Conservative Front-Runner Pierre Poilievre Expresses Support For Gay Marriage

Poilievre also says neither government bills nor private members bills on abortion would be passed under a Conservative government led by him.

With the largest leadership race poll in the country showing him a clear front-runner, and with much of the Conservative base already expressing support for him, Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre is sharing his views on the social issues that Andrew Scheer struggled to articulate in the last campaign.

NCC Conservative Leadership Race Poll

In an interview with La Presse, Poilievre said he supports gay marriage, and said that a Conservative government led by him would not introduce a bill on abortion. Additionally, he says a private members bill on abortion would not be allowed to be passed.

Notably, Poilievre’s position on abortion appears to track closely with how Stephen Harper governed, repeatedly saying the abortion debate would not be re-opened and ensuring that no private members bills on abortion were passed in the House of Commons.

And when it comes to gay marriage, the Conservative Party membership voted at a recent convention to remove the party’s past opposition to gay marriage from their official policy statement, meaning Poilievre is onside with many Conservative Party members, and the Canadian People on that issue.

Here’s a translation from French of part of the La Presse interview:

‘“I support gay marriages. Period. I voted against 15 years ago. But I learned a lot, like millions and millions of people across Canada and around the world. I find that the gay marriage is a success. The institution of marriage must be open to all citizens, regardless of their sexual orientation, “said the voluble member from the outset in an interview with La Presse .

And on abortion, he said that a possible Conservative government he would lead would never introduce a bill on this issue. But he would go further by ensuring that no project from me, even a private one, was adopted either.

“This is my position,” he said.”

Poilievre also said a decision on a leadership run is “imminent.”

This interview demonstrates one of Poilievre’s strengths so far. With his effective communication, strong use of social media, and toughness against the biased establishment media and Trudeau government, Poilievre has demonstrated the fighting attitude most Conservatives are looking for. At the same time, he’s making sure that he remains someone who is electable among a wide swath of Canadians. That’s a tough move to pull off, and Poilievre’s success bodes well for both his leadership race chances and his chance to defeat the Trudeau Liberals and become Prime Minister.

It will be almost 4 more years before he can become PM so in that time the MSM here in Canada, lead by the CBC and The Toronto Star (if it survives), will be trying to pick him apart but with these announcements to what is position is on social issues is taking the wind out of their sails. Smart move Pierre!

Bingo!! Same old Globalist UN Agenda! Same Old Anti-God, Anti-Family Garbage!

I’m voting for Pierre and hoping Pierre will push the Conservative Elete and Scheer to release the report on why we lost in 2019 The membership deserves to see this before the leadership race

Yvee

He has my vote.

What are Trudeau’s stands on abortion and gay marriage? What is his stand on the superiority of sharia law over the laws of Canada? What is his stand on full and partial nudity during Pride parades? What is his stand on the RCMP failing to stop illegals from crossing the Canadian border? What is his stand on birther houses in BC? What is his stand on the failure of the Horgan Carbon Tax in BC? What is his stand on Quebec using transfer “equalization” money to buy blood and beheading oil? And on and on and on, ad nauseum. There… Read more »

Go Pierre go!! Right to the PM position!!

Although these things are important to a small portion of Canadian society, and are already in place years ago, great for them, we all have the freedom of using them if needed or not if against them, but this is still being used as a distraction, a dog and pony show of old stuff, if you will, by the left/right radicals against the Centrist Conservatives to try to keep the support for the supposed “modern’ left/right UN programmed lieberals +, just like the fake environment taxes doing nothing for a cleaner Canada as we know. etc. a distraction from really… Read more »

This is why the CPC lost so man votes – they don’t have the guts to stand up for what most Canadians value.

I love this guy, and I hope he does well. however, the communist Trudeau has his electoral map right where it needs to be, however, next election, they cannot send out over 200,000 names of the deceased. bad, so bad on Trudeaus part. with pierre, he will not back down from Trudeau.

Joanne

So we have a likely future “conservative” leader whose social views are in lock step with the leftist parties. His fiscal policies probably wont be very “conservative” either.

Im done with all the parties now.

Gerri Page

We need to know more about his plans because he might have some hidden agendas tucked away that we might oppose.

George

His comments reveal his true beliefs but he is not in step with a wide swath of Canadians on abortion or same-sex marriage. If he were the leader of the CPC he would lose the next election because the true blue conservatives would noot support him. For the CPC to move in the left wing intolerant direction is to guarantee a Liberal Party win. This ensures that the CPC is simply the Liberal Party (wolves) in sheeps clothing.

Cat

Who cares!!!!!!! What is his strategy to create prosperity in Canada/??? I’d like policy statements about the economy.
