The anti-progressive Liberals

When progressive is regressive...

The following is a list of anti-choice and or anti-gay marriage Liberals in this campaign. The list is compiled from the Campaign Life Coalition voters guide. The incumbent Liberals are in red...

There are several other Liberal candidates that I suspect are anti-choice and or anti-gay marriage, however I have not found enough to list them here. Here is the official vote on Bill 38, third reading, Civil Marriage Act

Isn't this the same dude that eMay endorsed, and that Cherniak works for?

Cherniak does in fact work for Wilfert as Riding president Wilfert voted against gay marriage.

Thats the best about being a liberal. You can have any position you want on Human Rights.

I posted earlier today about a Liberal candidate in Vancouver Kingsway that says its none of our business if the Chinese kill Falun Gong members or throw them in jail.

Holy crap. I had no idea it was so many. Especially the "in any case except for life of the mother."
