Support for gay pride, no support for gay pride or both?


 

Having slept in his house, Rick Mercer attempts to get in Stephen Harper’s head.

But in the case of the Pride financing, Mercer believes the joke’s on us – either in the media or in the audience. It’s a classic case of sending two messages, Mercer thinks – first giving the money to gay activists and then, in a rare act of tolerating outspoken MPs, also conveying the message that Conservatives didn’t like giving the $400,000. “He’s managed to have his cake and eat it too,” Mercer says of Harper. “He’s managed to give them the money and act like he didn’t give them the money.”


 

Support for gay pride, no support for gay pride or both?

  1. “He's managed to give them the money and act like he didn't give them the money.”

    But what is the outcome? The recipients are happy he gave them money and the constituents are happy he appears to not have liked giving them the money? Or, the recipients are offended he didn't like giving them the money and the constituents are upset the money was given?

  2. I think Mr. Mercer and Be rad make the most sense yet, unless mr. Trost was just acting as a rogue with nothing to back up his claims.

  3. I am a proud lesbian but I cannot support an event that celebrates acts that both gay and straight viewers would find offensive and immoral if they were performed by straight people.
