Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose says she backs a call for removal of the long-standing same-sex marriage ban from official Tory policy, her latest move to reshape the party in the post-Stephen Harper era.

"I've been clear for a long time that the Conservative Party welcomes all conservatives, regardless of sexual orientation. If you believe in smaller government, lower taxes, balanced budgets and individual freedom, we want you in our party," Ambrose said in a statement to CBC News.

A group of Alberta Tories adopted a resolution over the weekend calling for the two lines that deal with same-sex marriage to be deleted from the Conservative Party's social policy at its upcoming national convention in Vancouver.
