Regina, SK, January 11, 2006 ( – Former Liberal and outgoing Independent Member of Parliament Pat O’Brien, announced, yesterday, that Vote Marriage Canada endorses four Regina and district pro-marriage candidates in the federal election.

Said Pat O’Brien, “On behalf of Vote Marriage Canada, I am announcing our endorsement of Regina-Lumsden-Lake Centre candidate Tom Lukiwski, M.P.;ÂÂ Regina-Qu’Appelle candidate Andrew Scheer, M.P.; Palliser candidate Dave Batters, M.P.; and Wascana candidate Brad Farquhar. All three Members of Parliament voted against Bill C-38 and opposed the change in the legal definition of marriage. Each of the four candidates has taken a stand and given clear indication of supporting marriage as the legal union of one man and one woman in the next Parliament.”

Vote Marriage Canada is carrying on a non-partisan, national campaign calling on the next Parliament to restore and to promote marriage as the legal union of one man and one woman.

With B.C. Co-Chair Reed Elley, Atlantic Co-Chair Elsie Wayne, and Quebec Co-Chair Louis DeSerres, National Co-Chairs the Hon. Grant Hill, P.C., and Pat O’Brien, M.P., are calling on Parliament to recognize that marriage as the union of one man and one woman is the foundation of families and Canadian society.

  The National pro-life organization, Campaign Life Coalition, encourages Canadians to also go to its Election 2006 web page to review these candidates’ positionsÂon the life issues.
