Wow. It's hard to believe this is the same guy who just a few years ago opposed protecting Canadian gays from hate crimes and said homosexuals should simply marry members of the opposite sex.
Now Stephen Harper's Immigration Minister Jason Kenney is standing up for the rights of Iranian gays to escape violence and even death in their home country to come to Canada as refugees. I commend his position. It's amazing how government and leadership aspirations can change a politician, eh?
Considering Harper's recent talk about 'evil' Iran, is a new foreign affairs theme starting to emerge?
