As a Tory I believe in equality under the law: Lisa MacLeod MPP

Lisa Macleod, Ottawa Sun, August 22, 2015

“I’m an old school, small government, keep your nose outta my life and hands outta my pocket conservative” read the post on social media this week.

It sounded like my type of Tory.

As a Progressive Conservative I was brought up to believe that government needs to live within its means, you help those who cannot help themselves, government cannot and should not be all things to all people, private property should be respected and in society the rule of law should prevail.

It should come as no surprise that any conservative prepared to stand up for the rule of law should also support the equality of all under it.
