Traditional marriage lobby heats up on Parliament Hill

The Hill Times reports that anti gay marriage lobby and basically strong Conservative supporters are calling in their chips! The Conservatives' 2006 election platform, under a section called "Stand up for Families," promised to "hold a truly free vote" on the definition of marriage in a House motion. If the motion passes, the platform said, the government would introduce legislation to "restore the traditional definition of marriage while respecting existing same-sex marriages." In April, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he would deal with the issue of same-sex marriage "sooner rather than later," leaving lobby groups to expect a vote on the issue in the fall session. Here we go again!
