In a year end interview with Andrew Lawton on London’s AM 9-80, Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown was asked whether so-cons have a place in the party, and whether MPPs in his caucus would be allowed to vote freely on matters of conscience.
What he said might shock you — I'll play you the clip.
Speaking as one myself, so-cons in Ontario care about two major issues in this province, and it has nothing to do with same sex unions or religion.
What we care about is the government teaching values (as opposed to science and facts) in our classrooms; and funding abortion which, in this country, is legal during all nine months of pregnancy for any reason.
And, for the record, none of our arguments require a religious creed to be justified, let alone explained.
Look, I get it:
Patrick Brown doesn’t want the provincial election to centre on social issues. Frankly, I don’t either.
But here’s the thing: it’s because of him — his flip flops, and now his censorship of his own caucus — that the social issues continue to get play in the media.
If he wants to appear neutral, I’ve got some advice on how he can do that...
