OTTAWA, July 24 ( – Homosexual activists are gearing up to fight the Canadian Alliance and specifically leader Stockwell Day. The activists have sensed that the looming possibility of an Alliance government threatens the steam rolling race toward homosexual marriage and legislative silencing of all opposition which flourished under the ruling Liberals. Gay activists were generally frustrated in their attempts to infiltrate the Canadian Alliance and weaken its strong family values from within, hence the attack strategy. Given the fact that the NDP and Tories are not likely to wield much political influence, the Liberal Party, which has pandered to the activist community, is becoming the home of the gay-marriage crowd.

The first campaign underway in the new strategy is to attempt to force the gay agenda to the top of the political agenda. According to the Canadian Press “they plan to mount an aggressive strategy of letter-writing, media awareness, pointed questions at public forums and possibly protests to force Day to reveal his thoughts on the issue.” Laurie Arron, vice-president of Equality for Gays and Lesbians Everywhere, told CP that “It clearly will be a mobilizing factor, and we certainly intend to do our best to make Canadians aware of his anti-gay prejudice.”

The fear within the activist community stems, not from Day himself but, from the fact that he would allow the public to decide such issues. Whereas the Liberal Party has not permitted free conscience votes to get in the way of its pro-gay agenda, the Alliance promises to allow free votes and open discussion. Most worrisome for the homosexual activist community is that judicial activism, which has been the method of choice to enact pro-gay laws by circumventing democratic institutions, will be curbed by an Alliance government.
