Conservative Leadership Candidate Brad Trost draws criticism for Same-Sex Marriage Ad #CPC #cdnpoli

Saskatoon MP Brad Trost has attracted criticism after a Facebook ad defined marriage as “the union of one man one woman.”

Trost is running for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. His campaign started running ads with a picture of two fingers side by side, with the message “Marriage is the union of one man, one woman.”

First elected in 2004, Trost has been vocal on many social conservative issues, including same-sex marriage.

“I think that what he’s made very clear is his personal views,” said campaign spokesperson Mike Patton. “We can only benefit from having discussions about same-sex marriage and abortion.”

Patton said Trost doesn’t agree with the way parliament voted on same-sex marriage, but because a majority of MPs voted in favour of the change, he wouldn’t take steps to reverse it.
