Madam Speaker, the hon. member made reference to debate that occurred in the House on Bill C-33. I would like to quote one of his members in terms of what he said during a debate we had which was to expand human rights protection to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
The member for Yorkton—Melville said:
I believe this legislation will lead to redefinition of the family, marriage and spouse in Canadian law which in turn will permit gay marriages, spousal benefits to gay couples, gay adoption, restriction of religious freedom and expression, and open the door for sex perverts and pedophiles to seek Charter protection by claiming that their criminal sexual preferences are just another sexual orientation.
That was said on May 2, 1996. Despite the member's gloom and doom scenario, no Liberal policy has left the door wide open for “sex perverts and pedophiles” as the hon. member predicted in his fearmongering.
Since the hon. member made reference to Bill C-33, does he agree with the comments made by the other member of his party?
