OTTAWA, December 10, 2002 ( – A self-admitted practicing homosexual MP has announced that he plans to run for the leadership of the federal Progressive Conservative Party.  Scott Brison, MP for Kings-Hants Nova Scotia, has voted in favour of homosexual marriage and also supported pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia measures.  Although he has been known as a homosexual activist MP for some years, a recent Globe and Mail interview which announced his bid for the leadership is being reported as his “coming out”.  Brison, a darling of current Tory leader Joe Clark is often referred to as Clark’s protégé.  Political commentators however doubt that the Party would go to the socially liberal extreme with Brison as leader since it would alienate social conservatives within the Party.  See Brison’s voting record from Campaign Life Coalition:   See the Globe and Mail interview with Brison:
