Last summer, Justin Trudeau became the first sitting Prime Minister to march in a Pride Parade, sending a powerful message that Canada stands with our LGBTQ2 community.
But Conservative MP Brad Trost says he’ll turn back the clock on equal marriage and will never march in Pride Parades (he says he’s uncomfortable with ‘the whole gay thing’) – and he’s running to lead the Conservative Party.
It’s another example of how out of touch the Conservative Party and its leadership candidates are with Canadians. They are still stuck talking about the same divisive, negative politics that Canadians rejected in 2015.
The Liberal Party will always stand with the LGBTQ2 community, because love is love – no matter who you are. But, we need your help to stop Conservatives like Brad Trost from rolling back our progress.
