Who Finances The Pro-Life Movement In Canada?

Here's a study out of the US that raises my question:

A public policy expert and regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal says the stereotype that liberals are more compassionate than conservatives is false.

...his findings show that conservatives are more generous in every way -- from volunteering, to donating blood, to giving money.

...according to his research, a household headed by a conservative, on average, gives 30 percent more dollars to charity than does one headed by a liberal -- despite earning six percent less income.

Another observation from Brooks' findings: liberals typically want everyone's tax dollars to support government entitlement programs -- but are hesitant to give their own money to those same programs, even when the government subsidies are inadequate.

So I'm thinking, does this apply to Canada?

Just wondering...

I don't know, but I do know that good percentage of the money comes from "average" people.

Granted, but do you think that conservatives and liberals in Canada fit the same general pattern as those in this US study?
My guess is yes.
