Defend marriage and the family by calling a Royal Commission to study the issue.
Same Sex Marriage will have an enormous social impact on our nation. Therefore, we believe our parliament should have devoted ample time to examining the facts. Both Liberal and Conservative governments broke their promises to Canadians, as neither authorized any real enquiry into the facts.
France on the other hand, when faced with this same issue, appointed a Parliamentary Commission to carefully study the social implications of such legislation. The commission dedicated two years of examination and study, after which the report recommended against legalizing same-sex “marriage” and against legalizing same-sex adoption. The report stated: “The purpose of adoption is not to give a child to a family, but to give a family to a child.” Decades of sociological research now shows that children do much better with a father and a mother than with two “mothers” or two “fathers”.
In Canada, same-sex “marriage” was forced on an unwilling nation by the Liberal government of Paul Martin after only two weeks of sham “hearings” by a stacked committee; and the Conservative promise to defend the traditional family was cynically abandoned as soon as they were in office.
The CHP would appoint a Royal Commission, and give it the authority to do a thorough examination of the issue and suspend the legislation that allowed same-sex ‘marriages’ until the enquiry is complete.
