Conservatives fund gay pride

Apparently some federal tourism money – $400,00 of it – went to the recent Toronto Gay Pride parade. Most of the Conservative caucus had no idea and were not too impressed. Here’s part of the story from

The revelation of $400,000 in funding from the federal Conservatives for the recent Toronto Gay Pride parade, which is notorious for its inclusion of full frontal nudity and public sex acts by homosexuals, came as a shock to most social conservatives in the nation. According to Conservative MP Brad Trost, however, the decision to fund the event also came a shock to most of the Conservative caucus, even those inside the Prime Minister’s office.

Trost claimed that “almost the entire Conservative caucus” including “most of the Prime Minister’s Office were taken by surprise at this announcement.”

“It shouldn’t be deemed to have been a change in Party policy,” he said, adding, “Most of the caucus is still strongly pro-traditional marriage.”

The MP attributed the move to “sloppiness.”

The minister in charge of the tourism file has apparently lost it, with good reason … and a review of how dollars are spent in that department is ongoing. How embarrasing for the party and sickening for most “pro-traditional marriage” people out there – me included.
