OTTAWA — A social policy showdown could be in the works for next month’s Conservative party policy convention.
On one side: a bid to further entrench the party’s stand against same sex marriage with a resolution to protect “the rights of Canadian workers who believe in the traditional definition of marriage from employment discrimination on the basis of their deeply held religious beliefs.”
On the other: efforts to get the existing policy banning same sex marriage dropped altogether.
