Fantastic

The Toronto-Danforth Liberal nomination has become a battleground for the abortion culture wars.

Just when you think you're safe, it crawls its way back up to the forefront. Yay.

  1. What ever happened to a big tent. I assume Dan Mcteague is now unwelcome as well.

  2. Mhm, that's what I say. I don't agree with their position but ffs, if they have something to contribute and they're not single-issue, subversive a-holes, let them join.

    In other words, if they're Derek Lee, they're fine. If they're Tom Wappel, then we've got issues.

    Agreed.

    Overall, having a pro-life candidate run in a progressive riding like the Danforth (it's been held by the NDP for most of its history -- Bob Rae held it back when he was a federal NDP MP) makes as much sense as having an candidate who called Israel "a death trap" run in Thornhill.

    As for the Liberals for Life.... it'll be interesting to see if the Liberals for Life tries to revive and take over the party. The delegates back in January confirmed a reproductive health policy. There would probably be a bit of a push-back with current memebers.
