Stephen Harper has re-confirmed my assertion why not to vote for the conservatives.
Answering a reporter’s question yesterday, Harper indicated a Tory government would reconsider legislation permitting same-sex marriage, and put the matter to a free vote.
Of course he gave no indication how he is going to reverse the court’s decision to do this and how to preserve existing gay marriages. Of course this is a political point that goes down very well with his core supporters. I think he himself knows that there is no turning the clock back. He is only trying to score points at this stage.
