We are dedicated to making an ABORTION FREE GENERATION!

Ruth Shaw

Leading NCLN is a passion close to Ruth's heart.

Florence Lavergne

Ontario Provincial Coordinator

Florence was born and raised in Ottawa, ON.

She graduated with an Honours Bachelor in Nutrition Sciences at the University of Ottawa and is currently finishing her Master's in Interdisciplinary Health Sciences.

Helping pro-life students across Canada comes from a deep conviction, "Abortion is promoted and encouraged in our culture. I can't turn a blind eye and carry on with my life as though it is not happening."

Ben Matychuk

Alberta Regional Coordinator

Ben grew up in Edmonton, AB but now lives in Lethbridge AB.

Prior to joining NCLN, he worked in retail customer service, sold paint jobs, and campaigned for Lethbridge-East MLA Nathan Neudorf. He has also been a longtime coach of bible quizzing at the district, Great West, and international level.

Ben is excited to be working for NCLN and creating an abortion free generation, "If we play a role in raising up a pro-life generation and no longer being the only democracy without an abortion law, I want to be part of that.”

Philip Ottenbreit

Saskatchewan Provincial Coordinator

Philip lives in Regina, SK. He was born in Humboldt, SK and raised in Calgary, AB.

Since finding the pro-life club on campus, Philip has been very active and helped the University of Regina club grow from 2 members to 8 in the fall semester of 2018.

"NCLN taught me how to express myself on campus and to be confident in what I was doing. NCLN won my heart when they showed me that they had the vision and leadership needed to form and mobilize dozens of ambassadors on campuses across the entire country.

"Now is the time to win this country back and send a message to the world that we CAN choose to support the woman AND her daughter or son, together."

Red Lasiste

British Columbia Provincial Coordinator

Red grew up in Manila, Philippines but now lives in Vancouver, BC.

In addition to joining NCLN, Red is a Financial Assurance Associate at an multinational accounting firm. He is also an entrepreneur, co-founding Likas Landscaping Inc while studying his Bachelors of Business Administration at Simon Fraser University. In his pastime, he enjoys photography, fitness, and travelling.

Red looks forward to being an active part of NCLN, pursuing  a society that preserves the life of the unborn. It is no lie that plenty have become more accustomed to desecrating this valuable life. The liberal culture has forced many people he personally knew to disregard their morality and buy into this dangerous sheep mentality. Through NCLN, he hopes that university students who are in similar dilemmas (being politically correct versus standing up for the life of the unborn) would be empowered to fight for what is morally right.
