LGBTory Canada is pleased to announce our endorsement of Devin Scully, who is running for the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario candidate nomination in the riding of Barrie-Innisfil. Mr. Scully shares our goals of ensuring that members of Canada’s LGBT community have equal rights, including the right to civil marriage for same-sex couples and equal protection under the Criminal Code and the Human Rights Codes of Canada and Ontario. He supports inclusion of LGBT information and issues in the Ontario school curriculum. He believes that the governments of Canada and Ontario have an obligation to speak out for, and protect, vulnerable LGBT populations at home and abroad. He has demonstrated his commitment to LGBT equality from an early age – he founded the Gay Straight Alliance at his high school, despite opposition from some fellow students and staff members.
We believe that Mr. Scully will represent the interests of all his constituents, including those in the LGBT community, and will be a voice for tolerance and diversity both in Barrie-Innisfil and in the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario. We are glad to support his candidacy.
