholson, and "numerous" meetings with officials in the Prime Minister's Office.

"We're thankful that someone's finally listening," he said yesterday. "It's fitting with conservative values, and I think that's why Canadians voted for a Conservative government."

Mr. McVety said films promoting homosexuality, graphic sex or violence should not receive tax dollars, and backbench Conservative MPs and cabinet ministers support his campaign.

McVety... Hmm... McVety.. where have I heard that name before?
Oh yes. That would be the president of the Canada Christian College. Home of the nation's most savvy cutting edge arts and cultural studies faculty... Suddenly I feel so comforted having these people guide my viewing choices. Yay Canada!

We did not vote for the Conservatives.

We voted against the Liberals.

Sheesh. Some people can't tell the difference.

And those pictures definitely show the problems that occur when cousins marry.
