Canadian Conservatives sell out marriage

By a decisive margin, the  convention Canadian Conservative party- recently sent into opposition after nine years in power- voted to drop the position that marriage was in its essence the union of one man and one woman.

Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper had effectively squelched opposition to abortion among Canadian Conservatives. Now, the Conservative party that could not stand up for life also has chosen to abandon society's most basic institution, accepting the extension of marriage to a population among whom monogamy is not an expectation even in "committed" relationships.

The party also wants to legalize marijuana.

As bad as Justin Trudeau is, it seems reasonable at this stage to ask whether the Conservatives are any better.
