Baird - queer as a three dollar bill?

OH no

Tell me its not so...

John Baird, the Stephen Harper Minister is gay... (tongue firmly placed in right cheek).

Toronto Centre Conservative candidate, Pamela Taylor lets it slip on CBC Radio's Toronto Morning show today.

Ms Taylor has officially outed one of her own. Bet she has fun putting that one back in the box.
It is common knowledge in the gay community but not that commonly known in the wider world.

Worst kept secret, ever.

True, but not reported until now. I almost did tell the world when Baird and his government sat on an HIV/AIDS prevention campaign for gay men for two years and then again when they refused funding for Montreal pride events.

I think it was reported in NOW magazine online and then pulled. And it occasionally appears in his wiki article, only to be removed a few hours later.

Theres actually a few far more interesting top ranking Conservative members who are still deeply in the closet. I hope this encourages some of them to come out on their own.

I know of a few but won't out unless they do something that "hurts" gays...
