TORONTO, July 3, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Liberal leader who shocked Canadians last year by declaring he would break up the country to keep same-sex “marriage” in Quebec made good on his commitment to homosexual activism over the weekend as he pulled out all the stops for Toronto’s annual Gay Pride parade.
“The Liberal Party believes that the advancement of LGBTTQ rights is a priority and we hope you will join us in continuing this vital work,” declared Justin Trudeau in a video marking Sunday’s parade.
A regular at Montreal’s Pride event, Justin Trudeau attended Toronto’s parade for the first time this year after taking the helm of the federal Liberal Party in April.
Last year Trudeau demonstrated that he was not content with merely promoting homosexual rights but was intolerant of dissenting opinon. Speaking at a high school he said it was “repulsive” that Catholics were opposing the imposition of gay-straight alliance clubs in Catholic schools.
He made a splash in the media by attending Pride’s opening church service on Church St., and greeting revelers as he walked the parade route with Kathleen Wynne, Ontario’s first homosexual premier.
He also filled his Twitter feed with photos and commentary on the event, as well as a tweet on June 26th in support of the U.S. homosexual “rights” movement on the occasion of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act.
“With today’s victory in the march towards equality for our American neighbours, we’re one step closer to a more just world,” he wrote.
In his video, Trudeau highlights the Liberal Party's role in promoting the normalization of homosexuality, beginning with his father, Pierre Trudeau, in the 1960s.
He begins by noting that Canada marks an “historic milestone in the fight for equality rights” in 2013 with the tenth anniversary of the first same-sex “marriages.”
“Here in Canada, our record as a leader in LGBTTQ rights is recognized globally and Liberals are proud of our contributions,” he says. “From the declaration that the state has no place in the bedrooms of the nation to the decriminalization of homosexuality to the legalization of same-sex ‘marriage’, it has been Liberal governments that have successfully fought since 1967 to enshrine the rights of the LGBTTQ community.”
“This summer, Liberals will be joining in Pride celebrations across the country and we look forward to seeing you there,” he adds. “The Liberal Party believes that the advancement of LGBTTQ rights is a priority and we hope you will join us in continuing this vital work.”
New Democrat leader Thomas Mulcair, who heads Canada’s Official Opposition, also attended the church service and parade.
