The epidemic—potentially lethal, in a single generation, to Constitutional goverment—is leaping from the US to Canada. Let's hope the Canadian political system has a stronger immune system than ours did:
Christian activists have secured Conservative nominations in clusters of ridings from Vancouver to Halifax -- a political penetration that has occurred even as the party tries to distance itself from hard-line social conservatism.
At least three riding associations in Nova Scotia, four in British Columbia, and one in suburban Toronto have nominated candidates with ties to groups like Focus on the Family, a Christian organization that opposes same-sex marriage.
