When you vote today for your Liberal candidate, please consider this:
While others, including people I respect deeply, have attacked Trifon Haitas for his anti-choice (or pro-life, whatever you'd like to call it), I ask that you consider the wider fact that he does not appear to be a single issue candidate, nor does he seem to be part of a concerted effort to get an anti-choice Liberal candidate elected, as what happened during the 1990's with several MPs, a couple who are still sitting.
Mr. Haitas is asking for the Liberal nomination on the grounds of his ideas and what he feels he can bring to the Liberal cause. If abortion is truly the issue you want to vote on, then by all means vote against (or for) him. That's your right.
But let's remember that we are an open and inclusive party, even of people with views such as Mr. Haitas'. If we start attacking any and every candidate with an anti-choice view then guess what: we're worse than the Conservatives, who have no such policy in place (in the reverse, of course).
Think about that. If you're turned off of Mr. Haitas solely because of his anti-choice views, we're going to be less inclusive than the Conservative Party of Canada!
As I said, it's your vote, but just consider everything he has to say, rather than just nitpicking on what is a small issue. Democracy within the Liberal Party will be better served if you do.
