Julie Ali Personally I think this candidate like all the other federal Conservative candidates is very boring and won't be hired by the citizens. The Conservatives are not out of the dinosaur era. It's troubling but there you go.

Fedro Harahap I don't think being gay is a lifestyle, but I know for a fact that being an a**hole is a choice. Trost just proved my belief.

Ed Knelsen Fedro Harahan, he's not an a**hole, nor did he put anybody down for being gay. He just stated his beliefs which is not necessarily hate. Looks like you have "hate" issues though.

Ed Knelsen Exactly my point. You hate someone who has a different viewpoint. It doesn't mean he is a bigot. It seems you are a bigot as you have no tolerance for his opinion. 
Bigot def: a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.

Donna Sharpe Mr. McUskin, would/could you kindly define 'community standards' and while you are at would/could you please define 'Canadian values'? As 'Canadian values' seems to be a requirement of Ms. Leitch and her supporters. I am a 73 year old Canadian born woman and am unable to define either so I would appreciate your assistance. Thank you
