Reviving the SSM debate

"Two former political opponents will work together to force the same-sex marriage issue onto the agenda during the coming election campaign.

Ontario MP Pat O'Brien - who resigned as a Liberal this year over the legalization of gay marriage - announced Tuesday that he has founded Defend Marriage Canada with a Conservative ally. He and ex-Tory MP Grant Hill say the group will raise money, publish letters, and lobby voters to elect candidates who oppose same-sex marriage."

The Conservative Party of Canada may well end up wishing that these guys would just fade away. The CPC wasn't about to make a campaign issue out of SSM, as to do so only plays into the Liberal's hands. The "Defend Marriage Canada" organization may not technically be affiliated with the CPC, but that distinction is likely to be lost on most voters.
