I am slack jawed at Stephen Harper’s latest statement. According to the Globe and Mail, he will re-open the Same Sex Marriage debate, if elected. The Globe writes:
Mr. Harper said he was determined to bring the legislation before a free vote in the House. He told reporters Tuesday he would not rein in cabinet ministers as Prime Minister Paul Martin did last summer when Parliament legalized same-sex weddings.
The Tories would restore the traditional definition of marriage — between one man and one woman — if that’s what MPs decide, Mr. Harper said. But, if MPs voted it down, as they did in June with a clear majority, he said he would consider the matter closed.
There goes Ontario. Not bad, just one day into the Campaign Stephen.
